My best friend has a daughter who is about 5 months older than my daughter. They have been "friends" since birth. The problem is that my friend's daughter has become a real little brat. Even my other kids notice it. I'm not crazy about my daughter (turning 7) playing with her because she's just not nice. The other problem is that my daughter is having her birthday party in a few weeks and I feel very obligated to invite this child to her party. I know my friend would be very hurt if they were not included, and I would never want to hurt her feelings. I'm not one to force my kids to be friends with my friends' kids, but this just feels like a different scenario. Any advice or suggestions? To invite or not to invite...that is the question!!!
