Despite a person’s personal feelings over the fact that Christmas has become commercialized to the point that when walking through a department store these days you can find Christmas stuff being put up before the Halloween stuff is taken down; there are some things about the season that are still magical for young and old alike.
For example, there’s almost always something that someone might want for Christmas that we may have talked about once in passing or perhaps never even mentioned to someone that somehow ends up wrapped up under the tree with our name on it.
Anyway, my point is that kids these days grow up so fast. They find out things a lot quicker than we did when we were kids and in this case it’s got nothing to do with politics it’s just the way the world is as a whole.
When I was a kid my parents never let on as far as the truth behind Santa Claus they never out and out told me what the deal really was. They let me find out about that on my own because and I am grateful because when you get hit by how the world really is sometimes when you are a kid it hits you like a ton of bricks.
When the time comes it should be the responsibility of the parent to show a kid how to deal with that hit but also avoid the blow as much as possible.
There are so many things that society says that parents should be doing for their kids and that when the time comes it should be the parents that tell kids the truth about certain things and nobody else.
From Fox News:
What’s worse than a lump of coal in your Christmas stocking? Perhaps a place in the unemployment line.
A substitute teacher who recently told first-graders that Santa Claus is not real is no longer working for a New Jersey school district, the superintendent said Tuesday.
Montville Township Public Schools Superintendent Rene Rovtar confirmed in a statement to Fox News that the substitute, who has not been identified, is no longer with the K-12 district.
Rovtar previously told News 12 New Jersey that “childhood wonder associated with holidays and traditions” is special to her.
The superintendent, calling the incident the Cedar Hill School the “Santa matter,” said no additional comment would be made on the topic due to “the fact that this is a personnel matter.”
Cedar Hill School Principal Michael Raj had previously sent a letter to parents following Thursday’s incident at the school, noting the “childhood innocence of the holiday season.”
Raj said that as a parent himself, he understands the “sensitive nature” of the topic.
