There are several neighbor kids that I have over often to play with my preschool aged son. They are all older, 9 years old and up and really seem to crave the attention. They are moving away soon and don't have many toys. My son has lots of toys and I want to teach him to share. the thing is, they said they were moving 2 weeks ago and the date keeps getting moved back. Having them over all the time wasn't so bad knowing it was short term. Now I'm not so sure.
The youngest plays with my son the most, but he can get a little wild and my son had picked up some things from him I don't like. The kids come over almost every day to play. I feel like I need to keep my curtains closed and pretend we're not home to get peace. (and to get a break from cleaning up after the high traffic in my house)
I feel bad for these kids, and my son enjoys playing, but I'd like to know I can come home with out having to deal with them at the end of the day if I don't want to with out having to hide.
