  • Myabe you, your dh and your dd need to sit down and have a talk, let each of you express any concerns you have. Let your dd tell your dh how she feels and what is actually going on in the neighborhood. Decide to figure out how to handle this together.

  • I'd be looking at new places to move. he could come with me or not but I'd be out of there. It's miserable to live in a place where you don't feel safe and can't go out freely and have fun with friends. Tell him you could rent it out (if you own your home and can't sell it) and move somewhere else. This is a great time to look for bargains on houses in great areas. Talk to him in economics (men like that). Show him a bargain and how things will work out for the best for everyone, even him with his family being happy once they move.

  • The neighbors stink so your daughter wants to move? I guess I don't understand why the neighbors are "isolating" you. I don't let my kids dictate to me what we are going to do.
