Presents put to waste

By Alycia J.
Canada, Age 10

It's almost christmas and parents are out to shopping malls and buying things for their young(s). But when it is christmas day, the children are pretty angry when they see their gift. Because it's not the right one, or it's the wrong size. 50 percent of canadians and 56 percent of americans get mad at their parents. Those canadians and americans have such a temper that they go to the woods or to the lake and throw their presents there. Some throw the christmas tree to their mom or dad. 70 percent of parents take all their presents away and then they start behaving. So that is the solution for the problem: take their presents away until they have to accept that present(s).
