Parents are crueler than dinosaurs.

It's a reasonable reaction, from the perspective of the parents. To a parent, the likelihood that the child is--if not lying per se--being "fanciful" is greater than that the child actually saw a shark. No matter how reliable the child usually is, I imagine this rule would hold true.

That doesn't make it any easier on the child, though, and I try to make a point of believing almost anything a child says until it is proved completely untrue, just so as not to put them in that frustrating position. After all, what's the harm in being surprised now and then?

That's not something you can really blame them for, though. Parents are human, too. I think that realization is the real source of the pain in these sorts of stories.
