I regularly have a couple of kids from street playing in my garden, just say hello to parents, don't know them well at all. One child needs a wee aibu to send her home? Don't feel right letting her use toilet given she is 7, I think. Husband is not at home but still it doesn't sit right

What exactly are you worried about?

MrsMeeseeks Mon 03-Apr-17 16:36:16

What are you worried will happen?

Euphemia Mon 03-Apr-17 16:36:23

That seems daft to me. Ask the parents if you're uncomfortable?

Lilmisskittykat Mon 03-Apr-17 16:36:39

She's just a small child... knowing them they leave it until desperate to ask as too busy playing.

I wouldn't see the worry personally

If you have given her permission to play at yours then she should be able to use the toilet.

What, out of interest, do you think could possibly happen if you let a 7yo girl in to use the loo?

Is she armed and dangerous? Does she bite? Or is she some kind of martial arts expert?

She needs a wee...

Eh?

RestlessTraveller Mon 03-Apr-17 16:37:55

Why wouldn't you?

I don't think anything will go wrong if she uses your toilet.

Is it more about making sure her parents don't abdicate all responsibility for the day?

what????!!!

badabing36 Mon 03-Apr-17 16:38:52

What?

MatildaTheCat Mon 03-Apr-17 16:39:10

What difference does dh being at home make?

Let's hope you never need a favour or a parcel taken in. Being on good terms with your neighbour's is generally considered a sensible approach to life.

Let the girl go to the toilet

How very peculiar! What, exactly, do you think is 'not right' about a 7 year old using your toilet?

Whattodo23 Mon 03-Apr-17 16:40:41

Just in case she said something inappropriate happened while she has a wee?

Batteriesallgone Mon 03-Apr-17 16:40:42

If you don't know them well enough to have them in the house don't let them play in your garden. Why are they playing in your garden anyway?

TitaniasCloset Mon 03-Apr-17 16:41:10

But why don't you want her to use the Loos op? confused

PovertyJetset Mon 03-Apr-17 16:41:26

Well I think that's mean and if you're worried about some sort of sexual abuse accusation I think you need to give your head a wobble.

RestlessTraveller Mon 03-Apr-17 16:41:54

Wait, are you saying you can't trust your partner around 7 year old girls?

WateryTart Mon 03-Apr-17 16:42:40

FFS, let the poor kid have a wee and get treatment for that paranoia.

Underbeneathsies Mon 03-Apr-17 16:43:00

I think you're right, OP, let her go and use her own loo.

It's a safeguarding issue.
I once was called by one of the dcs 5yo friends to wipe her bum. Nearly threw up with the stench. She had managed to get to the loo but it was diarrhoea.
Wondered what I'd do if when/ if she mentioned to her mum I had helped her in the bathroom, and it was misconstrued somehow. I had to use baby wipes.

Far better to wash hands of all toileting issues IMO. Let her use her own.

BabychamSocialist Mon 03-Apr-17 16:43:10

Have you had some sort of head injury?

Why would you not let a child - who you actually know, seeing as she plays with your kids - use the toilet?!

Why would your head immediately jump to thinking of false accusations? That's the worrying thing, in my opinion!

OhDearToby Mon 03-Apr-17 16:43:33

No, that's crazy.

She's 7 ffs. Let her use the toilet!

ShatnersBassoon Mon 03-Apr-17 16:43:42

How daft. Let the kid use the toilet.

Husband is not at home confused.
