I unfortunately live on the 2nd floor of my condo complex. My downstairs neighbor comes up this morning, pounding on the door saying he can't stand the running around anymore. I have my 2 yr old dd, another 2 yr old boy I babysit during the day and my 7 yr old nephew I pick up from school everyday. I seriously try to take them out as much as I can during the day, but the gas bill can tend to get pretty high doing that everyday. These people are generally nice and my dd loves them, but seriously what am I supposed to do? Duct tape them to the wall? They're freakin 2 yrs old, of course they're going to run around occasionally. I also can't help that my dd loves to dance pretty much non stop..Seriously, it makes me so depressed. I wish we didn't have to live here, but we just can't afford to move anywhere else right now.

Your kids should be free to run and play in their own home. Let them play outside (if there is a nice place in your complex) to give the neighbor a break from the noise, but don't make them miserable at home to suit anyone.
