I never had problems just telling parents, "we would love to come but right now my son isn't handling parties very well, and I think the birthday child will have a better time if we keep him home. Maybe next year. And thanks, again, for thinking of us. It means a lot!"

I know it is a little more complicated when relatives are involved, but parties are for the birthday child, and most people do understand that different children handle them differently.

Mom to an amazing AS son, who recently graduated from the university (plus an also amazing non-AS daughter). Most likely part of the "Broader Autism Phenotype" (some traits).
