Okay so I heard this on the radio this morning. Apperently there is a new trend when sending invitations for a childs party or playdates. Waivers are sent along with the invitations. You don't sign the waiver your child cannot attend. This shocked and appalled me. I mean I get it, the hosts are covering their asses if something happens with your child at their home. It's still on the extreme side as far as I see it. It's such a slap in the face. So I am curious what would you ladies do if you ever recieved one?

No big deal. But a tad bit odd.

So if they let the other kids beat up your kid, they'd be safe from getting sued, etc. I don't fucking think so.

I wouldn't sign it, but I also attend the parties with my kids.

I wouldn't sign it. Makes me wonder what in the world is going to be happening in the party that they find the need for a waiver.

I would wonder what goes on there that a waiver is needed.  This really goes beyond covering one's ass.

As sue happy as people can be these days, I kinda understand. If you have a bounce house at the party and a kid gets hurt, you could be sued. Or if they play on your trampoline, or in your pool. I can understand why people would want to protect themselves.

It would depend on where the party is. Most of the time if the party is being held at a place like Monkey Joes then I would sign. But if it's at someone's house I would not. I plan to be there so I see no need in it.
