Neighbor’s Kids Are Out Of Control – Daily Dilemma
Here is Today's Daily Dilemma:
My family and I rent half of a duplex on a dead end street in a nice neighborhood. We’ve been here for three years, and the tenant on the other side of the duplex moved out recently and a new family has just moved in. The new family has 3 kids under the age of 10, and the parents never seem to supervise them. The kids run all over the street at all hours of day and even after dark, they ring the doorbell constantly to ask if my kids want to go outside with them, and I have even found them in my garage when I return home after being out for the day. I called our landlord to complain but he says they pay rent so there isn’t anything he can do about it. I know other people on the street have complained, too, because the kids are everywhere and into everything. I can’t even go outside with my kids without the neighbor kids immediately running out to join us – and when I ask them to go home, they refuse. I’ve knocked on the door to talk to their mother who basically said her kids had a right to be outside, too, so deal with it. What should I do?
The "Daily Dilemma" on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone's problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don't have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can't agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we'd love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
