What To Tell Your Children About Santa

While raising our boys. The topic of telling our children the truth about Santa became a regular seasonal discussion around our house. This subject can be really hard for parents. Especially a holiday so commercialized. Questions parents often ask themselves are: Am I taking my child's imagination away if I tell them the truth? Is a little white lie that harmful?
Do I wait until they figure it out from their schoolmates or older siblings? Lisa Bogle does a wonderful job sharing why she chose to tell her children the truth about Santa and the effects it has had on her family. I believe she sums it up perfectly. "Turn inside yourself and find out what feels right for you, yourself and your family."
I'd sure like to hear your thoughts on this topic. Please leave a reply and share with us what you teach your children about Santa.
