Believe in Santa

Believe in Santa

Some parents are afraid to lie or deceive their children into believing in Santa Claus. Yet, when children learn the truth, they do not feel cheated. Often they themselves become complicit in their parents with younger people.

Stop believing in Santa Claus, it’s sort of a rite of passage at the age of reason, showing that they are no longer babies. But until then, that beautiful moments Santa can make them live!

Why are children so easily they believe in Santa Claus?

Before the age of 6 years, the child needs to see and touch to understand the world around them. For him, Santa Claus really exists as seen, he can feel and hear laughter. It even has a street address. The fact that the cookies are gone it leaves him on Christmas morning is further evidence of its existence. Based on these specific items, the child can easily get into the imaginary world and represent Santa Claus flying in the sky on Christmas Eve, and then enter his house and put gifts under the tree. It will not stop the fact that there is no fireplace in your home. If you made the remark to him, he will find an answer that suits him. Santa can pass through walls or windows.

2 to 3 years, it is possible that the child does not want to approach the Father Christmas, much less get on his knees taking pictures. This big man, dressed all in red and laughing loudly, makes him a bit scared. To 3 years, however, it will readily agree to touch him, talk to him; it might even send him a letter.
Santa to your rescue

Believe in Santa

If your child make a list of gifts they want to receive, no need to restrict it. By cons, once the list is complete, you can bring in Santa saying: “You know, it’s Santa Claus decides. It will perhaps not give you everything you want. Perhaps could you indicate 1 or 2 him you would most like to receive: it would help. Do you even lift.

Is not it wonderful to be able to call this nice gentleman rather than explain to your young child, for example, you do not have the money to buy everything? He will think you only have to go to the bank to have: banks are made for, right? They make such a remark will help avoid disappointment on Christmas. When it will stop believing in Santa Claus, he will have already learned to make choices. Furthermore, this list will help to provide gift ideas for loved ones who so request.

Believe in Santa

When your child begins to doubt

Some children stop believing in Santa Claus to 6 years, some 7 years or even later. These are the comments of the other kids at school who often germinate the first doubts. When your child asks you: “Is there for real Santa? “You can return the question to him:” What do you think, do you? “His answer will tell you about his desire to believe again.

The ideal in this “rite of passage” is to keep pace with your child, to strengthen him in his desire to believe or not.

Believe in Santa

Some parents are upset that their young children do not realize that gifts received come from them. It is only a matter of time they become aware and, by then, you will have furnished their childhood wonderful memories that will last throughout their lives happily.

Children are less flexible than adults and have our adaptability. So you should take some precautions.
Where to celebrate Christmas with a one year old child ?

It is preferable that Christmas celebrations are made in our house , so the child does not lose sight of their usual environment that gives security. With a year, infants and miss their environment. If the family tradition requires holding dinners at home of grandparents or uncles should look for a site that may be on the floor near the couch, where sit you with a bag of toys new or has not seen a while ago, so it is entertaining.

These chances are good family contact for the socialization of the child , but not be heavy with the “kissing” and “salutes” . It can be affectionate without continuous hugs; do not expect that such young children to behave like perfect citizens.

You have to clear the place of potential hazards . If you are in a strange house, must prevent our hosts. A child of a year is spent on patrol in search of novelties. Beware of objects and foods that may cause choking (sweets, small pieces of the crib …), with the tops of alcohol, with lit candles, with holly and mistletoe (are toxic), with some Christmas decorations (balls Glass). Should place the Christmas tree out of reach.

How to organize dinners, sleep …

The adult meals on these dates (lamb, shortbread, nougat) are not the most appropriate for such a small child. If you fancy trying something (that happen especially sweets) can give wisely and in small quantities. If we are to dine late, often giving them their dinner fit them before, so that their schedules are not out of adjustment and we can dine calmer afterwards.

If our child has to go to bed later than usual, a good nap can give rope to staying up . Some children tolerate badly altered their schedules and be awake at the wrong time may make them irritable and whiny. In that case you must arrange for, even away from home, in a quiet room acostarles surrounded by things that give them security (his teddy, pajamas, his blanket, song or story goodnight …) .

If then we we will take home to continue sleeping, it may be desirable to wake him. Some children are distressed and disoriented when they wake up in a different place to the one in which they slept.

Parents should be understanding
Alterations in sleep routines your child can affect their diurnal behavior and make you more irritable and moody. It’s okay to alter a few days, provided that the end of the holidays we recover the usual habits and schedules. But we have to be sympathetic to the p equeños mismatches that may occur in their behavior .
The next day a movidita night may allow the child to sleep for another hour , but not much more, because the next night will cost asleep at the usual time and a vicious cycle occurs.

The Magi and Santa Claus, seen by a baby (almost)
Parents, Santa Claus and the Magi seem very friendly and friends of children per or children a year may find it too impressive , with their beards and robes. If we want our child to take a picture with one of these characters, do not we launch him into his arms abruptly.

Let’s start with you can observe from a safe distance how do other children, and then slowly draw near .If you are afraid, mantengámosle a cautious distance. We can now take the child to witness the Three Kings ; for it will be an exceptional experience and enjoy a lot watching her face in astonishment.

Having a pet

Having a pet

Most young children want one day or another, live animal for their parents, usually a dog or cat. Here are things to keep in mind before letting Rex or Kiki enter life of your child.

Benefits for child development

Young baby is tempted to follow the dog or cat in his travels: gross motor skills is so stimulated. It is the same language, when he wants to call him and talk to him.

The cat or dog can also replace the absent friend and become the playmate of your child, from 2 years. The child will enjoy shopping with his dog or his cat to run to catch a rope.

Having a pet

The child must learn to respect his companion. Unlike a stuffed animal, a live animal does not always want to play when the child wants. If he pulls the tail of the cat, it will make him quickly understand he does not like.

Similarly, his dog clearly indicate that he does not want to be disturbed when he eats. In difficult or happy times, the animal may become the main confidant of the child, to whom he will deliver as much as his sorrows joys.

From 5 years, the presence of an animal can allow you to address topics such as death or birth with your child.

Find his pet died, her goldfish for example, may be the child’s first contact with death. He will appreciate you propose him to put his fish into the ground during a small ceremony. Throw it in the toilet, as a vulgar dirt, would minimize the child’s sensitivity and deny the importance of this friend. As for the birth, your child will ask you maybe if you cut his umbilical cord … with your teeth as he saw the dog family to do it for her puppies!

Having a pet


While it can bring a lot to your child, a live animal is a reality that you need to consider permanently : you must feed it, take it out, brush it, bring it to the vet, do keep in a prolonged absence. We can treat it as a toy that we put aside when it interests us most. It becomes a new member of the family. Buy a pet presupposes a long term commitment.

On the occasion of Easter, it is better to offer a chick or a chocolate bunny or teddy rather than living. Besides, chicks and rabbits are not animals that can be kept longer, and they cannot perform the same functions as a dog or a cat.

Your child will promise you probably take care of the 100% animal, to convince you. Although young children can participate in the preparation of animal meals and help her dress (and they are very sincere in their promises), they cannot completely take responsibility. Care for one another, respect its commitments, its responsibilities are learning that develop at school age. A 9 or 10 years will do that, not a 4 or 5 years. Better to know before buying a pet.

Having a pet

What animal choose?

If you decide to accede to the request of your child, it is important to choose the animal with care. Some dogs do not like to stay home alone all day while their owners work. Others need more exercise and more space. A cat requires less care than a dog, but lets his hair on everything he touches. A parakeet or goldfish can be a happy compromise.

By analyzing your lifestyle and organization of your days, you can more easily determine the right pet for you and who will be the happiest home. Remember to also consider the financial issue, not only for the initial cost of the animal, but also for its food and veterinary visits, whether for vaccines or other treatments.

Despite your desire to please your child better think carefully before buying a pet. Such a decision does not take on a whim or on a favorite.

So you will promote a sense of humor your baby

A child with a sense of humor is more able to make lasting friendships, loved by his peers and extend the good vibes to their adult relationships to more successfully manage frustrations , prevent conflicts and, ultimately, suffer less and enjoy more. In addition, the humor is related to intelligence, self-esteem , the creativity and problem solving.

At first splat !, bum !, cuckoo!

In early the laughter of babies is stimulated with physical games (tickling, etc.,) but soon, six or seven months when babies begin to understand a little the world around them, love to see what Known turned around, that is, begin to enjoy the essence of humor.

“When Ariel grabbed her bottle of water and drink simulated ear, almost fell of laughter,” says Paloma mum smaller than 18 months. “Seeing my reaction he also laughed and seemed very pleased with his new skill.”
When young “caught the joke” is a clear sign that they are developing important intellectual skills. Therefore it is good idea to hold their laughter. Antonio, father of two small, share a foolproof trick: “Clap wrongly or go beyond, take a doll and make clapping to the beat of a song and then are wrong. Once you know the trick, anticipation of clumsiness love. ”

Handsome as father, mother … funny how

The dads and moms who laugh easily and frequently with their children understand that humor is a tool unmatched when interacting with their children, and also very useful for discipline avoiding conflict .

Furthermore, the complicity that create laughter and good times is a kind of intimate language : “I usually call my daughter Martina like Robin Hood forest, pretending that my hand is a horn and making” you, you, tuuuu “. Now Martina, who already has one year and eight months when he wants me near her or want to ask me something, makes the same motion and sound, something that only we understand and makes us very much, “Celia said.

A sense of humor can be learned or inherited, like eye color?

Some children seem to be born with a sparkling and positive character and others however seem serious and grave from tots, however experts in child psychology claim that humor can be taught and learned. In this he is like a muscle to be worked regularly. And there is little point to a course of monologues for babies … the trick: to be the best model. This does not mean add to the already difficult task of parenting an obligation to be funny -8 am, prepare toast -faced clown, 10am, tell a joke monkeys, 3 pm “stumble” with a lamppost … -. It is much easier and liberating: allow fooling (yes, that asks us the body sometimes and we restrict our adult world).

Slowly (but with laughter)

The good thing about parenting is that we have years to develop our own sense of humor as our audience grows: we start with a simple material physical humor when they are babies , before going to sing “Let it rain, let it rain” with a ridiculous voice duck, continue with a scene in which we put a shoe on his head and a hat on foot.

The family home does not have to become a comedy but remember that parenting does not have to be severe, with much advice on when to start potty training , rules on the use of pacifiers … – and there is much room for play and fun .

“My daughter Violet is a great imitator,” says Estíbaliz, “we realized recently when he told his wrist ‘cuuchi-cuuchi, my chocolate on your tongue rag and looked at us expectantly. My husband and I could not believe that with such precision imitate her grandmother, gave us a laugh !, and her, of course. And her father is a great imitator imitates her sucking his pacifier and putting eyes (Violet part to see it), my typing quickly and intently on the computer … “.
