Should I Tell My Child the Truth About Santa?

Since becoming a mom, I’ve had a lot of feelings I didn’t expect to feel about holidays. I feel incredibly conflicted about Santa Claus. I never expected to put as much thought into something that seems so thoughtless. I mean, I believed in Santa as a kid — however, I did figure out at a fairly young age that he wasn’t real. My mom let my dad write the gift tags that year, and my dad has very distinct handwriting. I didn’t mention it that year, and maybe not even the next year. But because of this, I have always wondered, should I be the one to tell my kid the truth about Santa?

It is that time of year to “begin” teaching your children about your faith. Did you and your spouse discuss how you want to teach your children about each of your faith? Regardless of how you approach the topic, it is important to remember that you both made a commitment to each other to love and honor regardless of each of your faith. I strongly suggest setting up a game plan in being on the same page so when you do have the conversation, the children do not feel torn between either of the parents. Maybe religion is more important to you than your spouse? Are you a co-parent?

As parents raising the next generation, we have to be significantly more aware of the mentalities we’re passing down to our children. If we have any hope of creating a better future, we have to confront the problematic viewpoints we hold. Prejudices are something pretty much all people have. Whether it be from a previous negative experience, or because the thoughts were passed down to us, we need to acknowledge this reality. Because whether we know it or not, those prejudices and biases we hold are being passed down to our children.
