Do you think it's a good idea to invite your friends' children to parties for your child regardless of how your child feels about those children?

I never did that (ds is 19), nor did my parents. It's that child's day (I'm assuming birthday party?); let them have who they want. That also was an advantage to a summer birthday, he got to invite who he wanted without having to disappoint anyone.

See, that's what I think too.

But odds are those kids are together at school or outside activities too, if nothing else, like with family if the adult friends are close. I still don't see the need when it's their special day - that should be their choice, IMHO.
