I don't let the neighborhood kids in my house

Am I horrible? There's a group of boys in our neighborhood DS's age and older. They rove the neighborhood and come to our door sometimes asking to come in or swim in our pool (it's like a blow up kiddie pool). I grew up in a rural area, so if we wanted to go to a friend's house we had to ask our parents and everything. I don't know these kids or their parents. The only ones I let in are the neighbor's kids because I know their mom. I did let them all in once and some were incredibly rude. I just don't want them tearing up our house and the pool is not big enough. Am I evil for sending them away?

Nope. I don't either. And I don't let my kids go into others homes either.

Do you think you are?  Does our opinions about your situation change the way you will deal with it?

Not really, just wondering if most moms do let the herd in.

I would not let random kids in my house.  Especially if they came up to my door and asked lol.  

And I hope you corrected them when they were rude in your home.

I don't let them in my house either. Want to play with my kid? Stay outside.

If they were my kids friends I would but it would depend how I felt about them I guess....i always think that I'd rather the kids hang out at my home then go to someone else's.

I don't normally let any kids in my apt. My kids don't have any friends, but if they did, they would have to play outside.

I won't let random kids come in to my home. Nor will I let my kid go to some random home. I believe in meeting the parents. Seems like I'm the only one who feels that way in this neighborhood
