Mom asks if she was wrong for excluding son's autistic classmate from birthday party.

The "Am I The A**hole?" forum on Reddit exists to help people navigate the often-murky waters of right vs. wrong. But sometimes things seem pretty black and white.

A mom who excluded a boy with "high-functioning autism" from her son's 10th birthday party—while inviting every other kid in the class—took to the internet to ask if she's an a**hole. She got her a**(hole) handed to her.

The mom writes:

My sons 10th birthday is next saturday and me and my husband have been planned a party for him. To make sure we gave everyone enough time we got invitations ready 2 weeks in advance and I had my son pass them out Friday. We invited every one in his class (he goes to a small private school so there were only 15 kids to invite). Except for one child well call david.

The mom and her husband invited every single child in their son's 15-kid class with the exception of one, "David," who is a "high-functioning autistic child."

Her reasons for excluding this ONE kid from her son's party were: 1) She heard a rumor that David might've had a "meltdown" at another kid's birthday party (what kid hasn't at some point had a meltdown at a birthday party?!) And 2) There are "logistical problems" due to the party taking place in a "loud arcade."

The school my son goes to has a program for special needs kids where they are put into a "normal" class once a week. David is a high functioning autistic child who was put in my sons class to help him socialize and to help the other kids learn to not discriminate against special needs people. From what I know about him and his mother they are just doing their best, and I have nothing against either of them. However, there have been incidents with david before.
