As kids we all heard, “if you don’t behave, Santa won’t bring you any presents”, but of course we never believed it.

That is until now…

One mum has made good on her threat and gifted her kids lumps of coal instead of the really cool fort they wanted.

According to Kidspot, it was accompanied with a letter that stated: “I must tell you that I was only just able to place you all on the nice list.

“I have given most of what you all asked for but unfortunately I have seen some awful behaviour and been told that you fight too much and have no respect for mummy.

“As a result I have decided this year that the fort you asked for I could not give. Take this as a lesson… I’m always watching.”
