Re: Opinions please? Awkward situation...

I would inform the person who you were visiting that you don't feel comfortable and have any future visits at your own house. It isn't good to have a parent of another child undermine your athority with your own children. Remember the reason you have those rules in place (open door, lights on), is to keep your kids safe, and do NOT compromise.  If the people were living there temporarily, they might of come from a bad situation themselves, and traumitized children sometimes act out what happened to them, or what they saw.  You don't have to be rude, but as the mother of your children, it is your job to protect them and at the very least, you don't want your girls to think not listening to you (like the boy was not listening to his mom) is an okay way to behave.
