    Hmmm ... I don't think so. I suppose it is possible, but I'm pretty sure it's platonic. So sure that I hadn't even considered that as a possibility until now.

    I just had a thought. If it's 'mean' to not invite 1 out of 10 work colleagues to a social function... Would you force a kid to invite his whole class of 10 to his birthday party or would you tell him he only had to invite the kids he was friends with?

    If he was inviting 9 kids out of 10 then I would say the 10th kid needed to be invited. However, in a real life situation my kids are in classes of 20 + and they usually get to pick 6 or 7 friends, so no whole class parties. My kids do not go to a school where whole class parties are the norm, and the kids are all fine with not being invited to a class mates party when they have closer friends. That isn't what is happening here though by the sounds of it.

    In some schools and kindys it's all or nothing. For my 4yo I will be inviting all the kids in her little group. Even the ones I'm not fond of and neither is my dd1

    wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.

    Agree. My sons class has 26 kids. He has invited 8 to his party this weekend. We are discrete handing out invites as not to upset any other kids.

    We have a huge family so if he had to include his whole class he wouldn't be having a party. But I would never allow or encourage him to invite all but one, thats cruel.

    I know some people don't agree with it. But DD has a class of 20 and she invited all of the girls. There were a couple she isn't friends with but it felt so mean not inviting them.

    I don't think I was excusing it?

    Yes. We live in a small town with small classes. It's heartbreaking to watch other children receive an invite and one or two are excluded. We don't roll like that in our family

    It may have been an innocent comment that he made at home. 'Wow, I was impressed with the way Cheese Please handled that call today. Her first day and she really stepped up'. Goodness knows how some people think but yeh, maybe she sees that as a threat. I'm backing you all the way, she's a cow.

    It's great to see all the parents with kids in small classes that would invite all kids ....
