I am so sorry about your mom.  I hope you are doing better with your depression.  I think you should have a talk first with your children.  Let them know if ever they have any problems or need to talk that they should and can come to you.  As far as the neighbor as long as you know you are doing the right thing for yourself and your children there is nothing you can do about the neighbor.  Since the children stated you never do anything maybe try and plan some special activities or things to do together they just may be seeking out more of your attention.  I think open communication is most important allow the kids to talk about their feelings so that you can understand if they are having any problems.

Your kids must feel like you don't do much for them.  Do you know which child told your neighbor this?  Unless you don't feed them or do anything else for them, don't worry about it.  You are doing what you can.

 IDK...at that age kids have their own take on reality. At this point I would just try to understand why they all think I do nothing for them and attempt to put it in perspective for them as well as myself.
