DC1 came in earlier as I was putting dinner on the table asking could she go watch a friend at football.I said no,your dinner is on the table.She got a bit stroppy but went to tell friend.Friends Dad then says to DC that she can just have her dinner when she comes back.
AIBU to think that I said no and this should be respected?Or am I being an eejit. BTW dinnertime is our family time and is somewhat sacred in our house.
I had this recently with a friend's DH - except he told he to ignore telling her to wait because younger DCs were holding me up and run off with his DD so I couldn't see her - she is still very young.
I was fuming. Made sure DD understood she was not allowed to run off. Tried talking to other parents but it never goes in. Next day their DD ran across the road repeatedly encouraged my DCs to do the same which this man thought was funny.
Made sure DD know what I say goes and while other DC have different rules - but she knows what is expect of her.
