  • You can always refuse to let the child come over. If it's not my kid I don't feel right yelling at them, but I WILL be firm and insistent. I've also told the neighbor kids that if they don't help clean up their mess they made they will not be able to come back. I've also talked with the parents and gotten full support from them in dealing with kids.

  • I agree if you can't help clean up you don't come back, if they still don't tell their parents they are not welcomed back because they can not help clean up messes they make. And your not a maid.

  • I have no problem telling DD's guests they have to help clean up after themselves. If their parents have a problem with it they can keep their kids home.

  • I had a problem with a neighbor child not wanting to help clean up the mess. I called her Mom, who I happen to be friends with.She marched her DD little behind right back over! Never had a problem since!

  • well the mom was here also and told him to clean it but he refused to listen to her also and im not just talking bout cleaning just anything if they refuse to listen and i had a family gathering is why they were here and one of the kids live here part time although that is a good ideal not my best option here and i refuse to touch other peoples kids
