Would you punish your kid this way?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My friend RSVP'd to my sons party. I told them I have to pay $15 per child so please let me as soon as you can. I also told them to order extra pizza so I counted the adults in for that. They say "no refunds" on the paper I signed.

Her son was bad at school today and she cancelled for the party. I think that is so rude! I bought these nice party favors, paid per child and counted them in on extra pizza. There isn't a better way to punish him. I would never RSVP and not go unless my kids were sick or there was an emergency. I think it's completely rude.

It is rude.  And you should have told her everything you said here.

Look, every time you have a party there is a cost per person.  It may  not always be as spelled out as in this case because you're going to a specific venue and paying per child, but it's always technically there.  And there will always be instances where something comes up and a guest may have to back out last minute.  To  me, that's just part of having a party and part of life.  Honestly, I know you were just trying to get RSVPs in a timely fashion, but I find it a bit tacky that you told the guests how much it was costing you per child...

Sure, it would be lovely of her to offer to reimburse you, but I don't think it's completely necessary, nor do I think she's completely out of line for disciplining her own kid in the way she sees fit.  More pizza for you!

I never told them how much. I said let me by such and such date because I have to pay per child. That's tacky? Oh well. I think it's tacky to say you're going somewhere and don't show up.

This lady put her four year old in time out for THREE hours for not eating dinner. She's an idiot.

Quoting nerdymom28:

 She has every right to punish her child how she sees fit. That being said; yes. I would do that for punishment. But I would offer to reimburse you for the money you spent on the party.

 Yup, I'd do that. I would offer to pay my kids portion. BUT, at the same time, there isn't a party I have planned where the cost is $15 per child and wasn't fully prepared to pay the price in case other kids couldn't come then divide the coins (or fun) so the kids that came had more.

 Depending on what my kid did in school, then yes I wouldn't let them go but since it was at a facility then I would apologize and offer to pay back their share and drop off the birthday kid's present another day.
