Is is not normal behaviour and it is not acceptable behaviour for a neighbour to have to put up with.
    I dont know what else we can possibly do because we do this aready! We just dont work around the lives of our neighbours. Which, imo would be quite bizzare. Unless of course the exception would be a shift worker, but they are HOME ALL DAY. I cant imagine talking to my neighbour about "oh, i had a late night last night drinking filthy beer, smoking and watching SBS, could you keep the kids inside untill i say so?".....GOD NO.
    Weekends we are barely even home. DH takes them out shopping and for lunch on a sun and we usually go into town markets on a sat an home for sleeps, maybe out again for an early tea.
    We have a routine and we already have daily activities to go to. I cant swap and change them.
    DD is in daycare wendesays and i take ds out shopping - we are not around wendnesdays!
    It may not be "normal" to cry all day but my kids do. What is not normal is the parent sitting around on FB while they cry. This is not me. I bend over backards for these kids then do backflips for them. Its never enough.
    I must have caught her in a ****ty mood already....

    ***considers the possibility that unsullied may be another of beefie's p'd off neighbours***

    Surely somebody has the right to bring their children out into their own backyard...so what if they scream, so what if they cry...

    Yes, neighbours should be courtious to eachother, so why didn't the old bat stick her head over and ask if OP needed any help with the kids?? Rather than creating an uncomfortable situation??

    OP - squirt her with the hose next time

    In all seriousness, ignore her. She probably thought her advice was helpful (clearly it wasn't).

    Living next door to a young family with little kids? Poor neighbours

    I can think of so many worse neighbourhood scenarios for these people due have to endure. The OP is not home all day with her kids screaming outside. It is a periodic annoyance for these people that happens maybe once or twice a day.

    OP, I think your neighbour is really rude. If it is a genuine issue for them, they should have the decency to come and talk to you about it like adults, not make snide comments over the fence.

    It's an acronym for "harden the fück up", primarily used by teenagers. I think Benji was trying to sound cool or ghetto or something
