The only thing my daughter is asking from Santa is the Dippin Dots frozen dot maker. It's not age appropriate for her (she's only 3) and I read all the reviews on it and everyone has hated it, it apparently leaks and doesn't make dippin dots, just poorly flavored ice. I can't afford to get her something that doesn't work, and don't really have room for it to just be sitting around, but it's the first year she's told Santa what she wants and is excited for Santa. How do you explain it when Santa doesn't give the gifts they asked for?Answer Question

My son has asked for toys or food that was not age appropriate. He is four. I tell him that their are clear rules that adults (and Santa) have to follow. The rules on that game (toy, candy, ect...) is eight and up or what ever the age is and up. He doesn't argue but he does check for the age now on packages. Rules are rules and even Santa has to follow them. She will get over it. The surprise of Christmas and all that activity will more than likely make her forget her grief at not getting the item of her current dreams. The thing is...you are are a good parent for not getting it for her. You know that. And the gift of wanting, desire, and even disappointment are good life long lessons. That is a true gift. Imagine how hard it would be for her to never experience disappointment until she was an adult. You are developing her coping skills now.
