  • Oh dear! That is really mean and immature of your older brother! Personally, I am not a proponent of teaching kids about St. Clause because either way it's a lie and I don't like my kids to grow up to find out their mom lied to them. Maybe now's the time to let your kid know that there is not such thing, anyway, and he doesn't have to be afraid. He's probably to little to understand anyway, poor baby!

  • 1st of all tell your brother he's an ass for purposefully setting out to traumatize your son. Tell him I wish I could kick him. Tell your son that these characters are really ppl dressed up to put a smile on kid's faces & they would never want to hurt anybody. Tell him they don't know where you guys live & can't find him. Explain to him that your brother likes to say things that aren't true to scare him & he shouldn't listen to your brother when he tells him stuff like that. Tell your son he should always come tell you when ppl say things that scare him so you guys can talk about it & you can tell him the truth.
