There is a 5 year old neighbor boy that constantly is at our home playing outdoors with my 6 and 8 year old daughters. He swears all of time, hits and doesn't listen. I have sent him home countless times, my girls have told his Grandma and mother about his bad behavior just to be told they are little tattle tales. Yesterday, after my 6 year old told him to quit kicking my 1 year old's brand new toy, he proceeded to kick her in the mouth, making a not loose tooth very loose. The child didn't have to come and apologize, and the mother didn't show any remorse for her sons actions because he told her he kicked her on accident. I have to take my daughter to the dentist to make sure there is no nerve damage and I will be handing them the bill for the dentist office visit.

This child is never held accountable for what he does. The mom doesn't watch them while they are outside playing and I am having many issues with her son. I don't know what steps to take next. I know that it isn't easy dealing with a child with ADHD, but am out of patience with this child and his parents. Any ideas on how I should move forward with this?

There is a difference between adhd and being not taking care of. If this child is being neglected call child protective services. My child has poor impulse control but he is not normally hurting other children. Talk to the child and tell him there are rules to playing at your house. Make the rules clear and short. Remind him every time he comes over and tell him how proud you are of any good moments he has. They will get longer and better. You dont have to hurt this hurting child anymore than he already is.You will have to remind him of the rules alot of times but show some love and compassion but still protect your children.

Ok, the last two posts didn't make any sense. But what u describe is my worst fear. That sounds like my son....and usually, one by one, he isn't allowed to play at neighbors houses because of such things...cussing, not listening...etc. These kids have impulse issues among other things. not only that but nobody seems to understand them and all they know is everyone keeps telling them to "go away" or "don't come back" and after awhile, they forget why they keep getting "kicked out:" of their friends houses, and start thinking that their bad people...it breaks my heart as a mother. i'm constantly on my son all the time about 1000 different things. But i cannot force him to learn and practive good play skills nor can I keep him caged cause he has a hard time...it's very hard. On both sides of your issue, I am sorry as a mother you are having to go through this stress. I also feel sorry for your neighbor boys mother. I hope you all can resolve the issue peacefully. You will know what the right decision is. Good luck!
