So, Claire informed me that Max told her today that Santa did not exist but not to tell me because he won't get a present since I am the one who does them.

Awww this REALLY sucks, Christol!!!! I know I would feel exactly the same way that you do. I'm not sure what you should do. I want to say not to give him the Santa present since that was pretty crappy of him to do. I don't think for a minute that he even thought about not getting HIS Santa present. Kwim? I think he was probably ticked at you and thought he'd "show you" or something like that. If it was me, I'd probably give in and still give him the Santa present and say something like Santa "gave him one more chance". Only because that's how I am. lol And it's Christmas. I made the rule this year that Santa doesn't bring presents to kids 16 or older. LOL Mostly because I got tired of trying to "pretend" with Regina's gifts. Good luck with your decision. If it was me, I don't think I would want to ruin everyone's Christmas but that's your call. Mostly for Claire. Maybe you should pull Max aside and I mean pull him by his ear (lol) and tell him that he's only getting his Santa present as to not ruin Claire's Christmas. Maybe don't even let him have his Santa present for awhile. I don't know. *sigh*

I think that is a good compromise. I also think it is important to follow through with it so that Max KNOWS you mean what you say. ALWAYS! A very important lesson for a teenager to be reminded of. {{{Christol}}}} I know it's not easy!

I think that sounds like a good compromise as well.
