If your child is invited to a birthday party, do you and your child attend?

If not, why not?

I ask because my DD, has 11 kids in her class and over 4 months and 3 parties, it is always the same 5 kids and parents showing up.

 I really prefer not to stay at a kid party myself. If the parent allows drop off I drop off, if they request I stay, I stay.

Yes, when DS was in preschool the parents stayed at the party. No drop offs were allowed usually.

Yes, we go. I can't tell you how many birthday parties we went to last year. The only reason we wouldn't attend is if we had prior plans.

I haven't been put into that situation yet. I probably wouldn't take her, but if I did, I suppose I'd stay.

When my kids were in preschool, I would attend the birthday parties with them.  I just felt they were too young to attend without me.

Yes, I just went to one today with my 3 year old. Because he is too young to be left with strangers.

Heck no! How else is my daughter going to learn independence and how to behave without me if I don't start with small blocks of time like a 2 hour party?
If I don't feel like I know the parents well enough I would just turn down the invite.
