I have a 9, nearly 10 year old who firmly believes in Santa and the Tooth Fairy still and has a few times this year mentioned being one of the only ones at school. I don’t remember anyone telling me, growing up. I don’t lie and say Santa is real but I do say I believe in the Magic of Christmas. I’ve been willing to leave it for her to figure it out but she asked me directly very recently and I had an honest stall moment where I wasn’t sure how to answer. We were ‘saved by the bell’ in that moment and I’m not entirely sure the best approach. Open to hearing other experiences!
