  • "You can't go play with the neighbor girl without me because her mom lets her run around the whole condo complex by herself, and I don't think you're old enough to do that."

    "But Mommy, she's the same age as me."

    "What her mom lets her do isn't up to me."

    Which will result in your daughter walking up to Mrs. Neighbor on the sidewalk and saying, "My mommy won't let me play with your little girl because you let her run around the whole condo complex by herself."
