Who here believes in 2012? And should you tell your kids?

My DH believes the world as we know it will end in 2012 and has passed his knowledge on to the kids. All are under 10. Well they came to me and asked if they were all going to die what is the point in learning stuff not needed to survive. What to say?

  • I'd tell mine that Daddy is a jackass (he-haw) and likes to tell scary stories. You will learn long division and like it.

  • Whether I believe in it or not...and i don't...but why tell the children so they can panic and live what he thinks is the last few years of their lives in fear and confusion. I dont think he should be telling the children....If I only had a certain amount of time to live I dont know if I'd want to know. imagine what that could do to a child. let them live to the fullest.

  • Y2K all over again. He's an alarmist with radical beliefs. How completely irresponsible to tell a child that kind of nonsense.

  • The only thing that is going to happen in 2012 is that the Mayan calandar is going to start again from the beginning. And everyone who thought the world was going to end is going to feel like an idiot. Shame on your husband for scaring your kids like that.
