    :ugh: What? Gay Marriage?

    If this is a serious post...personally, I don't think anyone should raise their kids with stupid fantasies such as that. Then again, I've never had kids... but I would never tell my kids a little fairy came to take their tooth away in the middle of the night :ugh: I don't understand what is so hard about being honest with your kids. Is it fun to do that sort of thing? I wouldn't know but I'd be open to hearing someone else's experiences.

    Kids have the right to have their fairy tales. I'm sure no one ran up to you when you were 2 and said, "Oh yeah? well Santa isnt real!"

    I was raised in a Jewish home so I don't think I would be phased or surprised if that happened to me as a kid. :hs:

    I believe telling kids fairy tales is no problem, in a story-setting... like bed time stories. Giving kids fantastical explinations for real-world phenomenon, on the other hand, is a stupid thing to do. Seriously, why is it so bad for kids to realize that it isn't Santa who brings them presents but their parents, or telling them it was the parents from the get go? Aren't holidays like Christmas supposed to be a time for family and love and all of those other happy cuddly things?

    I just think those things can be just as enjoyable without all the made-up crap. Seriously, what does a giant bunny have to do with the resurrection of Christ? (Easter) or fairies and teeth? Eh I dunno... just my own beliefs.
