Kristen Bell Reveals How She Told Her Daughter the Truth About Santa | 22 Words

Kristen Bell is the proud mom of two daughters, Lincoln, 6 and Delta, 4.

The Good Place actress opened up this week about her family's Christmas traditions and how she told her oldest daughter, Lincoln, the truth about the man in red.

Frankly, if any parents out there don't quite know how to have this conversation, I'd recommend you take a page out of Bell's book.

Kristen Bell sure seems to have this parenting gig down.

Kristen Bell is the best person.

If there's anyone who you might want to take parenting advice from I'd say Kristen Bell was a safe bet.

Co-parenting goals.

Kristen Bell co-parents her two kids with her husband, actor and podcast host, Dax Shepard.

These two absolutely adore their kids.

Despite their busy schedules, it's clear that Kristen and Dax put their kids first.

Christmas is a special time for the Shepard-Bell household.

Speaking to ET in 2016 about what the holidays mean to her, Bell said: "Just before Halloween, [I] start thinking about Christmas. It just makes you feel so good. My family was always really into Christmas and my husband and I decorate like crazy."

The whole family went as Christmas for Halloween this year.

In an interesting group costume choice, Kristen, Dax and the kids decided to celebrate Halloween by dressing up in Christmas attire. These guys must really like the festive season.

Even the dog got dressed up!

The family dressed their pooch, Frank, up as a snowman... a very cute snowman at that.

Kristen doesn't believe Christmas should be stressful.

Although many people feel their stress levels rise over the holiday season, Bell believes trying to remain calm is important. Speaking to Woman's Day this month, Bell insisted that "It’s tempting to think that everything has to be perfect. But if we decide at 2 p.m. on Christmas Eve to order takeout instead of cook, I will have a smile on my face."

Being a parent is no easy job.

Kristen Bell is very open about her trials and tribulations she has experienced as a parent.

Telling the truth about Santa is a tough one.

All parents know that having this difficult conversation with your kids can be a tricky one.

It's a difficult conversation for kids too.

It seems as though some of us never got over finding out the truth about Santa Claus.

Parents never like being the bad guy...

And if revealing the truth about Santa is going to crush your kids, naturally, you'd rather not burst their bubble.

For some, Christmas is Santa Claus.

It's this kind of Santa focussed Christmas perspective that Kristen Bell didn't want her kids to develop.

Kristen Bell doesn't consider herself the perfect parent...

But by heck does she try her best. Bell gave her Santa talk a lot of thought.

Instead, Bell explained that Santa is "an imaginary game we play because it’s really, really fun." This gives her the opportunity to join in with the game too. We love this idea, Kristen.

It's all just fun and games!

I mean, Kristen Bell makes it all seem so easy. I guess that's the sign of a good parent. Continue scrolling to read about how Bell and her husband Dax were so busy they forgot it was their wedding anniversary. Those guys!
