My parents never expressly told me that there was no Santa and I turned out fine. In fact most of the people I know just figured it out for themselves by the time they started school without their parents telling them. It's really a test of logic and deductive reasoning, if you can't figure it out without someone expressly telling you then there is reason for concern. That's just my personal feelings.
I remember the conversation that led my to the truth when I was only 6. "How does Santa get everyone presents in one night?" "He's magic." "Then how come I saw you putting presents under the tree last night?" I was actually happy that it was my parents and not Santa. It made me feel good they were behind it the whole time.
Tell him the Tooth Fairy isn't real either, and you throw his teeth in the trash.
That seems to be quite a common thing albeit creepy. I got a set with two little boxes when my son was born, one was for the first lock of hair that is cut off at the hairdressers and one is for the first tooth. Im not sure how i feel about keeping a tooth tbh :S I know people that have kept the bit of the umbilical chord that comes off, thats pretty sick for me.
You're 11 year old is DUMB. wow. it should be the other way around. now what are you going to do for Christmas since both your kids know?
