wow you really exaggerate it dont you? You never said anything to us. Its a neighborhood!! Kids are gonna ride their bikes and play ball, but they do it in the road. Not your vacant lot. So you install a fence and complain you cant afford it? Stop your whining. Dont install a fence; grow a pair, get your butt up off the sofa, and come talk to us if you have a problem w our children. Dont come in topix and just type behind you computer.
Who are you? You tell the OP to grow a pair, why don't YOU Grow a pair and sign YOUR name so the person in question CAN talk to you. Maybe they have already talked to everyone else. Maybe they can put a fence up if they want to. Bet you are the type that is going to retaliate because you are offended that someone complained anonymously on the internet, basically harmed no one, and said something that maybe wasn't directed at you or your brat(s). Because from the sound of your letter, he/she/they are brats and you are one of those parents whose kid can do no wrong. I would even bet that by your defensiveness it is YOUR kids trespassing and YOU know it but don't respect other people enough to teach them to leave what isn't theirs alone. After reading the OP's letter. I bet instead of asking your child to behave and not trespass you will start picketing and have a sit in in the aformentioned empty lot to protest your family's rights. You sound that dumb and entitled, and worse YOU yourself "came in on Topix" to complain so you are a hypocrite to boot.
Or you can just forget this whole thing and ask your kid to stay off other people's property and leave it at that. I doubt that will happen though, because you would have already and there wouldn't even be this post because you would know this neighbor wasn't talking about you in the first place.
OP move out of "Kennesaw Ridge" or whatever. With neighbors like these the property values can only go down. Worse than living by a paper mill.

PURE IGNORANCE was shown by starting this post and PURE IGNORANCE is being shown by keeping this going! Obviously, this person has issues and everyones "opinion" is not going to help their case in any way! MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIVES FOLKS! GO HELP SOMEONE IN NEED! This person needs to help themselves! That is what's wrong with our society! Stupid topics like this! There are people(children) starving and LIVING IN THIDER CARS! RIGHT HERE IN THE TRI CITIES! And we are wasting time with someones selfish complaint of children playing on their vacant land?????? ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? If you are that bored, go write a letter to a young soldier who is over seas saving us right now! Or to a family who has lost a young Dad or Father for what?????????? Many other ways to spend your time! I only visit this ignorant site on occasion to remind people of WHAT IS IMPORTANT IN LIFE! STUPID TOPIX MAKE ME SICK! WAKE UP!
Your sanctimony made my day. If you don't like this website don't read it. You wasted just as much time as any of the rest of us writing your self -indulgent reply, so don't even pretend you're better. Stop wasting your time trying "to remind people of WHAT IS IMPORTANT IN LIFE" and go write that letter you were talking about saving starving dolphins and hippies in the Midwest or whatever floats your boat,(my pet cause is conservation of Polar bears in the Sahara campaign FYI) and rack up those angel points! You will make a bigger difference there.(For the record I agree with most of what you said, just not the part about how you are trying to make a difference here.)

this dude is complaining about having to "drive around" kids...so i'm highly suspicious when he claims the kids are 'destroying his property.'
i think by "trespassing" he's talking about a kid running onto his VACANT LOT to retrieve a ball. it's not like they are out there with shovels burying pets or making mud pies.
this dude is obviously an old, miserable wack job. if that wasn't obvious to you by his bickering, then the neighbor's response should've made it clear that HE is the one that's not wanted in the neighborhood.
time to move into a retirement community, old man.
Keep your babies out of the street! I live by a dangerous highway in a neighborhood with private yards, and I still find unsupervised three year olds in the street! Apparently the funding was cut for teaching kids bike safety, because I see children weaving around the road, booking it hell for leather from their driveways in front of cars without looking first etc. But of course it is all the driver's impatient child hating ways that will get that kid killed for cutting in front of them at dusk wearing dark clothes on a bike with no lights and reflectors without supervision. Guess the money from the lawsuit will give comfort to their parents at the funeral.

I am curious to why people are commenting on here that do not know anyone in this neighborhood? If you wish to comment on someone else's business, why don't you read through the 105 posts? There is not one single person that LIVES in this neighborhood that has agreed with the original poster. She sadly has some issues and is a very unhappy person. No, there are not just "SOME wonderful people and children in this neighborhood", they are ALL wonderful people and children. Where did you get the assumption that the parents are not exploring and playing with their children? They do. Children also need time to play with other children, without the parents standing right next to them. It is called frienships and socialization. We are normal families, living in a normal subdivision, who just have to happen an unpleasant neighbor who feels the need to post her problems on a public forum. The end.
1. Because it is a public forum. If you want to exclude people who don't live in your neighborhood/have a different opinion than you, start a private forum.
2. I don't have to know this person, or decide that s/he is or not crazy/unhappy to know this could be about any neighborhood. Obviously you have never lived anywhere else to know this is a universal issue. If you feel like it is a great neighborhood good for you. If you taught your kids to stay out of other people's yards then your job is done, and who cares what the rest of world thinks.
3. You seem educated and well spoken, too bad you defend the wrong points.

Just out of curiousity what difference does this thread make? If I wanted to move to Kennesaw Ridge or whatever I really would not care that these posts existed. Of course it is far too elitist for me, what with all the Section 8 haters, and the Wa! My property value went down because of some child hating witch lives on my block and I won't be happy until she is thrown in an institution because this is a family neighborhood where we teach our kids "tolerance" and there is no room for the poor, the elderly, or disabled or people who complain about trespassers. I read all of these things from posters that supposedly live in your neighborhood.
What a great place.

Hey, I have a solution! Send all the kids over to my house to play on my property & I will make them homemade brownies & ice cream cones!
All the kids in my neighborhood come over to play on my property but either them or their parents ask permission first.
During the winter my field will be filled with children and their parents sledding & to me it is the most beautiful sight I have ever seen! Its like a winter wonderland to hear everyone playing and laughing.
U know what else? One day I fell in my back yard & couldnt get up because my whole right side had went numb. Guess who it was that saw me and ran first to help me? THE KIDS!
Dont forget when u were kids. There isnt anything anymore precious than a little child.

Hey Upset Mom after continuing to read the posts (following your second post but before your third) by the account of one of your own neighbors I can safely add the "Transgendered" to the list of folks who are not welcome in your Great Neighborhood.

You are afraid of people preying on kids in your neighborhood, frankly anybody that is interested in doing such things would not bother finding this obscure thread when it is easier to hunt in their own neighborhoods. You are naive if you think the majority of children are kidnapped/ molested/ murdered by strangers. More likely to happen with someone you know and trust. I would think an "Upset Mom" would know that.

The OP did not threaten or swear in their post. Other people have sworn at and threatened him/her. If I were the OP I would keep these posts up, because frankly I think there is more likely to be a hate crime in your neighborhood, or a lynch mob than anything else. This backlash and outcry would have me fearing for my safety. I would be crazy to remove clearly documented threats.

You did nothing wrong by trying to deal with problem, whats up with this naysayer (swinger)?? there's a role model for kids. The problem is the parents dont give a shit and they accept this behavior and if you present the problem to them they are offended. fuck em, tit for tat. Hold the parent directly responsible for thier punk ass kids behavior. I realize this is no help but take every opportunity to be rude to the parents who should step up to the plate and be parents and let them know they are responsible for thier kids behavior.

Just stumbled on this site during a google search since I was researching problems people have with neighbors kids. I have a rude kid next door to me and have been blowing off for quite sometime thiking maybe he would grow up at some point.. Finally mentioned to parent (dad) in the nicest possible way about his son being constantly rude and he was immediately offended and even called the cops on me so they could warn me not to talk to thier son.. What a joke. You deal with problem, make an effort, do the right thing, keep lines of communication open and you get nowhere. Who knew!

My wife and I have been looking to buy a house and was going to look at the house in Rebeccas Ln. After entering Kennesaw Ridge Johnson City TN into the Google search engine I discovered this post. I have a small child and we have been looking for a house in the 175 to 225 range. After reading these posts we will pass on this neighborhood. No need to reply because I will be busy living a life.

Please move if you don't like it here. This neighborhood is a great place to live. Your comments are hateful and hugely overstated. You chose to put up that fence, so don't cry about it.

Thanks for posting lies and messing up all of our property values (which your fence does as well).

I was looking at a house in this neighborhood and was discussing with my wife about making an offer. After discovering this thread when researching the neighborhood I think we will pass. It is absolutely amazing that you people can't discuss your problems with one another and resolve your differences, however I am appreciative that you made your quarrels public. This made our decision a little easier.

I Googled "disrespectful neighborhood kids" and came up with this site and quickly registered. Hey "swingers" your kids grow up and when they grow up with the disrespectful values you have passed on, its their cars and stupid loud dirty trucks that clutter up the parking all around. I speak from experience. The stupid non-parent on our block lets her youngster and his friends do just about anything they want, loiter, drugs, alcohol, huge sleep overs with girls - its really obnoxious once their get in high school. Now the retard is about to graduate and his friends are trashing and crashing at her house. Poetic justice?
Why don't you tell your kids to ONLY ride across YOUR lawn and mess up YOUR property?

No they are not. It's a good place to live. Just a set of parents who are letting their kids run wild.

I live in this neighborhood. I'm not old, or crotchety, and I don't hate kids. But these particular kids almost seem to go out of their way to be rude. They play in the street and in your yard, rather than their own. They stand in the street and stare at you, refusing to move and let you pull in your driveway. It's easy to read these posts and chalk it up to people being lazy or picky, or not liking kids. But honestly, you'd have to witness this to understand it. The person with the fenced in yard did have problems - these kids ruined their grass and caused erosion problems. I don't blame them for putting up the fence - wish I could do it too. But, it's not the kids faults. It's their parents. They do nothing about their childrens' behavior.
