We live in a neighborhood with lots of kids & lots of family pets. We are definitely part of the group as we have 5 kids, 3 dogs, & a cat. Unfortunately, the house next door to us is occupied by an older woman with no children or animals in her house. She is obsessive about noise control & people on her lawn. And we get blamed for everything! If any child in the neighborhood touches her grass, she comes over & tell me my kids were in her yard (never mind that my kids were inside). If any dog in the neighborhood barks, she will come pound on our door telling us to shut up our dogs. How do I tell this woman that not everything is our fault? I don't want to start a fight but my kids don't go in her yard & my dogs don't bark that often. I'm tired of being blamed for everything just because we live next door & have a big family. It makes me wonder who she blamed before we moved in!!! I need help being nice here.
