Mum of three comes under fire for seriously spoiling her kids with imprudent Christmas gifts



Mum of three has come under fire for seriously splashing out on her kids at Christmas with more than 80 presents each.

Emma Tapping, 27, from the Isle of Man, shared a picture of a ridiculous mountain of presents under the tree on Instagram. It cost around £1,500 and people lashed out at the overzealous gift-giving. People left comments on the picture accusing Emma of spoiling her children. Mum of three, Emma appeared on This Morning via Skype and defended her actions.


She said: ‘You can buy your children two presents or 200 but it is the way you bring them up. They could have two presents and still be a little terror.

‘My kids know the difference between right and wrong, they appreciate everything they get and they don’t get spoilt throughout the year, we don’t go on expensive holidays. ‘If they break something like their phone they have to save up their money to replace it.’

Mum of three added the family is ‘not rich at all’ and started shopping in the Boxing Day sales. When Emma clocked on to the fact that her Instagram picture had gone viral and people around the world were commenting on it,

she said: ‘Will I post another pics of my tree? You bet your grandmas nipples I will. Seeing as my picture has gone viral (without my consent!) here is my tree. ‘I LOVE christmas I LOVE spoiling my kids in the festive season and I work damn hard to make sure it is every bit as amazing as it can be. So 2 fat fingers up to all the judgmental ****holes.’

Is this too excessive for Children?
