If your DS friend invited them to an amusement park (and paid for ticket).....and you gave the parents $80 for spending money- and DS had no change when they got home?
* it was for my DS bday and he invited the friend, who used all the $80 his mom sent even though we bought his breakfast and a few other things. I just felt bad that he didn't have anything left to take home

$80 at an amusement park can go quickly so why would a parent expect change? Why would they give the child that amount of money for spending if they didn't want all of it spent?

Idk. It's very easy to spend $80 at an amusement park.

No? If I have them $80, I would feel comfortable with him spending $80. I wouldn't have sent more than I would want him to spend. Are you thinking he didn't spent the money and they just kept it?

So that's lunch, a snack, a few games?

I wouldn't expect change or think anything of it.

No. I wouldn't give them any money that I didn't intend for them to spend.

No. If I gave him $80, that's what I would expect him to need. If I thought he would need less, I would give him less.

I have no expectations of change if I give someone spending money.
