My niece is 5yo. She had a playdate the other day with a little girl from her school. The little girls mother just dropped her off and left for a few hours to do errands. All went well, but now it's my niece's turn to go to the little girls house. My sister-in-law, however, does not want to simply drop her off and leave. How should she tell the other little girls mom that my niece can come over to play, but that she, my sister-in-law, will be staying too?Answer Question

I expect if my child has a play date that the other parent is staying as well. I am not a free baby sitter. I am also not the one who needs to correct the other child if his or her behavior is a little off that day. If this were me I would just call the other parent and tell them I am staying to watch how my child interacts with her child. Plus I like to take pictures of my child with his friends. I make it clear I do not post them on FB or any other place. I even give copies of them to the other parent. I have never had any parent who just dropped of the kid and left. How interesting. I would have to say if that were me I wouldn't pursue another play date with this child. Maybe the kid is an excellent child but I have to have a responsible parent too.
