Gift Snooping Goes Wrong
Can you help this mom out?
Every Wednesday on the Wakin' Up with CJ and Jess Show we turn the Wolf studio into a calm and quiet place that is really similar to your therapists office and do what we can to tackle any issues you might have.
We call it "We Gotcha Wednesday" and every week we pick one email from our inbox that is from someone looking for some advice with a problem they may be facing. This week we all learn the lesson that snooping for Christmas gifts can get you in trouble. Mom wrote us....
"Our 10 year old son found his big Christmas present this year. We told him not to go snooping through the basement, and he did over the weekend and found his big gift, a brand new smart watch. He’s been asking for one for so long, and now he knows he got one. My husband thinks we should take it back to teach him a lesson. I think he should still get to keep it, he’s been doing well in school, and it’s normal for kids to snoop.
Should we take it back, or let him keep it?"
OUCH! I've told the story before but when I was younger something similar happened to me and I got a stocking full of coal on Christmas morning and my parents made me sweat it out for like 15 minutes before they told me that Santa left my gifts in a different part of the house. Lesson learned!
What do you think they should do? Call or text us through the Wolf app.
Melissa texted us "Had this same issue my kids opened an Amazon package finding their gifts. I didn't give it to them. I actually had them wrap it up and give it to charity." Ed said, "I wouldn’t give for Christmas maybe hold off until his birthday or next report card."
How about you?
