How Should Parents Respond to “Santa Truthers?”

If you’re teaching your kids about Santa, you’re afraid that your children will meet one of those kids in school or on the playground. You know the kind: the ones who purposefully burst the holiday bubble by telling everyone Santa is a myth or a conspiracy theory.

On the flip side, if you’re not raising kids who believe in the big fat man with the red suit, you fear your kids will be the one to ruin it for the rest of the class.

How should parents deal with this delicate issue? Here are three parental responses. What are yours?

Lies We Tell Ourselves

I deserve good things in life.

I will have just one more cookie.

If only I could make a few, small changes, I will be happy.

I will cancel HBO after the free six month trial.

If only my spouse could make a few, small changes, I will be happy.

When I express my opinions, people find me interesting.

My job can and should fulfill me.

We will use that treadmill.

God wants me to be happy.

I don’t watch much TV.

My church should meet my needs.

I’m so over Facebook.

My success is due primarily to my own hard work and my intelligence.

I’ll use the credit card just this once.

My failures are due primarily to bad luck or the misjudgments of others.

They don’t like me because they’re jealous.

The God I believe in would not do that.

I’m smart.

I can change the world.

I can change my family.

I can change myself.

I’m a good person.

And now for the truth:  “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
