I just came across this piece of gold – http://www.mamamia.com.au/parenting/play-date-contracts/
I think its hilarious. Even as I type this, I am smirking – I don’t really know why cause it’s pretty sad.
Right now, Monkeyboy is at his mates place having a sleep over. He has been out all day with this mate and 4 other kids – Mother B, you are either crazy, drunk or a bloody genius. I’m going option 3. 4 kids, keeping each other occupied, having fun, being outdoors doing kid stuff. Lucky for me, I didn’t have to sign a contract for the play date. Mother B even mentioned that she will be getting beverages on the way home – see, bloody genius!
Anyway, I get off topic. This ‘contract’ is crazy isn’t it? Well apparently not according to the comments. Mostly the comments are saying that they understand where the parents are coming from – really? They are saying that it sounds like their house was getting over run by the neighbourhood kids – hey yo, here’s and idea – Hows about you say NO! To let it get to a point where you need to draw up a contract for your kids mates well maybe you should’ve sorted something sooner. It’s crazy I say, bloody crazy.
So, give it a read and let me know what you think – is it just me, or it this just a little extreme?
Adult play dates – What sort of contract would you need for this one!
