What do you do in this situation? Your difficult child wants to go to their friends house up the road for the 4th or 5th time in the past 5 hours to see if they can play. The past 3 or 4 attempts he was met with them being unable to play because they had another friend over. Do you: A) Let him go and bother the family AGAIN, knowing full well that they still can not come over. I know that *I* as the parent would be frustrated with this child continually coming over and wondering what was wrong with these parents letting this child come over...over and over and over again. Also realize that he will probably meltdown when he comes home without his friends yet again...both out of disappointment and boredom. or B) Not let him go and deal with the meltdown that ensues?
