If I didn't want to watch their son...I would just say no.

I'm not sure what more than that youre looking for?

Yeah I would be polite about it but just be like no I can not watch your son. Or tell them you have plans when you just need some time to yourself.

I would flat out tell they that I can't anymore and they have to find someone new. You are being too nice and they are taking advantage of you. They will continue until you do something about it.

People will treat us the way we allow ourselves to be treated.  Just stand up for yourselves, you can do it and still be nice.

If we don't want to be bothered, we don't answer the door or we flat out say no.

Just say you're busy. Eventually they will stop bothering if they know that coming over will just mean going back. 

Make someone happy today, mind your own business.

Why are they coming 2-3 times a day?  I wouldn't answer my door and if they say something because they knew you were home, I'd tell them I was busy with whatever you want to tell them..........I'd be getting bothered over that too.

Just because the phone rings, doesn't mean you have to answer it.  Same goes for the door.  They can only come in if you are opening the door for them.
