AIBU to want to want to uninvite daughters cousins from her 5th birthday party as they have nits - yet again!?!

Daughter has her birthday party this weekend and I've invited her cousins. Just learnt that one of them has nits. This isn't the first time and I know anyone can get them from school etc. Even get letters from our school about it.
But these kids always have them and tbh parenting skills are non existent. Mother is only ever bothered about herself and I know she tries but...

Seriously in two minds about it!

Tell her they can't come unless it's cleared as you will not allow yourself to be blamed when there's an outbreak in her school

It's not the child's fault so YABU.

Absolutely needs to be treated before the party. All of the children and the parents need to be treated, not just the 1 child.

You could offer to have the child come early and do a comb through and then tie her hair in French plaits.

Oh please, it's just nits, everyone gets them and some people are more prone to them due to their blood type. Don't uninvite a child relative over nits!

YABU it's not the children's fault so why should they be punished? Ask the mother to treat / tie up hair.

...or the father

Pop olive oil on your own DDS or DS hair as it prevents nits

Surely they can treat them today? Will be fine for the party.
