  • I've had the same problem in the past, and we had to move... It got so bad... All I can say is good luck... I went through it, and I still don't have the answers.

  • Why do they hate you? What's the background here?

    What a shitty thing to do to you and your daughter. :( I'm sorry.

  • Wow, poor kid. Thats really immature of another adult to do. Its almost like its to spite you and rub it in your face. She should have invited everyone that knows her daughter. We as parents sometimes hang on to offenses with our kids that the kids get over so quickly but we keep it going as adults. The girls probably would be fine and get along if the mother would let it go. I am sorry your child has to deal with this. Kudos to you for being the mature one and taking that child a gift. Did you speak to the mother when you went down there? Was this a party planned by the mom or a block party? Maybe next time, just take your daughter and leave. Either go out to eat, or shopping or take her to another friends house. Don't stay home and watch everyone having fun from the windown. Some people just need to grow up. So sorry.

  • Find other friends and do things with them. It isn't fair that she is being left out but I hate to say it, life is not fair. We have to learn that from an early age and it hurts. Concentrate on other friends, invite them over and do things with them. Have parties of your own with different friends. Why would you keep her outside to watch what was going on? Take her somewhere, the park, to dinner or a movie. I would also talk to the mom and the other moms in the neighborhood, if it is a party for the neighborhood, all neighbors should have been invited. It's just the right thing to do, not that everyone does the right thing.

  • go fork her yard or tee pee her house, but forking the yard is much funnier!!!! go to the store buy a good bit of plastick forks one night when no one is away go over and take all of them handle first and stick them in the ground so she sees the eating part of the fork, its quite funny i've done it as a practical joke!!! that or you could paintball her car?

  • Forking the yard?! LMAO Haven't seen that done in AGES!

    But, honestly, OP. I think the party throwers are just as immature as their kid. Just let your daughter know that she was too good and too sweet to go or just let her know that they didn't invite her because they are jealous of her. Really, they were pretty immature about the whole thing. I say throw your DD a party with friends from the same neighborhood and just ignore them. If they happen to show up, tell them to get lost. It's invitation only to your daughter's party and anyone who didn't get an invite is not good enough to be around her. :)
