There is a girl that lives down the street from us. She has 3 kids like us, one is 8, the other about 6 or 7 and then t he little boy is 3 almost 4. These kids run wild all day long. A little over a year or so cps was called on their mom because the little boy was running wild, butt naked. Someone called the cops and when the got there the boy was already home. The mom is my age 28, but she is a bit of a junkie. She is always walking around with her boyfriend,a nd her eye are always wandering, like side ways and half closed. I am not sure what she does but I know that her parents have the kids most of the time, which is probably better. Anyway the whole point is, the kid walks into our yard, our front door is wide open since the screen door got ripped off the hinges well anyway the kid walks into our yard(the little boy) looks right at my DH and picks up our DD's big purple ball and tries to leave. He yelled out the door and I had to go get it. The other day we came inside and he tried to make off with our little trike. I have a feeling when my son and his friends Nintendo ds's went missing he was the one who took them, because he was around. Sad, Teach your kid that stealing isnt good or CPS will be back at your house junkie.
Sorry Im just ticked off at the lack of parenting MOST of these kids have around here. Makes me even more anxious to get the HECK out of this place.
