A father on TikTok burned fake Christmas presents to make his children behave - and people are outraged.
The father, who goes by @bennyg7070 on the platform, took a box adorned with festive wrapping paper and chucked it into a fireplace.
“With Christmas approaching, here is a top tip for parents. Wrap up some empty boxes and pretend they are presents. Then each time one of those little f****** misbehaves, chuck one on to the fire,” the on-screen text said.
People in the comments found this method problematic, with one person writing: “If you need to do this to get your kids to behave, then the issue is NOT with the kids.”
