In our home we never expected the kids to make a deal of any sort for DH's nor my birthday; we don't feel it is their place. But if in your home you do I think the parent whose birthday it isn't should take the kids and assist them in making something for the parents for their birthday. A gift doesn't have to be a store bought item. And it doesn't have to really cost much is the thought that counts. They could make a coupon book with things they could do for you, little projects around the home or a coupon you could call in for them to make dinner or lunch one day. During good weather they could simply go outside and gather some wild flowers for a bouquet. So, rather than take it out on the kids and not doing something for their special day and making them feel bad lay the responsibility on the parent whose day it isn't if you believe something should be done.
