The Tooth Fairy (or Easter Bunny, or Santa Claus . . .) : a fun and harmless fiction, or a pointless justification for lying to children?
If you think it’s a pointless lie, you’re an asshole.
Children are born with wild imaginations, sometimes they need help expanding their creativity. I don’t know how many children you know, but when I found out these things weren’t real, I wasn’t upset. It was a game.
“I KNEW IT!”
Little did I know, my parents had broadened my imagination.
Children need something to believe in. I don’t mean God, I mean something fun and whimsical. Children are untainted and so… pure. They deal with the evils of the world too and at a young age, we’re not ready to face it yet. We need something more.
