Debate over 8 year old failing to invite two classmates to his birthday!?
"Birthday party snub sparks debate

An eight-year-old boy has sparked an unlikely outcry in Sweden after failing to invite two of his classmates to his birthday party.

The boy's school says he has violated the children's rights and has complained to the Swedish Parliament.

The school, in Lund, southern Sweden, argues that if invitations are handed out on school premises then it must ensure there is no discrimination.

The boy's father has lodged a complaint with the parliamentary ombudsman.

He says the two children were left out because one did not invite his son to his own party and he had fallen out with the other one.

The boy handed out his birthday invitations during class-time and when the teacher spotted that two children had not received one the invitations were confiscated.

"My son has taken it pretty hard," the boy's father told the newspaper Sydsvenskan.

"No one has the right to confiscate someone's property in this way, it's like taking someone's post," he added.

A verdict on the matter is likely to be reached in September, in time for the next school year."

Take your dogma and shove it!

Life is not about what happens to you, it's about how you deal with it.

The school my son attended last year in the U.S. has the same rule. This policy is sent home to parents at the beginning of the year. We do not send invites to school. We usually keep the number of children down to 6 and choose those living in our neighborhood, or those who's parents I know well and can call.
