The Merriman Household Bad Book

In 2014, Martha Merriman decided to start a Bad Book for the children in her home. She had gotten the idea from the Montoya family of Pleasantville (ourdolls.weebly.com). The Bad Book is a notebook where she writes down who has misbehaved and what they did. In December of each year, she counts up who was bad the most times and that child receives coal instead of candy, in her stocking at Christmastime.

Here is a look at the Bad Book throughout the years (entries at the beginning of a year will be at the bottom and entries later in a year will be at the top).
