Do neighbors give you stares or are there issues if any of you live in an apt building?

I live in a duplex and my neighbors on the other side have questioned things with my little guy sometimes, but I've been open with them that he's autistic (high functioning) and does things a little differently.  Mostly they were more amazed at the maturity in his conversations with them and stuff like that.

I used to live in an apt 8 years ago,  some of the neighbors would indirectly complain to others about my child,  so glad I was able to move to a home where each house is 50 or more feet away.

I couldn't imagine living in an apt building with my son...ppl would probably complain of his yelling and throwing stuff often.. lol

No our neighbors haven't stared. I usually don't take my child out in the front yard and most of the backyards around here are privacy fenced in so they can't see him anyways.

we had major issues with one lady one year when we lived in an apartment.

 

We moved to a townhouse and its nice not to have neighbors beneath us but its a very narrow townhouse that is stacked, 5 levels! It sounds big, but trust me, its not that big.
