I have a neighbour who I have to say I've never really taken the time to meet properly just said hi a few times. She appears to be young and single. She has two young children I would say about 2 and 3. I always hear her screaming at her kids, now I scream at my kids too, but not when they were that young, and I would never say the things to them that she does. The bigger problem is that the kids are outside, out the front from dawn to dusk. We dont live in the best neighbourhood and cars are constantly hooning up our street, and more than a few times the kids have been playing on the street.
I really want to say something to her but I get the feeling it could cause a huge argument. It's not really something I can report to child protection, but I just dont know what to do. I find myself spending half my day watching the kids out the window.
I'm not trying to be judgemental I know how hard it is to be a single mum and to raise two young children but I'm really worried about the kids.
