Call me a Scrooge, but…
We do NOT have an elf on our shelf in our house.
❌ Hell no.
(If you have an elf on the shelf and it brings joy and magic to your whole family, just skip this, it isn’t for you.)
I don’t need one more thing to keep track of during the holidays, and I don’t want my kids behaving solely because of the constant threat of the elf catching them.
Believe me, I know:
🥕 Kids WILL behave to get a new toy or to avoid losing screen time.
🦴 Just like a dog goes in her kennel to get a treat or stays in the yard to avoid a shock.
