Are We Lying to Our Child?
Christmas is finally over and I was putting the decorations away and it got me to thinking about Santa Claus, the Elf on the Shelf and other fictitious characters and was wondering are we lying to our child when we tell them stories about those characters. And it also reminded me that I hate the elf on the shelf!
I think the elf on the shelf is a great concept and it works, it’s just a pain in the ass trying to find different spots to hide the thing every night for the month of December. It’s not easy to do when you limit yourself to the downstairs only and trying to find easy to find places to find it. By day number 10 or so, I start to struggle in finding spots. By day number 23, Bubbles (that’s the name of my sons elf), has been hidden in every place imaginable downstairs!
Take a listen to this episode and let me know if we are lying to our child about the Elf on the Shelf, Santa Claus and any other fictitious characters or is it just a ‘white lie’.
Until next time, take care
