You gave them several warnings and your child continued over and over to act horrible. You end up grounding them from playing with and having friends over.
Would you allow your child to go to her nephew's birthday party the very next day? Keep in mind, all of her friends will be there.
I may win the worst mother of the year award, but my daughter isn't going to the party. She isn't leaving this house or interacting with any playmates.
To define horrible: She was such a terror in HEB yesterday that a manager asked me to get into the express lane (with my cart full of items) because, " I can see you are having problems controlling your kid and we would appreciate it if you would go to lane 3 so that you can get out of the store faster".
She threw her jacket down, later on in the mall, refused to pick it up, and then proceeded to slide across the floor into a pregnant lady carrying a toddler.
Idk what the hell is wrong with my kid all of a sudden. She is a total damn nightmare in public, whines constantly and won't listen.
Anyways, sorry I'm rambling. Would you keep her home from the party? Am I seriously wrong in my thinking?

Yep- she needs to know you mean business & that her behavior must improve, or else. Stick to your guns mama. You're not a bad mom for hanging in there with the tough parental decisions. Have you tried telling her that Santa is watching?! :p

Well, she's old enough to know better. So unless something major is going on (like if she's acting out b/c of S/O leaving), then I would stick to your guns. You'll be suffering too, since you can't get a break for an hour or so, by dropping her off at the party! lol :p If she's been acting this way since shortly after he left- then you may want to look into some counseling for her (maybe thru her school?)

Good for you.
Are there other things going on? Is this a sudden change in her? I'd try to get to the bottom of it but either way she needs lots of love and consistent rules that aren't bent because of a birthday party.
