You could call the police when he is doing illegal things. I think you can do so without giving your name. Also, you need some ground rules/boundaries about what you think is ok. They can't pawn her off unless you let them. So maybe you could say something like: "We'd love to have Kimmi over on Tuesdays, and Josie can hang out on Saturdays when you are home from work this summer." Your own child must follow the rules too. Then you have to stick to that. Lots of parents work, and you really don't know if they have to or not so I'd watch your judgement calls. They could have tons of debt and no one knows about it. Regardless, you have every right to monitor your own child and not get taken advantage of in your own home with your own time.

I wouldn't let my daughter to go to there house, for one. Call CPS if you think the children are not being taken care of properly.
