Playing Santa is hard enough for parents to manage during the holidays without having to contort a mini elf doll into different scenes every day to trick your kids into behaving for exactly one month in exchange for presents you already bought them...
So, if you could certainly use a moment of cathartic laughter in-between rearranging your cursed surveillance elf, here are the funniest tweets we could find from parents who are about to stage a tragic shelf-related accident.
not going to do elf on the shelf bc i don’t want to teach my daughter that living in a surveillance police state is ok but mostly bc i am lazy
Lots of parents hate Elf on the Shelf but guess what, he doesn't have to be a narc or dress up in costumes or bring your kid a brand new bike every morning. You can just move him from the shelf to the windowsill while the kids are asleep and they will LOSE THEIR MINDS.
