I am not a parent, but need some advice on how to handle a situation with other peoples' kids. I hope it's okay to come here and ask a question...
I live in a Townhouse and there are continually kids hanging right outside our back door and kitchen/living room windows. There are a bunch of them, ages about 7-11 I'd say. None of them live in our building, in fact, I believe they are from a different neighborhood altogether. They scream and cuss (sometimes), knock on our door and windows to scare our cats, peek in our back door and windows, ride their bikes in the grass and once some were even lighting fires back there. At times, we have told them they need to leave, but they always return (sometimes even within the hour). I don't want to be the mean old lady (I'm 40), but they are driving me crazy!! I can't even open my blinds and windows because they are RIGHT there. One time they even sat down in the chairs on our patio. Argh! Anyone have any advice???
