What To Say When Your Kids Ask If Santa Is Real?

Santa Claus is one of the most feared topics as a parent. You pretend to send the letter to Santa knowing well that it was a waste of a stamp and then attempt to get everything on your kid's list. Often it's hard to explain to your child why Santa didn't get the $600 doll house or iPad they wanted.

Regardless, when someone tells your kid that Santa isn't real and they ask you about it, it's a traumatic conversation for you. So here's how to handle the most feared question, "is Santa real?" like a boss!

When They Ask Why You Lied

When your kid already knows the truth there's no denying it anymore. Yup, you were the one leaving half-eaten cookies and dollars under pillows. The thing you have to worry about now is them asking what else you've lied about. The Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, what else was your evil doing?!

Just say it's what your parents did so you had no other option.

About The Mall Santa

When the mall Santa's beard falls off what do you say?! Say that Santa hires assistants to take pictures with children since he can't be everywhere and for plausibility to make sure he gets the requests of children right.


Pretend you didn't know. It's a shock for both of you and now you will need to deal with this tragedy together, with milk and cookies to cope.
