My Son has made friends with a neighbor hood family they have four boys 2 with in a year of him 5 and 7 (hes 6) and 2 who are 12 and 13. The mother seems to be very nice but she seems to be a little lax. For instance I dont let my son play or watch violent video games or violence on tv. I don't let my son speak crassly to me or his grandparents or other adults, and i don't let him us certain words such as gay and retarded as insults, She also lets these younger boys swim and jump on thier trampelene which is not leveled with out parentel supervision. Also she does not send him home when i ask her too. I have her to 1) not let him watch these games and movies her older boys have (call of duty, resident evil etc..) 2) to not let him swim or jump unless shes outside or her husband is outside (so far she thinks her 12 and 13 year olds are lifeguards and chaparones) and as far as the language issue i don't know how to approach it, shes british and about 16 years older than me, how do i make this lady understand that i do have problems with these issues with out ruining my boys new found friendships?
