Would You Take Your LO... HotMom21ERF Due December 17 (twins); 1 child; Kentucky 20246 posts

to the birthday party of a kid from daycare? You don't know the kid, or his parents at all. DS is 3 and got a birthday invitation from a little boy in his class. It is at a place that is about 30-45 min from where we live. I have no clue who this little boy is, or his parents, but on the other hand , I kind of would like to take him so he can socialize and have some fun. I posted this in SN because my son is mildly autistic and I'm also wondering if the party might be too much for him. What would you do?

of course I would. If I invited the kids from my sons day care to his party I would be counting on them being there

I would. Now you have all of that Parents contact info, so maybe you could set up a playdate at a park or somewhere before the party, to get a feel for them.

The thing is, it is tomorrow and I will feel bad for giving them such the short notice of us coming. But yeah, I would like to take him, and if it gets too much for him, we will excuse ourselves and leave I guess. I just wish I actually knew someone that is going to be there lol.

Anthony has been invited to a few but he never wants to go. He says he would only want to go if it's one of the few friends he is close with at preschool. He prefers to play with his older cousins/friends from outside of school and doesn't like how some of the kids at preschool always have trouble playing cooperatively so I don't make him go if he thinks they aren't nice.

I let my DD decide (on non-family members birthday parties). If she says she wants to go I take her.

I would go. My 3 year old loves going to birthday parties. He has so much fun! It will give your son a chance to socialize and for you to meet other parents.

My kids started daycare at 3 and 4 weeks old, they went to their first parties at 12 months old, and it was just drop offs, parents didnt need to stay, so yes I would let him go.
