* AdultFear: In-universe example from the first movie. Scott and Charlie disappear with no trace around Thanksgiving to work at the North Pole with no warning to Laura or Neil but also no malice or intent to hurt them. But his mother spends an entire month worrying about him and only hears from him on the phone and while he does sound happy, the police cannot get a trace on his location and have no leads to his whereabouts.

** Scott is also concerned about Charlie's behavior after they go to the North Pole. Everybody believes that Charlie is becoming an escapist due to the time he spends with Scott. To prevent losing custody over his son, Scott tries to find a way to keep Charlie quiet about him being Santa.
