How do you feel when other peoples kids cry on and on and on? What do you do? We have new neighbours they have few kids few that are older kids (10 and more) and a 4 year old girl. And that child can cry 24/7. When she is at home we never get 5 min of peace all you hear is her crying and screaming. And its not that she is hurt or in pain or something like that. Its because she is told not to do something. As soon as she stops she finds something to cry about and starts over. It is really geting on my nerves. And they never tell her to stop or anything. When my son does that he is told off. We make sure that neighbours are not disturbed and we do what we want to be done to us. Few times I have asked if she is ok and she stops crying so its not like it cant be done with her.

That must be irritating on your part not being able to live in peace in your own home. Maybe you could ask the parents to tell your concern with them. I think they are reasonable enough to hear your side and concern about their daughter. I think it's the parent's responsibility to discipline their children.

It is a sad note that they are not even concerned about it. Well I guess there must be some sort of problem with the child. I am not a child psych but if it that comes almost daily then there must be some kind of a problem in her.

She is a perfecly normal child her parents are older and she is the only girl and youngest child (we dont know what the story is with the boys that live there somethimes but they are not always there). She is very spoiled and has to have it her way all the time.

Good grief, I really feel for you. That would surely drive me up the wall. I remember when I first bought a flat in 1994 I had neighbours upstairs who had a 3 month old baby. The 2nd night I slept in the flat I was rudely awoken at 1.30am by this screaming baby and I nearly had a heart attack - it was so loud I thought someone had put a baby in my room somewhere and I jumped outa bed and tried to look in the wardrobe for this screeching child. I know babies cry and all that but geez, I went through the same old cr*p that new parents went through for months and months and couldn't sleep through a single night as this baby woke up screaming 4 or 5 times every night. I was never so glad as when they moved out a year or so after I moved in! If I wanted a screaming baby, I would have one myself - I know it's mean to be upset about a crying child but kids cry for a reason. I don't have kids and there's a reason for that - I would hate to have to put up with someone else's screaming child day in day out! Gosh, I sound like a real child-hating monster don't I? LOL Well I'm not, I adore kids and all of my friend's kids adore the heck out of me, I even get along with complete strangers kids!

I dont mind when a baby cries (except I have never lived in a flat) so I know that living so close can be a huge problem. But this is a big girl we are talking about babies comunicate by crying KIDS TALK and no one ever bothers to try talking to her. It is so anoying expecialy now for the holidays when they are all at home it is driving me crazy.

most of the reason why the children cry is because something is hurting them or they might be hungry..try to adopt a direct method and tell your neighbour that these may be the reasons why she is crying.

She is not hurt nor hungry they let her get away with murder she is the only girl and the youngest child. And she is used in geting her own way. As soon as someone sais no she cries. I have asked her so many times why she is crying and she would say "so and so said I cant play with water" or " I cant ride the bike outside".
