We've had new neighbours across the road from us for about 8 weeks, I do know the father as he lived in the same street as I did as a kid, tho he is around 6 yrs younger than me. Without sounding nasty, as it's not meant too, he wasnt quite right, he was a very loud, cheeky, obnoxious in your face sort of kid, I always spoke to him I felt a bit sorry for him, & he'd often tag a long with a few of us as long as he was not being a pain, but he was hard work. He now has 3 lads of his own who are 3 times worse than he was!!! they've had 5 different council houses because they kids are so badly behaved & mum & dad dont deal with them very well & ignore a lot of behaviour! Im so looking forward to kids going back to school on Monday but dreading the 6 week summer hols!!! because it's been so hot, the doors & windows are open & all week all i've heard is them screaming shouting swearing & arguing with each other, all kids argue but these 3 are so loud you wouldnt believe, & if they cant get their own way the start kicking the family car or the front door or banging on the windows etc screaming & crying on top note. All of which their parents ignore! all day yesterday they were using the empty bin as a drum all 3 of them beating hell out of the bin with sticks again which was totally ignored, they just can not seem to play without fighting screaming & shouting, they range from 12 to 7, & the language is choice! My own daughter had learning problems but because she was taught right from wrong & if she was out of line she spent an hour in her room or she was grounded! we never had any complaints from neighbours, my only run in with them is to tell them to stop teasing my dogs because if they do end up getting bitten it's their own fault. With the guidence these 3 are getting (or rather the lack of it) I dread to think what theyre gonna be like 3 or 4 years down the line! Im gonna start stocking up on head ache tablets now ready for the summer hols, because they've done my head in for a week, dread to think what I'll be like after 6 weeks of summer hols!
