We actually have. :D
I don't mind them playing in the yard when my kids are outside as well.
This afternoon, DD who is six opened the door and called, "Excuse me, you can't play in our yard if we are inside, thank you, bye."
One of the siblings has knocked on my door and asked for a PBJ various times.
Other times I'll offer her something, she'll say.."Nah..., do you have potato chips."
There are two families living in the tiny house. Family 1 is parents 4 kids, family 2 is single mother, 3 kids. They range in age from 1 to about 12.
In the summer, these kids go out at dawn and are out until dusk. I get knocks for juice boxes, "can we use the bathroom" Once, "Can you be my mom?"
I think when we aren't home is a terrible idea, something could happen, other children could come by. Other adults. I think it's a bad idea.
:eek: Two families in one home? Don't you have a homeowner's association? That's totally against the rules here, and most places have the same rules/laws.
Sounds like they are basically street urchins, begging for food and water from others. I call this neglect and I might be tempted to call CPS. Anything could happen to these children! There are child predators just looking for this sort of situation!
They seem not to understand basic social boundaries, too. You have to wonder at kids who will just ask anyone for food, juice, etc. instead of going home to get their own food. Probably little food on hand, if I had to guess. 3 adults? Are any of them working?
