I'm taking their bedroom doors off the hinges ***UPDATE***
I just talked to my upstairs neighbor. Evidently while I was at work last night, the kids got into an argument and started slamming doors. It woke up his kids. He came down to ask them to quiet down, which they did, but my dd got belligerent with him, told him to mind his own business. I could definitely see her doing that, especially if she was upset. This guy is very nice and has no reason to lie. He has a 8-9 month old and a 5 year old who has sn.
I went and checked their doors and both of them have scuffs and scrapes on them. So I am going to remove their doors and put up blankets for one month. We have had other issues with door slamming when I am here.
Do you think I am being too harsh?
So they came home from school to find the doors down and blankets hung in their place. They were very upset. First, my dd tried to tell me that the guy upstairs was lying, (which I had talked to two other neighbors and they confirmed everything) then she tried to tell me that what I was doing was illegal. I was just ignoring her at that point. They went into their rooms and somehow "accidently" ripped down the blankets. I had them up there pretty securely, several nails in each. So I decided I am not putting new ones up there.
They later came out and apologized and I told them they would have opportunities to earn the blankets, then the doors back. Right now they are in their rooms writing me a report about how their behavior effects other people.
