I am wondering what other working parents do to manage play date etiquette, as they try to balance the safety of their children with the desire for their child to develop deeper friendships. When my daughter gets a request for a play date, I try to meet the parent and speak to them first. It is sometimes challenging or impossible to meet ahead of time, as many parents including myself work full-time. How have other parents managed these requests? This issue arises for me, because my x-brother in-law today allowed my niece to go on a play date with a girl from school and did not get the name, telephone number, or address of the child's parent before allowing her to go, nor did he interview the parent. My sister was left not knowing where her child was or how to locate her. Then refused to answer my sister's calls and told her she was over-reacting. Clearly, he did not manage the situation well at all, and put his child in possible danger. Nevertheless, this raises a general question, about how other working parents manage these last minute requests. Thank you.
