What do you do about invitations your DC don't want to accept?

DD has been persistently invited to a playdate/sleepover that she doesn't want to go to because she has decided she doesn't particularly want to be friends with the girl who has asked her. No big issue or fall out.

She goes to other sleepovers which the other girl knows so I can't use that excuse. What do you do about invitations that your DC don't want to accept? If I make an excuse an alternative date will be offered. Neither DD nor I want to be mean.

it isnt mean to say thanks but she doesnt want to.

but you could always say she is a bit nervous and only comfortable with staying over at a couple of friends ?

no thanks, I don't want to

Why does the thought of telling the truth make me cringe?

' I have asked her, but she doesn't want to. "

If she’s not worried about offending the other girl then I wouldn’t worry about offending the parent. They can’t be best friends with everyone.

You could always just be busy?
