Do people think that you are to honest with sometimes? One of my mom friends told me that because one day we was talking and I might of said some things to her about the way her kids act and why I do not really like for them to come over because when they do something always get broken because they be in my living room playing like they are out side. My own daughter don't even play in the house like that because she know that is not allowed. So I told her she need to tell them when they get here to sit down and behave and she told me that I do not mind speaking what's on my mind. I was only telling her what other people do not want to tell her about her boys. So, what do you think?

Being Honest is one of the most important character in a individual's attitude because it not only helps you take the right decision but in another way save the other from taking a wrong step in there unawareness. Being honest makes u bold enough to speak out your mind in the right manner. And you are always free from the tension of being caught if you have done something wrong because it is always easy to fool other bit not ourselves. So being honest is like a free bird who always fly high in the sky.

I think if its your house you have the right to tell the parent to sit her kids down, or don't bring them over. Plain as that. After all, it wasn't even your company, right? Your mom should back you up on this 100 %. I have a friend that has this same problem. She want say anything. Its her friends. She doesn't want to hurt feeling. I say protect your stuff.

My mom does back me up and she also tells her the same thing. I do have to protect my stuff because I can't afford to buy anything else. Thank you for the response.

I think you are perfectly entitled to tell people the standards of behaviour you expect in your own home. I think you've done the mother and everyone else a big favour by bringing it to her attention that the way her kids act is unacceptable. I admire people who have the guts to speak their mind even if it makes them unpopular

I believe we said that when other people tell us things we do not want to hear but we know they are truth. It is up to you to tell guests how do you want them to behave, if you can make your front or back porch a place you can receive visits with kids that can't behave well, that you at least you have some control without make other people feel bad and you do not lose things either.

I can admit being truthful can be a defect in myself I have been known to be too honest even in cases I should keep my mount shut like when I was growing up growing older I have not learned to lie never that for then there are stories to keep track of when the truth is so much easier. But also one learns there is a time and place to state things I am never for lying I am also one to say I do not want to answer or refuse and let them take it for that but lying I can not do

i don't blame you at all. i tell people i treat all kids the same as my. i won't spank other poeople kids but i will tell them to sit thier butts down and don't to do things my kids aren't allow to do. if they parnets and kids don't like that they don't need to come over if they aren't going to watch thier own kids, and they shouldn't get mad at you if it's your rule of the house. we had a kid took my keys one time so i yelled at them and put them on couch. well thier dad was like i guess you need to learn to put your stuff up. i told him no you need to teach your kids not to touch other people stuff. it's your house and your rules. if she's not going to stop or watch them, she shouldn't get mad at you for it.
