I have a 3 yr old daughter and 6 month old daughter. The new neighbors are 4 and 5 yr old sisters. They just moved from the country and the parents let them run around the neighborhood bare foot. The 5 year old pees in her pants all the time. I allowed them to play in my house a couple times and I have them wash their hands before they come inside. Their feet are black with dirt and I cringe when the little girl sits on my couch. I don't know how to say this to their parents without offending them. I need help. I've never been in this situation before. My daughter enjoys the company of the 4 year old. The 5 year old doesn't seem to be social. Not sure why she pees in her pants still. I tried to hint to her parent but she doesnt seem to be concerned. They keep asking to come inside to play and I am running out of excuses. Any advice would be much appreciated.Answer Question

I have that happen here all the time. The neighbor's DD tried to go into my house today (she's 5) I just flat out told her "no, we're playing outside, if you want to go inside, you can go home" Of course I said it very nicely, but firmly. If they come over and you don't want to play outside, then just tell them that it isn't a good time to play but that they can come back another time. That's what I do anyway.

Seriously? A 4 and 5 yr old little girl are running around by themselves? all day, every day? Whoa! major red flags going up about that... something could happen to them in a heartbeat, and if it happened on your property, guess who they'd point fingers at? I'd be really busy with my little one everyday and not available until they get the hint... and maybe like PP said, call for help for these little girls...WOW...

soyousay...the neglect is kids running around with no shoes till their feet are black, a 5 year old wetting her pants. Sorry but a child running around with no shoes until their feet are black and wearing urine covered clothes especially at 5 years old is NEGLECT!!!
