Daughter still believes childhood lie and I want to tell her the truth | UK | News UK News

A concerned mother says she is contemplating telling her daughter the truth about a childhood lie she still believes.

The woman said her 10-year-old daughter still believes Father Christmas is real, despite the fact she is about to start secondary school next year.

Taking to Mumsnet to ask for advice, the woman who posts under the name ‘TheGhostsOfMeAndYou’ said she thinks her daughter “knows really” but had not addressed the subject with her parents.

The mother said: “I want to tell her as I don’t want her going to secondary school and being picked on, or finding out from another child. But how do I do it?

“I feel so sad that another part of her childhood is over and I also worry that Christmas will lose that magical feeling.”

The majority of commenters on her post said she should not tell her daughter until it comes up, with many saying she probably already knew.

One reply read: “She’s not going to school till September? No need to do anything now, wait and see.”

While others pointed to Jacqueline Wilson’s book Christmas Cracker which they said would “do the job for you” as it supposedly hints that Santa is not real.

A number of other mums said they were dealing with the same issue, but most felt it was best left unsaid.
