If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

they don't believe in Santa anymore do you tell them the truth or try to convince them he's real? 😭💔

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

Awhhh, that must have broken your mommy heart. 🫂

Hark! Harold the angel sings.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

I almost cried

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

All is not lost!!!

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

Give them nothing on Christmas. When they're sad on Christmas Day tell them it's because they stopped believing. Give them their stuff a day or two late and say that Santa sensed a sliver of belief in their heart and decided to bring the gifts because they believed again

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

I laughed but I couldn't do that! It would crush me seeing him sad.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

Tell them the truth. You don't want your kid being 14 and the last kid in school still believing in Santa Claus.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

I explained Santa is the spirit of Christmas. Kindness, giving, helping etc. Santa is as real as the meaning, I took them to s giving tree and let them pick a gift for someone on the tree. Told them, that was pretty real, Santa just has more magic to do that for the whole world.

Then threw them off with a boot print from the fireplace.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

This is actually a really nice spin

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

Thanks! It was the boot print, wasn't it?

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

Gotta keep that magic alive as long as possible, huh?

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

Preferably. It's the Spirit of Christmas! I hate Pointsettias, however!

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

We always do the giving tree at school but I forgot the deadline 😂 so we're going to do the toy drive the scouts are doing.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

PERFECT! Now, Go buy some jingle bells and a red flashfight and hike it up on the roof!!

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

I don't want to break any bones


I'm so sad though!

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

OH SHUT UP.

If he REALLY doesn't believe involve him. Let him eat the cookies left out. Let him become part of the magic for the sibling. They enjoy that!

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

Shiiiiiiit he's about to wrap his own video games lol I'm jk but I'll have to talk to the bf when little twiz goes to sleep and ask if we should just tell him.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

How old is your kid? If they’re younger than 6-7 I would still try to convince them he’s real. Believing in Santa clause was what made Christmas more exciting as a kid

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

He's 8. I'm still trying but he is not buying it.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

That’s how old I was when I found out. I think that’s normal

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

Pretty much. It is a sad time for the mommas, for sure.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

I can't remember how old I was when I found out but I'm pretty sure my one brother told me.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

I was probably around 8 as well and I was in the car with my dad and brothers and my dad started a conversation with “I guess you all know now that Santa isn’t real …” and we were like, huh?!? 😳

🙄🤦🏼‍♀️

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

It's kids at school, usually,. The jerks.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

I was 10 lol. A little late to the game, but I was also kind of deluding myself. Kinda had a feeling before that.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

Tell them they don't know for sure!

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

I don't think there's one right answer, but I'd probably tell them if they don't find out when they hit double digits. Maybe help soften the blow by having them get involved in playing Santa for the younger kids. That's what made me love finding out. Made me feel adult.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

Yup! My oldest would help a lot. He loved it!

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

I loved to eat the cookies.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

Not Santa, but I remember thinking hey, fhe Easter Bunny draws bunnies just like my mom does.

🖕

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

lol i would tell the truth. i think the reason why your kid is not believing it anymore is bc he might have heard it from other kids in school, or they told him about it, or he read it somewhere, so there is practically no way for you to keep up that lie anyway.

you still have your youngest one with whom you can live the Santa is real dream world. 😁

suck it.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

so you are actively promoting destroying an 8 year old's ultimate safe space, Santa?

twizlee: dont follow this irresponsible advice

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

well i'm not a mom, so i wouldnt really know anyway… just my two cents. 😬

suck it.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

he literally could’ve googled santa

all kids have ipads now

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

Lol I have Google blocked on his devices. He can't type in websites or anything. When he wants a new game I type everything in for him because it's password protected.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

I think I'm going to try a few more times and then tell him if he's still not convinced. Just not today because I'll cry.

you still have your youngest one with whom you can live the Santa is real dream world.
true lol but knowing my luck he'll find out when he's 5 or something and really break my heart.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

lol aw

suck it.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

Santa's not real?

When I am king you will be the first against the wall, with your opinion which is of no consequence at all.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER

I added a spoiler 😐 so it's your own fault.

Re: If your child tells you… SANTA SPOILER




I WAS CURIOUS, YOU WICKED BANSHEE!!!!
