My dd made some friends at school, the kids mom asked me for play dates. The kids family is very rich. Dh says to let him play at school but stay away from them otherwise as they are rich and spoiled. Wwyd?


dh also works with with the kids father and my child has a mild disability which we dont want anyone to know of.

I'd not be so judgemental and let the kids play

Are they brats? If not then those kids can't help being rich, they need friends too.

I would let your dd decided if he wants to play with them outside of school or not

 do a playdate.  Just because they are rich doesn't mean that they are spoiled

The kids are not rich, the parents are.

Not everyone who has money is spoiled. How judgmental.

If you feel it's a safe environment, let them play. It's not up to you to decide who they connect with friends-wise on a racial, financial, level etc. If it interferes with anyone's safety, sure. What are you teaching them by keeping them from playing with those kids? To be bitter, resentful? Let them find out for themselves, insist on the rules you keep in your household regardless of the friends and I don't see the problem.
