- Forum: The Childhood Years
If you really don't want them to play at your house, then send them home. Set rules, send them home when they're hungry or when they are disagreeable. You have to decide what you want and what you can handle. Eventually they may change their minds about coming over all the time. I loved being that house too, and miss it now that we've moved into a less kid-rich neighborhood. My DD was the youngest of the bunch and I wanted to keep an eye on things anyway.
