    Default WWYD inviting class friends to play

    My son is having a couple of school friends over on Saturday to play. He's in Prep. I want to invite another friend from his group, but another of the mums said to me the other day that this boy is quite possessive and won't let his best friend (who is coming) play with her son. If that makes sense! They used to be good friends and her son is upset he doesn't get to play with him as much as he used to.

    So I'm not sure what to do. I don't want to exclude anyone especially when the issue is not mine. But it might be nice for the other two boys to play without this boy there. And the mum of the boy who's excluded might prefer it. However my son is friends with them all! Shall I invite them all? That's what my gut is telling me. WWYD?

    I'd invite them all, as you said it's not your issue and the last thing you want is awkwardness with another mum because of a perceived issue.

    I would invite them all. I wouldn't just go by what the other mum says who knows they might all play fabulously together. And if the boy is difficult then next time you might just have a 1-1 play date with him or work something else out.

    Thanks. That's what I felt was the right thing to do, I just really like this mum so didn't want her not to come or something. Or feel unsure. She said her son hasn't made any really strong friendships in the class (now that she says his previous best friend is always playing with this other lad) so wanted to encourage a friendship with my son if possible. Plus the others too of course! Funnily enough my son says he always plays with these other two so they can't be too exclusive. They're only 5 yrs old!!
