What did you or plan to do for your teenagers 16th birthday? Is it still considered important? What kind of presents? Just any random thoughts. I havent broached the subject yet with DS but just want to get an idea of what the expectations are. Thankfully he has never seen my sweet 16th lol.
DS2 is 16 on sat, we are buying him a blackberry phone (not one of the very expensive ones) - it's the middle of GCSE's so he's not even having some pals round, his choice - presume he will do that once the exams finish.
though on the other hand he went to a girls 16th a couple of weeks ago - marquee, food, beer and wkds, djs from a radio station, pink glittery cupcakes - sounded like a sweet 16 party but they had all enjoyed it so i guess anything goes.
DS2 was 16 a couple of weeks ago, he had some friends over on the Friday eve (GCSEs had just started so it was a nice way to finish the first week), and he is going paintballing with friends after the exams.
Thanks. @Maryz I for sure will NOT be allowing a party at home. he is the oldest and agreed I do not want the responsibilities for all those drunk and disorderly teenagers. Esp here where the drinking age is 21!!!
