I'm just curious how everyone does this.
I'm not talking just about things that result in fights, but, yeah, that too.
I'm also talking about things like, for example, if my daughter gets invited on to (insert your special team or event here) do you try to create some kind of parity for the other kids?
When they want to go to different parks.
When one wants to stay home and the other wants to go somewhere.
I'm talking about differences that naturally come with age, and times when age is irrelevant. Also, differences of ability, skill, talent.
I'm asking about hurt feelings. Or perhaps not hurt feelings, just about allocation of time and resources and a parent's sense of fairness.
I'm asking about day-in-day-out life and also about schooling and unschooling and special events and classes.
Oooh, suddenly this is a big question. What made me think of this is not so much a current problem (well, the stay home/ go out decisions can get hairy) but because my oldest did get invited on the team, and it made me think.
