If you’re a parent, you’ll know that Christmas may bankrupt you every year, but it does provide an opportunity to use it as a bargaining tool to get your kids to behave.
There’s the classic ‘if you don’t behave, Santa Clause will put you on his naughty list’ method that seems to work a treat.
However, one dad goes to the extreme each year to ensure his kids don’t misbehave.
The TikTok dad, who goes by the username @bennyg7070, has gone viral for sharing his method.
It’s a fairly simple method: every time a child is naughty, you throw one of their ‘gifts’ on an open fire. And you continue to do that until there are either no gifts left, or they start behaving.
“Christmas is coming, and here is a sure fire way to ensure your little darlings behaving proper.”
In the video, captions read: “With Christmas approaching, here is a top tip for parents. Wrap up some empty boxes and pretend that they are presents.
“Then each time one of those little f****** misbehaves, chuck one on to the fire.”
Now, obviously they are fake gifts, but people in the comments claim it’s still an extreme parenting style.
