For parents with older children...

What age did your kids stop believing in Santa Clause? My daughter is 10 and recently admitted she knows the truth.

  • It must be around that age because my 10 year old just admitted the same thing to me. My 8 year old still dont no to beleve it or not. So i would say about ten yrs. old.

  • My 11 year old son has known the truth for some time now. But he still expects his stocking to be stuffed by "Santa". He even still expects an Easter egg basket on Easter. Even though he knows, he still wants to believe.

  • I am pretty sure she still believed at 7 or 8, but by 10 she definitely did not. She's 14 now and still plays along for your little brother and sister. I stopped believing when I was 7 because I accidentally found the gifts my mom had hidden.

  • My first was 9. Second is ten and still believes. I think alot of times they just don't want to believe there is not one.

  • My kids started asking when they where about 10. We have always taught them about the spirit of the Holiday so while they know the truth, they still love the magic of the holiday.

  • My oldest is 14 and still believe in Santa. He may just be going with the flow but he certainly hasn't let on that he suspects or knows any different.

  • My niece is 8 now and told us this yr there was no santa. My son is 5 months and we told her next year she cant be saying that because we want him to believe in santa.
