This is kind of off topic for this board...but this problem is making my health worse. I come to you with this because there are some very bright people here. Please help me if you can. Last month, our neighbor rented his house to two 17 year old boys and a 16 year old girl. I was pretty surprised when the landlord told us he was renting to kids this young, but we decided to withhold judgement of the situation until we saw how the kids handled it. Eeeek! Our quiet little neighborhood is now a nightmare! We have dozens of kids in and out at all hours of the day and night. Their cars are clunckers and therfore make a LOT of noise. To add to this problem, they BLAST their car stereos so loud that the whole block is awakened by the thumping base everytime one of them drives by. Nobody is sleeping anymore. I just got back from my evening walk and an elderly lady TWO BLOCKS AWAY came out of her home as one of them roared past in their loud music filled car (at 11:30 pm). This poor woman states that these kids wake her up all the time and she's ready to put her home up for sale to get away from it! Does anybody have any advice for me? We just purchased this home 18 months ago. It's my dream home and USED TO BE in a quiet area. We don't want to move, but can't live like this, especially with summer (and open windows) around the corner. Before you suggest we talk nicely to these kids, my mom, who is currently staying with us asked them to please quiet down last night (at midnight). She got mouthiness and louder music in return. I don't know the landlord well as he only ever rents and I'm not sure how to contact him anyway. Does anybody have any experience with CPS? Can they get involved in underage kids living in a situation like this? The stress of this has my muscles tight and sore. I'm not sleeping and I'm starting to get really grumpy from being tired. Please...any advice is welcome.
