Internet-Shamed Mom Defends Viral Photo of Christmas Tree Covered in Presents.

The mom who posted a photo of her Christmas tree swamped by an enormous pile of 300 presents has lashed back at online haters who accuse her of “abusing” her kids. A mother is defending herself on Facebook after a picture she posted of presents almost reaching the top of her family’s Christmas tree has gotten her some unwanted attention. The Instagram photo that Emma Tapping posted last week quickly went viral but now the 35-year-old Isle of Mann woman says she’s not an overindulging Grinch when it comes to showering her three kids—daughters, 13 and 9 and a son, 19-months—with lots and lots of wrapped gifts, the Sun reports. She says she starts her Christmas shopping in January and the dozens of presents she has purchased total just $2,300 in U.S. dollars. “The way I see it is you could buy your kids two presents or 200 presents, it’s the way you bring them up,” she told Thursday’s “This Morning” TV show in the U.K., according to the Sun. “You could buy your kids two presents and still have a little terror. Just remember there’s are a lot of children who won’t get much,” according to NBC News. “I know this page is going to get busier and I know I am in the papers today so I thought I would set people straight on a few facts,” she wrote on her Facebook page Thursday. “This picture was put on my Instagram along with pictures of homemade decorations I had made with the kids. 1 picture of the tree.

My kids know the difference between right and wrong and they appreciate everything they get and they don’t get (spoiled) throughout the year.” “I’m not rich at all, which is the first thing I wanted to point out because it’s been put all over the Internet after it had been taken from Instagram that I was rich and I spoil my children,” she said. Several days after sharing the snap, the mom of three was tagged in a photo on Facebook with the caption: “It’s nearly time for all the materialistic parents to compete and broadcast how many presents their kids have. She also said the presents were not just for her children, but for herself, her partner and her parents – and she is taking steps to make sure they reach their intended recipients. “For those saying I am advertising to be burgled. It was not done as a ‘bragging parent.'” The heaping pile of presents, meanwhile, was not only intended for her young ones. “The presents under the tree are for my children, myself, my partner and my mother, not just the kids,” she noted. “Please try and remember this is about 3 little children, their christmas, their tree. Merry Christmas xxxxx.” “I love Christmas and I shop savvy to give [my kids] a good Christmas,” she told the site. “I would happily help anyone find the bargains or give tips on how I save.
