My kids and I live in an apartment buiding, upstairs. We were next door at a neighbors apartment letting the kids play. After awhile we took the kids bikes outside so they could ride them and we found a huge mess. One of our downstairs neighbors recently moved in a little over a month ago and she has a boy and a girl ages 5 and 6.
We came outside and these kids had toys everywhere (which is normal but its against landlord policy because it looks messy) they had food everywhere, like melted popsicles and cupcakes. They had markers and paper everywhere and were writing all over the side of the building with permanent markers! There was a huge cake sized cookie with icing on it, one of the kids said it was their daddy's birthday, that was smashed all over the sidewalk and the grass.
Their mom was nowhere in sight. We knocked on the door and got no answer. The kids kept getting stuff out of the freezer so the door was unlocked. We called the landlord and the office managers came by and knocked on the door and asked the kids to go get their mom. A man answered the door and said she was sleeping. This man was her boyfriend and he had just woken up. The landlord said this person had also received an infraction a few days before for unsupervised children. The landlord was on the phone with CPS explaining the situation last I heard. I took my kids inside my apartment and all this is still going on. Poor kids, their mom and her boyfriend were sleeping (at 2 in the afternoon!) and they were left to feed themselves and whatever else all day
