I didn’t want to hijack the other thread but my DD’s neighbours have complained about her and her children. She lives in an end terrace. During home schooling she moved in with us so neighbours had a very quiet time. She is a single mum and has two children both of whom have struggled with lockdown and Covid. DGD seems to get her ‘moments’ near bedtime as she is scared she will die in her sleep. She is distraught and yes, quite noisy, but not deliberately so. She is getting counselling at school about her fears. At the other end is DGS who has his ‘moments’ before school. He has recently been disagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum, and cannot abide any change to a schedule. E.g waking up at 7:10 instead of 7:00 means fifteen minutes of meltdown. No good explaining that one can easily make the time up. It was after this episode that neighbours complained. I should add that apart from these meltdowns, DGC are very quiet, not at all loud in their play or behaviour, no shrieking etc. Neighbours even complained when DD out in garden having socially distant chat with friend during daytime and was told to be quiet as wife on nights. I appreciate that but what if another neighbour mowing lawn or doing building work. Surely ear plugs would be the answer.
As a result, DD hates her house which has a lovely garden for the children to play, unlike ours, and only goes there to work from home. The family are now living with us again but it seems a shame that they are missing out on their own home and space.
I am really angry with the neighbours for being so unsympathetic.
(P.S. apropos of nothing male neighbour is a covid denier.
