BRONX NEWS: Bronx-born author helps parents talk to kids about Santa


Yes, mommy. There is a Santa Claus.


A Bronx-born teacher wants to help parents with those pesky questions about St. Nick that arise as kids get a little older.


Sonia Leal’s new tome “How to Talk to Your Child About Santa Claus” is part self-help book — and part memoir.


The 50-year-old Spanish teacher, who grew up near the Grand Concourse in the 1970s, delves into the historical and folkloric traditions surrounding Father Christmas as well as her Hispanic heritage and her own childhood discovery of the truth behind Kris Kringle.


“My book is written because there was a real person,” Leal said. “It’s not about debunking the myth. It’s about sharing the tradition and the truth.”


The first time author was inspired to tell her tale after talking to her own daughter, who was nine at the time, about St. Nick.


“It shouldn’t be taboo,” Leal said. “It should be a beautiful thing — when the child is the right age.”


Leal said the talk with her daughter made her think back to her own childhood growing up in the Bronx.


“As an adult I remembered how wonderful it was that my parents did what they could with what they had,” Leal said, adding that parts of the book focus on her own understanding of Santa.


The Fordham University grad, who now lives in New Jersey, will return to her hometown in December to speak with students at her old high school Mount St. Ursula about writing and growing up in the Bronx.


Dr. Lawrence Balter, NYU professor emeritus in applied psychology, said parents should have fun with the story of Santa — but should avoid abusing the centuries old story.


“Parents shouldn’t use Santa Claus, or the myth of Santa Claus, as a threat of any kind,” Balter said in reference to the jolly old soul’s naughty and nice lists. “It’s supposed to be a fun thing.”


The parenting expert said even if kids question the veracity of the Claus conspiracy to let them believe as long as possible.


“You need to leave it to the kid,” Balter said. “It’s just a little story that kids enjoy. It’s pleasant and you can have a good time with it.”


Leal’s book, while outlining how parents can tackle the big question of “Is Santa real?,”also encourages moms and dads to use the moment as an opportunity to bond and to discuss larger concepts such as honesty, generosity, and tradition.


For the mother of two, the Santa conversation went so well that it made it easier to discuss other tough subjects.


“Creating that open line of communication made it easier to talk about things down the line,” Leal said. “That’s the magic of Santa.”

Police Inviting Sneaker Meetups to Take Place at Police Stations



Recently, The Shoe Game ran a great story about a New York police chief inviting sneaker meetups to take place in the lobby of their police station. This invitation for a safer meetup location followed news of a robbery related to a sneaker meetup, with a teen involved now facing 25 years behind bars for his actions.

“If you think you’re going to do something like that, come in do it in the lobby at the police department,” Colonie, NY police chief Steve Heider told CBS 6 Albany. “The person that has an illegitimate reason behind it probably won’t show up.”

Following the news, Ray P from TSG followed up with his local Las Vegas Police Department to see if the same offer was extended, which they confirmed it was. We’re happy to say that after talking to representatives from the Austin, TX Police Department that the invitation holds true here, too.

With all the holiday releases scheduled over the next month and plenty of people looking to pick up a pair or sell off some stock, it’s good to keep in mind that you can do sneaker meetups at an ultra-safe place like the lobby of a police station. It’s important that whenever you meetup to do a transaction with a stranger that the place is very public and that you go with a friend. Generally speaking, if the other party won’t meet at a public location, tries to change the location last minute, or deletes their profile, odds are it’s shady business and not worth the risk. Big ups to the police stations that are looking out for the people and sneaker community this way. Safe and smart shopping, buying, selling and trading to all this holiday season.
