Recently, a child had a birthday party and invited their classmates. It is a custom of the school and classroom to send invitations to each child in the classroom. The mother never heard a response to the party invitations at all after she requested party goers to RSVP before the date. However, the daughter heard that 12 classmates were interested in attending the birthday party. The mother planned for the 12 students to be attending the birthday party. When the birthday party day arrived, no one attended the party, and the daughter was sad. I know it is the holiday season, and people are busy with busy lives. It would be nice if people let the parent know either way about their child attending, and please let your child know not to confirm verbally about going to the party. It could prevent hurt feelings in the future.
