"I would be so confused if my child invited one kid to their party and all of that kid’s siblings showed up."

@tracylandi430 said:

"No. I don’t think so. It’s a special time for “that child” to enjoy. It’s also a lesson to be learned. I don’t think that everyone should get a trophy either."

@shiplap_and_marble commented:

"Team whole family. I always RSVP if we are going and ask, but if we throw parties everyone is invited."

@nadineolia said:

"I’m team only who got invited though."
