My son loves Doctor Who. He decided
that the Doctor is the one who brings Christmas
presents, not Santa. So of course, last Christmas, we
decided to get him a sonic screwdriver "from" the
Doctor, along with a letter saying that this was his very
own sonic screwdriver, but he got a new one so he' s
giving this one to my son, He loved it.
A few weeks later, we went on vacation and the
screwdriver got misplaced somewhere. We knew he' d be
heartbroken, so we told him that the Doctor had
borrowed his screwdriver back for a few days (while t
ordered a new one from Amazon),
After it arrived, we waited until my son was in bed,
placed the screwdriver with a note ("Thanks for letting
me borrow id") outside his bedroom door, then played
the TARDIS sound on my computer speakers. He came
running out and found the screwdriver that "the Doctor"
had "brought back."
He talks about it all the time.

Let's analyze this A+ parenting.
>You tell your kid the Doctor is real, and gave him what he believes is the original sonic screwdriver, so he will feel happy, important, and loved at that moment in time.
>The kid tells everyone that he knows Doctor Who, and that he gave him his actual sonic screwdriver.
>The kid eventually realizes Doctor Who is not real, his parents, who he once trusted unconditionally, lied to him, and his friends who he faithfully ignored when they called him and his parents a liar, were right.

This kid now has trust issues with his parents, may listen to his peers more, and might think twice before feeling that important or loved ever again. Be an A+ parent, lie to your kids. (contrived nice people)

So every parent who tells their children santa or the toothfairy is real is a bad parent?

Because every kid has trust issues with their parents when they tell them that Santa/Tooth fairy/Easter bunny/ isn't real.

parents do that all the time with santa, the easter bunny, the tooth fairy and more. he'll grow up realize the truth and probably thank his parents for making his childhood more amazing. when you found out santa wasn't real did you have trust issues? think twice before feeling loved? i know i didn't.

"parents do it all the time with Santa, the easter bunny, the tooth fairy and more"
That's exactly what I'm talking about, and you may not remember clearly, but on top of what I mentioned it also confuses the child about what's real.

not really when i was a kid my brother told me that clifford the big red dog was based of a real dog, did that mean i started thinking telitubbies or mister men were real? no i just went about my business when i grew up i realized that it wasn't true and found it funny how i believed him also i like how you just took 1 line out of context and didn't mention what i said after it

You don't remember, but there was a time when you believed your parents would never lie to you, and then a time when you realized they would.

so? it's not like i've got trust issues because my parents told me a few white lies to keep me happy or well behaved i'm a happy healthy individual with a large group of friends and family your saying that if you had a kid you would tell him there is no santa and never see his giddiness on christmas eve as he waits for santa to bring him gifts. also what if he goes into school and tells his friends there is no santa and you effectively crush the happiness of dozens of kids?

Coming from a pedobear father -- ouch.
In fact, I often don't know if I can believe what my mother is telling me, and it is the cause of much woe. I have significant experience with a parent who readily lies to avoid hurting someone's feelings, or otherwise manipulating the outcome of events. Nobody can explain how these are any different.

Parents lie all the time and some lies are almost encouraged. I mean really the stork, santa claus, you probably believed in them at one point and did those lies give you trust issues.

I am specifically talking about all of these things. Yes they are encouraged, because people are stupid and would rather see a momentary smile on their child's face than to properly prepare them for life.

That's absolutely darling. Too bad the kid will start telling his friends at school and one of those assholes will get sick of it and tell him that Doctor Who isn't real. Just like they told me Santa Claus wasn't real.
