    What is the story of Toof Fairy?

    I think children need in some extence to obey and respect parents. And parents not use wrong learned patterns of behaving if they does not work.

    With lying you teach also to children that lying is normal and accepted in order to use your power not always in right way. Parents have a lot of responsibility to teach their children.

    The tooth fairy (or toof ) comes to children`s bedrooms when their milk teeth start to come out, she puts money under the pillow in exchange for the tooth. I believed in the tooth fairy and remember finding money under my pillow.

    I remember those days!
    I remember being all excited that the tooth fairy was going to come, and I also remember eventually realizing it was really Mom, but I was no dummy, I kept my mouth shut and kept getting the 25 cents as along as I could

    back then, that was 2 new comics and a handful of penny candy

    An example;
    My wife an I started with tooth fairy stuff with the kids, I realized what we doing, Christmas too.
    So I broke the news to the kids, slowly. All still young.
    First response was can we still be believe in the tooth fairy? I said yes.
    A couple of toofers later they forgot about it, and they still get their reward for losing the tooth. Win win.
    Same with Christmas except Christmas has always been the secular holiday with Santa Claus. They know where the presents come from.
