I just want to know how other families are in regards to how much your kids play outside with their friends and how late as well. Here’s the story. I have an 8 year old step daughter and she has a neighborhood friend that comes over to our house pretty much every chance she gets. I mean the minute we pull up in the driveway Shes over at our car door. She wanders the neighborhood all day long, I’ve never seen her parents out playing with her or even watching her for that matter. My step daughter has been hanging out with her more and more and Shes finding herself in trouble more and more now because she makes such poor decisions when Shes with this girl. For example the girl talked my step daughter into leaving the neighborhood and going down and playing in the creek (which they just did a news study on and is very contaminated with stuff) and they were actually in the creek playing. I went to check on her after about 30 minutes and they were not at the friend’s house they told me they were at and were in fact in this creek. Needless to say I was very mad. When they ask me to do something or go somewhere and I say no not today or just plain no I hear this kid telling my step daughter to ask me again and say please please please. And shell just sit there for 10 minutes telling her to come ask me again and what not. So then another issue I’m having is that this kid is coming over to my house at 9-9:30 pm some nights asking if my step daughter can come out to play… ummm no Shes in bed by then. A few other things my step daughter tells me this girl is always lifting her shirt up and talking about sex and “adult body parts” exc. Can someone please tell me if I’m just too uptight or do I have a reason to feel completely annoyed to the point I want to move out of this neighborhood to get away from this girl! I could probably go on and on with a million reasons why I don’t want my step daughter playing with this girl!Answer Question
