You know how kids can sometimes be right little shits?
Hard to believe, I know, but they CAN!
Particularly at this time of year, when it’s hitting the end of year, everyone is tired, overwhelmed and stressed, and the shops have got all their BEST toys on display, perfectly located for the most tantrum-inducing effect, all so that frazzled, frustrated parents will purchase said toy and sales go up …
Anyhoo, that has gone way off topic … but right now, everyone in the house is overtired, grumpy, whiney and intolerant of anything and everything.
You’re tired and stressed, worrying about who to get what, or what to get who, or something, for Christmas, you’ve got in-laws, out-laws or your own family to deal with, there is Christmas fare to be organised and all the rest of it with this allegedly ‘merry’ and ‘festive’ season.
The kids … oh, MAN! They are just becoming more feral!
End of year will do this to people.
However, this is a silver lining.
This time of year also brings with it the opportunity to drag someone else in to help get the kids to think about their behaviour and get back into line.
Yup! Good old Santa!
Not just the Bringer of Gifts, but also the Bringer of Sanity in the leadup to Christmas.
Hurrah for Santa!
Parents the world over (or, at least in the Santa-visiting parts of the world) have, for generations, resorted to “I’ll tell Santa” or “Santa won’t bring you toys this year if you keep being naughty!” in order to get their kids to behave in a more socially acceptable manner.
It is, of course, a perfectly good means of encouraging nice behaviour because, let’s face it, if you’re left to your own devices this next few weeks, things could very well go badly.
Which is why Real Mums have a range of Letters from Santa; a selection of three, fully personaliseable options all designed to back you up and support you in getting your kids moving from Naughty to Nice.
Kids having tantrums?
Don’t worry, you’ll have it sorted.
Kids not doing what they’ve been asked to do?
Relax, we’ve got it covered!
Kids just being right little arsefaces?
If you really want the kids you want this festive/ school holiday season, then you need Real Mums Letters From Santa
