Okay my son turns 6 at the end of the month. I'm planning a small party for him at my house. Only family and friends are going to be invited. Well my best friend R is newly divorced and is dating a man D. The problem with D is he drinks heavily. Like 24/7. I was raised around that and told myself that i would not put my children around that. So here's my delima. I obviously want my best friend R there with her children, just not D. I do not drink, neither does dh so my children aren't around that. Is it rude to ask her to leave him behind so she and the kids can attend the party? And if it isn't how in the world do i tell her? Thanks
Wow!!! I didn't know i would get so many replies. But thank you sooo much. I sat her down at lunch (i bought, so she wasn't going anywhere) and told her my concerns about Ds drinking, and how he is when he is drunk. Now although I've never met him i told her that before any piece of a$$ she needs to think of her kids. I also told her how much i loved and valued her and the children and wanted them there, he was not welcome.
The best thing, she called me yesterday and they are no longer talking.
Again, thanks for all the replies:)
