I don't know her at all, and we're moving on Friday, so not terribly concerned about her knowing who has reported it. I'm planning on calling the police to report my concerns. I think that's probably not the first time she's locked her out from what my other neighbour has said - she said she heard similar in winter (in Canberra).
Were in two separate groups of duplexes. There are about 6 different people/families who could report it. I'd rather not run the risk that no one else has reported it.

I would call, unless you tell her you called you wont be at risk by police saying it was you

Hmmm, what was the mum yelling about? Also my DD often asks to go outside to play when I have something to do inside but will go out but scream at me to come outside, so that part wouldn't concern me.
It would depend on the content of her yelling as to whether I would call anyone. As much as emotional abuse is not on, as far as I am aware it's not an offence to yell at someone unless you are threatening them.
So yes I personally think calling the police would be over reacting if she wasn't yelling anything threatening to her child.

On the childrens help line give them all the incidents you can recall. Large and small. Your neighbour needs help.
Shouting and yelling at a child is not on. Yes there are times where a parent may raise their voice in an appropriate manner but what you describe does not sound like that at all.

Would you feel like it would be necessary to call if the little girl had been out there in 33 degree heat by herself, and had been crying/screaming for 5 minutes?

I think the fact you are concerned enough to ask means you should call. Go with your gut. Be over cautious than under. X

I'm just throwing out innocent possibilities. 33 degrees to me isn't scorching.
But if you hear her yelling at her daughter to go outside, then she opened the door and closed it behind her - that's a different story. If that didn't happen there's probably 50 explanations for what she did.
I just think in my mind, as awful as it is for kids to be yelled at, if they're not being called names or not being threatened, the police can't really do much about it.
Either way though.... poor child.

You never know. You would feel awful if something happened to this little girl and u didnt act. Too much in the news lately where children are being harmed by their parents. Id like to know id done everything i could to prevent an outcome like that xx
