Excessive noise including a child running around above my head

My neighbors are so rude and loud. Very disrespectful. I've grown use to them making noise during the day like walking heavy and dropping things on the floor which sounds like it's about to come through our ceiling but when it comes to letting their children run around? I can't stand it. I've gotten migraines because of it. We've confronted them about it but they don't care. They let it continue and so does my father-in-law who's the landlord because all he cares about is money. Any advice?

Hello

i was in the same position about 2 1/2 years ago. I would wake up to the child running around and go to sleep to it at night. I used to go up to the apartment and ask them to try and keep the noise down to no avail. needless to say now that i have a toddler i can completely understand that there is not much you can do. They are active and have a lot of energy to burn so i agree with Trisha as i did, move to a top floor where there is no one above you. That solved my issue.

I am sure you understand that it is normal for children to run around. They don't do it to be inconsiderate, that is just how children are.
It sucks that the children have to grow up in an apartment, but they need to feel comfortable in their own home. With the cost of housing right now, it is very hard to expect families starting out to live in a house now, with a yard so that they have this opportunity to burn that energy.
My suggestion, move to a top floor apartment so that no one is directly above you. I KNOW that isn't what you want to hear, but at least this is a response, since you haven't appeared to gotten any yet.
