Question When to tell kids that Easterbunny does not exist?

Hey y'all

I would like to gather some opinions!

At what age do you think is it appropriate to tell your kid that the Easter bunny does not exist?

I have found that as they get older they figure it out for themselves.

This is exactly how I feel about it as well.

Hubby on the other hand is kinda concerned that our son will be teased by the other kids at school for believing in the Easter bunny (we had the problem with Santa last year).

My boys are completely confused by this concept and we really don't worry too much about it. I still give them baskets....we can't hide them though.

I think letting them figure it out on their own is fine.

They start hearing rumors at school (santa, easter bunny, tooth fairy) and once they realize one doesnt exist, they pretty much "get it" about the rest. When my oldest (now26) came to me before X-mas one year (i think he was 9?) and said "Mom, tell me the truth, is Santa real?" I told him that Santa wasnt a real person, but he represented a spirit of magic and giving, and now that he was old enough, he was part of that spirit and it was up to him to keep the magic alive. well it worked, he didnt tell his little brother!,........ I guess a version of this would work for the bunny

Yes I agree the kids will figure it out on their own. Especially once they are in school.

Thank you all so much for the response !!!

We just colored eggs and talked a lot about the Easter bunny. This glow in their eyes talking about it is just priceless.

My oldest is 10 and still fully believes in Santa and will defend him to his peers. He did say though he just doesn't buy the tooth fairy and the Easter Bunny. Said they are too out there and besides, where was the rabbit poo? LOL

My DD (7) figured it all out before Christmas this year. She asked me and I told her the truth. She didn't tell a soul and didn't want her grandparents to know that she knew the truth, she just played along. I, on the other hand, cried and cried that she didn't believe and my girl was growing up. Luckily we still have the 7 month old.

I never told mine, just waited for that magical moment in their lives when they came to me the week before and said "can we just have money this year instead of baskets"?...

I would wait until they started asking questions. There will be plenty of time in their lives to live knowing the Easter Bunny, etc., aren't real, why steal any of their precious "kid time"?

I think my parents told me about that when I was very young. I don't remember ever thinking that the Easter bunny brought me candy. I know that with Santa, my parents told me and my sister that he didn't exist but we weren't allowed to tell any of our friends that.
