Okay, so my DS3 (6 and in kindy) went to a b'day party at a karate place last weekend. There were quite a lot of boys (at least 15). Some of the parents had brought other children, but kept them in the party room with the adults (there were seats and a window to watch through, and food and drinks for us) and some parents dropped off. One dad brought the younger brother and encouraged him to join the party. Some of the other moms were mentioning that this couple does this at every party, brings the younger one and lets him join even though he was not invited. I know parties can get pretty expensive, especially if you have to pay per child. So here's my question
Have you experienced this at a party you have thrown or one that you have been to? Do you do thinks this is okay or out of line? How would you handle it if it were at a party thrown by you?
I've had parents bring sibs to some of my kids parties, but they have never asked if they could join in. I have always offered them food and cake, etc, when everyone was eating.
