12th Birthday Party

My son is turning 12, but he doesn't like little boy games. He likes paintguns and go carts. I don't have that much money. Please help fast.

    Paintguns can be an expensive past time, but what about water pistols for a massive water fight with the guests? My sons liked that sort of thing at that age. How about a weiner roast/campfire, water fight, and cake? Another possibility is a pay your own way kind of party. I've sent my sons to parties for paintball or snowboarding -- more expensive activities -- and they had to pay to go. However, if it was me hosting, I'd go with the lower cost option, and pay for it myself.

    My son is turning 12 next month in May. He has allergies and also asthma, so grass and heat are really not an answer. I really need help and on a budget. What would fun for his age?

      Camping! Even if you can't afford a campground, if you or a friend have a big back yard, you're all set! You could have a BBQ during the day, have a water balloon fight, or swimming, if you have a pool, you can swim, play some sports, do some Archery, fishing, hiking, make s'mores around a fire, and sleep in tents in the back yard! My son loves to do that. You can always find people who can give the kids a fishing lesson, (maybe one of the dads) or a lesson on how to build a campfire! The only thing that will cost money is the food for the BBQ, s'mores and drinks. Just have hotdogs, hamburgers, chips, popcorn, juice, lemonade or Kool-aid!

      Ask friends if they have any skills in fishing, etc., and ask them for an hour of their time, they may be happy to!

      Have a fun birthday!

      My son is soon turning 12 and he has been going through an emotional time, as he is gay. I don't know what to do for his party. Please help. ASAP

      As a former child myself I say the number one thing is to invite people who will actually come. No-shows are devastating at that age. What do the kids he knows like to do? Make the party something they will want to come to.

      I have an 11 year old boy who is gonna be 12 soon and he has dyspraxya. I was wondering if you could help me to sort out something for him and his friends to do on his birthday.

      Does your son's school have a speech-language pathologist? If so, consult her. She's studied dyspraxia, knows what is popular in school for kids his age, and might have an inside line on what he and his friends can do together that wouldn't be too difficult for him. There's nothing worse than being sidelined watching others have all the fun. She'd also be able to consult with his teacher, and together, they might have picked up on some things he's failed to mention to you that are going on or that kids in your area are wanting to do.
