Preschool Party Pooper?: When your child has too many invites

November 15, 2018 0 Comments

Q: Our 4-year-old gets invited to so many birthday parties, we can’t keep up.  Sometimes it’s for a classmate she barely knows and she’s not even eager to attend.  When is it okay to say no, and in those cases, do we have to send a gift anyway?

A: It’s fine to say no whenever you wish, and it can certainly make sense when your daughter isn’t that interested in going.  You don’t need to send a gift-just be sure to RSVP “no” to the host.  I wouldn’t turn down too many parties however.   They do provide a great chance fo your daughter to get to know her classmates better.  And if “everyone” attends, after a while she may begin to feel out of the loop.
