Am I being unreasonable to be furious with my sons' guitar teacher who told them that Santa is not real?

Depends. If he's 16, then YABU...

Sorry. No - I'd be cross too. Am presuming DS is quite young.

If they're 5 - no
If they're 15 - yes

How old? Actually doesn't matter. He is wrong, Father Christmas is real. Wrong and rude.

OMG! YRNBU I'd be furious

Well if your son is 15 that seems fair enough

Can't possibly give an opinion on that post - All depends on DS's age context reason....

How old? Assuming due to anger they are primary age, although some 11/12yo believe, so even then I would not be impressed.

tripletrouble Thu 25-Nov-10 20:41:46

They are 10 and 8

ninah Thu 25-Nov-10 20:43:01

is he, then?

Hulababy Thu 25-Nov-10 20:43:39

Definitely wouldn't be happy. I think I would have to have a word with the teacher too.

How/why did it even come up?

hocuspontas Thu 25-Nov-10 20:45:03

Maybe he was referring to the ones that hang around town centres? The real one is busy making all the toys - these ones are his helpers.

whoknowswhatthefutureholds Thu 25-Nov-10 20:45:47

I would be fucked off. let him know and make him tell them he was joking.

Ingles2 Thu 25-Nov-10 20:46:13

YABU I'm afraid.
Do you really think your 10yr old had no clue at all???

LoopyLoops Thu 25-Nov-10 20:46:49

You don't honestly think they hadn't already worked that out?

Hulababy Thu 25-Nov-10 20:48:48

I know of plenty of 8y who wholeheartedly believe. Not that unusual. Sadly I think my 8y has figured it out properly this year - although seems happy to go along with it, think she is hedging her bets, just in case.

tripletrouble Thu 25-Nov-10 20:49:16

yes they probably had but she had no business talking to them about it!

PinkIceQueen Thu 25-Nov-10 20:51:25

My 10 year old believes in Father Christmas, he knows the one's in town centres etc are "helpers" the real one is busy in Lapland! YANBU OP.

pointydog Thu 25-Nov-10 21:04:51

How old's the guitar teacher?

Caboodle Thu 25-Nov-10 21:06:45

YANBU - I would be raging.

Nooooooo. Father Christmas not real ??? Noooooooo

PlanetEarth Thu 25-Nov-10 21:25:37

10 and 8? And they really still believed in Father Christmas? confused

LynetteScavo Thu 25-Nov-10 21:27:38


He should keep his beliefs about god and father Christmas to himself.

curlymama Thu 25-Nov-10 21:35:57

Father Christmas is real, and the teacher is wrong. Tell your dc's that she is probably jealous because she was a naughty child that never got any presents.
