To follow-up from my post Why Are Parents So Cruel – the story how a parent didn’t invite my daughter to a party due to her having special needs. Well it seems I am not on my own and this is the upsetting part. After talking to a lot of parents with special angels for what ever reason the consensus seems to be same. These special angles are discriminated against and are left out of these social events too often.
If a parent doesn’t know how to handle the child , please why not just ask the child’s parents if they can attend to help the child. With isolating these children you are not only upsetting them you are discriminating against them and life is tough enough for these angels without adding any unnecessary hurt and upset.
My daughter yesterday was inconsolable because she didn’t go to the party that she knew about. In fact she had a major meltdown and the outcome was she scribbled all over the walls and ran out of the house after spending the day crying.
So next time you are organising a party take a minute and invite that child that has difficulties or that child that is slightly different. At the end of the day they are humans beings and deserve to be treated with respect. You never know you might just make their day instead of ruining it .
