I'm really disappointed my sons birthday party is this weekend it's not going to be anything elaborate but we have a pool and he invited some kids and they said they'd come (5 in total).
Well yesterday he called one girl to make sure she was coming and she said oh sorry going out that day, she was the first one to say yes and he went to her party in June. I'm sorry but when someone gives their word they should stand behind it after all what do you have if you don't have that???????? Now the others are thinking about it and said they'll get back to them, now he just asked them about a week and a half ago it's not like this was months ago that he spoke with all of them and they said yes just about 2 weeks ago.
I WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AFRAID OF THIS HAPPENING, because it seems like he just can't find that one true friend and he was soooooooooo excited about everyone saying yes and I said to him don't get to excited now I don't want you to be disappointed if they don't come and now it looks like MAYBE 1 might but even he's not a definite yes now as he was almost 2 weeks ago.
I'm not sure if hearing that last night stressed me out to the point where I was so sick with my fibro but WOW I look like crap and feel like it still but last night was a nightmare, I just hate seeing my son made a fool of as he has gone through so much in his young life with bullying, him having lyme , him dealing with me having lyme/fibro, us not having a lot, I just want him to be happy and have at least one friend at his party. It's going to be only a small one cause we don't have a lot of family and some can't come......
I try to teach my son about your word being everything , that when you make a promise you keep it, I saw how disappointed he was last night , it felt like someone knifed me in my heart seeing that.
I don't think other parents are teaching their kids good manners and the importance of giving their word and it just p#$$es me off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have had that problem with both of my kids' birthday parties. People saying that they would come and then not show up!

    Expecting adult behavior from these kids is probably unreasonable. They are teenagers. Nothing stays the same from one moment to the next. Hormones drag their emotions all over the place. What made them laugh ten minutes ago can have them crying 10 minutes later. So, given that these folks are more acquaintances than friends, I'm not really surprised, Fenway. Going out with friends will win over going to the house of an acquaintance. (Sadly, the people who were invited may be part of the pack making fun of him behind his back.). Also, our old time manners aren't taught to or followed by new generations, so going to another person's party does not obligate the person to come to yours.

    My daughter was horribly bullied and tricked by false friends into embarrassing herself even more. So, I encouraged inviting one person and planned a movie date with cake at home afterwards. Perhaps this is an opportunity for your son to enjoy his day, too.

    I'm sorry your son is so isolated. I hope once he gets away from this school and starts a new life in a new environment he will blossom into the person you see hiding inside him.

    I'm so sorry this is happening to your son! That is so rotten I swear there is no such thing as good manners these days people can be so inconsiderate! Back in my day if we made a commitment you kept it there is no way my parents would have let me back out after giving my word I would be there.

    I will keep a good thought for you and really hope some of these kids show up.
