Re: Mommy Mistake - How To Fix? Took Away 5yo's Birthday Party
I guess I would just let the "no party" ruling stand. I don't really see it as a parenting mistake, though that comes from someone who only occasionally has birthday parties anyway. I think it's probably more upsetting to you than her. Is this the biggest consequence she has ever had? If so, maybe it will have an impact.
My parents cancelled a planned Halloween party because of bad behavior when I was a kid. It did have an impact on my attitude going forward. I had to call my friends and tell them it was cancelled.
