    Default What do you think? Gender based birthday party

    What do you think? What do you think I think? Would you do anything about it? What do you hunk I've done (if anything).

    A girl in Ds1's daycare class (3 year olds) is having a birthday party and the parents have invited all the girls and none of the boys.

    I may be quiet until this evening - not ignoring everyone just busy at work.

    I personally don't have an issue with it. It's not like you're excluding just one or two kids. A good way to keep numbers down too.

    Eta: Growing up in primary school this was the norm where I was. Not this whole everyone has to be invited stuff.

    It wouldn't bother me. I never had boys at my parties as a kid.

    I don't think I went to a mixed gender birthday party until around 10? Where I was from it was the norm to have all girls/all boys parties.

    I had and attended girls only parties in primary school.

    I've always held, and my kids have attended mixed parties since pre school. But moth my DD and DS have opposite sex friends. I find it slightly odd but up to the parent. I would have far more issue if they invited 90% of the class and left out 2 kids.

    I don't have a problem with it at all, if that's what the child wants.

    I find it a little odd for the pre-school age group. I would have thought at 3 they were a little young to have made the gender differentiation in friendships. I don't think I'd do or say anything about it though.
