For those of you that don't want to teach your child about Stanta (if he applies to your life) or tooth fairy, etc. becuase you want them to know the truth their whole life. How do you handle imaginative play? Do you pretend to eat your childs mud pie or pretend to be a tickle monster to play? Do you tell them Dora or Elmo isn't real? Where do you draw the line between imagination and telling the truth. And is there any real harm in letting your child believe in the fairtale/wonder that the image of santa/toothfairy/etc creates?
Just looking for ideas on the subject.
