STFU Parents: This Holiday Season, Don’t Brag Online About Spoiling Your Kids
6. Mom’s Gold Star Palate Cleanser
As a Facebook user and an adult, I’d much rather read a refreshing update about a parent re-gifting her kid her own stuff than read about a baby’s #shoeaddiction. (Especially when the kid’s only been walking for a year.) Katy’s sneaky version of gift-giving on her daughter’s birthday rivals the boldness of canceling Christmas, and if I had to make one Christmas wish (even though I’m Jewish), it would be that more parents practice these versions of celebrating. In the meantime, all I ask is that people avoid posting the ‘Great Wall of Presents’ photos this season. The holidays are about generosity, not building fortresses out of dozens of individually wrapped toys for your kids.
