Parents and Belief in Santa

Parents and belief in Santa is the topic of this newest episode. Based on several messages recently received here at this candid discussion covers many difficult questions.

We have the case of one boy, age 11, who is being bullied by his older brother for believing in Santa. How would you handle this situation?

Elf Frank Myrrh talks with Elf Crash Murphy about the dynamics of belief in Santa in families. Siblings rarely agree on anything but the situation where some believe in Santa while others do not can make Christmas – and tracking Santa – interesting.

But even more perplexing is the case of Jillian, who is 15 years old, having to deal with her Mom saying Santa is not real and what she should do about it. Her mother says she has been buying presents, stuffing stockings and writing letters from Santa for all of Jillian’s life. Jillian just doesn’t know what to do about it.

Frank is a little surprised at Elf Crash’s answers to that situation.

And finally, the question of what do you do when you believe in Santa but he never shows up to your house is addressed.

These are all complicated issues.

This is the first in a couple podcasts answering real questions from Santa trackers that Frank and Crash hope to push out before Santa takes off this year.

    Something tells me Jillian can’t just choose to be happy. Hearing your parents say “Santa isn’t real” would be life shattering especially with Christmas around the corner. This year year will definitely be hard for her no matter what. I hope Jillian finds a way to get through it and feels better someday.

    Certainly, their parents buy presents and pretend to be writing letters from Santa. I think Santa helped me when I thought about presents and letters for my son. If you believe Santa is real, the presents are from him by his parents or people. (In this episode, I’m very happy to hear the answer to one of my questions. Thank you, Frank, Crash, and Max!)
