really not like my mates son coming round

Today we had him for an hour and
He teased the kitten
Threaten to poke dd2's eyes ok
Went in kitchen and opened a loaf of bread after we had said no, leaving slices over the floor
Weed in a bowl (which is the sick bowl we keep in the bathroom as dd1 has the sickness bug)
Broken a toy
Bearing in mind this is only what has happened today, if I wrote a list of things in the past such I'd be here all evening.

She is constantly being taken to one side because of his behaviour at school
Pushing other children
Stealing toys etc (i've witnessed him steal in town twice)
"Is his schoolwork ok?"
"Yes Mrs X, he is the brightest child in the class"
"Well in that case, what is the problem, he comes here to learn no do social skills"

Don't get me wrong, she has a heart of gold etc and IS a good friend, though very very unreliable, it's just the lack of discipline with him that gets my back up and I dread him coming round as I know one or both of my daughters will end up crying, the kitten will end up hiding and something will be broken

It's a hard one Radley. Perhaps you could tell her that after today's visit your DD's have been really upset and you feel it's in their best interest if she did'nt bring him round again unless he can behave.
Peeing in a bowl is disgusting! We too ave a sick bowl as the dreaded sick bug visited us. I would be livid at someone peeing into something my DC's have to put there head up close and personal to.
FWIW I also have a friend who's child I hate coming round. I prefer to go to thier house as I know in the past she has drawn on things an blamed it on a naughty fairy. She also sat in DD's room banging toys about and when I aked what was happening she tried to blame DD who was with me, and then asked if my DH was upstairs so she could blame him

Radley, it would be easier just to make youself less and less avilable. Perhaps break arrangments made etc. it's not the easiest or nicest thing to have to do. BUt you are right in taking the 'letting things go' stance rather than confronting her. Perhaps she might ask you what is going on at some point and you can chose what you say then. Good luck.
