Our neighbors are the type of neighbors that you do NOT want to have... in fact if we knew they were moving into the ouse next door, we probably would NOT have bought this house.
They are loud, in and out at all hours, live off of the system, do drugs ( openly) , say F*ck loudly and constantly, and most importantly they do not watch their kids !!!
I have called the cops on them twice - their kids have broken one of my windows, and vandalized our garage -- nothing is ever done about it......
a few days ago my mom and dad got my kids a new big wooden swingset ( we wanted to wait until after we got our fence up) ... but we told the neighbors that we prefer if their kids stayed off of it ....... of course they didnt and i have already told them 3 times TODAY to not be on it.... this last time the one kid was "bungee jumping" off the top playhouse thing with one of the swing chains....Before long I know one of them will get hurt and they are the type of people who will take us to court for "medical bills" ......
I just do not know what to do.... the cops wont do anything and wont answer questions .... I found out through a friend ( who is related to them) that they have child protection services called on them all the time but yet NOTHING has been done ( where we live, it is not uncommon for deadbeats to not be in "trouble" for not taking care of their kids) ....
moving is not an option ....
I acftually thought about getting ahokld of the people that they are renting from, and then one night i walk out to see him sitting in thier drive way smoking weed with them !!!!

Is it really hard to not ask a question anon so we can talk to you about this?? If you can't own what you say why do you think some other mom is going own her kids behavior?

Call the police, CPS and put up your fence along with a good lock. A swing set could be considered an attractive nuisance and your homeowners insurance would have to pay out on claims if you have not made reasonable attempts to keep them off of your property (not including asking them nicely).

Next question overall
How much do you estimate you spend on getting the kids back to school?
