It's been a ton of fun being in a house in a neighborhood filled with children my kids age. With that said, there is one boy that I cringe at when he is around the kids. He is 4 years old and his brother is 6. His brother is a really nice, respectful child. The 4 year old unfortunately is odd, to say it nicely. Here are a couple of things:
He will drop his pants in the front of his house in clear view of all to see to take a pee
He will randomly ring the door bell and run
He will ring the door bell, then immediately walk in the door yelling, HELLO!
He uses words that I try to keep my children away from saying
He spits on things like the car, or at people
He is rude!
So, there it is. What do I do? The kids like playing with him, but are constantly telling me of the things he is doing that is wrong. I try to kindly redirect and explain why it's not ok to do certain things. Is that enough. His parents are very nice and very well educated (both are professors in the sciences) and we have been warned by the other parents about these boys. Do I need to set up some boundaries about only playing with them while I am around, or do I talk with Jacob and Isabelle before and after play times to reteach anything they might have picked up?
