Ahh, but what to do when the children are not invited? I've had a couple come over with their toddler, twice. He was attacking all the low hanging fruit, including electronics and kitchen supplies. I do not have a child-proofed house, or a maypole to dance around like in the photo! Nor did I invite a child to come over, nor did the parents ask.

This was a work colleague of my partner, and they will generally be invited back as part of the company. People at *my* work are starting to have babies in droves, and see this toddler as an example - I'm really afraid of the social problems that are going to come up.

I am posting this here in the hopes that all the parents reading will take it upon themselves to make sure they don't need a babysitter.
