Yesterday my 8yr. old son came home and asked me if the tooth fairy was real. He just lost another tooth a couple of days ago and was telling friends at school and they were telling him there was no such thing it was just his parents leaving him money. I was caught off gaurd and so I kept the lie going. I don't mind if he knows the truth. I just don't want him ruining it for his younger brothers and sister. He has a big mouth and doesn't keep secrets very good. I was an only child so I don't know how to handle this with more kids involved. My hubby just wants to tell him later today and hopes he keeps quite. But I don't know please Help!!!!Answer Question

It absolutely does not break their heart to find out the truth after they are older!!!!!! It hurts not getting to celebrate the magic when they are kids. Why not let them have awe inspiring magic and not introduce them to the cold hard adult world so soon. I had loads of fun when I thought they were real and while playing the part for my son. I feel so sorry for your kids. That don't get to have imaginations and fantasies. Wheres the fun in just knowing mom and dad put it in there. I love the look on a little ones face when they believe in these things and get to wake up to what was left. Way better than greedily running to see what the parents left. My son alsways stopped to see if Santa ate the cookies and if the reindeer ate the magic food on the lawn. The awe on his face was priceless.
