Our younger son, 5, has a friend that has no boundaries. We recently went to their house for a play date and pizza and were appalled at how the parents handled their son. Their son was rough, bossy, and constantly bragged and they never intervened. When it came time for pizza, they asked him where he wanted to sit before we could sit down. They asked him which pizza he wanted and served him first. He started eating before anyone else had food. They broke every etiquette rule that we have been teaching our sons from day one.
In the car ride home we had a discussion about the rules in their house and how they were different from ours.
We will not go to their place again and will probably avoid sociallizing with them. It is hard enough to teach kids good behaviour and respect without exposing them to this.
