I always buy my nephews Christmas presents but my brother doesn’t do the same for my kids in return. What should I do?
‘If you’re close to your brother, you can be honest.
Say something like, “Is there something Freddie wants or are we not bothering this year?” then at least you’ll know where you stand,’ says Jo. ‘If you’d like to buy presents for his children, tell him so before Christmas, and hopefully he’ll then get the hint to buy them back. Don’t be confrontational. Christmas tends to bring out the emotion in all of us and situations can easily get blown out of proportion.’
