A mother of a five-year-old boy with Down syndrome has shared a heartbreaking video to TiKTok, after only one child showed up to his birthday party.

"The worst day. My heart is broken," the devastated mum captioned the video. "Please raise your littlies to be kind."

"This weekend we had a drive by party for my son who turned five," she explained in the video.

"Do you want to know how many people came? One," she continued. "Normally, this would be bad for any kid, but my son has Down syndrome.

"My son has Down syndrome, and when he didn't realise what was going on, that hurt."


The worst day. My heart is broken. Please raise your littles to be kind.

"But what happens when he knows?" the woman continued through tears. "What happens when he knows that he's purposely being left out?"

The mum ended the video asking users, "why?"

Many people have forced to hold 'drive-by parties' due to coronavirus restrictions for gatherings and events. It involves guests driving past the house sometimes dropping off gifts and well wishes.
