A birthday is an important event in every teenager’s calendar. Many Edmonton teens spend months in eager anticipation of the day which is dedicated to them by their parents and peers and any failure in the execution of this event can be a trigger for strong, negative emotional outbursts. However, there are a few efficient birthday ideas that can help parents give their young man / lady the birthday party they will cherish along with their friends, such as:
1: The Rock Band party: If your teen is into music, ask them of a local band or Edmonton entertainer they like and find out if they’re available to play on that day. This is a great way for teenagers to bond together over food and non – alcoholic drinks. If there is enough space available, this party can be held in the comfort and safety of your own backyard. Just ensure that you have the permits necessary and your neighbors don’t object.
2: A pool party: Your teen can invite a group of his / her closest friends to spend the day having a pool party. Hire a DJ and a catering service to take care of music and food and have a chaperone handy, in case some parents have concerns. A set of games like water polo, Marco polo, Jousting can be very entertaining.
3: A slumber party: Ask your teen to invite some of his / her closest friends for a sleepover party. This type of party can be relatively easy to pull off in the comfort of your own home. You can rent some movies, order pizza and soft drinks. Other activities like karaoke, video games and eating contests are also good ways for your teen to spend time with his / her friends.
One word of advice that extends across all party types: food.
Teenagers can consume large quantities of food so make sure you have adequate stocks of tasty, nutritive snacks for your growing teen and his / her friends as well.
At this stage in life, a teenager wishes to enjoy the authority of being an adult but is still insecure of abandoning the security of childhood. So it is important from them to feel trusted by their parents. However, as a parent, it is your responsibility to make sure that your child isn’t overwhelmed by circumstances in such situations, so there need to be some firm ground rules set in place which both you and the child agree on. Of course, the very best idea is to let the teen plan the event as well. Not only will this be a good lesson in handling responsibility, but it will also set up the entire event exactly to their liking.
