Q: How do I manage birthday parties?

A: Some families prefer to give multiple small birthday parties on different days especially as multiples get older. Some parents find having just one party that is appropriate for both boys and girls (bowling, circus, carnival, beach luau, etc) more relaxing. The cost of these parties can also be overwhelming, so many parents compromise by only having parties every other year. Have a talk with the family and explain the pros and cons of the different parties, but remember, parties are supposed to be fun.
