    Bring the children to the party Or Take the children to the party?

    Do they mean the same thing?

    Re: Which is gramatically correct?

    They are both grammatically correct. They do not mean exactly the same. If you are at the party, you could phone someone and say "Bring the children to the party". If you and the children are not at the party, you could take them there.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    For somebody who's not already at the location, then 'bring' suggests that you'll be attending the party along with your kids, while 'take' suggests you'll just drop the kids off, but not attend it yourself.

    Welcome to the forum, nmego.

    Please note that a better title would have been bring or take?

    Incidentally, you could go for orthographically correct too, and ask "Which is gramMatically correct?"
