I explain, right in front of my children, that we do not talk or behave this way in our home. If it goes on, I will talk to my child about why this is not going to be allowed and why this child may not be a good choice for a friend. I do not get into it with the parent because it is none of my business unless it is abuse. Some families act differently than mine and if my child wasn't respectful of their ways, in their home, I would expect the parents to do the same thing. I don't want a call about my kids "bad" behavior though unless it's harmful to her or them.
