Mum makes six-year-old party guests give toys they created to the birthday girl
‘Another little boy didn’t want to, and friend ripped it out of his hands. I probably should have said something, but I didn’t. The other parents seemed pretty baffled too.
She then goes on to ask people on Reddit if they think it’s normal and to be expected or if she is being entitled.
Most people agreed that it wasn’t very fair and the parents should have been clear from the outset so everyone could explain it to their kids.
One person said: ‘No way the parents didn’t know it was not normal. If they weren’t being underhanded they would’ve made it clear that the bears weren’t going home with the kids from the start, and they wouldn’t have waited until they had all left the store (away from judgemental eyes) to collect all the bears.
‘I’d skip the next birthday party for that kid. Those parents are jerks.’
Another added: ‘MAYBE it would be alright if they had explained ahead of time but I really can’t wrap my head around this one. I’m really curious if they all brought seperate gifts for her as well.’
The original poster clarified that most of the guests had brought gifts for the party as well.
Most people encouraged the poster to have a conversation with the other mum – and later she updated them on what happened.
She explains: ‘This afternoon at school pickup me and another parent had a chance to talk with the mom of the party. It wasn’t a long conversation, but I’ll do my best to re-enact it here. Moms fake name will be Karen.
