I'm trying to figure out what to do. There is this 7yr old boy that lives on the 1st floor of my apartment building, well Friday night he asked if my ds could go out and play, so I took them to the playground. When we got there this other child came to play with the boys. This boy was about 2 1/2. The 7 yr old and the 2 yr old proceeded to start throwing rocks and such at each other, as well as the wood chips from the playground. After getting hit with a rock and several wood chips I decided I didn't want my son to be around this type of behavior and came home. Every night since the 7 yr old is coming up and asking if my son can play. I've notice that he only does this after all his older friends have gone in for the day. I feel sort of bad telling him the ds is eating, sleeping, etc. I can see that the boy is lonely but I just can't see him playing in ds's room with his toys and such. I am thinking of giving the playground one more shot and if his behavior hasn't improved much of telling him that ds isn't going to be spending time with him if his behavior doesn't improve (only if his behavior is as bad as it was that other day)... but on the other hand I don't want to hurt his feelings. Ugh..I am just so confused...
