Christmas is just around the corner.

And for parents, that means making sure their kids don’t see what the gift you— I mean Santa, got them. Except one social worker thinks that isn’t such a great idea. And she has a relatively good reason for it.

She starts by saying:

I can not stress this enough. STOP TELLING YOUR SANTA AGE KIDS THAT THEIR IPADS, AND IPHONES, AND 200 DOLLAR TOYS ARE FROM SANTA.

CAUSE SOME FAMILIES CANT AFFORD THAT. LITTLE KIDS WONDER WHY THEY GOT SOCKS OR A COAT OR HAND ME DOWN TOYS FROM SANTA AND OTHER KIDS GOT AN IPAD.

And she further clarifies as well.

This is the second year I’ve had a parent cry to me telling me that their kid asked if they weren’t good enough or if Santa didn’t like them as much. Breaks my heart for the parents and the kids.

SO TAKE THE CREDIT FOR THE GIFT. SANTA DIDNT BUY THAT IPAD MOMMA DID OR DADDY DID. Leave the less expensive gifts from Santa. Be blessed you can afford what others cannot.

Obviously, this ruffled a lot of feathers for a lot of parents, but Dunn was adamant.

“Children view Santa as this person they can ask for whatever they want so long as they have been good,

They wait all year to ask Santa for that one gift because even if they realize they are poor, they truly believe Santa has no limitations or socioeconomic status. When they wake up on Christmas and see they have not been given that gift they are heartbroken”

There was a lot of controversy.
