Parents of older kids: Assuming the invitation doesn't specify, at what age would you start asking the parents whether it was a drop-off party? At what age(s) would you think it was weird if some invitee's parent called and asked whether it was drop-off, both too young and too old?
Why I ask: I'm an attempting-to-reform helicopter parent and also apparently just not-so-much with the social clues. I hadn't really thought about dropping him off at parties yet until the most recent party we attended; most of the parents stayed and 3 or 4 dropped their kids off.
My secret selfish reason: What can I do to make it clear that Kiddo's birthday party is not drop off? There's no way I'm interested in supervising 10 four year olds.
Also, my original subject line was "drop-off parties," but re-reading it looked like "drop-off panties." I should have left it, y/y?
