What do you do if your child gets a gift you don't want them to have?? Such as make up for a young girl...
Also how do you feel about invitations just to fill a certain number of slots? ie We have to have 15 kids for this party and I need one more...
Last how about parties for kids you don't know or only slightly know? Such as the coworker you pass in the hallway but never really speak to...
I kind of feel some of these are just seeking more presents for their kids.
1) I would explain to my child AFTER the party that we (dad and I) dont feel that now is the time for that gift and that we will put it away until they are older. They STILL have to write a thank you. And with out the child knowing i would donate it.
2) I have never heard of "filling slots" what kind of birthday requires a certain number of guests??? I know that certain places make you pay the same up to a certain number... but I dont see that as 'requiring' you to invite guests. I guess I dont get this question.
3) I dont go. If my child gets an invite we ONLY go if my child likes the kid or plays with the kid... we dont go just to go. And I personally dont like the 'whole class' invites. It is impersonal and seems like a brag or a cop out.. I think it ridiculous.
