Seeing Santa means a lot more than heading to the mall to sit on his lap! These days, tech-savvy tots have St. Nick at their fingertips.

Check out these fun ways your family can keep the magic of Santa alive.
What do you think? Will you be leaving Santa some yummy or healthy treats this Christmas?
Last night, I couldn't wait to tune into what likely will be ABC's new hit, In the Motherhood. But, before I could settle into my seat, Santa was outed. Moments into the premiere, Emily told her two young children — Esther and Bill — that St. Nick was a charade. It was a funny story line and one many mothers can relate to, but my 5-year-old daughter was in the hall and overheard. Luckily she assumed the character on television was just tricking her children, but lots of youngsters, particularly those ages 6, 7, 8 and 9, who still believe in Santa are still awake at that hour. Do you think 8 p.m. is appropriate time to announce the truth over the boob tube?

We all know the story about the kid who got a lump of coal for Christmas. But, the other day I was out shopping and overheard a mom telling her son that if he didn't get back in the stroller she'd call Santa. The lil guy was sick of shopping and just wanted to go home. Do you use this tactic?
