My neighbor has three children one that I think is 11 and the other two under the age of 7. This pregnant mother who smokes and drinks on her front porch lets her children roam my back yard and neighbors yard (we live in townhouses and she lives in a separate building.) and takes the our kids toys to their yard and harasses our kids telling them to leave their own yard. We tell them if you can't play nicely then you should go back to your yard. After only living here for almost two months and our neighbors in our townhouse complex only living here for 4 months we have had enough because this happens on a daily basis. We have asked the mother when she is on the porch that if her kids cannot play nicely with our kids to keep her kids in their own yard. She truly is not watching her children, she cannot see the kids from the porch she is on. She doesn't stay outside to watch them and doesn't see that they are causing problems. She just gets defensive and says they aren't even in your yard. It has gotten so bad that my husband told her if her kids cannot play nicely in our yard that they need to stay in their own yard. I can see why the apartment is for rent on the other side of her building....

This is what you get living in an apartment or townhouse complex. If you can not address the mother on the issues, then get her apartment and building numbers and turn her into the management. Also call the police and tell them there are some kids running around outside with no adult watching them. If you complain to management enough she might get her kister kicked out.

Yea. I'm not moving because of her and her kids, they won't run me out my new place. I feel bad for those children because they don't have guidance or a role model. We will see how this plays out.

If that does not help, then I can not tell you what other options you have. Other than moving.
