“Dear Santa….” I hear my sweet girl’s voice as she is writing her letter to Santa. “How are you? Is it really cold at the North Pole? I promise I have been good this year. I would love a cell phone….”
I know there is more to her list. But my first thought was “WHAT??!!??” Followed by, “I don’t care WHAT Santa thinks, but no seven year old of mine is getting a cell phone!”
But this isn’t a kid-cell-phone debate. This is a, “Wow…. I could have one very disappointed little girl on Christmas morning…”
Surely, I’m not alone…. parents everywhere have to face a potentially disappointed child during the holidays. Some wish lists are too expensive. Or not appropriate (what? a CELL PHONE?) Or you are simply philosophically opposed to granting those certain holiday wishes.
Do you have a character building talk? A Letter from Santa? Leave it up to tough love?
Watch and weigh in…
