‘Santa Claus doesn’t come to naughty kids’: The mum who CANCELLED Christmas and filmed her children’s surprising reaction
- One mother followed through on her threat of cancelling Christmas this year
- She claims her two young children were not well-behaved enough for presents
- ‘Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind,’ she said in defense of her decision
It’s a threat most parents make to their children, but few have the heart to follow through.
But one mother decided to cancel Christmas altogether to teach her ‘naughty’ children a lesson.
Shantel Green said her children Jon-Pierre, seven, and Jessica, six, were too badly behaved to receive gifts this year.
She told A Current Affair her ‘spoilt’ kids had misbehaved and refused to help her with housework, leading her to cancel the day for them entirely.

Jon-Pierre told the cameras he was hopeful Santa would give him a Tinky Toy Transformer and some Lego, while Jessica wanted a new doll.
But when the children woke up on Christmas morning, they found no presents and a letter from ‘Santa’ informing them they wouldn’t be receiving any presents.
However the two children didn’t seem too bothered that they weren’t getting their presents and proceeded to play outside.

‘Santa Claus doesn’t come to naughty kids – not at all,’ Mrs Green told 9News.
She added that her children don’t help out around the house, even though they are ‘old enough’.
The mother-of-two justified her actions by saying: ‘Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind.’
