&#10&#72&#111&#119 many times have &#121&#111&#117 &#100&#114&#111&#112&#112&#101&#100 your kids &#111&#102&#102 &#97&#116 a party, only &#116&#111 witness &#99&#104&#97&#111&#115 as soon as the door is opened &#98&#121 a hassled mother whose eyes &#97&#114&#101 begging you to take her away from all of this &#97&#110&#100 put her out of her misery?

&#10&#66&#101&#104&#105&#110&#100 &#104&#101&#114, two kids are swinging from &#116&#104&#101 &#108&#105&#103&#104&#116 &#102&#105&#116&#116&#105&#110&#103&#115 another pair are &#116&#101&#97&#114&#105&#110&#103 up the carpet, &#112&#114&#101&#115&#117&#109&#97&#98&#108&#121 trying to find &#97 hidden entrance &#116&#111 the magical world &#111&#102 Narnia and &#116&#104&#101 rest are &#100&#101&#101&#112&#108&#121 engrossed in a who-can-stuff-the-most-hamsters-into-your-mouth contest.

It neednt be like that…

&#10&#84&#104&#101 only reason &#116&#104&#97&#116 kids &#112&#97&#114&#116&#105&#101&#115 dissolve into little sessions &#111&#102 &#97&#110&#97&#114&#99&#104&#121 is boredom – and that, dear parent, is all down to you.

But, I &#116&#114&#105&#101&#100 &#115&#111 hard!, I hear you &#99&#114&#121. &#89&#101&#115, you &#112&#114&#111&#98&#97&#98&#108&#121 did: lots of &#99&#114&#105&#115&#112&#115, &#97 &#98&#105&#103 &#99&#97&#107&#101, and plenty of &#98&#97&#108&#108&#111&#111&#110&#115.

The &#116&#104&#105&#110&#103 is, you &#98&#114&#111&#107&#101 &#116&#104&#101 &#110&#117&#109&#98&#101&#114 one rule of kids parties. The rule that you &#109&#117&#115&#116 obey at all costs, unless you want your house destroyed by a legion &#111&#102 little monsters

NEVER, EVER PLAY MUSICAL CHAIRS!

Heres a &#115&#101&#99&#114&#101&#116: kids &#104&#97&#116&#101 the game. Even if they &#111&#110&#99&#101 &#101&#110&#106&#111&#121&#101&#100 it, theyve played it at every &#98&#105&#114&#116&#104&#100&#97&#121, Christmas &#97&#110&#100 &#101&#110&#100 of &#115&#99&#104&#111&#111&#108 party &#116&#104&#101&#121&#118&#101 ever been to.

Plus, youre the one who &#104&#97&#115 to cope with a &#100&#111&#122&#101&#110 or more &#98&#111&#114&#101&#100 kids &#99&#97&#114&#101&#101&#114&#105&#110&#103 round the edges of the &#114&#111&#111&#109 while two &#100&#101&#116&#101&#114&#109&#105&#110&#101&#100 finalists battle &#105&#115 out for that final &#115&#101&#97&#116.

&#10&#84&#104&#97&#116 leads me &#110&#105&#99&#101&#108&#121 to rule number two:

NEVER PLAY &#65&#78&#89 GAME THAT INVOLVE KIDS &#66&#69&#73&#78&#71 OUT

If &#121&#111&#117 play games &#116&#104&#97&#116 keep all the &#107&#105&#100&#115 &#105&#110&#118&#111&#108&#118&#101&#100 from start to finish, youve got &#116&#104&#101&#105&#114 attention and when youve &#103&#111&#116 their attention, they &#97&#114&#101&#110&#116 &#115&#99&#114&#97&#116&#99&#104&#105&#110&#103 &#116&#104&#101&#105&#114 name &#105&#110&#116&#111 the &#118&#97&#114&#110&#105&#115&#104 &#111&#102 &#121&#111&#117&#114 dining table. &#83&#105&#109&#112&#108&#101, really.
