Shantel Green, a mother of two, brought her kids nightmare to life as she canceled Christmas due to their "naughty" behavior.


In a recent interview, Mrs. Green confirmed being sick and tired of her somewhat recalcitrant kids and altered Christmas celebration in her home by banning presents.

After making sure ‘Santa didn't go visiting’, she set a camera to film the moments the children realized there was nothing under the tree for them.


For this mother of two, money was not the issue but rather the necessity to teach her kids to behave well.

Apparently, the kids weren't used to not getting presents, and this was a harsh realization for them.

Her children, Jon-Pierre and Jessica, were, of course, very sad as they relayed their expectations for Christmas. Jon-Pierre wanted a Tinky Toy Transformer while Jessica wanted a new doll.

But their mother would instead get gifts for their well-behaved neighbor's children.


The-Grinch-mom development isn't new as in prior times a Utah mom, Lisa Henderson after describing her kids as ‘ungrateful’ alongside her husband decided to cancel the present-giving part of Christmas.

“Our kids have been acting so ungrateful lately. They expect so much even when their behavior is extremely disrespectful,” she said.

Henderson and her husband both confirmed their plans to spend the money for their kids presents on service projects and giving gifts to others.


Another mom of three from Queensland Australia was not happy with her children's behaviors and issued a stern warning through her proxy elf, Elsie. She wrapped the entire Christmas tree in plastic wrap and taped a note to it. The note read:

“Christmas is canceled for now! If you want me to keep visiting, a Santa visit and your free presents back your behavior needs to improve. Santa is very angry, and I’m disappointed. Be good and say sorry to mum. You all have one week to improve. I’m watching.”

Having taken these measures to see to it that their children’s behaviors improve for better socializing in the family, we hope that parents get their desired results and don't have to keep playing "The-not-so-cool Grinch."
