Sibling Rivalry: The Christmas Gift Showdown!

Our teen hero finds himself in the middle of a yuletide debacle when his stepmom, Joy, discovers the stark difference in the gifts he's bought for his blood siblings compared to his step-siblings. Joy is not feeling very joyful about this apparent favoritism and demands the teen treat all the kids equally. But our protagonist stands his ground, asserting that his step-siblings simply don't hold the same place in his heart as his biological bro and sis. As tensions rise higher than a Christmas tree, Dad tries to play peacemaker by buying extra gifts on the teen's behalf. But Joy's not having it, calling the teen a little a**hole for his gift-giving grudge. Let's see what the internet has to say about this festive family feud!

Stepmom stands up for herself and sets boundaries with dad 💪
