I hear the neighbor kids ( they are both under 5) screaming everyday ...
I hear them throwing atleast 3 fits a day ...
as soon as the dad gets home at night, I hear him yelling too.
it is annoying, the little girl screams at the top of her lungs !

Unless you actually hear someone being hurt, hit, abused, I would not call. Chances are they are just handling things poorly, but not abusing their children. My daughter pitches fits all the time and is not abused. She's loud, obnoxious, defiant and strong willed...and none of it came from abuse. Sometimes our voices are raised when dealing with her, and yet she's not abused. I do hope that there is nothing going on with your neighbor, as that would be awful. But involving social services because a child is pitching a fit is not fair. All kids are different and again, they may not have great parenting skills, but it doesn't automatically mean they are harming their kids.

Next question overall
How long of a tantrum do you consider normal for a two year old?
