If your first grade (6yr) child was invited to a birthday party at someones house would you let them go alone? My son has been invited to a few parties since starting school last year but have all been at public places he just received an invitation to a party yesterday for a party this saturday(?) at a classmates house. I am torn on what I should do before I would always go and stay at the party/facility but this being at a home of a child I don't know I am not sure what I should do? I am really not okay with him going to a home of a stranger alone but also feel weird staying so I am thinking of him declining the offer but feel bad. What would you do let him go but you stay or go by himself or not go at all? If you had a party at your home would you just expect the parents to stay or am I being really weird and over protective?
