Right so the problem is my father. He doesn't understand why I say "don't come round before 9 o'clock in the morning as I need the kids to concentrate on getting ready for school".
Today was a classic example, dad had been notified by the council that his road was being re-surfaced today. So therefore he had said about parking the car at ours so it was out of the way. We agreed to this but stipulated that we wouldn't be able to let him in at the time he would get to ours (8 o'clock in the morning) as the kids would be getting ready for school. Dad said ok and he would park at ours and go to our local shops. That was fine with us.
So today comes and what does dad go and do? Yep you guessed it, he tries to just walk straight in. I had the chain on and said to him through the door that the kids were having breakfast. He insisted on coming in anyway and after wishing hubby Happy Birthday he then goes and plonks himself on the sofa, consequentally the kids dont get ready and I end up having a major go at my dad for not respecting my wishes and how he should respect others as he demands respect himself.
So my question really I suppose is "What can I do about my father's blatant lack of respect for me, my house, my rules etc etc"
