Re: Worried I'm causing fights with other parents
I would continue as you have been. Kids say things that aren't necessarily true and not necessarily a lie either all the time. My 8 year old told the neighbors she wasn't allowed to play at their house a few weeks ago because I said no when she had asked the day before. The mom called me concerned that something had happened that caused me to not let the kids play over there.
It could be that they had a single disagreement over how much time is spent on play days.
My dh is not the type to like our kids having friends over a lot. I, on the other hand, love being the neighborhood hang out. I'm sure we've discussed it in front of the kids. We compromise and have most play dates while he is at work/out of town (which is most of the week anyway). When he is home we stick to family time.
