Psychology talked about the different learning stages in kids. According to a handout, seven to eleven year olds have a concrete operational system, where they begin to think logically. The teacherís example was Santa Claus. Most of the psyc students said they were seven to eleven when they began doubting. I was eleven. I thought there was something wrong with me for doubting his existence. Now I feel relieved knowing it was natural. What is the point of Santa anyway? Why invent him for kids if they are just going to get upset questioning his existence? Joy becomes misery.
