honestly I vote hot tape too. I seriously love kids, but would NOT be ok with them coming into my yard. If they still kept doing so then dang straight I'm going to put hot tape around the top of my fence... but then I have a dog that is NOT super kid friendly and if he happened to be in the yard when a kid came over the fence I would be worried about that outcome... would much rather have that added deterrent of hot tape to keep kids out of my yard.
