To make them as stupid as they are.

Best Answer

The fact still remains though, that you are lying to your children. Plenty of parents from different countries and cultures choose not to do this and their children are not robbed of what life has to offer. Dont make it seem as if these lies are needed for the children to be children.

Best Answer

Maybe they think it will make them happy? It just dumb because the child will notice eventually. Kids are smart and will catch you when you lie.

Best Answer

I allow my children to be children before they have to grow up and realise how hard the world really is

We are still debating whether or not It's okay to tell your children about these thing's when it is not true, I think it is, Its not teaching them to LIE about thing's. It's just putting a little spirit into the christmas holiday's but it seem's it's just not for everyone.

Best Answer

Manipulation--sometimes it works. Comply, and you will be rewarded. And, like other traditions, it indulges our desire to relive our childhood.

"Look what Santa brought you this year!!" = Lie

Best Answer

What does it hurt?? It's not like kids grow up devastated because of it?
If when you have kids you don't want to tell them about Santa .. go for it. It's your choice .. just like it's others' choices to "believe" in him.

Best Answer

The point is that you're teaching them that it's okay to lie. Especially if they find out the truth at a young age, they'll just think that if mommy and daddy lie, then it's okay for them to lie too.

Best Answer
