My daughter will be 3 in August most people are family so the adults will be staying with there children. But there are some children coming that are my daughters friends but the adults called and asked if they could stay for the party which I said yes to of course but 1 mom who lives down the street from me told me that she'd drop her son off at 530 and be here at 830 to pick him up (the party is from 6-8). I told her that she needs to stay here b/c theres no way that I can watch her child and throw a party for my daughter. (does that sound bad?) She says she drops off her son for all of his friends parties btw he's almost 4. What age will you start dropping your kids off at there friends birthday party?

My daughter was 6 when I left her alone at a party. I only do it for parties that are at people's homes. I stay for ones at public places.

I have to say it depends on the age of my child and how well I know the people hosting it.

I have a 12 year old, if I didn't know the people, I would stick close.  If I knew the people, probably age 5.

Yea, that child will be in to everything.  I think I was 10 or 11 when I got to go to a pool party at a friends house alone.

Our one and only DS is only a year but I think I will let him go to parties at good friends' houses alone when he's 6 or 7 (voted for 7) but if it's a classmate that we don't know well or at a public place then we will go until he's probably in high school LOL

Yes we CAN and Yes we DID!!!!

I put other because it would all depend on the type of party and who was having it and who would be there.  If it was a party at my sister's house and she said I could drop the kids off, then I would leave a 1 or  2 year old with her.  If it was a sleep over for the little kids in a class, I could see letting a 5 or 6 year old stay if I knew the parents.  It all depends on the kind of party too.  When we had Birthday parties for kids growing up the parent's weren't expected to stay, although some did.  mom always made sure she asked friends or her sisters to help and watch the kids (or us older kids).
