One of my neighbors stopped talking to me. When I asked what was up, she let me know she was upset I grounded my son from playing with hers (mine was copying his behavior)... Her son threatens, breaks things, steals, lies, and is sneaky. I discipline him when in our house for these things. Mom, when confronted, always has a reason that it is not his fault, that's just the way 6 year olds act, I don't see what the big deal is, he never does/says that at home... We spend most of our weekends outdoors and the kids all play together.
I have found out the other girl in this neighbor play set, well, same sort of issues with behavior and her mom doesn't think there is anything wrong with the behavior either.
Have I lost it? My rules are respect yourself, respect others, respect the environment. If you get in trouble at school or with another adult, you will get in trouble at home. Am I over the top too strict?

I have learned ,if, you teach your children well,they may look at the water,but,they won't jump in. I also observed some of my children,badest,unmannered friends ,loved being in my home,and being in my home they learned how to show manners,and most important,the 2 young people,I'm thinking about are now,college educated and have kids of their own. The 1 thing that was hardest for me to accept was to stop blaming other kids for my children mis-behaving, remember our children are to abide our rules, I said this because I have 6 children grown kids,all are mind temper,educated, always mannerable,But 1 daughter,my 4th child refused to be obedient, I blamed her friends,teachers, even the church,but, it was her,finally ,when she became 21,she decided she needed her college edcation,she realized,we only wanted her to be an sucess in life. Don't give up on all BAD kids.Bad kids can become Pastors,Engineers,Policeman, Lawyers,etc.
