My biological son is jealous because his step siblings get two-three Christmases. He does not see his dad, so he only gets one. I have heard him talking to his step siblings and it breaks my heart. I know it's not about the presents, but to kids it is. My husband and his ex alternate holidays. One year he has them on Christmas, the next he gets them Christmas Eve. The year when we have them Christmas Eve, we have Christmas morning twice once Christmas Eve for all of our kids and then on Christmas morning for my bio kids. It gets really expensive. The year we have them on Christmas is much easier. I thought this would've solved our problem, but it has not. My son still looks at it like they are getting more. He has also brought up the fact his step siblings get two birthday parties, one with their bio mom and one with us. If he saw his father that would really help, but I can't make miracles happen. I don't want my bio kids to feel bad. Please help!

Ouch. That's a tough one. Kids do enterpret Christmas as gift time whether we like it or not. And ya I can see why he feels jealous and hurt. Can u maybe buy him more gifts that cost less so he gets to open 3 instead of one?
