The beauty about not lying is never having to explain why you lied to begin with.

Mine is 8. He was starting to question it and I wad getting sick of him thinking that it's ok to upset me because even if I threaten to take away Christmas, Santa will still have his back. So we sat him down and told him that since he's already suspicious, it's time to come clean. We're Santa and now that he's a young man instead of a wee one, it's time for him to become a Santa too.

My kids never believed. We never pushed the whole Santa thing.

Your 15-year-old must know. Trust me, children learning the truth is not this traumatic event the anti Santa people want you to believe it is. 😉 They will be absolutely fine.

My 11-year-old just figured it out on her own. I know she knows the truth but she still likes to play that Santa is coming, and she still likes to look for the elf. She Would never tell her little brother the truth.

I never lied to begin with. I always wonder what kids think when their parents fess up to lying after telling them over and over not to lie.

We think “It was cool to have that magic.” I got to have fun pretending for my little brothers. I was the first to know the truth. Now I give the magic to my kids.

Op just sit the child you’re ready to tell, down, and tell them. Santa is simply part of the spirit of Christmas. Sure, he doesn’t actually come into the home on flying reindeer. That’s just a little childhood magic. Once your kid knows the truth it’ll make sense and be fine.

I'm sure the 15 year old knows. He's in high school, lol. I knew by like first grade but I didn't announce it to my parents.

Don't ruin it because of temporary financial problems
