There is zero indication from the article that that was it either. In my opinion, the first one seems more likely, but to each his own.

This is probably the type of mom that complains when her son gets tackled too hard playing football. Or who got dodge ball banned from gym class. Or got "unhealthy snacks" removed from vending machines. Or didn't sign a parental consent sheet to allow her kid to go on a field trip. Or complained that recess was too long.

My point is no sense in rationalizing it. There are over-protective parents everywhere. This being one of those cases
Like others have stated earlier, there is a thing called "age appropriate". What he said wasn't age appropriate, and you can't criticize the mother for not telling her 3-year old son that Santa doesn't exist. If the kid was 8, I'd probably let it slide, but not at 3.
