My children don't question whether he is real or not, my d/h is the one that tries to use it as a crutch to get them to try to behave all year. well santa will not get you ''anything''! is all he says, not that it's really a good thing to behave because it's better for your dad and mom to love you more. I am just sick to pieces that it's santa, and not our feelings. Anyone else is entitled to have their own style. After years of this day in and out, the stigma of santa is not really worth using. In my belief that it's best to listen to them and love them all year, and help them daily, and not give them the old santa trick line; is a better well rounded informed child that will respect me later on.
