Yes, there is a time for truth, but, do we need to set a date for it for everyone to tell? No, it`s up to each and every one of us to make that call.
Like I said before, as we grow up, we soon learn the truth, we don`t always need someone to slap our faces with it, do we? If telling little kids the
story about Santa makes the those children smile and be happy over the holiday, then what seems to be the problem? I agree with many on this. Why take
away something that is about love and giving? Is that what you want, a world that is stone cold with little or no heart? It`s not the idea about Santa
or Jesus, it`s the idea of loving one another, and the giving from one heart to another that is the point of the stories. The problem is, we need to
keep it in our hearts the year round, not just over Christmas. This is my opinion.
It now looks as though we want to make this all about what we teach our children. The do`s and don`ts of what we must teach them. And it all boils
down to..............not one of us has the right to tell each other how to go about it. Not one of us is an expert, we all use what is within us to do
the job. so let`s get off of this, ok? It just makes all of us look like a bunch of silly fools. Teach your children in the best way you know how to,
we don`t come with a book on parenting when were born.
