Get out of my yard!!!

If 5 kids ages 1-6 (that you don't know) randomly showed up in your yard playing on your trampoline, & swing set, what would you do?

I told them I don't mind if they play here but their parents had to come introduce themselves to me. Apparently, that was the wrong thing to do. since my stuff isn't in a fenced yard I should just let them play and have fun. I'm uptight and controlling.

Do you let the neighborhood kids play in your yard without knowing them or their parents?

Exactly! Plus there are over 100 houses back here. I wouldn't know where to go to get help if one did get hurt.

Not cool. If one of those kids falls and gets injured (off the trampoline for instance) you could end up being sued!

I do. But I know their parents. However, if I had a trampoline. I wouldn't because god forbid something happen to one of them.

I wouldn't.  What if they get hurt?  Their parents should know where they are and maybe watch them so you don't have to watch 5 little kids you don't know by yourself. Also, what if they break something?  There's just too much that can go wrong for me, but if you feel comfortable with it then do what you want.

No way!! I have had to run kids off my swing set before. (I would never own a trampoline).
