The kids in my neighborhood all play at eachother's houses through out the day. Sometimes when they are in my back yard, they ask for water, which I have no problem giving them. There are 7 kids in all including my almost 9 year old son (all ages 7-11). When they ask for water, I give them all their own cups with their names written on it. I ask them to put the cups back on the porch when they are done so they can reuse them. I get tired of going thru a pack of cups a day. 2 of the boys constantly throw their trash in my yard, including the cups that I ask them to return to the porch. So today when one of those boys asked me for water, I told him to go home and get it. That I'm tired of cleaning up after him even when i ask repeatedly that he return his cup to my porch. he acted appalled that I told him to go home. Am i being too harsh?
