My girlfriend, Karri, told me about this website. It's a good reference for not letting your kids birthday party get out of control! The website is birthdayswithoutpressure.com. Here's just a snipet:
If you think children’s birthday parties are getting out of control, you’ve come to the right place. We want to raise awareness of this problem and offer alternatives for parents and kids who want birthdays without pressure. We are a small group of parents and professionals in St. Paul, Minnesota with a vision to launch a local and national conversation about:
What is out of control about birthday parties?
Why they have gotten out of control?
What are the consequences for kids and parents?
What can parents do about it?
We also have questions you can ask your child to find out what he or she really likes, and does not like, about birthday parties. Come and browse our website, share your stories take the quizzes, and spread the word that birthday parties can be fun and enjoyed without pressure.
Also, enjoy the cute pic of my little Owen when he turned 1!! Love the party hat! It barely fit his head! :-0
