Re: Play date etiquette ??
I wouldn't expect you to stay for a 6yr old playdate. If your daughter has developed a friendship with this other little girl who doesn't sign, she must have figured out some way of communicating?
In this situation I might expect the other mom to stay for a few minutes to make sure her daughter knew where our bathroom was and how to get in touch with me if there was a problem.
I bet she'll be fine. 6yr olds have pretty simple needs so I'm sure the other mom can figure it out for an hour or two.
So protocol.. Generally you take her to the door, communicate important info about how to reach you, what time to pick her up, allergies... usually by the time that is done the kids have run off to play...
