    Trying to figure out if the entire class was invited, less two.

    If so, it's pretty bloody insensitive of the birthday-boy's father to allow that to happen....the two kids left out must feel like ****.

    But then, the school's reaction is nuts. A quiet word to the father would be more appropriate.

    Find another way to do it?

    Buggered if I know...don't even know if my assumption is correct, or how many kids in class and how many were invited.

    Fairs fair if the other kid hadn't invited his son to his party then he(the other kid) is just getting a taste of his own medicine, as for the other kid you don't tend to invite kids you don't like to your party

    I agree the quiet word is a better idea than this over reaction

    Oh ***! Give those 2 other kids fake invitations to a fake party. Problem solved.
