I want to have a birthday party at the American café for my daughter who is 10 years and she wants to invite 3 friends do I have to pay for their parents transportation and meal?

Hello Mom,

How did you extend the invitation to the children? If only the children were invited for this birthday party, I do not understand why you would be paying for the grow ups. ​ ​If you invited the children as well as their parents, then the party is your treat. They are responsible for their own transportation.

I hope this helps. Sometimes the easiest solution is the sensible, practical one!

Have fun,
Ms. Practical Etiquette​
