See when i grew up i learned that Santa wasn’t real. I never even really cared about Santa anyway i just liked getting a new lego set. But now if i ever have kids i get to tell them that Santa was real he is just dead now. Im gonna build them up on the conspiracy that he is real like giving him or her a gift each year but once they reach 5-7 years of age im gonna one year drop the ball and tell them Santa is dead and hes been dead for a long time. What would be even greater is if i had the “advanced” kids that go into school and tell their peers that Santa was real hes just dead now. And then have all the parents at the PTA meetings come complain to me that their kids came crying home cause my kids told their kids Santa is dead. I gotta plan it out correctly. I gotta break the news to them before the other kids catch on so they stay ahead of the curve. Im gonna be a great parent hahaha
That’s so mean though!
Yes. Yes it is. But ill enjoy it. Especially the pissed off parents
Pissed off mothers are not a joke,
You’ll find out soon enough…
how mean indeed. why would you crush a child like that? some parent you’d be. sheesh.
We’re also forgetting that kids can just google that and learn themselves pretty quickly. Soon i doubt Santa will even be relevant because of the internet.
Don’t be mean about Christmas and stuff your kids will cry and you’ll feel bad.
Yep, my mother relished her moment of doing that on me at a tender age - lovely - NOT.
I love Christmas. The food. The jazz. The trees. Everything. And i wouldn’t just be like “Santas dead honey.” Haha. When they start doubting it i’ll explain to them what Santa as a symbol means to everyone as a way of giving back and even though he isnt around anymore he still brings joy to people as a symbol that we can all be happy by doing good things for others and being polite. In all seriousness though im gonna have my family volunteer for Thanksgiving and Christmas so they learn about giving back instead of just getting gifts all the time. I’ll still give them legos and constructive stuff but my family is gonna give back around the holidays so they learn that helping people is good and being selfish is bad. And like i said cause of google and youtube kids are gonna stop believing in Santa anyway. If i ever have kids by the time i have kids the first day of computer class some kid is gonna type in “is santa real.” And books about science and astronomy they can get those as gifts too.
Ok that’s better then. I thought you were gonna be like “guess what lmao” and I was just like omg no. But ok that’s a bit better.
No im that much of a horrible person haha. Im smart enough to know that theres a delicate balance between the fragileness of a child and what actually happens in the real world. I do want the kids that school the other kids in information though. Like when i explain to them about the reality of Santa i would want to do it in a way where they understand what i mean but also start slowly understanding the realities of life where they aren’t traumatized by it but are left with a better understanding that not everything in life is gonna be like Santa. I wanna start developing the duality of thought early in my kids so they aren’t just the gullible ones in school. Like if they get bullied they are hurt by it but also understand that the bully is hurting too. Or when they reach the age when they start smoking and drinking i’ll tell them that a lot of people do it while also explaining what it does to the body. Like with alcohol i see a lot of kids in the liquor stores and i doubt many parents actually explain any of that. Its more of “this is what grown ups do to feel good.” Without saying this stuff can hurt ur insides. I have to raise my kids where they don’t fear the world nor do they think its all sunshine and flowers but they have a better understanding of themselves and the world around them
And definitely not gonna be the parent who goes to my kids basketball games and yell at the other kids and parents and tell my kids its the other kids fault that they lost. If they lose a game just tell them that everyone will lose at some point and thats ok. Like i heard someone say “winners never lose” which is the most bs statement ive ever heard. Everyone loses from time to time. And also a saying i have liked is “u shouldn’t feel sad about feeling sad.” I would just simplify it to “its ok being sad.” Also not restrict them on what music they listen to. I won’t have them listen to hip hop right off the bat but if they find something thats not exactly “clean” i won’t be like “no u can’t listen to that.” Cause with my parents when i first started listening to “not clean” music when i was like 8 my parents tried to never let me listen to the explicit versions but i always found a way. Still haven’t figured out how i would teach them about some drugs though. Alcohol and weed is easy and the hard drugs is also pretty easy cause that stuff like crack and heroin is just terrible. But things like psychedelics and mdma im still a little confused about cause ive done my fair share and lots of really successful people have built a name on say lsd like Steve Jobs, the beatles, elton john, etc.
Though the one thing i would definitely restrict them on is guns. They can play airsoft if they want but im gonna make a strong emphasis that guns aren’t a toy and they aren’t good for anything except hurting people
If I have kids I’m going to teach them the true meaning of Christmas in three phases.
Phase 1: Collect underpants
Phase 2: ?
Phase 3: Profit
What Santa is Dead? I’ve got to get with the program!
Dude, I live 15 miles from North Pole, Alaska, where THE Santa Claus House is and the very street posts are done up like candy canes. Santa is alive and well there! And you can see him year round.
I thought santa was a time manipulating demon… forced to hand out presents to good humes once a year for stealing the immortal fruit from that mythical place in the clouds…
You’re on the right track, @Kazuma. He really was a person who is now dead.
It’s not cool to purposely want to upset, hurt or even disappoint children. Be nice. There’s enough disappointing crap in this world. Can children please just enjoy their childhoods before all too soon being hit in the face with the realities of this piece of sh** world?
You’re thinking of Prometheus or Sisyphus.
I take it you’re joking.
If you’re serious then I would just say that people have only one childhood and believing in Santa or the Easter Bunny or whatever is not bad for them. No use wrecking the innocence of a poor child. The reality of the world shows up all too fast, let kids be kids while they can. And besides, that’s cruel, a good parent would not do that.
But I’ll assume you’re joking.
