I am not sure if I am posting this is the correct place.

I have a bad influence girl in our neighborhood and she doesn't come around much anymore.

I think your plan of damage control in only letting them play outside is a good one. I, too, don't provide snacks for the neighborhood. We tend to live at the house everyone congregates at and at times there are 5 or so girls over here. We simply can't feed them all. I'm happy to provide cups of water and a box of snack crackers. When it's gone, it's gone. At dinnertime everyone leaves.


We have had issues with our daughter asking in front of her friends if they can stay for dinner. The first time it happened I was really caught off guard and said OK. Of course, with O if you say "yes" once, in her mind it's a permanent invitation. She got to the point where it was a habit every dinnertime. Now the rule is dinner invitations can only be extended if they are planned in advance or if mommy (ie, me, the cook)

Thank you so much for your reply.


I should have had the 5yo clean up the toothpaste mess.

I have a six year old DD. She has a friend who is 8/9ish and always comes over and does just about the exact same thing as the dd's with you. I didnt know her parents either. She just started coming over and beging me to come places with us and to sleep over. Finally, I asked to meet her mom and sat down with her. I think her mom is pshyco! She said that I should appreciate that her daughter is nice enough to come over and play with Gabi. I said to her that the little girl is no longer allowed to come over. Now, she goes to my dd's friend and neighbor Madison's house. Her mom is having the same problem! When its the weekend or so and we are leaving to go somewhere early, we will see her mom drop her off in the morning and leave before Madisons mm answers the door. I would talk to their moms. GL

It is so sad when parents do not have time to take care of their children.

I have been in these shoes, too.

OK, we have lived in several different neighborhoods in several different states and most peoples' rules for neighbor kids have been pretty similar.

Honestly, I do not think that the parents care.
