Birthdays Without Pressure

Marking Runspotrun’s birthday got me thinking about birthday celebrations in general. If you have experienced almost competitive birthday parties among your children’s friends, you are not alone. Linda Zwicky apparently mentioned the problem at a parenting class she attended and the teacher put her in touch with a University of Minnesota professor, Bill Doherty, who was studying the problem. Last January they launched the helpful site Birthdays Without Pressure. You can get ideas, share your experiences, or let’s see, maybe just feel assured that other places have it worse. 🙂
