Question:

Can children attend a Simcha when their parent is sitting shiva

Answer:

The halachos of ” misablim imo” that the child of a mourner (or the spouse of a mourner sitting for a parent), that the relative mourns together with them, only applies if the relative is in the same city, but not if they are in a differant city. It also only applies to a wedding or sheva brachos, but not to other simchos.

May we only share in simchos.
