Good humid Thursday morning to us all, from this side of the planet. The mighty sun is shining brightly and humidity at 65% is high that even though I am inside the house, I can feel the stickiness of my skin. Our neighbors to the left are not quiet at this time of the day. Ther 3 toddlers are crying so loud because their grandmother Ju, keeps on shouting at them “to keep quiet”. Ju takes care of the kids of her children, who are out working. The cries are so painful to hear because it is as if they are already choking due to excessive loud cries. All the more Ju shouts at them. Ju also cooks the lunch, bathes them, and prepares and fixes their plates. I know it because we are just separated with our cemented fence. This is the neighbor that I had some discussions about, in bubblews and in this site too. Ju is already a widow, and I saw her husband brought to the medical ward when I was on night shift with my students, many years ago. Sometimes though, the toddlers chuckle and laugh with their grandmother, but most often, they cry. When they cry, we talk aloud to Ju and say “what is the matter with the kids”. There is no body abuse though; they just cry. Can you handle crying kids?

@LadyDuck yes that is true. our neighbors at the right side of our house has my female friend a grandmother to a few kids, and they are spoiled by their grandparents.the father of one family, and the mother of another family though are very strict to their kids and they even whip the kids with a small stick so the grandmother approaches the kids and scolds the 2 parents.

If their are a lot and it takes too long to get them to stop, then I get tired of hearing it but usually they can be quieted.Sometimes it takes a quiet game and if she whispers to them, kids tend to be quiet so they can hear what your saying.
@Aquitaine24 that is what i mean. why should they come to our house? they have only 2 rooms in their house. i think you did not understand my response, to wit: "their house has only 2 parts: the living room and the bedroom. kitchen is outside their house. so, the kids only go to the living room or the bedroom." ---so, i am referring to their house, not ours here.
@allen0187 really? oh, now i get it. i recall my kid brother during his college years. he cried while resting his head on my shoulder. my son too, when he and his GF broke up. i agree, it is harder to deal with adult kids who cry, because we might cry too, with themm
