Dax Shepard believes in honest parenting.
The former “Parenthood” actor recently told Us Weekly why he broke the news of Santa Claus’ existence, or lack thereof, to his 5-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Lincoln.
“Our 5-year-old started asking questions like, ‘Well, this doesn’t make sense, and that doesn’t make sense,’” regarding the Jolly fat man with a beard. “I’m like, ‘You know what? This is just a fun thing we pretend while it’s Christmas.’ “
“I have a fundamental rule that I will never lie to them,” Shepard told the publication. “Which is challenging at times.”
Shepard and his wife Kristen Bell are parents to daughters Lincoln and Delta, the latter of whom is 3-years-old.
