I think it should be ok as long as it is in your house. If they can't control her kids, then I am affraid that you will have to step in and lay down the law. Good luck.

Yes. Your house your rules. If your friend has a problem with it she can leave with her kids. My kids are told they need to listen to whoever owns the house they are in.

Yes it is. You worry about your kids, let her worry about hers.

Not rude... Tell all the kids to calm down. It's your house. If the mother isn't doing her job and doesn't like it, then she can leave. That's my opinion.

 You can explain to the kids your house rules.

It kind of depends on your relationship with your friend. Do u think she would be offended? Maybe if u said something like "Wow, with the kids having so much fun its hard to hear ourselves talk!" And if she still doesn't tell her kids to hush then say to the whole group " Guys, I know you're all having fun but remember we're inside. Let's try to use our inside voices, the mommies' ears are hurting!"

I think it takes a village. i actually like it when others step in. Kids don't listen to mom but someone else they stop dead in their tracks!

 As long as you are addressing all the children it should be fine. :)  And be sweet about it so she doesn't get offended.  It is your house your rules but I would personally try to keep the peace with her.

No,I don't think it's rude at all in your own home.In someone elses home it probably would be.
