Best Parenting Tweets: What Moms And Dads Said On Twitter This Week

This week, we featured blogger Jen's viral rant about "Overachieving Elf On The Shelf Mommies" -- those who stage "elf pillow fights" making parents who aren't as creative (or simply don't have time for such shenanigans) feel sub par. And while Jen's tirade certainly struck a chord with commenters who are in the same boat as she is, Rhiana Maidenberg summed up her feelings about the holiday tradition in 140 characters. "The Elf on a Shelf makes me happy we celebrate Hanukkah," she tweeted.

Beyond the elf war, parents had much to say on Twitter this week about other not-so-great holiday traditions. Click through the gallery below to read them all -- and vote for your favorites!
