We live on an army base, there are rules (that are supposed to be enforced by the military police) that kids under I think 10 must be supervised at all times!

So we have a neighbor kid a few houses down who is 5 that is never ever supervised. She never asks to use other ppls things, she just uses them when they (bikes, scooters, etc) are unattended.

When we first moved in waiting for our stuff (and her bike) so the neighbor girl was being nice and sharing, then her mom came out all bitch crazy yelling at her dd that my dd was riding her bike. So ive tried to limit the time they spend together.

So wwyd, let them play outside at the risk of neighbor mom going crazy, or tell your dd oops too bad?

I wouldn't limit time outside for my dd but I would limit who I let in my yard if you know what I mean.

I would tell the kids to stay away from their yard and if the neighbor mom goes crazy again I'd say something to her

Its just kinda hard because our houses are set up weird and litterally there is a circle of sidewalk all the kids play on. I dont have a front yard thats "mine" because of that.

I would let them play together if you are out there.  If she keeps going nuts, turn her in!

Bc shes never outside. And the one time I tried after the bike sharing incident she turned her back to me.

I'd go introduce myself to the mom and go from there. If she's a nutjob then I'd still allow my child outside just to play with her own toys in my yard but tell the little girl she has to play in her own yard with her toys so she won't get into trouble.

Ehh, screw it...Call housing or the MPs on her *ss....She needs to make friends with the neighbors and have someone keep and eye on her daughter (not only because it's the rule but for safety issues) or she needs to be outside with her kid.

 I wouldnt curb my DDs time outside. Its summer kids belong outside. If the neighb or comes out steamed walk over and be as kind as ou possible can. Kindness kills nuts like her.
