Hated for reasons unknown adult content

Well my DD is about to turn 16 and is having her party this Sunday. I asked her if she knew who was coming and who was not. She told me one of her closer friends was not coming. I was kind of surprised, but asked if it was because she had other plans or simply needed a ride, because I'm all for picking them up and taking them home. Apparently she is not coming because her parents hate me. I'm like umm ok. Of course I am fine with being hated, but I have been racking my head trying to figure out WHY they don't care for me. I've only met her mom a couple of times and we made small talk. Nothing too controversial. Her dad I don't think I ever officially met. He gave my daughter a ride home a couple of times and I remember thanking him. DD says it's because I'm awesome. Granted her friend's parents seemed a little strict and serious. Oh well. So anyone else want to hate me today?? Flagged just in case.

  • If you do call them, ask if her getting a ride is the issue because you are willing to pick her up and drop her off for them.

    For some reason, I might have a good time putting them on the spot in this situation.

  • they hate you cause they ain't you.

  • It's their loss. Hating someone who doesn't even know that she's hated, or why, seems pretty futile for the hater.

  • No hate from me. I'm probably sort of like you (not in awesome department, but not completely strict on my kids).

    What can you say, haters gonna hate.

  • If it is truly a really good friend of your Daughter then I'd call like Quinn said!

  • AWE, you were being hated on last week too, weren't you? LOL, I get confused.

    Parents like the ones hating on you are doing an injustice to not only your child but their own!
    I would want to know why myself, just so I could tell them where to eff off if their reasoning is ridiculous! Then, they'd have a reason to hate you.

  • Personally, I'd put them on the spot. I'd call and be like, "Hey, Sally's having a birthday party and Jane says she can't come. Can you tell me why?" lol

    I seriously would, though. Not to try to force them to be honest and admit they hate me, but to find out if there's a way we can resolve this so that my kid could have her best friend at her party.

  • Sounds like the story got mixed up somewhere. Call and ask.

  • I'd call and ask why. No apologies, just an explanation, please.
    Probably some bullshit excuse like she heard there would be boys there or something completely false.

  • Parent to parent communication is always a good thing in my book. There can always be a little inadvertant "flair" to the story that is added as it is filtered though teens. I'd give the other mom a ring and personally invite her daughter to the party and see what is up.
