My daughter is 7 and still believes in Father Christmas and The Tooth Fairy which I think is lovely. The other day her two friends (aged 6 and 8) were in her bedroom playing and the 8 year old started to tell my daughter and her 6 year old friend how silly they were for still believing as "it's your mum and dad that buy your presents and put the tooth fairy money under your pillow". My daughter argued for her beliefs and the 6 year old just looked crushed. Thank goodness I had heard and defused the situation a little but I am still waiting for the big question from my daughter.....
Am I wrong to want my daughter and her friend to hold onto to this magical part of their childhood for a little longer or is it time that she knew?
