    Personally, I'd suck it up and invite him with an official invite. That's just me though!

    If my child invited them then I'd suck it up and invite them officially.

    Another who would invite.

    Although here is my embarrassing story - DD has a friend who she runs hot and cold with. I don't particularly like the friend very much as she makes my DD cry at school and at home. Cue DD's last birthday party at a play centre with minimum numbers. DD ummed and aahed and finally decided she did want to invite said friend. I reluctantly agreed given we were short on numbers. DD then apparently handed said friend and told her we only invited her to meet minimum numbers - I was so embarrassed when I found out.

    I would invite.... mainly because there is no way I could go to the other mum and uninvite the child.

    How bad is the bullying? Can't be that bad if your DS invited the child? If that is the case (and I know it might not be) I would issue the invite and use it as an opportunity to encourage the kids to learn to get a long.

    I wouldn't worry about inviting him, kids say stuff like that all the time. My girls have been known to tell kids about a non existent party or be invited to non existent parties. My eldest even wrote out invitations for her whole class giving my address and phone number. I had a few parents calling wondering the exact date ummm never lol.

    The bullying is bad enough that the teacher has sat my child down and had a talk about how to handle a bully, and is ensuring they are in different classes next year.This kid has given parent helpers chinese burns in class etc; but my kid believes they need to help this other kid to be a good friend...hence the relationship. My kid is a 'see the good in everyone and be friends with all' type of kid, which even the teacher has explained to mine that this is not a friendship.
    I have never had an issue with a child before, but I think I'm going to uninvite tomorrow. This party is my child's birthday present from us, and I don't want to invite a child that constantly intimidates mine and others.

    They're in infants school....although the child in question is a tall solid kid and stands a good head height above the other kids, so it makes it easy for them to intimidate others.
    Ordinarily I would never uninvite...but even DH is adamant we are not inviting this child to the party so I'm just going to have to have the awkward conversation today.
