Do I have to allow all neighborhood kids in my house if I allow a few?

Am I in the wrong here? My friends have tons of neighborhood kids that ahng out in my front yard…I am normally the house kids are in and out of but recently have started working from home so need a little peace…I have a few select kids that I still allow in my house (more like family, as i know their parents, we hang out together they are very respectful) so i dont mind when they walk in with my kids to hang out, grab a snack or just chill. they are basically my second set of kids…well the neighborhood kids that i do not allow in 24/7 told their mom i was being mean to them and wouldnt let them in my house and blah blah blah…but i feel liek i shouldnt have to always have kids in my house and it is my house so if i dont want you in, i dont have to let you in…but one of the moms texted me and said how unfair it was and that i need to stop treating her child badly…i have never even talked to her child…so i was alittle thrown back…am i wrong here or

Our house was the same. The 2 kids that I allow when ever I used to walk daily with their mom and our boys to and from school so we actually had a friend ship and the boys would have sleep over frequently. Some times I’d go in my basement and there would be like 4-6 kids I have never seen or met, or sometimes I’d have kids in my yard and parents I never seen comming to get them. I’m like okay. No more of this. If you all want to play together you can play at someone else’s house but there is a limit. I have 3 kids of my own, and nearly 10 is too many. 5 or 6 it’s okay. If their parents don’t like it then they can open their doors to everyone as well.

Your house, your rules.

If you only want certain kids in the house that’s your decision. And any parent who tries make an issue of it is the problem.

That’s how kids get babied these days. Life isn’t fair and that’s a lesson that needs be taught at home. Not all kids can be included all the time.

I agree with the above. But it may be a nice gesture to explain to her why other children are allowed inside and her’s is not. You by all means, don’t have to give her a reason but I think it would be a nice gesture to explain that you’re working from home and the couple of kids you do allow in during the hours you work have a complete grasp on the rules and expectations that you have in place. Explaining would help her and the kid understand that they aren’t just being singled out or disliked.

When a kid comes in, ask for their parents number and just text them that your working sometimes and need the quite.

Tell mom to pay your rent if she wants say so over who is in your house :woman_shrugging:t2::woman_shrugging:t2: or host all the loud disrespectful kids at HER house. But that you aren’t being rude by saying some strange child isn’t allowed in your house lol tf :joy::woman_facepalming:t2:

Well it depends lol did your kid leave them outside and tell them they weren’t allowed in?? Lol sometimes it’s the presentation. Like kids are still learning how to effectively communicate. I totally think you are RIGHT but look at it from the parent perspective her kid felt left out. That day were they the only one not let in? Only one of a few? Imagine your kid coming home and feeling like they were singled out. Just ve direct to mom. Apologize if your child came off hurtful then explain you work from home

You are not wrong. If they don’t like it, they should keep track of their own kids instead of using you as a babysitter.

So you shouldn’t feel like you “have to always have…” It’s your house, your rules, kids don’t like it? Too bad, they have a home. I’d tell the mom who texted you about unfair that “life isn’t fair.” If the parents are allowing the kids to run all over without your kids asking if they can, that’s it, no, nope now way…I will say this though…growing up my parents always said they didn’t mind having house full of kids, if they’re at our house they’re not out getting into trouble and she knows where we are. Ours was the gathering house, mostly b/c it was in the middle of where most of us kids lived. If I were you, I would sit down when you’re alone and it’s quiet, write down (after thinking it over) the rules, kids need boundaries, follow through, and then post by front, back, and garage door. Children do not have to get an explanation, this has always been a sore spot with me. Our kids weren’t allowed to ask over and over, why? but why not? (repeat until mom gives in) Not a popular thing with parents and kids alike, but I wasn’t looking to make friends, so if the other parents didn’t like the way our house was, no problem. The only time I would “explain” so to speak, is to an adult. They should understand you work from home and need it quiet. One time, tell them if they ask just the one time. Sometimes you have to be the hardass.

Honestly I hate anyone being in my yard. But I live in a populated area. Whether it’s kids or homeless we are not shocked by this by any means but it’s annoying. You already let them play you don’t need to parent the neighborhood. I was blamed once for being rude to a kid and still don’t know why. Kids lie sometimes unfortunately but no. That mom can go F herself

Not wrong. I don’t let any kids in my house :woman_shrugging:t3:

Ummmm, you text them back and ask which kid is hers!! And you do NOT owe anyone an explanation, but if you so choose I’d simple copy and paste my next paragraph … clears throat
I clearly am unaware of which child is yours, that being said, now my work demands have changed my schedule has changed. In providing for my family’s financial stability I only allow children in my home that I know and have shown the utmost respect while I work. Since your child isn’t well known to me, during my work hours I do not allow random children in my home currently. If you cannot respect this and the fact that who I allow in my home isn’t any of your concern, then that isn’t my issue. I do not speak meanly to children and if setting boundaries is an issue for your child and they deem it being mean, then this is a perfect time to teach them healthy boundaries. And if you think confronting me about my boundaries is going to make me want your child in my home in the future, you are sadly mistaken and very entitled. I do NOT know you like I do the parents of the children I do allow in or you wouldn’t have texted me what you did

You’re not wrong. I’d simply respond back with the fact you are working and cannot have all these people in your house - if they wanna go inside they have a house of their own.

That woman would get a few choice words. No, you do not have to let all of these kids in your house, it’s your house. I’ve sent kids home that I do not know before. I don’t care if their parents get mad, I’m not their babysitter.

Not at all. It’s your house. Sounds like these parents are passing on the entitlement attitude to their children by having it also. I always remind myself “if they aren’t paying your bills they have no say in what happens in your house”. Set some boundaries for yourself and your children and enforce them. Oh and stop letting it bother you. That guilt trip mess is for children.
