My ds had asked me a few times started when he was 4 - 5 years old and I'd always think of a clever answer without outright lying to him but when he was 5, almost 6, he asked me to look him in the eye and to tell him the truth... he didn't leave me a choice.... I had to tell him and it totally broke my heart.

I let them figure it out themselves. I think my oldest was 6 or7 when she started to have doubts but I never came out and said anything one way or another. Whenever she questioned me about it I turned it back around on her and asked her what she thought about it. She's 10 now and my 2nd is 9 and neither of them believe really. they argue with their 8yo and 4yo sisters about it (they still believe) but not in a serious way. They seem to instinctively understand they shouldn't ruin it for the younger kids. They just like to tease about Santa and how sill it is. In the end we'll still be doing Santa until my youngest decides he doesn't believe any more. He's only 4 months so that's a long way off.

My son never believed. His teacher yelled at him last year for telling the class he didn't believe in Santa. He didn't tell the kids we said there wasn't a Santa just that he didn't believe. I received a lot of calls from parents told them my son can believe how he likes and has the same right to voice his opinions as their children. If they can force their myth down my sons throat he can push back with the truth.lol
