Excerpt from Babyhood, Vol. 2: A Monthly Magazine for Mothers, Devoted to the Care of Infants and Young Children, and the General Interests of the Nursery; December, 1885, to November, 1886
It is hardly necessary to allude to even graver dangers involved in the congregating of a large number of children for several hours. A child will often plead to be allowed to partake in the long-anticipated enjoyment even if the day of the event finds it slightly ill, and parents are sometimes weak and fool ish enough to yield. In the management of children's parties too much attention cannot be paid to the sanitary aspects. In all cases afternoon parties ought to be substituted for the evening entertainments, and the tempera ture of the room, the avoidance of draughts, etc., ought to receive at least as much atten tion on the part of parents as the personal appearance of their little ones.
