    Hmm, can you put her to work cleaning up while you put your feet up? Suspect she wouldn't come over again after that

    What Ms Mummy said.

    We used to have the 7 year old girl jump the fence and we would just find her in our back yard, annoying our tiny dog by dropping her on her head or something. I cracked it and yelled at her mother.

    Sounds annoying chels! How do you go just sending him home? At least the neighbours girl goes straight back no question. Not even a pout. Sometimes makes me wonder if she's been 'sent' across because she's pretty unfussed about being sent home.

    That's crazy! My son is 5 and I wouldn't let him over the neighbour place unles I knew them as close friends and it was pre-arranged! How does she know you don't have a pedophile partner or enjoy locking children in the basement for hours? (NO OFFENSE! IM SURE YOU'RE/HE ISNT!) Just saying? 5 years old? 5 years old?!! Does she even know shes there and not down the road, around the corner, in the back of a truck on her way to some third world country????? That would be my main problem with it, and thats not even mentioning the fact that you have the complete right to decide whether or not you want to take on another child for the day, this is why even with our closest friends and family these things are pre arranged... I personally hate confrontation, so I understand how you feel, but I would HAVE to talk to the mother about what the hell she is thinking, for both these reasons!

    We used to live across from 3 boys (early to middle primary school age). They would always come over to play with the boy that lived with us. Didn't have an issue with it if he asked permission, and they knew they had to play out the back yard, not inside. These 3 boys then started coming over uninvited, and even walked straight into our house! That's when I said enough is enough. I spoke to their mother and explained that while I don't mind them coming over if invited, I do not appreciate them just turning up and walking into our house. Didn't see them again.

    When we moved into our new place, there was a girl late primary school age living next door. Her and DD1 who is 4 would play through the fence. One day I noticed the girl was in backyard playing with DD. To be honest, it didn't bother me. They were outside, her parents could see her so knew where she was and they were having fun. When she started doing it every day though I drew the line. She asked if DD could go over to her place, which DD thought was great. So I walked them both over to her place and let her mum know that the girl had asked, and I just wanted to make sure it was ok with her first. While I personally don't mind this girl in my yard, I understand that some parents don't like it, so I did what I figure was the polite thing.

    I guess it's up to you and what you feel comfortable doing. If you don't like the child coming over then I would politely mention it to the mother.


    Me + He = DD1 (2007), DD2 (2010) & BellyBaby due August 2012
