We live on a block with kids of various ages, unfortunately there is a mother who blames her sons actions on all the other children. We all know no child is perfect, but when the obvious is right in front of you;caught smoking,peer pressuring another to smoke pot, becoming physical in a confrontation- and not taking responsibility for her sons initiating it,furious that my son defended himself. The issue at hand is I have waited to speak to her directly, she will only say mean things, belittling,hurtful towards my children and other kids on the block. The teen age girls are fast and their mothers are absent etc..when quite honestly they are great kids and great parents.
She approaches and makes these comments to My kids and others when no other adults are around. I feel its a sense of control and power for her but I am engaged. The last incident was the entire block of kids were playing (10 kids) & she told her kids they would get in trouble for playing with ours._My husband and I had encourged the kids to play_Causing a divide amongst all of them and making them all uncomfortable. Then says just ignore them. Of course my kids came in feeling awkward, and my 10 year old cried. Later that day, their kids were sneaking to play with mine on the side of the house.
The mother has issues- the husband has openly stated he mental health issues and he is limited to what he can say/do because he has to live there. At a loss...at the end of my rope with her comments and actions (and this is simply a mini summary)

Sarah we know we cant control her but her being nasty towards everyones children verbally when noones around is out of control. And beyond frustrating-our problem is solved they are moving this weekend. But thank you!

're reading this it looks as encouraging the kids to play caused the divide_ that is not at all what I meant. The divide was caused parents comments.
