    Wow! Talk about obnoxious parents… the way I see it this poor boy will grow up to become a little brat that nobody can stand.

      You are right about brooding a brat that no one can stand but even though “we” is used I still get the impression reading the letter the mom is the one demanding what gifts to purchase. It’s difficult to say if the dad is on board with these demands.

      I mostly just feel sorry for the kid. Seriously, they are going to grow up with such a warped view of their entitlement to having everyone bend over backwards to their needs. It’s a birthday party, not your family swearing fealty to your kid. I have a son who has a severe allergy to artificial food dyes, which is a tricky thing to avoid if you don’t know what you’re looking for. If someone gets him something he can’t have, he politely accepts it and then later on gives it to someone who CAN have it. I’m not going to send out emails to everyone he knows about what will be accepted at the birthday party and what will be thrown away, as per his allergy and my aesthetic, because I’m not the worst. What happened to teaching your kid to be polite and then give what they don’t like that much to a friend, or a charity shop? Of course we wouldn’t want our children to learn graciousness and good manners.

    I once invited a couple and their 7 year old for dinner. I received a detailed list of what the child would eat. Not a list like “pasta, cheese, pizza,” but a list that included brand names, types of cheese, and the SHAPE THE CHEESE SHOULD BE CUT INTO. I tried to follow the list & thought I was golden, but was greeted by wails because the pasta was the wrong shape.
    Do I need to mention that I have never invited them over again??

      As a parent of a child on the autism spectrum, it sounds to me like your invitees’ child is there also. It is not at all uncommon for kids on the spectrum to have very strong food preferences. My own kid was like that, too, for a time. By 7 he had grown out of it – but long before that we had learned to avoid the tantrums in the first place.
      Were I in the invitee’s position, I would explain this to my host/ess, and would bring something appropriate in the event my son wasn’t okay with what was being served. Of course, most of our friends already understood the situation, and arrangements were made beforehand.
      BTW, my son is now 25, and has learned how to be a good guest and deal with food likes/dislikes. Our friends and family are still very solicitous of him, but perhaps that was because we tried to avoid being douche-y about it when he was small.

      Labdude, that’s a good point, but the child in question is neurotypical. Had it been a question of autism spectrum or a medical issue, I wouldn’t have batted an eye at the list of acceptable foodstuffs.

      Dwasifar: all I can say is of all the phrases I would expect a 7 year old to say, “But I don’t like cellentani!” is not the first thing to spring to mind.

      Honestly, if the kid does have an issue with food that severe, you don’t demand the host supply it – you bring your own food, and be gracious.

    • #6.11   Poltergeist

      Even if the kid was autistic, that’s still not an excuse. You don’t expect a person who is inviting you over for dinner for the first time to cater to your child’s very specific food preferences. You either feed your kid beforehand, bring something for them to eat while you’re there, or find a babysitter. My cousin has autism and that is exactly what my aunt and uncle did whenever they went somewhere. They weren’t about to demand that every birthday party they got invited to provide Wendy’s chicken tenders with the breading peeled off, plain overcooked spaghetti, and yellow cupcakes with blue frosting only.

      If the child has issues – autism, allergies, doctor’s instructions…then the it is the parent’s duty to bring appropriate food for their child to eat – not make demands on the hosts.

      You can say ‘please, X is allergic to peanuts so could you not have any peanuts’. But if X is allergic to gluten, then you bring your own gluten-free meal.

      Same goes for cheese-as-Darth-Vader or whatever other outlandish demand.

      I have a friend with a medical condition (totally legit, not something she cooked up) that limits her diet rather severely. It’s fairly easy for me to cook around, so when I invite her over, I always make sure there’s plenty she can eat. Her response is to be GRATEFUL and tell me repeatedly I don’t have to accommodate her. Not pout in a corner because I also made 2 dishes she can’t have, or added some spices/additions to the other plates she can’t have, but wants (seriously, if she *could* eat anything and everything, she *would*).

      Also, I feel bad for that kid. I can’t with parents who enable their kids to be picky to the extreme. I get that you don’t like some foods – that’s okay, I’m 24 and I don’t like some foods. But you need to teach your kid to be gracious and willing to try new things, or they will be an obnoxious adult and also miserable. At the age of seven, no kid (save maybe a severely autistic or otherwise mentally disabled one) should be allowed to dictate exactly what they want to eat at every meal and what fucking shape to make the food.

    How are they spending $80 on formula a week? Here in the UK, a 900g/2lb tin of the stuff costs about £10 (US$15) and should last roughly a week for a 6-month-old. Does formula mean something else in the US? Is it massively more expensive? Are those Hong Kong dollars? Do they have five infant children? WHAT’S GOING ON?

      @kermit: a quick look at suggests that baby formula is one of the few things that is more expensive in the US than in the UK (approx. 50%-100% so).

      @Kelly O.: sells 6-packs of 14oz cans of Elecare for ~$220, which would more or less fit the $80/week figure.

      Of course her precious angel is on special formula. And when he gets older he will eat only organic food and be put on a gluten-free diet. He’ll ride in a car seat until at least ten years old and will never be allowed to ride a bike unless he is helmeted and wrapped in protective foam. Even then the pavement will need to have padding. He’ll have a medical file as thick as a dictionary. Everything he ever touches will be sanitized so that no bacteria will come in contact with him. And no school bus for him. He will be dropped off and picked up from school in his non-personalized clothing.

      I was mildly allergic to chocolate and peanuts as a child (like, I could have a little, but more than about 10 peanut M&Ms were going to be problematic). I outgrew it by around 10. I wasn’t allergic to cats, but developed an allergy to them around 12 and still have that allergy (a couple multiples away from 12). Allergies change throughout one’s life, in some cases.

      pooham: you need to realize all the things you just bitched about are now laws parents HAVE to follow. Kids are not allowed out of car seats until they are 4’9 and 100 pounds which puts most kids middle school age till they get out of boosters. Its a law and they will ticket you over it. Same for helmets for kids on bikes. Another thing that will get you in trouble with the cops.

      This is not your childhood, things have changed as far as laws.

      I had a child on Neosure formula because he was a low birth weight preemie. Actually both of my twins were on it for awhile one just got off it a lot sooner than the other. It was so expensive. Twice as expensive as regular formula. I would get free samples from the doctor’s office if they had any to help. It about bankrupted us. I thought I was going to exclusively breast feed. LOL nope. Not only did that not work but we had to buy the pricey formula.

      I get the sarcasm, but addressing a small child by name is a great way for a stranger to build trust.
      “Hey Brayden, your mom told me to pick you up…”
      Kids don’t always make the connection.
      Even adults fall victim to this kind of social engineering – which is why many companies involved in sensitive industries now discourage wearing employee badges openly when off company property.
      “Hey Logan, you might not remember me, but we met at the industry convention… can I ask how your research is going?” is a surprisingly effective opening tactic.

      Except stranger kidnappings are VERY VERY rare. It’s usually done by a family member in custody issues! Just calling your child’s name in public makes it known. So no, this isn’t a reason.

      Which I guess means Braydens and Declans get snatched more often than Davids and Timothys because their names aren’t as common.

      @labdude…I once had a job where my department fought to get an exemption from nametag/name posting requirements (and then just willfully disobeyed the order that we do) because we had so many creepers come into our fairly isolated area of the building.

      We’d tell new staff: “Don’t tell anyone anything beyond your first name, and only if you have to. Don’t tell them where you live, where you go to school or other jobs, or give them any personal contact info. Don’t tell anyone your work schedule, even in passing.” etc., etc.

      I agree on the stupidity of name tags.

      First of all, anybody who wears a name tag as part of their job (innocuous) job never actually gets called by their name anyway. Do you call your cashier or your pharmacist by their name? Probably not.

      Second of all, it’s a little humiliating to go around with that label attached prominently on display. You’re not a senile dingbat who forgets their own name and therefore needs people to know who you are without you having to tell them.

      I personally just turn my access around so that no identifying information is visible when I’m out for a coffee run or something. If you need to know who I am, you’ll just ask and vice versa, for heaven’s sake.

      @kermit – I wish. WISH. That people didn’t call their cashier or pharmacist by their names on their name tags. But speaking as someone who occasionally has to fill the former role, and has to wear a name tag, THEY DO.
      Every time they say something like “How’s it going , Matt!” I want to reply, “Great, person with whom I have no connection besides commerce! Because I don’t know YOUR name, and honestly long for the day when a robot will permanently take this portion of the transactional experience away from humans so I never have to talk to you again!” I hate it so much.

      Let’s not confuse ‘name tags’ with ‘ID badges’.
      Name tags are for retail workers and waitresses.
      ID badges are for letting folks who may or may not have guns under their jackets know that you are who you say you are and that it is okay for you to be there.

      I’m not sure if that’s a good idea. When I was 4 years old, I got invited to a lot of cool birthday parties. What did my parents do for my birthday? I got to go to McDonald’s with one friend, and my present was the toy in the happy meal. Over 2 decades later and I still remember that crap.

      My parents both have good jobs, they’re just cheap bastards. To this day, I’m a socially awkward loser, and I can’t help but wonder if it’s partially because my parents did stuff like this all the time to discourage me from actually socializing with kids my age.

    I think one way to get around having names on clothes that a kidnapper can say to the kid is to embroider a name like Fuck Face or Shit Head on clothing. That way when the kidnapper says to little Johnny ‘hey Fuck Face or hey Shit Head your mum asked me to pick you up’ the kid will know to kick the kidnapper in the balls and run.

    We have a big extended family, and the kids’ birthday parties always ended in an embarrassingly big pile of presents. There was no way the kids could ever really appreciate them all, so we gave quite a few new toys to the local shelter when they were little. I always wanted to find a polite way to tell everyone that gifts weren’t needed, but was always afraid of hurting someone’s feelings so I just let things continue as they were.

      Miss Manners, judging from her writings on Washington Post, does not approve of the whole “no gifts” on an invite – and she seems to hate registries and wish lists too. She says both are rude and greedy. You’re also never suppose to ask for donations to a charity instead either. Especially since your guests might not support your favorite charity.

      Me, I’m all for making a wish list. Cause otherwise people insist on buying me things I hate like JJA’s Star Wreck, Leo DiCRAPrio movies, and Taylor Swift CDs. Blech. Just buy me fishing gear at the very least and none of that shit.

      From the other side, I don’t demand people buy off my wishlist, but I really, really wish they would if they want to give me something. I’ve received a lot of 1)things that don’t even vaguely interest me and/or I can’t use (I don’t think my aunt understands region coding on DVDs) 2)clothes that aren’t even remotely my size and 3)duplicates of things I already own.

      I’m sure etiquette experts have varying opinions of “no gifts” or charity suggestions, but I believe Dear Abby has said they’re okay (but enclose them on a card separate from the invitation…same envelope, separate card). Personally, I breathe a sigh of relief when I see those few sweet words, and I’m sure the parents I know whose homes are overflowing with kid junk are relieved when people adhere to the request.

      I can’t abide wish lists (unless I ask, which is “pulling” the information rather than “pushing”) and registry info on an invite makes me grind my teeth. Okay to have the registry, not okay to push it on me. However, I’m perfectly okay with “no gifts”. That takes an onus off the guest, wish lists and registries put one on.

      If you get gifts that aren’t to your taste, you politely thank the gift giver and consider regifting, returning, exchanging, or donating without a word to the person who gave it. And that’s the end of it.

      Going back to this cause I’d rather read comments here than the Booger Flicker’s post –

      There’s people though whom no matter how many times you drop big hints or even flat out say “I don’t like this” before they buy a gift who’ll still, repeatedly, try to force you to like what they like without any consideration. Just the other day over on the Washington Post I read a letter from a woman who’s mother insisted on constantly buying the LW’s daughter expensive clothing, purses, knick-knacks, etc even though the granddaughter would much rather have money for music lessons, go to chess or space camp, etc. And when the LW says anything the grandmother goes “It’s MY money and I’ll buy what I like for her. It’s more fun!” Just constantly disregards what’s needed/wanted to try and force the granddaughter to conform to what grandma likes.

      And I’ve said before how I have that same problem. It doesn’t matter how much I say I HATE the new “Star Wreck” with a burning passion, how I can’t stand Leo DiCRAPrio’s “acting,” how I find Bennedict Cumberbatch completely unwatchable, etc. Nope, someone just HAS to buy me something like that and try to force me to like it.

      So yeah, wish lists. If you even think about getting me something, I’m giving you one. Either stick to it or don’t buy me diddly squat. People who don’t like wish lists and think they’re rude, go suck a rotten egg.

      So I Googled this, out of curiosity. Most of the results were to this letter, which has gone viral. Most of the other links were to parenting blogs saying not to put your kids in clothes with their names as that increases the ease of abduction (no one saying “#1 cause of abduction”).

      One legitimate law enforcement link came up, which encouraged parents to make sure their kids were aware that just because someone knew their name didn’t mean they were a “trusted adult.” That site said that a potential abductor might learn the child’s name by observing “their name on their clothing, someone saying their name in a public place, by good guesswork (trying common names), or by other means.” It suggested teaching your kids not to go with anyone they didn’t know personally, even if that person knew their name. Now, that sounds sane.

      Yeah, it’s sane in a world where kids listen to everything that their parents tell them, which is clearly not the case.

      It’s one thing to sew the kid’s name inside their clothing for when they’re away at camp, because that makes it easier for them to not lose their clothes with other kids who may have the same ones.

      It’s quite another to have the kid’s name prominently displayed on their clothing. It’s not only a safety issue but I find it kinda tacky (as is any clothing that prominently displays brand name logos). No person’s body should be a billboard – for a name brand or for their own name, either.

      Okay, I kind of agree that personalized clothing is dumb, but read that list of ways someone might learn a kid’s name more carefully. Which is more likely: (a) abductor gets close enough to little Schnowflaykee to see that she has “Schnowflaykee” monogramed in 1″ letters on her shirt, or (b) hangs around pretending to read a book and overhears “Preschiouslee” say “hey, Schnowflaykee, think fast” before poking her in the eye.

      Plus, parents are extremely vigilant these days, to excess. Last summer, I took my dog out for a walk on a hot day, and while the walk wasn’t long (less than a mile), he was HURTING when we got close to home. Even though the park on the corner prohibits dogs, I ventured in and said to a couple of parents “I’m so sorry, I know I’m not supposed to bring him in here, but he needs a drink and a soaking to cool down. Would you mind if I gave him a drink from the fountain and sprayed him down so we can get home safe? He likes kids and won’t bother anyone.” The parents I addressed were very nice and welcoming and saw that my dog needed that water and cool-down.

      I turned on the lower spigot on the fountain and cupped my hand below it so he could have a drink, and then sprayed the water on him. After 2 minutes in the park, he perked up, and we went home.

      The next day, I walked by the same park, and someone had posted a half-dozen “no dogs” signs, PLUS signs that said adults without children were only allowed in the park after 6 PM (despite the park hosting many adult things like community gardens, a mini-library, and picnic areas that can be reserved by local residents). I talked to a couple parents, and they said that one of the parents felt I was trying to “lure” their children by bringing my dog into the park, so they posted the signs. Those parents knew I was doing nothing of the sort, but they were powerless to prevent the over-reaction.

      Seriously, I don’t want your kid. I have a dog and no kids because I hate kids. Abducting a kid is the last thing I would ever think of doing. If all adults without children in tow are “scary,” you need a shrink…

      I can’t remember if it was allergy to the bedding, or diapers, or what, but seriously. Allergic to everything. It wasn’t until she was around 2 that she got to come home for the majority of the time.

      actually as a food allergy mom, unfortunately not all brands or off brands are safe. I know which brands are safe and which are not and we have to buy accordingly. But if they don’t have a food allergy than they really have no reason then besides maybe having a very picky kid that will only eat certain brands. Which I have an autistic kid too so I deal with that some too. Yay for my special needs kids!

      Anyway, I try to donate allergy safe food to the food bank every so often. I donated a bunch of jars of wowbutter which is a peanut butter substitute and told them to keep it on hand in case any allergy families came and needed it. Since pb is a big staple at the food bank but that sure screws a family hard up for food with a peanut allergy. We would be in trouble if we ever needed food bank food because probably half of it would kill my son.

      And for the expensive formula- there is prescription formulas or ones like neosure which is higher calorie than regular formula. It is for preemies and low birth weight babies to get them growing faster. And it is twice as expensive as regular formula. There are also formulas for allergic babies or babies with severe colic or gastro issues.

      So don’t automatically assume they are trying to be special snowflakes if they can’t use plain old similac. There may be a medical reason.

I already dropped a couple bills on a plane ticket to get here (I certainly don’t attend every one every year, but I do make my trips “home” around those numerous birthday parties, so I hit a couple), I’m not dropping the same amount on some *very specific* expensive gift. And I’m not paying eleventy billion dollars to ship something large and fragile if this is not the year for me to attend that particular birthday party. My budget for little kid gifts never exceeds $50, unless it’s something very necessary and long-lasting like a high chair, booster car seat (buying one of these for a family member this year), or their first big-kid bed (and that’s for family only).

      see that is fine what you did. Manners pretty much say if someone asks for suggestions, you can send a list or give suggestions. But they have to ASK first. Meaning don’t send out rude letters like this.

    I take it this is their first child.

    The kidnapping line is hilarious.

    I love the line about restricting it to “direct” relatives, meaning those who can be guilted into buying a gift. F*** that! I wouldn’t care if this mother was my twin sister, if I got a note like this (and *before* the invite, to boot), they wouldn’t get a thing from me. Too bad for the kid, who’s too young to understand that he has douche parents.

    Aside from anything else, they’re also denying their son the chance to get really unique, special gifts that the gift-giver has put a lot of thought into, maybe even handmade gifts. A knitted jacket from Grandma is worth a lot more than mass-produced junk from Walmart or Ikea.

    Only thing these gauche idiots would be getting from me is a big ol’ NO response once the invitation arrived.

    Being told what to bring to a party rankles me, this is like that to the power of a million. I don’t know the parents, I don’t know the kid and this STILL made my blood boil.

    I think a birthday card with twenty bucks in it and have done with it. My son’s grandparents would send over the Christmas catalog and tell him to mark which things he wanted, and would choose from that list, plus some surprises. We (I) never told anyone what to get him for birthdays or Christmas. My sister, on the other hand, wanted to tell us what to get her kids, name brand and all, because it just had to be the right brand.

    He was not a spoiled brat about food, either. He learned as a toddler to eat lots of things, and like them. When he was almost up from his nap, I would put little dishes with a spoonful of different fruits and vegetables on the coffee table, and he would try everything. He is twenty-two, now, and a very nice young man.

    Dear [redacted],
    In spite of your request for no books, I am sending a book – ‘How to Divorce Your Parents’. Your unfortunate son will no doubt get a lot of use out of it in the coming years.

    They forgot to add the link to their kid’s Formula Crowdsourcing Facebook page.

    This has got to go on the Top Ten Douchebags of 2015 list. Their family should start giving them “we made a donation in your kid’s name to charity” gifts.

    Even though they’ve gone about it in a completely douchebag way, I can sympathize somewhat with the parents. People can go completely overboard with gifts for small kids and too frequently it’s stuff that winds up being clutter. Having to tell our family members we donated many of her gifts to charity because we just plain don’t have space led to very hurt feelings.

      Telling them they went to charity only after the giver came over and asked to actually see the gifts being used, of course.

    I don’t understand an entire concept of giving a one-yr-old a birthday party. Mom, dad, siblings, a close aunty and/or granny — yes, sure, why not. But a real party with invitations? Huh?

    Anyway, I don’t think this mom will have much problem with the guests — there won’t be any.

    If formula’s costing so much, why not ask for that instead?
