Personally I would be upset at this! Christmas is a magical time for kids believing in santa! Especially when you see all the bad things on the news everyday! Its nice to have something nice going on elsewhere. Even if it is just imagination. And it doesnt do much for the bond between kid and parent when they turn round and say 'my teacher said santa isnt real.' What do you say to that!? 'Ah yes I lied to you... Sorry!' They'll never believe a thing you say again!

I'd have been hacked off if this was my kids.
Who has the right to tell kids that age, or of any age what they can and can't believe in, or try to persuade them otherwise?
I have a real issue with this kind of thing

I've got a great grasp of one thing. I know that behavioralists and psychologists spend a lot of time putting their problems on others.
My daughter knew right from wrong at a very young age.
She knew that Santa wasn't real at a very young age.
I never had to force her to be kind or giving. She is a very sweet girl who is kind to people because she wants to be.
She understood right and wrong very early in life.

That`s the problem with this world, no imagination. Were not suppose to have one, not when we have others doing our thinking for us. Let`s all just shut our minds down and get it over with.

If this happened to my children I don't think I would be outraged. But I would be disappointed. I like that my 9 and 6 year olds still believe in Santa. In a world where kids see and do a lot more then they should..a little Christmas magic is an ok thing.
