My one and only kid, Justin (8 years old) has play dates almost every week. If it's called a playdate, that means the parents go home, come back and pick up their child later. Just make sure you specify that you are inviting the child over for a playdate. You can always offer to pick the child up or have them ride the bus home with your child. Play dates are lifesavers for only children!

megan i am going through the same thing right now, i agree that schedualing is a good idea but some people just dont get it. im thinking if i get my daughter more involed in some local activities i may be able to establish some new relationships with moms who are looking for the same thing as i am.

When you say whole family, do you mean that she has more than one child that she brings? That may be difficult to separate her from the rest of them. You would probably have to give enough advance notice for her to find something for them to do.
If its other family members that she brings with her, then you can simply ask for a one on one play date for the 2 kids. Plan something age appropriate for just 2 kids, and invite her along.
You didn't give much detail haha

Yes, I just want to invite a friend over for my daughter to play with and not have to entertain her whole family. I don't know how to do that without feeling guilty and rude.
