Why on earth would any boy of 6 need his mom to get up at night to take him to the loo ? Why can't he do that for himself ? And if he's too lazy to do that himself, why doesn't she provide him with a potty he can use in the bedroom, and then empty, himself, into the loo in the morning ? And it sounds like the girl is far too focussed on dieting and being skinny, and may develop anorexia when she gets older. Maybe just plain badly brought up kids. YOu're entitled to decide who your kids will play wih or invite around, and just because they're neighbours doesn't mean you have to have them as friends. And maybe you can gently tell the mom that your children are bothered, and you can understand them, that the girl talks about nothing except dieting, being skinny, and money, and they wory about a boy of 6 who can't get to the loo on his own. Give her an opportunity to talk about these problems, rather than to assume there's something wrong with your kids for not wanting odd friends
