My kid is spamming my Facebook friends with Dragon City invites. Help!

My 9 year old loves Dragon City. I de-authorized the FB app to post on my behalf through Facebook settings, but it's still very easy to send invitations to all Facebook friends through the Dragon City app (which my son usually plays on my iPad). As far as I understand, there's no way to play Dragon City without linking it to a Facebook account. Is there anyway to turn off the ability to invite Facebook friends?

I've looked at Facebook and the Dragon City apps settings, and I just don't see a way to do this. My 11 year set up his own pseudonymous Facebook account just for Dragon City, but I don't think I want to do that for my 9 year old. My friends' kids also play Dragon City, so I sometimes get invites from them that I suspect are accidental.
I have suggested my friends block the app, but of course not everyone knows how to do that or wants to deal with it. (Though that's been my preferred way of dealing with Candy Crush, etc.)
I know the big picture solution is for my 9 year old to stop sending invites -- or for me not to let him play Dragon City -- but I'd love to know if there's a software or settings solution, rather than relying on user behavior (and it may be that Dragon City incentivizes inviting people).
