My son's Half siblings & gifts

by Ivette
(Sonoma CA)

My son's father has 3 kids with 3 different Mothers. He is a great father, but just not the type of man that wants to settle down. Anyhow, we have a good relationship and I see his kids at least 2-3 times per month. My dilemma is if I should be buying my son's half siblings Christmas gifts? In my mind the kids have no fault of our mistakes... I don't have any intentions of getting back with my ex (my son's father) but I am afraid that he might view my generosity/kindness as a weakness? So should I buy his other kids gifts or not?

How kind and generous of you. Yes, go ahead and let the kids know you care. If you are concerned about how this will appear to their father, just tell him how you feel. No sense in the kids suffering because their Dad is a bit of a player!
