What to tell the kids about Santa Claus Knowing the right responses to children's questions about Santa Claus may cause parents concern. Some parents question whether they want to in- clude Santa Claus in Christmas at all. Other parents worry about telling children Santa Claus isn't real. Margaret Marius, Washington State Universi- ty's King County Extension agent, states that an understanding of child development may help to provide some answers. Up to the age of two, the man with the oversized tummy, the deep laugh and the woolly beard produces only fear. So, don't be sur- prised if a child hides behind parents or howls in protest when she/he sees Santa in the toy store. By age three, children recognize that Santa Claus delivers toys--supposedly. However interest in Santa is mild. But, by age four, Santa Claus is in. Four-year-aids believe in jolly old Saint Nicholas, complete with the flying reindeer. And, they want to hear all the details of the story over and over. The strong belief in Santa occurs at ages five and six. Children of this age believe Santa is a real person. He or she likes to write or dictate letters telling Santa what she wants for Christmas. The wonder and enjoyment that most children experience at this age may offset tem- porary disapp ointe later, usua I After six, belief begins to go down, nO rnl ter what parents saY.. j If a child asks, "Is !he1! real Santa Claus?" flnu . what she/he wants know.,,Ask ,'what do Y! think?
