Birthday Gift Dilemma
Posted by By: Dr. Laura Berman on February 07 2019
Dr. Berman, I am a single mom and my daughter’s father is not in the picture and does not help support us. We get by, but not to the level of the other kids at her school. I struggle to pay rent in a better area so my daughter gets the best education available. I am lucky that my friends have older daughters and she can wear their hand me downs and still stay fashionable and fit in. What is bothering me now that they are a little bit older is that they all have these big birthday parties and give out fancy goody bags. They also invite every kid in the class. It puts me in a tough spot because I want her to go, but it’s hard with all the gifts these kids get. I struggle to buy presents for them all. My daughter’s bday is in the middle of June. I’ve done smaller things in the past, but I feel pressure to invite the whole class. I was thinking about skipping the party this year for her and taking her to my moms, but I would hate for her to miss out on all the great gifts that I won’t be able to get her. What do I do? Sandra
