I worry too about the dogs. I mean, my dogs are friendly and love kids but they are large dogs and these are small kids.

But hopefully now that i told them they can't do that will solve the issue. The little girls next door did it and i told them
Thwy can't do that because its dangerous and we havent had that issue since. They are sweet girls who are just bored but now they know to just knock... Or most of the time they just stand on their side of the fence and yell for hannah until she comes out.

I don't want to seem like I have no tolerance for kids and the things they do. I love kids. I just hate to see this kind of thing

I have low tolerance for ANYONE on my property who is there uninvited. I don't care how old. I also have a 12ft electric fence that screams unsociable.

I'm looking at my daughter and niece and can not imagine letting them roam unsupervised for even twenty seconds. So many things could happen. How on earth can people do that to their children?!?

I have a dog that is aggressive towards children and even though I have a huge stick up my ass over her (by that I mean ALWAYS with her outside of the house, even in the 8 foot privacy fence on most sides yard) so I would be completely intolerant of this situation. I do feel badly, but on one side of our house we have a regular chain link fence. The kids next door are too tall/old for the range my child hating dog hates (she's totally cool with kids 10+) but they lost a ball in our yard and in effort not to bother us just jumped over, grabbed it, and went back. It was totally harmless and they were probably being polite in not knocking on the door for a soccer ball, but I had to go out and ask them to PLEASE never climb into our yard and they are never bothering us by knocking on the door.

I guess there are some advantages of living on a farm too far from others to worry about neighbour kids... My kids hate it, but I can't say I worry about strange kids wandering in on me.

I live in the middle of town and get very irritated when people cut through my property for any reason. I even started locking our 6ft privacy fence because I didn't want the meter reader just waltzing in.

We have had a couple of soccer balls go over our fence. The first one died a horrible death at the teeth of Sally. She brought us deflated soccer ball remains and we were like, "Ummm, that's not our ball....". Fortunately the last time a ball went over the fence a kid came to the door and asked us to get it.

Yeah I don't get it either. I get it if they are appropriately aged children but 5 and under just seems so wrong. The little girl next door that's 3 (I think she's closer to 4 now but not 4 yet) is always out there by herself during the day now that her sister is in school. Hannah loves to play with her and she's a very "street smart" little girl but seriously? THREE years old with absolutely no supervision?

We live in a cul de sac which is nice because I can take Hannah out there and she'll ride her bike around in it and we'll play ball and run around and stuff and it's a very family oriented street (with the exception of a few) so everyone drives in slowly and there isn't any through traffic. so it's relatively safe but I still would just send her out there and hole up inside and never check on her lol. If she's playing with the other kids often I'll sit up on our front lawn so I can keep an eye on her without hovering over her and while she follows direction very well... I know she's not quite 5 years old and if her ball rolled out into the road she could very easily forget the "don't run into the road and look for cars" rule... she's a kid. I couldn't live with myself if something happened at this age and I wasn't keeping a reasonable eye on her.

the girls next door are very sweet but they don't have much in the way of guidance or supervision. They used to be in peoples front yards all the time picking all their flowers. when we started playing with them I told them that it wasn't nice to pick other peoples flowers, no matter how pretty and they were shocked like no one had ever told them that might not be an OK thing to do. Doesn't look like they do it anymore but it seemed like no one had ever told them that playing around in a strangers yard and picking their flowers was wrong.

Pffffffft sparks, you have no idea!

I have neighbors who have a first grader, kindergartener, and twin boys that are barely 2 years old. (she's swollen again btw) Those kids are outside unsupervised constantly!

I have went over and knocked on the door when one of the 2 year olds were STANDING on the direct tv dish, over a story off the ground, IN THE RAIN! The police have brought the twins home from around the corner BUCK NAKED when a neighbor phoned it in because they had no idea where the kids belonged! Funny how the cop knew exactly whose kids they were huh? The mail lady called the police when the little ones were following her off the property and nobody would come to the door when she knocked to inform them!

Granted, mom works-dad don't and dad is the one 'supposedly' watching these kids......but ya, I couldn't imagine letting my 2 year olds outside alone.....let alone wander the neighborhood!

Anyway, my point is calling CPS probably would do a big pile of NOTHING! You know the cops should be notifying cps with all the reports they've had to fill out, but still nothing!

Ugh. that just breaks my heart to hear stuff like that

Yeah I wouldn't call CPS... for one thing I don't want to invite that kind of trouble from those neighbors into my home (or CPS for that matter) and I have absolutely ZERO faith that CPS does any good for anyone that truly needs it. They are too busy harrassing decent families that have done nothing wrong rather than dealing with issues where kids are truly in danger.

I should also add that we do live in a lovely neighborhood with a great group of people who all get along and are more than willing to help each other out. We know all of our neighbors and they all know us... and then we ALL know the families that constantly have noise complaints called in on them and let their kids run wild.

When the people next door first moved in they were blaring their music SO loud that we could hear the bass in Hannahs room on the opposite side of the house. I went over and introduced myself and politely asked if they could just turn the bass down. they didn't. this went on and on for days as they moved in and got the house "in order" and one day Hubby saw one of the males that lives there (there is a large group always there but I honestly don't know who lives there and who doesn't other than the actual owner of the house) and hubby politely asked him if they could just PLEASE keep the music down so it wasn't shaking pictures off of our walls and he responded with "Sorry man... it's our culture" it's your culture to be an inconsiderate prick? good to know lol

Hehe

this morning has been full of me trying to calm my dogs down as the neighbors grandkids keep bringing their dogs down and standing at my front fence:/ I had put the dogs out as I was trying to do a webinar for my new job and they kept roughhousing, yeah, that didnt work.

The littlest is maybe two. I am guessing they want my kids to come out and play but I am having a lazy morning and we will be leaving soon so they cant right now.
