Today we had an early Easter egg hunt with my son and all of his cousins, They had to collect their set egg colours and inside each egg they had either a little toy or a few sweets!

It was my job to stuff the eggs.

My son has autism doesn't eat chocolate or sweets however he has a BIG obession with animals, because of this I decided to only use little toy animals in his eggs and no sweets / chocolate. The cousins however got toys ( Shopkins/ cars etc) and sweets... ( their toys were more expensive than my sons!)

ALL the children were very happy with their eggs HOWEVER the parents weren't. They said it wasn't fair that my son was getting all toys ( they wanted more toys for their kids ) and that my son should have sweets and chocolate to make it fair for their kids ( the children didn't care!)

They said its spoiling my son and giving him what he wants..( he doesn't understand Easter eggs hunts!)
Was I wrong ? Should I of given my son sweets even though he wouldn't touch them?!

Perhaps they can put more toys into the prizes on their egg hunt.

Bunch of twats if you ask me.

Tell them to get a grip. What's the point in a nice treat that involves giving a child something they don't like.

Honestly they sound pathetic

Maybe they want a child with autism too?
Ignore, ignore. Trust me, you will have to deal people making far worse, far more ignorant comments than this.
I.hope your DS had a good day.

Explain to them that when they go to the effort of setting up dan Easter egg hunt they can put what they want in the eggs.
And als that they can deal with the fallout when your ds has a negative reaction when given things that don't work with his autism.
Then get rid of them swiftly because they are behaving like idiots and you don't need that in your life.

Tell them to do their own bloody eggs next time, ungrateful twats.

Oh for goodness sake!! You know they are being ridiculous don't you?

Ignore them and go and play with your son and his animals!! (With a glass of wine if you have one and give the other adults some squash!)

Oh, yeah, it's so unfair how disabled people get all that good stuff. I mean, they get disabled spaces, when the rest of us have to park in normal spaces. They get extra time in exams. They get scribes and one to one TAs at school. They get wheelchairs! (I wanna wheelchair. sad)

It just not fair! angry

Ignore ignore ignore! The kids are happy and it's the kids that matter! FFS if I was them Id be greatful for you setting it up even if my DS got no toys as long as everyone got something and there was no obvious major difference in money spent per child! (And it sounds like you were very fair on this by making the toys for the other children more expensive ones.)

How vile of them if they can't see that fair doesn't equal the same. I'm sorry you were made to feel bad about a lovely activity, OP flowers

What a bunch of entitled knows! Who the fuck goes to someone else's house who's organised a lovely easter eggs hunt (which sounds like you've put lots of effort and thought into for each child,) and then complain!? Your not spoiling your child at all! I do hope you pointed out that theiram children's eggs actually cost more and that your child doesn't like sweets or chocolate!
Dude Im angry on your behalf.

The parents sound like small children

They are bastards

Sounds like a very thoughtful thing to do...

My ds won a prize at school raffle today..He could pick anything... He did not pick the biggest prize.. he picked some mini eggs so I can hide them for him...

My point been it isn't about cost or equality..You have clearly thought about what other children would like..

Ask them if next time they would like you to put something in their childrens eggs they don't like to make it fair... Although I don't think I would bother again.
