It's my party and I'll snub who I want to, snub who I want to.

My son is seven and in his school here in Georgia you are not allowed to send in birthday invitations with them to hand out.  Makes it a bit of a pain in the ass as you then have to try to get 7 year old to get a phone number or address from the classmate.

Because they want everyone to feel included or???

I don't see how that's not a violation of rights. Where's teh ACLU?

Don't you know that everyone has to be included in all school functions?  Apparently it's some universal law.

A 12 year old girl in Quebec took her dad to court when he grounded her and said she couldn't go on a class trip.

And she won.  Roll Eyes

In 3rd grade, when handing out valentine's cards to the class it turns out I accidentally gave 3 to the pretty girl and none to the fat boy. The teacher made me apologize and make one up by hand for the fat kid. I guess today if that happened today I would be sued.

Stupid kid should have gotten the hint. Who goes to the teacher because they didn't get a card from everyone?  icon_evil

Actually, her mother won. The mother was the parent who had custody rights for the girl, and the dad was refusing to sign a school waiver as part of an attempt to gain leverage over his ex-wife and daughter. The legal action you're linking to was completely legitimate.

At least the school is taking the opportunity to demonstrate how problems are solved in the grown up world.

Of course not.  But I can appreciate how a school for young children has a rule that if you're going to give out party invitations on school property, invite everyone.

So if there is a kid that my son doesn't get along with - why should I let that kid come to a party where the focus is my son's birthday?  What happened to my son's (and parent's) rights?  My son's school has the same rule, but we have now taken the time to invite a small group of kids that my son truly wants to be at his birthday party (yes outside of school).  We tried one year of inviting the entire class, and this one kid who didn't get along with my son wanted to open the presents, wanted to take a piece of cake - because it was sitting there.  The kid's parent did nothing, even after I've their kid repeatedly got told by me and other parents.  Totally a stupid rule.

Yeah it hurts when you don't get invited to a "friend's" party, but so what?!?  The person who's hosting the party is probably not your friend - no matter that he/she says.  So now you know the truth, and they don't like you - why do you want to go to that party?!? icon_evil

I guess what ti comes down to is they dont want some kids to constantly feel ignored and disliked?

God knows, before I hit attractive mode, most of the girls in my grade school used ot have my battle the weird kid and the fat kid for ugly kid of the class awards.

I survived, but maybe they are trying to divert columbine-style stupidity.

Although I think everyone is too fricking sensitive in america.
