We have this neighbor girl. She's 8 and, to be blunt, very obnoxious. She comes over whenever we are outside, takes ds (4) toys out, asks for snacks, invites herself to go places with us (I say no). She found out the other day about ds birthday party & told me ds wants her to go. Ds never said that. So I said he only invited his school & church friends, he didn't even invite his other neighbor friends, not even his 4 year old "girlfriend" . Yesterday this girl told ds she had a present for him & told me she needs directions to the party. Only WE didn't invite her. How do I tell her she can't come? It's at a bounce place & we are allowed 25 kids & have exactly 25 coming. If I was allowed to add more kids, I would have to pay more $ of course. And I couldn't just have her from our development, I'd have to invite a couple others, too. I want to be nice about it, but she doesn't get it.Answer Question

Why don't you tell her it has been cancelled so there is no more party and the day of the party just have your party and when everything is said and done don't say anything about the party try not to be outside for those days before or after the party that way you can have your time with the family and if she comes over just let her know that that day is not a good day to come out. After the days go by give her a bag of candy I am sure she will be just as happy tell her you bought it for her bc of the party being cancelled....idk GL

Go to her parent and tell them how she is acting and inform them of the party she is not invited to. Let them deal with her. If the girl still bothers you, just tell her point blank "you are not invited".
