ok, i volunteer at a church every weds. well since school got out i've had a friend's daughter watching the girls on weds. they are 11, 8 and 6 the friend is 22 and has a 2yo. well when i get home from church i see all four kids running back to our apartment. they are playing behind three other apartment buildings. the friend is in my apartment playing on the computer. i was steamed when i saw them across the street.
we live in the projects, now i don't want the kids over there because A: i can't see them from my windows. B: the cops are over across the street almost every day because someone is beating up someone else. C: i don't trust anyone here because there was a guy who lived over that that was a pedifhile. (he's not on the lease and the cops have escorted off him away twice since oct)
this isn't the first time she's let them go over there. i just told her i'll find a new sitter. now the friend is mad at me. she says i'm over reacting and to let her daughter keep watching them. i won't let them go over to the friends place because they do stuff over there i don't want around my kids. and they always do it when she's not home.
i just want to know, how would you act if this happened to you?

No you are not overreacting I would be doing the same as you and no matter how much my friends tell me to give her another chance I would not do it. My kids are more important than the feelings of a friend. You said it yourself the place is dangerous I would not risk it again. good luck finding a new sitter.
