I would do the same thing and not allow the relationship to continue. I too am a protective parent, and that's what I would do.

Wow! Yes I would be scared for my little girl! My youngest is 8 and she does spend the night at her friends' homes. I wouldn't even second guess your decision. Sounds like you're doing a great job! Just keep that mom far away! You could always just tell your daughter they can play at school but afterwards just doesn't work anymore. All parents are different and how she runs her family at home, we do not agree with. Hopefully, she understands that. She's a little one, I'm sure she will!

I have to agree with Little Miss. Now if the woman starts harassing you after you have ended the friendship between the girls, then get the restraining order. But before then would be premature. Just keep documenting what your daughter has told you. If the mother contacts you, just tell her you don't think it's a good idea for the girls to play together anymore and leave it at that. Tell her to please not contact you again. Is your daughter in school? If she is, ask the school if they can keep an eye on the situation from there.

Yeah, I would simply choose not to let my kids over there. I would not need an order of protection. And if the child is hitting your child, then yeah no brainer not to let them play together unless under your direct supervision. Once again, a restraining order at this point is a bit over dramatic.

It's not over dramatic when your child comes to you and tell you things like inappropriate questions that another mother ask your kid and then telling your daughter not to tell you because if she does she will never play with her friend anymore. that's not over dramatic I rather be safe than sorry and on top of that when your daughter comes to you and tells you that she drink all the time and having her daughter abuse your kid because she tells her to yeah does not over dramatic.

"if she contacts my anymore im putting a emergency protective order against her. I believe that is a sign of kidnapping or the thought crossed her mind."

um....yeah.....I think this is a bit over dramatic. Sounds to me like a very insecure women who is trying to get your daughter to like her.

I would not let my daughter over to the girls house again, but I would not end the friendship. It is not the kid, it is the mother. I would host every play date instead.

I love my daughters and to see another parent ask my kid thoes questions and then trying to abuse my daughter threw her kid because she got the wrong answer from my daughter is uncalled for. It felt like she was trying to brainwash her and trying to take my child away from me.if she contacts my anymore im putting a emergency protective order against her. I believe that is a sign of kidnapping or the thought crossed her mind.
