Santa’s making a list and checking it twice, but just how far will kids go to make sure they stay on that nice list? According to a survey conducted by Walmart, kids will do just about anything. In the poll Walmart discovered that 68 percent of kids said they would clean their rooms daily for a year, while 84 percent would work hard and give up playtime. But kids were not as willing to eat their veggies; only 23 percent of kids would eat spinach for a year to get their holiday toys.
I was curious what parents thought their kids would do to stay on the nice list, so I conducted my own poll of parents on Facebook. Given four choices of what kids would do to ensure that holiday wish list is fulfilled only 18 percent said they would eat their veggies, 38% said they would clean their room and 55% said the would would be nice to a sibling. No one said kids would try to get good grades.
One commenter shared, “My daughter would rather not celebrate Christmas than have to clean her room. LOL!”
What do you think? What would your kids do?
