My son is just 4 and I play date the odd time. His best friend moved crèches so they don´t see each other anymore but I wouldn´t socialise with parents or kids from his creChe or soon to be school!
I agree with you completEly

Hi there I have an outgoing 6 year old daughter, as well as 3 yr old and 1.5yr old daughters. My 6 yr olds friend is constantly on ´play dates´ ( haha this word annoys me!)

I stick with school for my 6 yr olds socialising. She´s spends weekends at home with her family (us and her sisters)
Every time I speak to my friend whose daughter is in her class, she has arranged a play date literally every wkd, with diff girls in the class.

Should I be doing this?? Coz I don´t see the need! She has her school pals in school time, and her family and neighbours in the summer. I don´t see the need for this!
Ps my friends child is equally outgoing and has siblings also.

My daughter, 6, had her first playdate last week, her friend to here...all kids seem to be at it and hated her to feel left out..sleepovers not allowed though...
