Newsflash people, not everyone is going to like someone. It doesn't even matter their reasoning as to why. Not everyone is going to accept your child or want to be their friend. It doesn't matter if they are special needs or not. Not every parent is going to make their child be friends with someone. Not being friends with someone or inviting them is NOT bullying!!! Get over it.

I was JUST thinking this. When my daughter gave some of her classmates invitations, her dad thought it was rude not to invite everyone. But there were a couple of girls in her class that she felt were really mean to the other kids. She didnt want to invite them and I didn't force her too do it. That's life! You won't be invited to every party and not everyone will like you.

Life is going to be full of heart break and hurt feelings...get used too it. *shrugs*

True. But "every child in the class EXCEPT one" just sounds wrong.

I agree. I don't invite people to my home I don't like, why should my child be forced to.

that's the way it goes sometimes. Inviting someone you can't stand and hoping they stay home doesn't change things. Chances are the child will get excluded at the party too.

Not inviting one person IS rude. Its called having tact. You either invite all the kids or a select amount.

Also as a sn mom, this is something that annoys me.  If my kid is acting up, it's not always because he's got special needs.  Sometimes he's just acting up because he's a kid.

And special needs kids can be jerks too.  If a kid doesn't like a special needs kid, it's not always becuase the kid has issues.  Sometimes they just aren't liked.  And that's ok!

i turn into a massive bitch if people I don't like are invited over. I can even hide my disdain.

I agree, but I still try to guide my DD into playing with everyone and if she doesn not like them she still needs to respect them and their feelings.
