How to Tell 10year Old Santa Isn't Real?

Ask a Question

Hi all,

My daughter told me this morning that she knows santa isn't real. (Found out from her friends) she asked me if it really was me and her dad. I chose not to answer her properly as I didn't have the heart to 'ruin the spirit of believing'

I know it needs to be brought up again and she needs to know but have no idea how to tell her.

How did you explain to your kids? Did you use any ideas to keep the spirit going? She has a 7 year old brother too who still believes. I dont want her to ruin it for him too. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

I went through this with my daughter. I didn't explain she just figured it out in her own time

Say some presents are from him and others are from you or her dad.

I suggest the Santa magic continues at least for Christmas 2020 and 2021 and both your children can enjoy it.

Of course Santa is real. Take a look here, and get the children to write their letters. https://www.royalmail.com/christmas/letters-to-santa

These days Santa is really really busy, especially with the toy shops being closed, so sometimes he isn't able to write back to everyone. And sometimes his sacks of letters go walkabout! If that happens a secret elf (aka-you) is drafted in to help Santa out at the last minute, to write and deliver the reply letters just before Christmas.

Watch out though. Somebody told me if you don't believe in Santa he doesn't bring you any more presents once you're 12.

Try asking her this question?

" if Santa is not real who brings ..... presents then".... fit in a name of a person she knows whose parents are not alive. .... I did this with my daughter years ago.... I was a single parent and my parents had both passed on when she was a toddler..... it gave her an extra year or two of christmas magic .... hope thus may help you xx
