What did these foster parents have to lose by not telling these children the Easter bunny was fake?

I'm on the fence here because sure, nobody is required to believe in the Easter bunny and deep down I'm sure most kids know it's not real. But why take that away from a child? What harm is it too believe in this?

I think that these parents are not guilty of exposing the truth about Easter and bunnies, I think they are guilty of manipulation children's minds to align with their own thinking and beliefs.

It's Grey but I take it personally. I believe in conspiracies. I believe that governments are a fraud. I would NEVER tell my children my beliefs on those those issues or any issue that is up to them to decide how they want to see the world.

Then you don't know what parenting is.

I have three sons and they are all informed that the Easter Bunny isn't real.

That way, they know their father and mother aren't liars.

That's revolutionary

No wait, that's stupid. I guess you jumped right past the birds and the bees and showed them exactly how to make children right from the get-go?

I hope most of you are enjoying the day with their children and their imaginations. And for the rest of you, congratulations for teaching your kids that the world is a #y place and they should forget about fun or imaginations.

Now your just goal post moving, another logical fallacy.

Offerings do not need to be placed in front of an effigy to constitute an offering to that idol. And it doesn't matter what you think your doing it for, your repeating the same action. If I sacrifice a goat, but say it's for Jesus and not Satan, is Jesus ok with that?

Guess it's time for you to move that goal post again.....

Actions speak louder than words. And What idols do you speak of? NO doing a action that is not in mind with th eOLD ACTION changes it to a NEW ACTION. Different motivations in other words.

Your bias is showing. Easter sunday is just about the resurrection no matter your Opinion.
The other part is COMMERCIALISM. No Pagan gods required.

ANd why sacrifice a goat? thats OLD TESTAMENT covenant. CHristians are New testament covenant. We dont even have to keep the sabbath. We have 3 things to do thats it. If we were under OT covenant You might have a point but since we are not your argument is moot.

I look back at my childhood as magical and joyful. I am thankful they brought the Easter bunny into my life with the candy soft stuffed bunnies, little toys and hunting for eggs around the house. How do you know your kids don't feel left out and wish they could celebrate like other children? Not saying they do, but it's a valid question. I never thought back then of my Parents as liars. I thought wow, they brought me fun and magic and that's because they love me so much. I think most kids felt the same way.

I would say why is this kid so #ed up they need an imaginary friend?? I cannot recall anybody in my childhood or met any parents with kids who have ever had one. The only place I have heard of kids with imaginary friends are in movies and broken families, probably due to a lack of attention from the parents.

We had a great Easter egg hunt and then visited my grandmother with everyone for a couple hours. Children do not need to be conditioned to accept and believe in lies in order to celebrate a holiday.

As far as birds and bees, more feel good bull#. Each one has been and will be educated on human anatomy and reproductive processes from their first year in school. Better they hear the truth from the most trusted source in life than to get a hundred ridiculous theories from ignorant uneducated peers who's parents are too afraid of explaining the real world to them. Nobody is doing their child a service by trying to treat them as if they are unable to grasp the real world.

Children who are raised with love and by parents who refuse to hide the world from them grow up with a better chance of success in life ensuring the genetic line passes on to preserve the human species.

It is my experience that children who were too into the myths and fairy tales end up being overly sensitive adults who cry and whine about the littlest things, and have to stay on anti-depressants for years just to get by in life. Thats just my experience though.

I don't want my kids to be loaded on anti-depressants in teenagers/adulthood because someone who did not like their hairstyle or choice of attire causes them to just sink into a dark place for weeks at a time. Anti-depressants are bad, they just fuel a up and down cycle that eventually leads to suicide in the end.

Probably had a parent that was angry all the time and needed somebody who was nice and let them use their imagination once in a while.

Yea, angry parent sounds like it falls under "broken family". I think I would be a bit creeped out if I ran into a kid with an imaginary friend. Could be talking to ghosts or something too.
