My So's best friend has a little boy who is a few months younger then my son. He and his wife will bring thier son in our home and won't watch him. I firmly believe that a child should be taught what he can and can't play with (instead of keeping things put up)... I don't let my son climb on the furniture, or get on top of the coffee table. Their little boy does. I will put him down and say... we don't get on the coffee table, or couches are for sitting not climbing... His mom will just sit there and won't say a thing to him. He throws toys (so I have to put up certain bikes, his (kiddie) laptop, etc) and is mean to the dog. The other day I told him four or five times, the doggie is nice to us, so we need to be nice to her. He grinned and kicked my dog. I told him if he did it again I would put him in time out. His mother got mad, got up and left... What was I supposed to do? Tell her to make him stop, or get down?

While,this child was playing and acting out,what was your child doing,just sitting there,being sweet and calm,lol. When,my girls were young, I had a friend,who would come to visit,with her 3 kids,they would run,jump on the furniture, while, she would sit there the whole time talking about my kids ,the neighbors kids,and what she wouldn't allowed. Some parents are clueless,when their kids act out, I have learned to be understanding,while hoping they go home,lol. But, really I don't talk about kids,somebody just may find your little child annoying and bad,and unmanageable.
