"You have already told him to stop. So talk to daughter"
"Yes tell your Daughter as u already told him to stop This is inappropriate"
"If you’ve told him to stop and he continues then tell her"
"Show her the messages and be open with her about it! U have told him to stop now u should tell her to talk to him. Maybe all sit down together and talk this out. But the one thing is u don’t want ur daughter to think anything different from the truth!"
"You need to tell your daughter because if she finds out a different way then she may be done with you."
"Maybe he’s just being nice? You telling him to stop definitely is a red flag that he did not though"
"I would just discuss it with your daughter. If it makes you uncomfortable just tell her. Even if it’s just a “hey * messages me every morning, did you know about that? I feel it’s a little excessive everyday although I appreciate the gesture could you talk to him and just tell him not to do it or do it as often?”"
"Tell her the truth and let her know"
"I mean I can understand if he’s trying to cheer you up by sending messages but not everyday and good morning texts imo are a bit weird. Maybe asking how you are etc. Especially if you told him to stop and hasn’t… I would tell her what’s going on and she can figure it out from there!!"
"When you catch said child, sit them down and explain to him/ her what they’re doing is stealing. Then tell them if they continue said stealing they’re not allowed at your house. Then, you take said child back to their own house and make a big show of walking them to their front door, ring their doorbell, and make them explain to their parent what they were doing. Then you tell said parent your concern and that you don’t want said child in your yard, muchless stealing toys."
