If you are fortunate enough to be raising a middle-schooler here in Wauwatosa you should prepare yourself for little Justin or Britney to come home from school any day now and tell you about the boy/girl party they have been invited to. If you haven't been through this before, here are a few tips from someone who has- with mixed results.
Even if you know the parents of the host or hostess, call to make sure all the details that your son or daughter shared with you about the get together are accurate. My children suffered at times from "Selective Memory Loss" so clarify anything that doen't sound crystal clear. Of course your kids will complain that "you're the only parent that is going to call- why don't you trust me!?" but in my opinion your kids will recognize your love and concern.
