Doesn't want a SP at an event - be it birthday, wedding, graduation, etc, is it "tough luck, kid" or should their wishes be respected?
Is the respect contingent upon whether or not the SP agrees with the kids reason?
Ex: Graduation. Only a certain number of tickets available. Kid makes it clear that they are for dad, mom, siblings only. Is this an issue for the parent to fight - SP over sibling - or do wishes get respected?
Sweet 16, SK doesn't want a SP there because they know parent and SP do not get along and since this is a biggish party (*hypothetically) the parents went in together on it. SM and mom, for example, are unable to hide their disdain of one another, so to keep things less tense the kid says only parents, no SPs.
