Most kids still believe in the tooth fairy at 6 and 7 though dont they? So santa isnt much different? My son hasnt even lost a tooth yet at 6.5. I'd be devastated if he stopped believing before he lost his first one...

Maybe they were told by older siblings?

I was 12 a few months before starting high school, i could just imagine the embarrassment if i had of still believed then. I actually think it's cruel to lead kids on for that long. They are bound to be bullied and teased over it.

I worked it out for myself at a very young age (about 6 years old). My mum and Santa having the same handwriting and wrapping paper was a dead giveaway !
I did however keep my suspicions to myself because I enjoyed the whole Santa concept and knew other children were believers.
My primary school bestie only found out in grade 6 and she was devastated. Her parents did make Santa very believable for their children though.

I don't see it as embarrassing, but most of the kids I know who are 9 still believe.
There's so much reality in out kids faces these days. I'm happy for mine to believe in magic for as long as possible.

DD1 is 13 next month and I think she might suspect or even outright know the truth but she hasn't said anything. She definitely still believed last Christmas at 12.
The younger kids (10, 8, 5 and 2) all still believe.

My DS1 is 12 next week and has figured it out sometime throughout the year. Last year he was suspicious and made a few comments but this year he seems certain. I actually somewhat confirmed it to him the other day because she was making comments to my younger 2 kids, so I had to tell him to keep quiet and to continue going along with it for their sake.
Oh and my 9yo and 7yo definitely still believe!

DS who is 7 still believes. He knows he gets presents from myself and others and santa will bring the big present christmas eve. He even asked me if i could put the presents i bought under the tree when i have wrapped them like i have done for the previous 2yrs.
