If you have one family of children who are not bathed, disciplined or have a handle on basic behavior (think it's ok to hit, kick and choke, etc), how do you keep them away? The mother doesn't listen, and the neighborhood has called CPS on them before. If she sees any other kids outside, she sends hers over. The other kids don't want them around, the parents don't want the responsibility of watching them (and we've flat out told them that - they've never even asked, or met half of us). It's at the point now, we start making our kids come back inside when they show up - which is outwardly rather mean to those kids (they don't know any better), and not really fair to the rest of the kids stuck inside.
Tonight I had to negotiate with a 2 year old (running wild, unsupervised) after chasing him half a block to get back one of my son's toys, while trying to keep the 2 year old beating my son with it in the process. This can't keep going on.
