My daughter will be turning 15 tomorrow and she don't know how to celebrate her birthday. Last week she ask me that she already noticed that nowadays it seems birthdays are not to much to celebrate not like before. We normally celebrate at home I cooked different kinds of food and invite her classmates and my friends even their kids. But since now she already noticed that most of her classmates too did not celebrate to much she don't want it all also. I already ask her if she want to go out and eat but she's still undecided. I'm planning to take her to movie and eat. I don't know what will happen tomorrow. Does your kids tell you what they want for their birthday or you ask them?

You have a lovely daughter Lyn well my daughter last year when she turned 7 did not celebrate as well, we find it impractical to celebrate that much nowadays as money is hard. But since this year she is turning 8 she wants to have a celebration, she even told how her friend got a celebration, a pool party and she wishes she will also have one as it have been years since she had a birthday party..the last time we celebrated that big for her was when she was 1 and 2 years old! So this year we plan to give her a party that she will love.

Congratulations to your daughter who turned seven. that's true that children don't go for huge parties because it's literally expensive.besides, all of that is nothing than just expense and garbage afterwards. gone are the days were kids can have huge parties and then have some fun with games. but i do recall my middle brother had a huge party for his youngest daughter

They usually do start hinting around a month or two before their b-day what they would like to have or what they would like to do. When they were little I used to do parties for them but as they got older, they were happy with more personal/private type celebrations. The thing they seemed to like the most was having a couple of friends over for the night. I didn't get much sleep on those nights.

How I wish they can do that to, I'm open with her friends I know most of them are good and not bad to be my daughter friends I trust them as much as I trust my daughter too. But they have school today and they don't have a chance to sleep over this weekdays.

When they reach that age, just like my 16 year old son, they sort of become unpredictable already and seems to be developing a mind of their own. I understand how you feel cause we miss the times when they were babies and we could easily control them and know exactly what they want, you are right, if she is undecided till now then just leave her alone and give her time and space to think but just be ready with a little cash on hand when she decides cause they could be too emotional as well at times, just have some money ready

Advance Happy Birthday to her. She's a teenager and I think when I was that age all I wanted was to hang out with friends and have something cool for myself as a gift. I am always happy to receive presents. Anyway, whatever you decide for her, I hope it will turn out great and that she will love it.

Hello Lynboobsy11, I don't know because i don't have a kid. but my nephews and niece would have a party with balloons when ever their birthday would come. they usually cooked them of their favorite pasta food with other cakes and necessities and then takes picture and do other stuff. he had cousins on his birthday but i doubt this one

I think since she's already a teenager that's why she don't want have to have a party. Pizza is okay with her.

Kids are getting practical these days my dear. It's good your daughter is not thinking of big parties anymore. Maybe you can buy her something for her birthday, something that she really likes to have. Happy Birthday to your daughter and wish her all the best

I always gave my daughter a big party. I was sad that on her 18th birthday I was putting her out of my house. so we were not on good terms and she was evicted days after her birthday. Now,she is back home and we are getting along better. if she could just clean up we will be even better.

It's okay gifts sometimes there are things that you can't handle even if it is not in your plan but you have to do it for your own good. I'm glad that even you been fighting together before she's still making up things to you.

Lucky me, I do not have any kids. Ah, but if I did, I am sure it would be six of one and half a dozen of the other, meaning they would tell me and I would also ask them to make some choices, and they probably would not get everything they wanted.

the kids, the teens are not already asking for their birthdays to be celebrated like this or that. but the one, the little boy, when he knows that his birthday is coming, he will request for this and that. he wants to be his birthday this way or what he wants in his birthday. last week, it's also my daughter's 15th. we simply celebrated hers in a foodstore, you know JB?

My children are significantly younger than your daughter and they are still at the ages where they look forward to their next birthday from the time that Christmas has passed the previous year. We have established many family traditions that go with birthdays and that does mean that when their birthdays come around, we go out to eat together and invite the extended family as well. Sometimes the kids will be allowed to have a birthday party with their friends, but that really does depend on how their behavior has been.
