Has anyone throwing a kids party never had a child or children RSVP that they're coming and then not showing up? She would have had to pay for the kid if he went, so she's going to have to just suck it up. Now should the parents of the no show kid found a way to contact her? Absolutely. Send a note, call another parent, whatever. There are ways to get in touch with people. Now if they're decent folks, they should send the gift that their child would have brought if had gone. Then everyone is even and none of the "adults" should be butt hurt over it.A five-year-old was billed for failing to attend a friend's birthday party - resulting in threats of legal action.
Alex Nash, from Cornwall, was invited to the party just before Christmas.
An invoice for £15.95 was sent by his schoolfriend's mother Julie Lawrence, who said Alex's non-attendance left her out of pocket and his parents had her details to tell her he was not going.
Alex's father Derek said he had been told he would be taken to the small claims court for refusing to pay.
