Almost every day after school around 3pm this kid comes to our door asking if my son can come out and play.. I dont mind at all..today he showed up again.. then he goes on telling me that his parents are leaving to go somewhere... Kinda like well they are leaving I need a place to hang till they get back..

I told him no not right now my son still has homework and chores... It would have been different if his parents came up to my house and talked to me..

Update; So the kid did go home and he did go with his mom... he was back a short time later maybe 15min later... I have met his mom the first time on sunday and I talked to her some more this afternoon.. They are actually a pretty nice normal family.. not many people are that way in our neighborhood

We use to have a neighbor child like that. I felt so sorry for him. They home schooled as do we but he was always at our house so I have no clue when they actually did school. He would come over every morning wanting my kids to play and mornings for us is when we get most of our lessons done. One morning he came by and said his mom's at work and dad hasn't come home from work yet, can he come inside? WHat was I to say? I let him in and we took a break from school. COme to find out, dad went to bed as soon as he came home while mom worked. The child was often left alone day after day because he was under strict orders to never wake daddy. Dad would wake up about the time mom came home form work, about 5ish. :(

Wow that is just crazy. I would have done the same thing. It's not a big deal that the kid came over, but it was the fact that the parents assumed it was ok while they went to the store.
