    My brother used to be rotten from his birthday (Sept 23) up to Christmas. My parents kept threatening and threatening the lump of coal, but nothing they said changed his behavior. When he was maybe 6 or so, he woke on Christmas morning to a stocking with all the usual stuff but also with several rocks and a note saying, “Next year there won’t be any toys or candy, and it will be coal instead of rocks! Shape up!” He cried and cried and cried! But, guess what? Almost 25 years later, and he is still on his best behavior every year from his birthday to Christmas! LOL!

    Have you seen coal gum? I found it in the catalog from Uncommon Goods. My son was being a poo, and like with my brother, nothing I said to my son seemed to have any effect. So, that particular year (I think he was also 6), I ordered coal gum – basically it is regular gumballs but they are black. They come in a black box that has only the word “COAL” on it in big white letters. I put all his stocking stuff (toys, candy, some books) behind the couch, and I put the coal gum in his stocking with a note. The note explained why he was getting the “coal” and then said where to find his real stocking stuff. He was mortified! He cried so hard, and was so upset that he refused to look at his toys, candy, etc! It took several hours for him to calm down. I felt so bad! But, his behavior for the rest of the year really improved! LOL!
