The Tooth Fairy (or Easter Bunny, or Santa Claus . . .): a fun and harmless fiction, or a pointless justification for lying to children?
I’ve never been lied to about the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus for that matter by my parents when I was young. I think it’s pointless justification for lying to children. The keyword here is lying and if parents don’t like their children lying to them as they grow older (and get into trouble) then they shouldn’t be lying bastards to their children about Santa and the Tooth Fairy and whatever other fantastical monsters they lie about.
