woman what happens when your kids find out from some other kid that santa dosen't exist
and they confront you on it, or when you do finally break it to them then
they go into this what else are you hiding from me mood.
kids don't like being lied to period, even from mommy!!!
when I was growing I felt sorry for kids like yours.
What happens? Well, then the fantasy comes to an end a bit sooner than it would otherwise. No big deal.
You felt sorry for kids like mpatrick's? Or mine, since I told her the same thing? Why? Because they had a fantasy that brought them some wonderment and smiles? Or maybe it's the giggles when they see Santa that you feel sorry for.
then when they get older you suffer
tell them the truth or else watch that additude of not listening to you grow because their trust of you was abused.
Well, I'm sorry but you are just plain wrong. At least in my case. I didn't trust my mother any less because she told me there was a Santa. And my 16 year old daughter doesn't trust me any less because she I told here there was either. And you know what? My daughter listens to me quite well and she always has-even with the knowledge that Santa Claus isn't real. OMG the horror !! And you don't abuse a child's trust in you by giving them a fantasy of Santa Claus. Trust would be abused if you told them something harmful to them that wasn't true. There isn't any harm in Santa Claus. And I'd like anyone to prove to me that there is.
