I figured this would be appropriate. My daughter is 11 and is one of the last kids that still believes in Santa (in her grade). She has begun to ask questions, so I am wondering what age I should tell her about all of that.


I would say whenever you feel you should have the Santa talk, have it. I was 10 when my mom told my brother and I. We cried..but got over it. It wasn’t a big deal by next Christmas and my parents still continued to mark a few gifts from “Santa” every year, even though we knew better. As parents, we can’t force them to believe, but we don’t want to lose that innocence.
