Do any of you have your kids friends over ALL the time? I love my kids friends. They are great people and I think my husband and I have set an example of how we want them to feel welcome in our home. Most of them come from very dysfunctional or broken homes and have a lot going on. Here they are safe, fed and get the "family" atmosphere without a lot of drama. We love one another and we are very affectionate and we take them places with us. I consider them to be my children when they are here, but sometimes.....I want them to go home. My teenagers best friend is with us every weekend and when shes not, she calling looking for an excuse to come over. I feel terribly guilty for saying no, not right now, but I know if I let her, she will be here for 3 days. Her mother is always going out and needing a spot for her to stay. Part of me feels like I should deny my own feelings and let her come, but on the other hand...I need a breakAnswer Question

Can my kids come over? Can I have a friend like you?
You are a very special person you know, I don't mean by having the kids over so that I can have some free time but to take them and treat them like your own....that is very sweet of you guys.
I understand you want your own family time, but sometimes you have to say no to her friend (which I know you do) but try not to feel guilty. As much as we would love to help some one in need all of the time they have their own life to live, so just say a prayer for them and move on.GL

Well my family was pretty dysfunctional and I was the friend always coming over. So I'm just going to say thank you.
