I never said you had or even could prevent every incident, I said her reaction to not even knowing the child was gone is what would concern me.
My step son is the master escape artist and would get out any time he wanted to. No alarm, no lock, no anything could keep him inside, however, if someone had called me and said "hey, J is in the house pissing on my cat and throwing rocks at the dog" my reaction would NOT be to laugh and say "oh, thats just J". I would have been franticly looking for him already and in desperate mode, not just ha ha that is what a 3 year old does.
Oh, and calling CPS does not automatically equate removal, however it could mean it gets these parents into gear to start acting like parents.

Gosh, maybe if you were a little more welcoming of this child, he wouldnt feel the need to thrust himself on you. Maybe if someone, just someone, would welcome this child, make him feel like he's ok, he wouldnt feel the need to do any of this. You have kids, so your home is probably a safe place for children to be. Cant you just let him hang out with your kids, let them romp around? I dunno....relax a little bit. He's 3. (doesnt mean you should tolerate damaged furniture etc, but nowhere in your post did i see your attempt to make this child feel welcome.)
When kids drop over my house, i like it. They can play with my kids.
