We told the kids that Santa only comes if you believe.... So the ones that didn't believe or were questioning it kept thier lips sealed, after all they were still kids and still wanted toys. This worked for a couple of years until they were a little older.

What I do with all my kids (step and bio) is tell them that santa only leaves present for children who say they believe in him. That stop my older ones from tell the little ones that santa wasn't real, as most kids will do anything to get more presents. If your step kids do tell you son then talk to your son about it and he may decide that the step kids are wrong.

I would have a sit down talk with the child that is trying to ruin it for others. thats uncalled for. he got to enjoy the hopes and dreams of santa why can the others?

I have the opposite problem. My 8 year old SD believes in Santa and we had her last Christmas. I don't really care to do the whole Santa thing but for her sake I did a little of it. Of course she didn't appreciate it saying 'How come Santa leaves more for me at my other house?' I just told her to be thankful Santa came to both her houses. Anyway, sorry I'm not much help.
