Relationships with the neigbors.

​We live on the 6th floor, directly below us on the 5th floor lives a young girl. Every day she comes to us and demands to get my son not to run, and he has to walk on tiptoe. I tried to explain to her that it is difficult to explain to the child, that it is not necessary to run. Do I have to put him on a chain????? I was told that by the law, I am entitled to do in my apartment all that I want. Is this true?

    Iuliia, it's true, but I think you looks like this to her:

    sorry, it's true too)).

    What I would do - I'll let this girl to talk to the cause of her troubles (your son) directly - how she would explain him not to run?)). Guess there will be 2 variants after this meeting: she will stop trying to stop him, or he will behave more quiet. Oh no, stop, there is only first variant, if be realistic)).

    Iuliia, there is no other variant - she should fix this problem by herself, because it's not your problem, right?

      It sounds like you've done your part and while I can see both sides, I can completely relate to the children/noise/neighbor thing.

      When we lived in our townhome (1995-2011), which was really a duplex so we shared a wall, an older couple lived next door (they were our third neighbors there). They are the reason we left that home. Their antagonism and hostility towards our children (and us), the neighborhood children in general just got to be too much to live with. They knew when they moved in we had five children at the time. Hello! It's horrible to live with day after day. We weren't happy because we were constantly trying to change our children into people they were not for our neighbor's happiness. They should be happy now as we sold our home to another older couple.

      now I hope they enjoying their older company..One thing I can't get is if they knew you have five children, and they don't like them, why they bought the house anyway? sometimes I don't understand people, for example one of our neighbor- a little boy enjoys playing with my son, and they were always welcome to play bayblade on our patio. And one day this child suddenly said me:"You know, my parents don't like you and your husband". wow, I was shocked, why they let their child to play on our property and just say negative things about us at home?

      I don't understand people either. That's why I'm glad we live near very few now so our children can be children.

      Wow, that's incredible about your neighbor boy's parents. :( I don't get it.

      It takes all kinds of people to make up the world, doesn't it?

      You are right that not all people are mean, but if we could just get the mean ones to turn into nice people the world would be a better place.
