I don't understand that. Why hide something like that from a child? It's something that they're eventually going to learn, so why not tell them the truth? Only when you hide it does it become an improper topic. Same deal with showing breasts on TV. Breasts are only taboo because people have MADE them taboo.Oh, great, someone brought in Pedobear...
Did you ever, as a kid, ask your parents "where do babies come from?" You didn't get a real answer. I wonder why?
Because they(parents) don't want them(children) to know!
I believe the same thing about Santa Clause. Why even lie to a child? Just tell them you bought the gifts and that Santa isn't real. Because it makes it more fun for the child? It's better to lie and give them a little fun, yet make them devastated when they find out it's not true, than to just tell them the truth from the beginning?
Also, I don't get the baby talk crap people do with babies. Just talk to them normally, they don't know you're talking in a cute way, so it's not like they enjoy it more.
