I'm in a furious rage at my son's teacher. She told the entire class Santa Claus is not real. Yes, it's a 6th grade class, but it's still elementary school. I'm really mad. Now my son is upset and wonders why the teacher would say such a thing.

Your thoughts?

it really isn’t her place, but then again she’s not done anything i would get upset about. you can tell your son, “well, Santa only comes if you believe in him!” and leave it at that. :)

Good reason to homeschool, I guess. Then you can tell them yourself.

Hey, this happened to my son when he was in 2nd grade. I was a big deal then, as the info spread to all the other 2nd grade classes.

6th grade....nah, they already know. No biggie.

You might think about breaking the news about the Tooth Fairy at this time, too. I’m just sayin’.

Seems kind of weird to me that a 6th grader would still believe in Santa Claus.

Um...isn’t the point of getting an education to learn the truth, not lies?

Honestly, if this is the worst thing a teacher in public school ever does, count yourself lucky.

If he didn't already know that Santa is not real, then I'm sure he had strong suspicion of it.

I mean don't you think 11 or 12 is pretty old for a kid to still believe in Santa?

You should be ticked. While a 6th grade class probably has very few kids that believe in Santa, your the parent not the teacher.

That said, the subject must have come up for some reason, so obviously it wasn’t a settled issue for all of the kids.

We never told our children there WAS a Santa - we ALWAYS said he was pretend. Made the aunts and uncles mad.

I don’t know. They still teach anthropogenic global warming, and take great liberties with history.

If your kid still believes in Santa in 6th grade he has more problems than the teacher.

What about Santa Claus? You trying to insinuate that Santa’s not real?

I’d be furious also. Even though 6th grade is old enough to know the reality of Santa, he’s part of the spirit of the season and what it stands for that’s important. As far as I’m concerned she destroyed all that no matter what the age of the students were.

It does seem a little odd, doesn’t it.

“If your kid still believes in Santa in 6th grade he has more problems than the teacher.”

You might have been responding to joesbucks. I don't see an issue here. At that age if the peer information doesn't sway them into disbelief the teacher's comments would be irrelevant.

He might as well not exist!

He stopped coming to leave gifts for me when I left my folks home and moved out on my own. And I’ve been REALLY GOOD the last 22 years. If I ever lay eyes on him, I’ll kill him. I swear!! I mean, how rude can a Santa be? I even left him many forwarding address changes.

I swear! I’ll run him over with my semi!!!!
