    I actually find this quite sad, if their mother finds her children a pitb is it safe to assume she doesn't really interact with them?
    It feels like this kid is coming to your place as they seem to really enjoy the interaction with you, and maybe seeking that more than anything else.

    I feel sorry for them, not that it makes it right for them to turn up all the time uninvited, so I think setting some time aside would be good for everyone.
    But does your toddler have set nap times? And would this kid know that? I'm just thinking maybe they choose those times, as you're more available?? Just a thought...

    I'd be sending them home and not answering the door if it's not a good time for you

    Isn't school back where you live?

    Next time maybe say to them "I'll ask if *your child's name* wants to play with you outside for a little while" then put a time on it say just for 30 mins or say to your child, in front of them "when you've had enough, you can come back inside and have quiet time"

    Sounds annoying but also a bit sad if they're not comfortable playing at their own house. I actually thought maybe the friend was an only child and was bored or something, it's a bit odd.

    I'd be going to talk to the mother if it was happening that often. I would have no problem telling her that she needs to take care of her own kid and that you can't have him at your house every day. You have a baby to look after, as well as your DS. Any normal person would understand that you don't need an extra kid to look after every day.
    Having said that though, I would probably also try to work out a good time for him to come and play once or twice a week, because I feel sorry for the poor kid

    Are you able to say something to the kids parents? I dunno but maybe something along the lines of " happy for the kids to play but I have a newborn so could we limit playtime at my place for the moment"?

    I wouldn't have the kids up at my place for that amount of time uninvited, I would send them home or make them play outside but only if my kid wanted to otherwise please go home.

    thanks girls, my bub is 18 m old but still needs his naps,
    Ive started saying no at nap time and sending them home when ds and them are fighting, I had hopped me not being so lenient with visiting would make mum get the picture but nope, they were here at 9 am this morning (i sent them home, we were heading out) and again at 11 (sent them home again, its time for toddler to have lunch and go to bed, he was up half the night so desperately ready for a nap today)

    not sure if I say something to mum or just hold out hope for next week when holidays are over lol

    I'd keep sending them home and hope they got the picture although they seem pretty persistent lol.

    Whats the parents deal? I mean, do they just let their kids wander around the street? Apart from the fact that its a pain in the butt for you......if the kids went missing, how would they know?
