Santa has a few thoughts...about parents

Posted:

ROCHESTER (KTTC) -- I talked to Santa this weekend in Rochester (I ran into him at a Rochester store where he was taking pictures with kids).

Anyway, Santa confided in me that his job would be much easier...without the helicopter parents. I recently heard Santa expressing the same sentiment while visiting another part of the state. "My job would be so much easier without parents!" Santa says he's been visiting malls for many years, and parents should realize it's not his job to restrain their kids.

So, listen up parents if you read this, and if you plan on visiting Santa anytime soon!

Oh, and by the way, one of the top gift requests kids are making this year? New cell phones. I remember as a kid Santa brought me Play-Doh, and I thought I'd died and gone to heaven! How times have changed...
