A good friend and i have different parenting styles. she is pretty relaxed and her kids are a bit unruly. They play really rough and haven't been following my rules at my house. My kids are frustrated and frankly so am I. I'm not sure what (if anything) to say to the friend about it. I really like her. i'm just not digging her kids with my kids. Any advice?Answer Question

Your probably going to get this with any new friendships that come your way that involves children. Just remember~your house, your rules. Let them know that if they do not listen that you will have to give them a time out if they can't play nicely. If my son has his friends over & if it is him or his friend that started the confrontation, Then he will have to set down on the couch with me for a time out & when it's over he can go back into the playroom as long as there is no fighting. If it occurs again, it's back to the ol' drawing board or I tell my son or his friend that "company" will have to go home if they don't be nice. That goes for if the parents are there as well. I'm okay for a parent to give my child a time out if he is misbehaving.
