Opinion about neighborhood kid
Anon_14324 posted:
My son's friend who lives the next block over but pretty far down the block is 7 (8 in August). He rides his bike around the neighborhood with no helmet (and no shoes or socks yesterday) in the street, knocking on everyone's door trying to find a friend to play with. We are usually home, so he comes to our house quite frequently now that it's warmer out.

We've had issues with him like peeing all over the toilet and floor, not helping to clean up, talking about inappropriate things, throwing lollipop sticks on the ground, etc. BUT giving him the benefit of the doubt, he's a kid. He is also the 5th kid out of 6.

Anyway, we have a lot of problems with this. Besides for showing up like every day unannounced, sending him home I am uncomfortable with. What if god forbid someone takes him, he falls off his bike or he gets hit by a car?

How should I handle this? I am posting as anonymous just to be safe but you all know me J
