to me, its anyone under 19.
so, from 10-19
my mom doesnt want to sit 10 year olds with 16-19 year olds... what do you think?
I think the teenagers are old enough to sit with the adults. My idea of a kids table has 12 and younger. A 16 or even 14 year old does not like to be segregated. I know it made me super mad when I was a teen and I had to sit at a "kids table" because it makes them feel like a child, but they are young adults. If you want you can have a "kids table" and then a separate "teen table" That would be nice.
thats what my mom wanted, a kids table and a teen table, but we dont have enough "under 19 guests) to make two tables.
I agree with sarah...having a separate table for the teens and then another for the kids (if there's enough of them) may work out better, however, if some are siblings or relatives, I think it could work either way...
If they are siblings it may work better, but if I was a random 19 year old and had to sit with a random 10 year old that would be wierd to me. A childrens table to me is like elementary school ages and younger....
- HMM :)
if i were 19 - i would totally not want to sit at a "kids" table - that's insulting!!! kids to me - anyone under 10 or 11...
I would have to say 17 and younger. 18 and over are technically considered adults (and even 17 in some states, right?) Do you know these "19, 18" year olds? Do they act mature or not? I guess if they are a very YOUNG 18 - sit em at the kids table. If you have a handful of teens - maybe you can sit them at one table and then the smaller kids at a different table. (delete that - I just re-read this post)....judget it on how they act, like my niece who will be 20 next year - I hope to hell she can act her age!! she is 19 and acts like 16 right now!!!
