Okay, so my daughter is 11 years old and still believes in Santa Claus.
Normally, I would be okay with her believing for another year or two, but the past Christmas or two her belief of Santa is causing her to look at Christmas and her father and I a different way. For Christmas in our house, my husband and I generally get a lot of good presents, but we save the big, great, expensive parents for Santa to give to her. Lately, our finances haven't been what they normally are, so we usually can only get one or two really good presents for our kids (our other daughter is 18).
Last Christmas, our daughter saw the obvious lack of presents under the tree before Christmas and got very upset, and that was because we got her tickets to a Justin Bieber concert for her and 2 of her friends and of course myself to chaperone (which cost a little under 2,000 dollars). On Christmas, upon getting the tickets from "Santa", she wasn't very happy, because she said she wished Santa had gotten her 3 or 4 more tickets for more of her friends.
The same thing roughly happened the year before, and it is happening again this year. I don't want her to think we are doing a bad job of being parents, and I think Christmas makes her quite selfish as "Santa" doesn't have to worry about money.
Should I tell her, and how?
