Neighbors...grrrr

I need somewhere to vent so why not on Cafemom LOL...

The neighbor boy and my boy play together.  They are a year apart.  Anyways, sometimes the boy won't let my son play at his house and yells at my son to go home.  The mom yells at him to.  When I asked what my son did the boy just says that the daycare kids are over and he'd rather play with them.  The mom won't give me an explanation.

The thing is that I always let her son come over to my house and I don't say he has to go home unless he did something bad, or if my kids have to go in.

This lady has issues (because she told me) and I try to be very understanding because I don't judge but when she gets unreasonable it's so hard.  I don't trust her because she has already had the cops come to her house and had her husband taken away by the law.  She claimed he almost hit her but he didn't.  I really think she makes up a lot of stuff.  Her oldest daughter does pot (because she told me) and she (the mom, a daycare provider) is a drunk because I smell it on her breath often.

Anyways, any advice?  I told my son he shouldn't go over there anymore and it's hard on him but I think it's best because of how she is.

What would you do?

I wouldn't let my son go there. She is a bad influence and does illegal stuff, and she and her son treat your son badly. I wouldn't think twice about it. Have your son play with another child.

 Thanks and that is what I plan to do.  I feel like if I let her over there and she yells at him again for no reason it will just confuse my son.  He is only 5.

I would not allow my child to play at that house. Im sorry to hear you have a bad neighbor. I would find other children for my child to play with or occupy his time with a hobby.

That's an easy one. My kid would NOT be going over there. Doesn't sound like he's very welcome and why would you want your kid going to a place where drugs, alcohol ,violence and the police are present?

 True.  I just want you to know I've never let my son play in this ladies house.  They always play outside where I can see them.  It's hard because the boy (age 6) used to be really nice and friendly to my child but all of a sudden he is becoming a bully.  It just makes me sad.

 Yes, I have a bunch of playdates lined up.  We don't have a lot of kids my son's age in the neighborhood and his brothers are much older.

I would not let my child go over there and I would also report her to whoever is in charge of daycare inspections there.

if your smelling alcohol on her breath I wouldn't let him go over. Sounds like a closet drinker.

I would just tell your son she's not in the right frame of mind to have him over to play.

Good luck!
