Charity Shaw-Moyado, administrator at the Rosecrance Berry Campus, was quoted in a story in Wednesday’s Rockford Register Star focusing on the holiday tradition of the “Elf on the Shelf.” She says she’s had an elf visit her own home for the past three years and sees it as a fun way to celebrate Christmas.”We frame (the elf) as it’s Santa’s helper, and he sees you doing good things, positive things,” Charity says in the story. “He reports to Santa that you cleaned your room, you brushed your teeth — reinforcing good behavior, which is what all parents want to do.” She warned, however, against using the elf as a “boogie-man” type being or threatening children with its use.
