Reviews - What do customers think about Your Child and Santa: Help with the Christian Parent's Dilemma?

Great Book  Dec 17, 2007
I am a Christian father of two girls ages 5 and 3. I had never considered the ramifications of my explanation of Santa. My biggest fear was the avoidance of ultraconsumerism, not a real word, causing them to miss the point of Jesus being born. This book really opened my eyes and provided a sound approach for turning a potentially damaging situation into a positive learning experience.
 
Historical References Teach Children the Spirit of Christmas  Jan 25, 2007
I was given this book by a thoughtful friend who remembered a conversation we had regarding teaching children about Christmas and Santa Claus. My three year old was attending preschool, and her teachers were supplying Santa Claus crafts and reading books about reindeer and elves. Meanwhile, she was learning about Baby Jesus through her Sunday school classes and at home as we read to her about the story of Jesus' birth and pretended with a nativity set. It felt like a conflict of interests. I thought, "What does Santa Claus have to do with the birth of Christ?" I found myself becoming anti-Santa Claus. I was rebelling against the tradition with which I was raised in order to support what I felt was the true meaning of Christmas. I was close to ruining a wonderful experience for my child and her younger brother.

Mr. Glenn Norfleet, in his book, Your Child and Santa, has changed my view on our present day Christmas as he clarifies how Santa Claus came into being. He details the existence of Saint Nicholas, a young priest (and later bishop) and heir to a large fortune in Greece(present day Turkey) during the second and third centuries AD, and how he became a saint because of his extraordinary and anonymous generosity to the needy, sick, and suffering, especially children. His tradition of loving and caring for others is the basis for our present day Santa Claus. Mr. Norfleet explains how this process evolved and how we can teach our children to carry on this spirit of love without compromising our Christian principles. He recommends many detailed activites for different ages to help teach your child about this tradition of generosity and love.

This book is easy to follow; yet, it has a depth of understanding that is incredibly well-researched and beautifully written. If you struggle with how to incorporate Santa Claus into the season of the holy birth, then I highly recommend this book for you.
 
A good treatiste on "Your Child and Santa"  Jan 5, 2007
I think this is an excellent treatise on the dilemma that parents often
face on how to approach the existence of Santa Claus. Not only does
Glenn Norfleet give a very good history of the origin of Santa Claus, but
he gives a good argument for the inclusion of the Santa as part of Christmas. He does this in a manner that does not minimize honesty with the child, but rather helps the child understand the role of Santa in Christmas. As a bonus, there is a very good table which offers alternatives approaches to the dilemma depending on the child's level of maturity.
 
Santa and St. Nick a historical perspective  Nov 30, 2006
This is a wonderful, well researched book. It provides historical and anecdotal information about the nature of St. Nicholas and Santa Claus and offers suggestions on how to have Santa as part of a Christian Christmas. Very interesting and insightful.
