Do you feed the neighbor kids?
We have new neighbors, our kids ( age 5 and 2.5) are friends with their kids (ages 4,6, and 10).
typically play in the yards, and sometimes our house. When they are in
our house they always ask for food. even when they are just in our
yard - they'll open the screen door and ask for food. They ask for the
fruit we have on the counter.
they are in our house I'll typically feed them, outside, eh. It
aggrevates my DH to no end b/c "we didn't do that as kids" I agree with
him, but I don't care that much though. I don't give snacks to my kids
unless I'd give to the friends too, but it's not my kids asking, it's
I don't think they are poor as they just bought a house, a trampoline, drive a nice car, etc. . . . But the kids always say they don't have fruit at their house.
Do you feed your kids'friends? or tell them to go home and eat (they live right next door BTW).
Today they've been outside, a rare 60 degrees in Dec in WI. From the 3 kids we've been asked 5 times.
