    My answer is "heck no"

    poll didn't seem to work for me

    NO tooth fairy
    NO easter rabbits
    NO santa claus
    NO boogeyman
    NO white savior
    NO little red man living inside the Earth
    NO leprecauns

    INTERESTING QUESTION !!! DES my kids are grown now but when they were tots Yes I did I allowed them that fantasy I help them make thier list and hang em in thier stockings (thats was my shopping list) I'd even leave out the milk and cookies ( I would go as far as biting a cookie and drink some of the milk) no presents under the tree until after mid night (we still do that till this day)

    Now I had a friend that use use to say to me "there is no way he's gonna bust his butt buy all this giftsf and let some fat white man in a red suit take the credit" He wanted his kids to know that the white man ain't giving them nothing and that it was mommy and daddy buying all thier gifts. I never did the tooth fairy thing or the Easter bunny but some how even though I agreed with what he said I felt that the real world was comming round the corner soon enough (hate prejudice foul mouths stealing and murder death sickness) I let them have that cloud of joy, until they were old enough to understand!

    Definately NOT!!

    I feel I shouldn't lie to my daughter.
    I want her to grow up knowing that your word is your bond.
    Therefore, I don't lie to her at all.

    it never crossed my mind to teach my babies that santa claus was coming. they tell the grandparents, my husband, and me what they want for christmas. i'll probably do the tooth fairy thing because that was just so much fun when i was a child. my kids are smart, they'll always figure out the truth.:spinstar:

    When my kids saw the big guy in a red suit around Christmas time, I agreed that he was Santa Claus....but I did not ascribe any magical qualities...he was a symbol of the season...no more. Further I let them know that <I> was their Santa Claus.
