A Birthday Party Fiasco: Mom's Dilemma Over a Do-Over 🎂🎉💔

A birthday party that was supposed to be filled with pizza, movies, and fun turned into a nightmare for one 12-year-old girl. The unexpected behavior of a special guest, Molly, led to tears, a ruined movie night, and a sleepover snafu. Now, the birthday girl's mom is considering throwing a second party to make up for the disastrous first one. But her partner disagrees, arguing that it's not right to exclude people who are different and that life isn't always fair. This parenting predicament has sparked quite the debate. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🍿🎈🤔

NTA but Molly's mom's lack of availability and accountability is inexcusable 😡

NTA. Encourage your daughter to keep talking to Molly though. Maybe they can do things in a smaller setting or find some common ground with a craft or other activity versus a birthday party with a larger group or movies that Molly isn't ready for. Your kid totally deserves a do-over though! She handled this with a lot of grace. 👆🏼
