You want to be the most giving parent possible.

You refuse to be a parental Scrooge at Christmastime.

How do parents limit the giving of gifts to their children on the very day of the year dedicated to showering gifts upon kids?

Parents who do so, well, let’s just say you’ll pray for their kids at Christmas mass.

Your kid, on the other hand, is blessed with you as a parent.

In spite of misguided parents creating the next generation of self-flagellating adults who have minimal regard for their own self-worth, you are determined that your child know her worth. And isn’t it your job to fulfill your child’s wishes to the full extent of your ability?

Of course it is.

Whether by good behavior, or bad – she will learn that a parent's love is always to be expected. You will teach her that rewards are hers just for being the light of your life. It is your duty as a loving, responsible parent to raise a healthy, happy, child in a society peopled with self-loathing miscreants.

Anyone who thinks differently can stick their miserly belief system up...well, they can just keep their Scrooge-oriented beliefs to themselves. You will provide Christmas for your child as you see fit.

And, for you, it’s about about your child’s ultimate fulfillment. Her supreme joy and knowledge of her worth. Her lack of wanting for anything, ever, based in the security of your ever-providing hand.

It’s about your love for your child.

It’s about gift lists completely fulfilled – no matter how long, or costly. It’s about stockings bursting at the seams. It’s about gifts piled high, right to the top of the Christmas tree star!

So, fa la la la la – la la la - la!

You want to be the most responsible parent possible.

You refuse to be one of those parents who empties an entire toy/gadget store onto their child’s lap on Christmas morning.

How can parents so carelessly squander the opportunity to teach their children the supreme lesson of giving and receiving on the very day of the year tailor-made for it?

Parents who do so, well, let’s just say you’ll pray for their kids at Christmas mass.

Your kid, on the other hand, is blessed with you as a parent.

In spite of misguided parents creating the next generation of entitled, me-centric adults who have minimal regard for anyone who doesn’t cater to their wishes, you are determined that your child not turn out to be one of those self-satisfying miscreants.

Your child will understand the value of earning a gift.

Whether by good behavior, good grades, or good deeds – he will learn that free rides are not to be expected. You will teach him that rewards are earned. It is your duty as a loving, responsible parent to raise a child who will be able to function in a healthy, happy, contributory way within society.

Anyone who thinks differently can stick their buy-me-love belief system up…well, they can just keep their materialistic beliefs to themselves. You will provide Christmas for your child as you see fit.

And, for you, it’s about about your child’s continued healthy development. His long-term, real-world happiness. His lack of irrational expectations stemming from a gimmie-me-mine-based upbringing .

It’s about your love for your child.

It’s about gift lists fulfilled in accordance with behavior. It’s about stockings bursting at the seams in reward of good behavior, and stockings hanging limply in response to bad behavior. It’s about life lessons piled high, right to the top of the Christmas tree star!

So, fa la la la la – la la la - la!
