to think that my neighbours kids should be in bed by 11 pm on a school night?

...instead of being out in the street, shouting, shrieking and generally disturbing the other residents?

They're 5 and 6.

Bloody hell! 5 & 6? Just sent my 14 year old DS1 to his pit as it's a school night.

What the heck is neighbour playing at?

5 and 6?

Hell yes. Even if they were 15 and 16 they should not be causing a nuisance.

5 and 6 years old, wow!

Some of my neighbours kids are out until then sometimes but they are usually over 10yo

I'd hate to think I was being a preachy 'bring your kids up this way' kind of person but I can't help but really worry about what effect it'll be having on their concentration at school - i'd be shattered if I stayed up that late on a school night myself!

Do they even know that they are out? Bet they are in the house pissed....and caring one bit. Poor kids sad

Ripeberry Mon 06-Jul-09 22:29:51

Meant to say NOT caring one bit

Nope, they are usually out in the street too. More often than not, causing an awful lot more disturbance than the children!

Nope, YANBU, the little buggers should have been in bed ages ago.

Mine went to bed late tonight, but they have broken up from school.

Are you sure they haven't finished school already?

Cataline Tue 07-Jul-09 08:20:10

SomeGuy - I'm certain, they've got another week and a half to go!

Whether they have finished school or not, 5 and 6 year olds should not be playing in the street at 11 o' clock at night.

It's worse in the holidays - they can be up until the early hours playing on their trampoline and splashing in the pool!

We have kids round here like that, although they tend to have gone in by 10pm which I still think is very late on a school night. My kids can play out, but within reason.

What people do with their own kids is nothing to do with me, but when they are disturbing my kids that have gone to bed at a reasonable time (8:30), it does get irritating.

Surely the poor things will be shattered for school.
