Although the concept of Santa may be fun for kids, In the long term, It is not good for childre's development.

Members of the house, Before i continue, I would like to state that Santa is a concept that originated from a monk named St. Nicholas, In 280 A. D.

Now, On with my case.
Santa is a fictional character that provides someone for kids to look up to possibly as a role model to help others or to look to for gifts. This fictional character can help children spread their imagination which in one aspect, May be good, But if you think about it, Isin't. Studies have shown that kids who believe in Santa, Have poorer social skills. Kids who believe in Santa will also have no concept of the value of money. They will just think that items come from Santa and that their parents play no role in their childhood. This will also reduce the children's respect for their parents. Respect is a core value that is very important in life. You may think that letting your child believe in Santa is harmless until you weigh out the Pros and the Cons.

Members of the house,
With everything that I have said and more to come, Vote for side opposition.
