    Default Is your child invited to birthday parties?

    I'll elaborate:
    + How often was your child invited to day care kids birthday parties?
    + Do you think a lack of invites (less than 2 per year) in a class of 24 is an indication of how liked/unliked/social/unsocial your child is?

    Oh wow.. I'd never even thought about daycare kids birthday parties?! Should Hayden be getting invited to birthday parties? He's there 3 days a week... but he's only 2. I honestly had never thought about that. I wouldn't have thought it standard to invite other kids from daycare to your kids birthday party?

    For the short amount of time DD1 attended daycare, she wasn't once invited to a party.
    I don't think it's any indication as to how well liked your child is. Depends though, how old are we talking?

    We got one invite while DD was at daycare. Actually I lie - we got two, I just lost one before I could RSVP. I assumed other kids weren't having parties?

    None for preschool yet.

    Only reason I ask is my child is only 4 so not in school yet... And a friend and I were discussing it a while back. Her daughters gets lots of invites, whilst my son has only received 2 in 2 years. I will be inviting kids from his day care in November as alot of them he's been in same class for the last 2 years and will more than likely go to same school as them next year :-)

    I know where my DS goes, big b'day parties are not the done thing. So most of the time, no day care kids go, or on the 3-5y.o room maybe 2 or 3 day care friends are invited. So DS has been to none, and i expect him to be invited to none until he makes good friends when he's older.

    ETA I am quite happy to avoid kid's b'day parties as long as possible!

    2 out of 24 in a year for kindy is pretty normal I think...
    It's different than say when they are at school...

    I dont think DD got invited to one whilst she was at kindy, at school she goes to about 2 a month.

    I think it's an age thing absolutely.

    I can't answer for daycare but I can for school.

    I have kids that are invited to a lot of parties as in maybe 1 one month and 2 the next and then I have kids that get NONE at all. I think it has to do with there popularity, the age of the child and if they have SN. My SN kids Aspergers and ADHD hardly ever or never get invited. My older child hated parties and would go very often so in the end people stopped asking her as they didn't want to put in a hard place for her. It only been in the last year or too, that she was able to start socialising again. Now it seems she is out all the time. (she 18 and lives in another state for uni. I am so happy for her.

    My boys have been in care on and off for over 2years and we have never once had an invite, to be honest it never even crossed me mind, I would never invite a daycare kid to one my boys birthday parties, we usually just keep it to family and close friends, i'm not one for elaborate parties.

    DS1 is at kindy this year, he was going to daycare prior. He has been invited to a few at daycare but I find most parents this age have had small family parties rather than inviting friends of the kids. We had a family one for ds's first bday and had a big party inviting lots of kids for his second, then had a family one in Perth for his 3rd and this year we are having a big party with 20kids and adults included for a combined 1st and 4th birthday for our ds's this Saturday. I tried to limit the invites inviting our close friends with kids and about 8 out of ds1's closest class mates. I was thinking oh if I don't invite this child then ds may not get invited to his party as being a small town and all people will know you are having or have had a party but... what do you do? Can't be expected surely to invite the whole 30 kids in the class!
