    What do you tell the children?

    What should you do when your ex-husband stops carrying on traditions such as the tooth fairy and santa after divorce?

    the truth is always the best way to go for me.but if they are too young to understand is very hard situation.

    The early the truth is understood may be in any means the easier the life becomes.We always go by our calculations in life but should not make one depend on any false thoughts and in any way or the other the truth should be revealed to them. I always prefer that the truth that is beneath in my heart should be shared with the person who might also be affected by the same by me before he knows it from someone else.

    Yes, I agree with the other hubbers. Reveal the truth to your kids is better than having carrying on the myths. Although it will be heartbreaking to see them cry....

      What I've done so far is tell them that the tooth fairy and Santa stop coming to houses of non believers and we carry on the tradition at my house. I want my 5 year old to get to experience the surprise, mystery and fantasy I grew up with.
