ds1 is going to be 11 this year. Every year he's had a big party that ends up costing a few hundred euro. I just don't have the money this year and I said to him, you're getting a bit big to have a huge party now aren't you?

Is this unfair of me?

Nope, perfectly reasonable

I've done 'big ones' in Yr R and Y1 for my dc's after that they have been graded medium or small.

Though 13yrs seems to be an excuse for antoher big one so be warned ....

Medium = 15 tops

Small = 6 tops (bowling, or cinema, pizza, sleepover etc)

I am entertainer and I do the big parties mainly for 4,5 and 6 year olds. I am happy to entertain older kids but most parents, understandably, have party fatigue by year 2! Some do have a big party in Year 6 but usually Year 2 onwards it's pizza, cinema, laserquest etc. There's lots of restaurent deals on
