Mum sparks outrage after charging ridiculous fee to attend son’s birthday party

A mum in the UK has turned to the internet for advice after another parent advised her of the crazy attendance fee for her son’s birthday party.

The topic soon sparked a fiery debate on parenting site Mumsnet when the mum shared her son had been invited to a go-karting party that would cost her £70 (about AUD$125)

On the site, the woman explained that her son had been invited and transport to the event would be provided.

“DS (Darling Son) is at a newish school – he was so happy to have been invited to a karting birthday party – turns out the whole class were invited – details were – the date – the activity – transport provided (it’s a 80 mile round trip) and a request of Amazon vouchers for present,” she wrote.
