Dear Abby,

When I was in high school my dad reunited with his childhood friend. He had a little girl who, despite the age difference, I got along with perfectly. We would paint our nails, do our hair, etc. Over the years we drifted but still keep in touch.

When this girl was 14 she found out her dad was having an affair. It took a year of therapy for the truth to come out and it really messed her up. Since then she hasn't gotten along well with her dad, who always insists on having his girlfriend there when she visits.

Now I'm planning my son's birthday party. I consider him a friend and would like him to bring his 7yro son to the party. But I also want to invite his daughter and I know he'll want to bring along his girlfriend. What do I do?

If I wanted to read a Dear Abbie column, I know where to find it.

Invite everyone and expect them to conduct themselves as if they were adults.

This. Invite them but make sure you let them throw that the other is invited and best behaviour will be expected. If either one of them doesn't show up, well you did your best. If both show up and there is a problem, quietly kick them out.

How many half siblings do you have?

I don't have half siblings but she is like an adopted sister.
