forbidden gifts

The holidays can be tough on the kids when suddenly the in-laws become outlaws and are forbidden to visit on Christmas Day and in some extreme situations, they are forbidden to give gifts to the kids. The new man in the house, whether stepfather or boyfriend rearranges the holiday traditions to suit himself. Maybe he lets the kids have gifts but only under certain conditions. For example, he may set a price limit, because he doesn't want the kids spoiled or more important he doesn't want to look cheap because he can't or won't indulge them?

Sadly when the extended family is denied access, often that means no gifts may be given even during Christmas. Don't give up, though, instead donate to a charity for kids and have them send the thank you to the kids or family who has become isolated.
