Just need some ideas, please ladies. I took my son (Prep) to a birthday party this afternoon, and was astounded by the number of parents who just dropped their children off and then left. Only myself and two other mums stayed.
It got me thinking that I don't want the same situation occurring at our son's party in October. I don't want to be responsible for other people's children - not because I can't be bothered, but because I know how quickly things can go wrong if there's an accident or a child has an allergic reaction to something.
So...how would you word it on the invitation, that we expect parents to stay for the duration of the party. I don't want to come across as rude, but I also want the parents to know that my husband and I are not going to be responsible for other people's kids at a party. Thanks
