My daughter is only 2 1/2 so of course she has to have constant supervision. When older children knock on our front door to play it doesn't always work out for me to drop everything so I can supervise another child. When I have to tell the child at the door "no" my daughter starts crying and throwing a fit.
I don't know how to handle this. It's actually only one kid that comes over everyday after he gets out of kindergarten. He knocks on the door for over ten minutes while yelling for me or my daughter. He even looks in through the windows. If I have to leave he wants to know where I'm going and what I'm doing. Last time I went shopping and had one of the bags outside with me and he proceeded to go through all of my purchases.
I don't want to be mean to him in any way. I just don't know how to handle this situation. Perhaps I can make a schedule for him to play with my daughter? Like twice a week for an hour?
I hope I don't sound like a mean person I just don't know what to do.
