Maybe you’ve had this conversation with your own kid.
You wouldn’t be the first parent to do so.
Kids think they’re so smart… are they really?
Watch this awesome gif with that perfect response for the kid that knows everything.
Don’t you wish that you had that innocence again?
Do you remember when you could enjoy the bliss of believing in magic — like the magic of Santa bringing presents while you sleep on Christmas Eve?
Those kids should just embrace it instead of growing up so fast, don’t you think?
The world has enough trouble when you get older.
Research in the Journal of Cognition and Development in 2011 shows that 83% of 5-year-olds think that Santa Claus is real, the study’s lead author, Jacqueline Woolley, wrote in The Conversation last year.
“We have found in more recent studies that that number of 85% sounds about right,” said Thalia Goldstein, assistant professor of applied developmental psychology at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
“Children’s belief in Santa starts when they’re between 3 and 4 years old. It’s very strong when they’re between about 4 and 8,” she said. “Then, at 8 years old is when we start to see the drop-off in belief, when children start to understand the reality of Santa Claus.”
There will always be a cynic like this letter from a 6-year old profiled by CNN’s Jeanne Moos:
As children move from belief in Father Christmas to doubt, most tend to feel proud that they have solved a sort of holiday puzzle, Goldstein said.
“They now get to be part of this sort of more grown-up group of people that doesn’t necessarily believe in Santa Claus,” Goldstein said.
“If a parent finds that their child stops believing in Santa and is really upset about it, there are other options,” she said. “You can always talk about Santa Claus as being a spirit of giving. Or as a way to help others, or a way to think about people who maybe aren’t as fortunate as you are.”
