    Default How early is too early for neighbourhood kids to rock up?

    What would you consider a reasonable time in the morning for kids to knock on the front door or call out at the window?

    During holidays, probably 10.

    I tell them 7.30 to give dd time to have a shower, get dressed, have breakfast, make bed, all that morning stuff, but I find myself saying "it's too early, come back at 7.30" for about an hour, sometimes more. We are up at 5, but if dd has breakfast too much before 7 it throws out her day for some reason.

    What sort of parents are letting their kids go knock on neighbors doors at 630 am?!?!?!
