    This story has being going around the net for the in the last few days.

    When the original post was shared the mother with the bouncing castle was getting a lot of hassle and abuse of caring people and the girl was offered bouncing castles/etc. She then shared her side of the story but according to some if you've a bouncing castle everybody on the street has to attend.

    We all feel sorry for the girl of course.

    Is her mother/sister correct or a Karen?

    What do make of this?

    Terrible situation for the kids involved, People forget we are still in Covid times.

    Sarah's mother should have been there at the door, and they should have talked like adults about the situation. Its not fair for Kimberly who is now being Bullied for discrimination because she said come back later.

    You cant let every child who knocks on the door come in and have a go on the bouncy castle, there has to be boundaries. Especially in Covid times.

    If Kimberly invited her in, on her own, and something happened to Sarah, who is at fault here?

    Social media really brings the **** of the human race to the surface. A disability is not a carte blanche to go where you like when you like, nor is it something that should be used for clearly untrue point scoring when you don't reveal the full story but post sorry looking pictures on facebook.

    Before I saw the picture I thought the castle was in the front garden (or maybe in a common area) and they weren't letting certain kids (or the one girl) play or whatever.... which is awful behaviour but I still think its too far to "name and shame" them on facebook but I would be pissed too if it was my kid so understandable.

    When I saw that it in their own back garden and it was a birthday party I think the mother is nothing short of a bint. In what crazy world are you obligated to have all the kids from the estate into your house just because your having a party.

    Being a neighbour doesn't mean you're automatically entitled to an invite to any birthday parties.

    IMHO, Kimberley (and every parent) has the right to decide who is invited to their child's party and in this case Kimberley did say the bigger kids would be let in for a go on the bouncy castle later.

    But what Sarah's older sister did, was throw petrol on a bonfire.

    You can guarantee there will be ill will between the families for god knows how long now.

    The kid apparently got offered bouncing castle to have her own party and also apparently a GoFundme was set up but I couldn’t find that.

    I will admit I grew up in the country and you were either invited to a party or not.

    You wouldn’t dream of turning up at somebodies door and asking.

    Fair enough if the kids mother went to the door with her.
