Having four kids means I’ve hosted a lot of birthday parties in my day. I’ve done the ridiculous, over the top parties (I’ve learned to seriously tone if down over the years) to the more intimate, ‘just a few close friends’ parties.
One thing I’ve always insisted on, regardless of my kids age, is that they open the presents during the party. I’ve noticed over the recent years that many parties are transitioning towards kids not opening their gifts, and it’s always confused me as to why they wouldn’t?
What do you think?
