At what age?

do your children stop believing in the Easter bunny; Santa Claus; the Tooth Fairy, etc?

My children are 9 and 4 and they both still beleive but also because we have raised them the Christian way they know the true meaning of Christmas and Easter.

  • I was wondering that myself. I have a 11yr old and a 4 yr old and both still believe. Good Question.

  • I think they start hearing the truth by first grade if they go to school (7ish). Then they 'play' the game for a couple of years then finally admit they know its not real.

  • I would say 8. I told my kids last year that is fake and I am enjoying the holidays a whole lot more. They are 6 and 8.

  • My dd knew around 7ish. I'd say 6 to 8, maybe even as old as 9 but I can't imagine a child over 10 still believing....
