Are kids’ birthday parties getting too over the top?

A columnist and mum-of-two has written an article outlining why her children won’t be having birthday parties this year.

In a column for Mamamia, Shona Hendley, who has 4-year-old and 6-year-old girls, outlines five reasons why she’s taking a year-long break from kids’ birthday parties.

She said for both of her daughters first birthdays, she went all out.

In her article, she said she started feeling as though children’s┬áparties were beginning to take on a world of their own.

“I think it sort of kept carrying on, and I thought it’s probably time to have a bit of a rest and bring it back a bit,” she told Tom Elliott.

She said she’s guilty of over-compensating, and over-organising activities and games to keep the kids busy.
