Stick to your guns and put your foot down. Let them know the rules and make sure your children know what will happen if the rules are broken ie The friend might not be allowed to come back. Explain what areas are off limits and things that are not allowed. I also ask that the child's parents know where he is and what time he is to go home. I had 1 parent that dropped of their child and then decided to go partying. The parent did not come to pick up the child at the agreed apon time. When we found the parent in a local bar we let her have it and I did not care who heard it. I really felt sorry for my Child's friend. The parent has finally smartened up and is now on the straight and narrow with a little help. It is sad that there are people that don't care about their kids until something happens.
