Should I stop the friendship?

DAD - posted on 08/04/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




Our next door neighbor has a only child who is a 7 yo boy, we have 2 boys 6, and 8. Our neighbor always wants our kids to go play with there child because he gets board, but then she complains about how loud all the kids are together, or how they all didn't want to play the same game.

I guess my question is why would you invite them over if your gonna complain about 3 small children playing? Its not like I called there house and asked for them to watch my kids, and when I do have there kid over I don't complain about it, I let them no the rules and rarely have to tell them twice.

It might not be a bad idea when she calls the next time to say: we really appreciate you having the boys over to play and we hsve rncouraged th to keep their voices down. However if they get too loud please send them home. If her behavior continues you might say it might be a good idea for the boys to wait until its cooler and they can play outside where the noise level won t be a problem.
