The fact that he had run out into a car park (dangerous) and it was up to you to coax him back in makes me actually feel a bit sorry for him. A 3 year old had left the premises alone and his family didn't even notice
His behaviour is a reflection of a lack of supervision. He most likely gets away with being rough at playgrounds all the time as his parents aren't correcting him for it.
I definitely would have let the parents know about the car park incident - that could have ended very badly had you not been there.
X's parents may find him/her a handful and may have purposely faded into the background to avoid conflict with x??? I know parents who would much rather let others sort out their child's issues- so not fair on the ones doing so.
It really annoys me when we invite a child to my son's parties and parents bring the sibling(s) too - other than babies of course.
Parties these days aren't cheap - the average I pay is $30 per head, and then add to that party bags, etc, it adds up. I have no problem paying that amount for the family and friends who WE choose to have there, but I'm not happy about having to fork out for siblings who my son isn't friends with. Also, it can really alter the dynamics of a party when uninvited younger or older siblings are present.
There's a family from kinder who choose to take their older daughters (8 & 10) along to every party that their son is invited to. They then expect that the girls can sit at the party table with all the invited kids and partake of the food, cake etc. In my opinion, it's just so rude and shows a total lack of etiquette and manners.
Its not ideal when they bring siblings but I still invite them as I know some parents have no other option for babysitters so I'd prefer at least an extra couple of kids than DS actual friend missing out on coming at all - however if the sibling caused trouble I wouldn't invite them again the next year
I don't mind siblings coming... Actually I encourage it - but what I find really wrong in this instance is the lack of supervision. It shouldn't be up to the host to babysit younger siblings ...
