OK so DD(5) has been playing with the little girl next door(just turned7)... Well the other night I went out to call her in for dinner. (they play in the yard and we live on a dead en street with barely any traffic and I had the kitchen door open) Well I hear DD saying"no I can't do that my mommy said no." then the other girl we'll call her E says"She won't notice." I called DD in right away anmd told her she is not allowed to play with her. The littel girl in the back we will call I is a very good kid she is 5 as well and her mom has taught her to listen to the adult at the home you are at. So tonight DD is in the yard playing and E is outside on the other side of the fence. I keep having to tell DD to stay away from her. She is 7 and outside all alone with her 2 year old nephew. I feel bad but I don't want her playing with a kid like that.

Why don't you ask? Kids are crazy and you should be proud of her for saying no.

I would not do the same. And I didn't, although there were ample opportunities to do so...

Instead, I pulled those kids much closer. Some of them so much closer than they could handle that they never appeared again. I stayed really close to my kids, particularly when they were that young, so I could see and hear all of what they were doing (and what some nutcase was suggesting they do) ... I was busy doing my own thing (reading, writing, drawing, talking to friends) but close by. Close enough to step in a long time before anything really disrespectful went on, and close enough to be in the way of any violence...

Devious little children don't like adults that close, which is handy because no one wants those kids around, but they take themselves off so they feel powerful instead of shunned, which creates ever so many more problems than it solves.

I'd have responded to that, too, just like you said 'stop,' I'd have said 'no, actually, that's not safe and you're not allowed.'

I, personally, wouldn't let my dd play alone outside at 5.. this being one of the reasons why.

Your DD was true to you that is a great thing!
I would do the same - keep her and E away from each other for a while.
