Chapter Seven – The Sweet 16 Girl Gives Back – Parting Thoughts
After the party winds down and the Sweet 16 Girl looks ahead to her future with great excitement, she’ll feel even better about herself if she takes on some mantle of responsibility at this moment, no matter how humble.
Thank You Cards
These are a must. They must be sent out; the sooner the better. The Sweet 16 Girl must express her gratitude to her guests for attending her party and giving her gifts. There is no excuse for overlooking this.
You can hire a printer to customize your cards, you can purchase pack cards from a stationery store, or you can make your own at home. Just be sure that you send them out.
A printer can offer a printed sentiment inside your Thank You Card, but the Sweet 16 Girl must sign it by hand. Ideally, she should write the entire sentiment by hand too.
Some Sweet 16 Girls return home on the night of their parties with thousands of dollars in gifts. Now that this huge windfall has come her way, it may be a good idea for her to consider those who are less fortunate, or to stand up for a cause in which she believes. A small percentage of this money could be given to a worthy cause.
A girl’s 16th Birthday is a very exciting moment in her life that will never come around again. I’d suggest that the girl, her family and her friends treasure it for everything that it’s worth.
Too often, I speak to parents who are at their wits’ end from the stress of planning the party and sticking to the timetable of preparation. Because I am a stranger to them, a disembodied voice on the telephone taking their order, they feel comfortable using me as a confessor. They speak of ﬁnancial hardships, impossible teenagers, pressure from ex-spouses and the problems of being over scheduled and overwhelmed.
I will never diminish the toll that these problems take on people. I understand that it’s real. But I’d urge everyone involved with a Sweet 16 to focus on the best of what it will bring. It’s a milestone, a life transition, the experience of a young girl ﬁnding her own voice and making her ﬁrst contributions to society. The party gives you the opportunity to come together with those you love for a very happy occasion.
If you lose sight of happy occasions, life becomes just a little bit drearier.
I’d advise you to seize this moment of happiness and enjoy it completely.
