I do agree that kids know the doll they use to play is not a real woman (the same with kids that know that the max steel in their hand is not a real man), they use their imagination to create scenarios where they entertain themselves, but is precisely the illusion of “it is real” what makes that imagination grow. Kids needs to believe in Santa Claus, The Three Magic Kings, the fairy tooth, the easter rabbit and even in God, and we all need imagination if we want to create things. We don’t want depressed or obsessed kids. We want them happy.
I do want my kids to question what/why things happened, I do want my kids to be curious but to me is more important let them believe what they want, to have fantasies, they will grow and then they will have time to make themselves the questions.
