I babysit my neice and nephew (5 and 7) during the week when they get out of school. When its nice out, I like to take them to the park down the street from me. But a lot of the time, a group of probably 15 and 16 year olds come to the park and completely make it a chore for the younger kids to play. They sit on top of the monkey bars, sit or lay on the slide and text. Take up the whole row of swings, and don't even swing on them. They are loud and obnoxious and I've heard them swearing. Some neighbors of mine have had the same problem and some have even asked the teens to please move and they won't. We don't know where they live or who their parent's are but they have become a problem for the other kids that come to the park to actually PLAY. What can be done about this?

Absolutely not!! While it may be annoying to people with younger kids, what exactly are teens supposed to do to keep themselves buy??? We don't want them having sex, we don't want them home alone, we don't want them at the park?? There just isn't much for teens to do to keep themselves busy- it seems ridiculous to take away something like a public park!!

Honestly I think so, its annoying when I go up to the park with my kdis and there is all these teenagers hanging out, blocking the slides, and smoking! I hate it. I end up having to yell at some kids every time. Stuff like, "Get out of the way", "Can you move you leg", "Hes trying to get through", it really upsets me. They think they are so "cool" smoking and getting in the way of the little ones. It irritates me A LOT!
