My daughter is turning 13 and she just has to have the perfect party! She is adamant that she doesn't want anything embarrassing or cheesy, but her ideas involve an unsupervised party of twenty thirteen year olds! What can I do to offer her a great time and a little independence, but still satisfy my overprotective habits?

Just how unsupervised does she want it? I know when I was 13, I definitly didn't want my parents hanging around. Of course, they didn't mean they had to be banished from the house, just hiding in their bedroom where they couldn't disturb me and my friends. I think that, as long as you are home but not trying to get them to play charades, it should be fine. By the way, does she want a co-ed party or an all-girl shindig?

Let her pick somewhere to go, like bowling where you dont directly supervise but there are others around, or If she could lower her number of kids let them get thier nail & toes done & hen Pizza somehere. Good Luck

I have a 13 years old too, and she is very much like yours. on her birthday party in the house was out of question, she desided to celebrate her birthday by having fewer friends,we took them to the mall gave each some money for food and some for spending it at their faviorate store.(made sure that she has cell phone with her) and we went shopping for ourself and after afew hours all got together and came home for a quick cake and gift opening and they all had awsome time.I was voted the best mom that night. ofcourse my daughter didn't want to invite any boys (we will se how it goes next year). I agree with Mom#1. anything that makes them feel grown up and in control .but this way they are not all alone alone.

Last year, I let my daughter invite 30 people (boys and girls). I had an outdoor fire and they played outside, danced to music, roasted weenies, and made smores. Her friends that it was so much fun that alot of them did it for their birthday this year.

Yeah, Im turning 13 and im looking online right now trying to find some party ideas...i dont see what is wrong w/ an unsupervised party, even with parents in their bedroom. But let me just give u one tip...DO NOT, i repeat, DO NOT check up on the party. That will put ur daughter in a bad mood and feel untrusted...do u trust ur daughter?

Well I'll tell ya myraK 20 13 year old kids wow!! you defidently need to have supervision but, Let her be more of the host. if She wants to sit there with all her friends and watch a movie it's okay But, maybe you could sit there and watch the movie to or like... read a book so she thinks your not really paying attention to her and her friends. That will make her feel like she was on her own but your also there to make sure nothing goes wrong. See what I mean?

i'm turning 13 in June, and im looking for ideas. my mom like totally trusts me and im having guys and gurls at my partay. my friends and i will play and do games outside, then later well go hang out in my basement. she'll watch the games, but then let us go off on our own. she knows that i wouldn't like start playing spin the bottle w/ my friends, but it just matters how much you trust your daughter. you could do what my mom is doinng by watching the first half of the party, and if your sure they will be fine, then let them off on their own for a while. but the worst thing that could happen to me would be my mom saying that i can have a big bash with independence in the later part of the partay, and then her not trusting me on my own by checking on me every half an hour. that is totally embarrasing and she would probaly be a little angry at u.

I just had my 13th in october, my mom came up with a really cool idea, she took me and 4 of my girlfriends to go to get manicures and peticures then we went to a movie.. so think about it.

Well I'm turning 13 soon (thats how i found this site - i love google!) and i have a guest list of 15 people. I would really like for all of us to go get manicures and petticures and go to the movies, but think about it......15 people ?

is there a simple and semi cheap way to have loads of fun? my mom trusts me and i dont think she'll be supervising! besides , these are my best friends that are coming (no guys)

thanks for any help!

she is 13 yrs old she needs everything right.the popular kids and the cute boys.
trust her tell her that you trust her and that she will learn if she does something stupied, and that you will be there for her if she does.but every girl has a heartbreak and make a complete fool of herself ,but she needs a mum to help her through it.this party is just the begining!

Hey MyraK .... what i think you should do is give her a certain amount of children she can invite and during the party you can go check up on them every half hour or 15 min. or so thtz my advice

1st ask her what she likes or what she wants Then you check if its appropiate for her. Mostly 13yr olds want a party where guys come over .Where you can just have fun .They dont want parents that are behind their back.

Hey i am 13 so why dont you just give her a disco party and let 4 of them sleep over or summat ask her if she wants to do that but if u want her to have supervision then stand with the dj or summat. even i wont argue with that
