    Default childs ' friend' inviting themself down to visit and a wwyd?

    if your child has a friend come down uninvited do you make your child play with them?
    my ds has a friend who has come down several times during his brothers nap (which is the only time my ds has ipod / xbox etc) and im not sure wether I should say 'no the baby is sleeping'. force ds to stop the technology play and play with the other child or let the other child sit and bug me because theyre bored :/

    so wwyd?

    Tell them to go home. If they turn up frequently maybe make one time a week that they are allowed to come over?

    thanks I wasnt sure lol I feel rude saying sorry he's playing his ipod but I also feel rude letting ds sit there playing it ignoring his friend,
    Friend comes in knowing ds is playing the ipod then sits there 'ds do you wanna play?' every 30 seconds til Im like

    normally he is playing but when the bub sleeps he enjoys his technology time lol

    I'd just say "DS is having some quiet time right now, if you want to come for a play you could come (insert convenient time/day)"

    I would suggest perhaps another time/day for a play that suits your and your ds routine.

    On the other hand perhaps the poor kid just likes your household better than his own...
