How often do you let the neighborhood kids play at your house?

I have them at the door pretty much daily asking to play.  I allow it usually a couple times a week.  It would be one thing if they wanted to play outside, but having them indoors just gets annoying to me....the added noise, the mess, the asking for stuff (snacks, drinks, etc) .    Just wondering what the norm is.

Never, we have no neighbors with kids currently. But we just got a new house that has children in the neighborhood and I'm excited about the idea of having kids coming to play at the house! lol maybe I'm weird but I know my oldest has been utterly bored when we couldn't go to the park or arrange a playdate.

Never. Because I have a very sick child and don't need their grubby germs everywhere. If that wasn't the case though they could come over all day, everyday for all I would care.

they dont but the neighbor kids play outside all the time. Gets annoying when you want some quiet and cant enjoy your own home for the noise outside and you cant legally do much about it when they are in common space.
