My friend RSVP'd to my sons party. I told them I have to pay $15 per child so please let me as soon as you can. I also told them to order extra pizza so I counted the adults in for that. They say "no refunds" on the paper I signed.
Her son was bad at school today and she cancelled for the party. I think that is so rude! I bought these nice party favors, paid per child and counted them in on extra pizza. There isn't a better way to punish him. I would never RSVP and not go unless my kids were sick or there was an emergency. I think it's completely rude.
Maybe she doesn't know how much you are spending, but cancellations are the risk you take throwing parties at kid venues. She also knows how to punish her child how it fits her family. Sorry you are out. Maybe you can let your little one invite someone from class whi doesn't have a lot of friends. Space gets filled, nothing goes to waste, , and kiddo gets a good lesson..maybe even new friend.
I would never punish my kids like that. It doesn't just affect THEM! It affects the bday boy or girl too. I would find a MUCH better way of discipling my child! I am with you. It was rude of her to not consider your childs feelings or the fact that you already paid for his way!
