Okay, it's not dark out, my five year old was sitting on the steps of my front porch drinking a juice box. My door is wide open and I am sitting next to the window, curtains open about 3 feet from my door watching him. He is in plain view, he listens really well so if I were to tell him to come back in he would. If he started to run down the side walk and I told him to come back he would. This older woman is walking her dog down the side walk in front of my house, she stops, comes up the walk way through my front yard, to my porch and asked my son where his parents were. He told her that mommy was inside. So she tells him, and I am watching this through my open window, able to hear everything, she says "Well, you shouldn't be out here by yourself. You back inside and if you want to come back out, tell your mommy to come out with you." He gets up and comes in and she turns to leave, he goes back to the door, opens it and stands in the doorway and she comes back to my porch, tells him to go back inside, then waits for him to come in and she turns and walks away. I was sitting here like wtf? Who does this woman think she is to tell my kid to come inside when I told him he can sit on the porch to drink his juice???
Seriously, would any of you be a bit upset if someone starting telling your kids what to do on your own property?
I wouldn't have said anything. If he were playing in the street then I might say something. If she was so damned concerned then why didn't she make sure you knew he was outside and let it go at that? I mean, you could have been laying on the floor in medical distress and all she is concerned about is telling your DS to not sit out on the front porch by himself? I know that's a bit of an exaggeration, but still, she should have gone to the source instead of trying to micromanage a child.

"she goes into this long thing about being a retired kindergarten teacher and missing her kids and knowing whats best for kids etc"
Oh, God! I have a neighbor like that. My son went to go to the play court and he was about to cross the parking lot when he saw her backing out. He stopped and then she stopped, so he waited and when she didn't move, he started crossing again. She got out and yelled at my son saying that he was daring her to hit him. I watched the whole thing from the bottom of the outside stairs. She gave this whole speech on how she was a retired teacher and she knows whats best.
