when the child was coming to your house to play? My husband is building a tree house in our back yard. The neighbor boy is really excited about it. The thing is, this little boy (he is 5) does not listen at all. We don't mind him coming over and playing when we are home. We have sent him home before when he doesn't follow our rules in our yard. We are just worried about him coming over when we are not home and getting in the tree house, falling off or whatever. Or even when we are home, just not listening to us and jumping off and getting hurt (it is about 6ft up). We were thinking of having his parents sign a waiver saying if he got hurt that we are not responsible. I was just wondering if anyone ever had another parent do this or if you have ever signed a waiver for your child?Answer Question

I would not have them sign anything not drafted by a lawyer. Also, if he is not invited, it is tresspassing, and his parents would be responsible. Ultimately, they are always responsible unless they've asked you to watch him.

IDK about treehouses or trampolines - but where we live in FL trespassing laws or not; you still have to have a locked fence with a gate or cage around your pool with handles that are mounted higher than 'standard' so kids can not gain access to your pools; county ordinances or something - along with your homeowners insurance you might want to check with your city or county to see if there are any regulations as well...
Hope it's not too difficult; sounds like fun!
