For the last couple years since my son has been in school he has had friends come over many times to play, but I realized something recently which is that he hardly ever gets invited by any of his friends. I am very laid back, we have tons of stuff for kids to do in hour house, snacks, dinners, drinks, treats etc. basically it is fun to come to our home and play.
But they never invite Andrew over.
I have not allowed anybody come here for over a week now since one of his friends that was here wanted to make herself a bag of popcorn and almost started a fire in the microwave, I caught it in time though.
Anyway, why don't other parents see that they should maybe reciprocate? I just don't get it.

How long do the kids stay? My limit is about 2 hours. I give a specific pick up time, and that helps to know that the playdate will end. I'd ask a mom you are somewhat comfortable with if your son could play at their house. No reason not to. I'd say something like this: "John really loves when Jack comes over. He's now asking to play at your house. I think the change would be fun for the boys. What do you think if we tried switching off homes for the next couple weeks?"
