Your child has received an invitation to a birthday party at a theme-based restaurant followed by a sleepover from a classmate. The "small print" on the invitation asks parents to send $50 to cover their entertainment, meal and a movie the next day.
As it turns out, a kid from the neighborhood (who your child likes just as much) is also having a birthday party: there will be a pool party, DJ, face painting, the works. The "small print" on this invitation indicates that no money is needed and the only requirement is bringing a sleeping bag.
What would YOU do?
