    Im saying that the neighbour should be more understanding. I'd like to hear the response if the OP's neighbour xalled the police to make a noise complaint - excuse me officer, my neighbours kids cry too much.

    Tell her to jam it up her ****!

    I have two kids and our neighbours have two kids, they are little and cry and scream but meh, its what toddlers do at times! Unless she has any HELPFUL advice then she needs to shut up!

    So basically she just has to put up with it yeah? Awesome way to foster good neighbourly relations . This could also backfire spectacularly on the OP if the neighbour is the vengeful type.

    What's the OP meant to do then? Lock her kids up in a sound proof room? Go out all day, everyday?
    Really, her kids are only going to be young and whingey for such a short period of time, surely the neighbour can deal with it?

    Well what do yoy suggest? That the OP lock herself away kb her house in fear or anyone hearibg her babies cry too often?

    Newsflash for you, I lived in fear of my old neighbours complaining because my DS3 cries a lot (inside the house) and was afraid to let my sons make any noise outside. Its not a healthy way to live. Op should not be afraid to spend time outside with her children in her own backyard.

    Work towards a compromise solution. My neighbour works night-shift, so I know he needs to sleep till 12pm, so I don't let the kids in the backyard or the pool until after 12. We'd all prefer it if they could play outside in the morning, but that's the way it goes living in suburbia, you have to learn to compromise. Alternatively OP could just follow Mahjong's sound advice and tell them to jam it up their ar$e....

    Send the kids her way for the day see if she can do a better job :thumbup:

    In all seriousness though you are doing everything you can. Its not like you love listening to them cry and carry on so she should be a lot more understanding.

    Peanutmonkey omg I cant believe your neighbours

    I would look into why they are crying all the time & ways to handle it. I know kids cry & can be noisy if they are playing but the OP has said they cry all the time. My neighbours 2 kids would cry a lot & whilst I never said anything it was annoying.

    I have a teenager & a toddler and I'm very conscious of how much noise they make because I think it's important to be considerate of our neighbours.
