1. My 7 year still believes
However I think this is her last year also.
One thing that I always disliked about the whole santa deal is good vs bad kids.I always stressed to her that mommy and daddy pays santa.So she would see there are some kids that get nothing not due to misbehavior but merely to poverty.Also so that she may feel compassion and be motivated toward kindness for those who have less.
There is also an insidious message in that.If you are poor you are bad.I think thats a terrible seed to plant in a childs mind.
