“Dear Tooth Fairy” is how the letter from a little nine-year-old girl named Lexi starts. The sarcasm is evident from the start since the Tooth Fairy’s name is in quotes, and she proceeds to rip into her parents for treating her like a little girl.

Now if you want to see something a little on the disturbing side then you should check out these odd children’s books that are raising awareness on certain issues.
Modern society seems to think that kids need to believe in the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and more in order for the various holidays scattered throughout the year to hold some sort of meaning. This theme has been woven into many a Hollywood movie but apparently little Lexi is not having it.
Redditor willsanderson, who posted a photo of the note on Reddit, says he found the Dear Tooth Fairy letter on his daughter’s pillow. It reads.
“Dear ‘Tooth Fairy,’ I don’t believe in the tooth fairy any more. I know it’s you who gets the money and puts it under my pillow, Mom and Dad. I’m sorry if this is hard for you, but I’m nine now.”
“P.S. I don’t believe in Santa Claus either.”
“P.S. Daddy, I knew it was you last Easter, hiding my Easter eggs.”
The responses to the letter on Reddit were interesting, to say the least. Some noted the economical unfairness of how some children will receive whole dollars for their teeth while others only get quarters. Others told stories of how their own kids realized Santa Claus was a “well-meaning lie.”
“My son thought Santa was real until he was 12. I actually told him because he was in middle school and I wanted to save him from embarrassment. His reaction was that he was mad at me for lying to him all his life. My daughter chimes in ‘I’ve known since I was 5.’”
Do you think little children should be told to believe in the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, and the Easter Bunny?
