I live in a gated community with a playground. A new family moved in about 2 months ago and have three boys ages 6, 8, and 10. The smallest one (age 6) just roams the community on his scooter unsupervised. I can tell he gets limited attention at home. He is very wreckless on his scooter and has almost been hit several times darting in front of cars that are driving thru the parking lot etc.. I have told him several times that he needs to be careful, but he is 6! He drives my 9 year old nuts and constantly follows her, bangs on our door for her etc. The other evening he was in front of our place for an hour and no one came to check on him. I am on the verge of calling CPS. I am so concerned for his safety. I honestly do not want to confront the parents, because I need to live in this community with them. Any advice or thoughts? Thank you in advance.
