Should Santa Limit The Gift-Giving?

A mom took to social media to tell other parents exactly what gifts Santa should and should not be giving to their children.  This photo definitely riled some parents up and created some good conversations about Christmas, Santa, and gifts.  We want to know what you think.

Here are some of the comments:

“Parent my child for me, please. I don’t like having difficult discussions with them about the nature of the world, so if you could go ahead and change your Christmas ever so slightly, that would be great.”

“I know I’m not lying to my daughter and future kids about Santa. Presents are from mommy and daddy!”

“I am a mother of 4 children and no we don’t have a lot of money and I don’t agree with this post I try to teach my kids to be thankful for what they have been given and not to worry about what others have “you should only look into others bowls not to see if they have more but to make sure they have enough” they are always going to have to deal with someone having what they don’t so it’s better we teach them to appreciate then to be jealous.”

“Why doesn’t everyone raise their kids the way they want to and have everyone else worry about their own instead of what the neighbors are doing.”

 

The kids in our house are almost too old for Santa, but he always brought the stockings.  Santa wasn’t the primary gift giver, but we celebrated him and enjoyed the idea of Santa.  The last few years we have instituted the four gifts of Christmas: Something you want, something you need, something to wear, and something to read.  It makes things simple and they know all along our focus is not about the presents.  Of course they still get gifts from other family members as well.
