84. How do I manage birthday parties?
families prefer to give multiple small birthday parties on different days
especially as multiples get older. Some parents find having just one party
that is appropriate for both boys and girls (bowling, circus, carnival,
beach luau, etc) more relaxing. The cost of these parties can also be
overwhelming, so many parents compromise by only having parties every
other year. Have a talk with the family and explain the pros and cons
of the different parties, but remember, parties are supposed to be fun.
Viewpoints on this and many other parenting questions are available in the MOST Large Family Household Forum.
