Then they should play with my child (as opposed to wandering around my house veing nosey and helping themselves to food) or go home?

Probably am being irratiobally irritable

Definitely tell the child to go home. You aren't mean at all Smile

Time for little bored nosey bugger to go home Grin

We had nosy bugger one, caught her in my bedroom and constantly trying to climb over the stairgate I had to re-in state to try and stop her. We have a downstairs playroom so no reason to be upstairs...

You have to be firm with the buggers...

YANBU. One of our neighbours children does this - opens the fridge/ cupboards and helps himself then wanders off to see another child on the street once the snack is done (and raid their fridge). We've all got wise to it and turf them outside to play now.

I don't mind feeding them some snacks or juice if they are playing or handing out icelollys etc on a warm day but when it's just about getting snacks and not playing with my child then it is a problem.

Turf said child out limon

Some kids are being brought up with no manners. After the first time my sons friends played in his playroom they trashed it and kept running in and out. Now i only allow 2 max and I tell them to stay downstairs and play or go home. I also tell them that they can't make mess and must clean up after themselves or they not allowed to play in my house again.

Your house, your rules!

user1497480444 I'm pretty sure he's fed well - certainly not a skinny child. I just think he really likes eating! If I had any suspicion he wasn't getting fed at home then I would be making sandwiches etc for them to eat but really it's just biscuits, crisps, popcorn, yoghurts etc he's interested in. He won't eat things like fruit or cheese and crackers when it's offered.

Nothing worse than neighbours kids. My neighbour has three children 15, 12 and 9. The older two are great, respectful and a pleasure to have around. The 9 year old is a different story. He is lovely most of the time but he regularly needs to be "encouraged" to leave the house. Grin
