    I went to a 6-year-olds party the other day and all the parents stayed. Is your son 3 as well or older?

    Thank you all for your replies. Atleast now I know what to do when my DS gets invited to birthday parties, its all new to me, I didnt know what age you should leave them etc. You have all been extremely helpful. I just worry I wont get along with everyone else because Im a young mum, but fingers crossed they like me

    My DS is 4 and I will be staying until he is about 6. Depends on the venue too I think. Macdonalds or somewhere enclosed I would be comfortable but park parties would be different as he likes to wonder and take off sometimes chasing a bird or goodness knows what else. I don't feel a host would be able to keep an eye on all the kids at all times! (nor should it be their responsibility at that age)

    If there's an option to not stay I don't. My dd1 is nearly 6.

    But it also depends on the environment and who's having the party.

    I mostly stay with my 5yo and always with my 3yo. I am just starting to leave my 5yo as these are school friends he has known for at least this year, many from kindy last year too.

    I like to chat and get to know the other mums too
