    Angry What Age Do You Tell Kids Santa Isnt Real????

    Hi all
    What age do u think is right for a child to be told Santa isnt real?????
    My ex to my utter disgust told my daughter last year (when she was only 6yrs old) that he wasnt real, because her current partner isnt much into xmas.......or come to think of it anything exciting!!!!
    It took me and a friend many months to convince her that he was real and was looking forward to surprising her with lots of things from 'Santa' only to find out my ex has once again told her he isnt real on the run up to Christmas.
    So..........when is the right time?
    I think before they start secondary school is fine...maybe a bit younger if they are bright/mature for there age.
    But 6 yrs old!!!!!!!
    Any replys much appreciated.
    Thanks in Advance.
    Chris.

    Wow. That's too bad. I don't think you need to explicitly tell a child Santa is not "real". As they grow older, they will figure it out on their own - or they will have this same argument with their friends.

    On a conceptual basis, however, Santa is real.

    I agree with the above.

    Chris,

    Are you an athiest or do you have any religious views? I would teach the concepts as mentioned here about Santa Claus. What he stands for. What the tradition is. You can wrap this up into pretty much any religion.

    I do agree.. usually they will find out by themselves. I do know that when my daughter stopped believing in Santa and all the other childhood myths.. I experienced a sense of loss.. like another link to a more innocent age had been broken..

    Talking Re: What Age Do You Tell Kids Santa Isnt Real????

    I agree with greydeadhead, my son was in second grade and the 6th graders came to his table and told all of them Santa wasnt real, so, when he asked me and my husband with those huge brown eyes , that said "Have you the two people I trust the most, in my whole short life, and love with my whole heart been lying to me my entire 7 years on this earth" well let me tell you I wanted to get my hands on the 6th grader who told my sons lunch table.
    So we said, well honey, if its n ot santa or the elves putting the gifts under the tree then, who do you, think did it, "he started crying and said you guys, cause i have been so naughty Santa never came to my house !"
    Now, we were in deeper than at the beginning of this thing, so my husband told him the truth, and we told him for us, the meaning is jesus, and he can beleive in santa as long as he wanted. He then told us wipping his face on my husbands shoulder , thats ok I still have the EasterBunny and ToothFairy, at least they are real. We didnt say a word.

    Poor Far Rider. I never knew santa existed until I was about 6 years old and went to a friends house and was told about the man who climbed down the chimny... I laughed my teeth out!

    There was similarly no easter bunny, halloween witches, etc. Us kids were just never told.

    My father was not happy with us when we let the commmercial christmas into my own kids life....

    None of them are warped for it, they grew up so far believeing in the magic of christmas and the real reason we celebrate it. None now belive in Santa but Im glad they got the idea that christmas is both a christian idea and a secular idea, as they have grown I have informed them only as they have asked questions about it.

    I think its wrong of your ex to tell your kids major changes in the ideaology you both shared without first discussing it with you.

    I recommend you hire some homeless guy and two midgets to dress up as Santa and elves, go to your ex's house and beat the crap outa step da'. Then give everybody lollypops.
