It breaks my heart to hear all the posts of children who get hurt due to no shows at their birthdays. I have a feeling I am about to witness it myself with my grandson. Birthdays to this point has been only with family, friends and their kids but not school. I did hear a few parents say, “I hope you don’t have bowdee in your class next year.” I cried. My grandson has not been diagnosed but as a CSW I feel he has Social Communication Disorder, as well as his mom.
I would invite the base ball team and only people you know will be there. This will prevent broken hearts. I do remember though, the bigger deal I make about things the bigger he does… like someone said, if no one comes make it super special for him and do whatever he wants. Poor love, kindness, laughter all over him from the people who love him most.
