So I have soon-to-be 16 yr old ss. He is already acting like the young man I hoped he would become. My question is this: "How old is too old to invite family to a birthday party?" I want to invite family because it is a big birthday but I don't want to embarrass him either. I know he just wants to hang with friends (and I encourage that) but I also want to let him know that the family is proud of him. Am I overcompensating for the birthday I never had? Advice?
