Interesting thread :)

I have new neighbors next door, and well, it's like this.  A woman, husband and a little girl (about 5 I'd guess).  Anytime I meet the woman she's lovely, smiley, friendly.  She likes animals.  I like her.  Then at nights she - obviously drunk - keeps shouting to her child, to her husband.  Telling her husband she's the one to make money and insulting him and putting him down.  Telling her daughter she will give her up on adoption, I know she hits her too.  I hear the gild cry every day, either about something serious or about any silly thing (they won't take her to the movies or whatever), because with all that she'd obviously becoming hysterical.

This many times late at night, up to 2, 3 am.  They're also often out on the backyard late at night drinking and talking and laughing loud, on weekdays.

Sigh.

That's horrible, and as a neighbor you're powerless.

I feel sorry for all of them, but especially the child. The adults can change their situation, but the child has no options.

That's so sad.

Yeah.  We called the police one night, because of the child.  They said they'd come but they didn't...

It's so sad to see how this woman is very nice, and then she drinks and kinda becomes a monster.  Incredible.

We have this service called 241-KIDS, where you're supposed to call if you know that a child is being mistreated, but the system is overloaded and there is no help for the children.

I worked in a school and there were children who would get dropped off at the bus stop and winter and summer and the parents wouldn't be there to meet them. The children would have to wait until the parent got off work. Calling the 241-KIDS didn't do anything.  A very sad situation.

Yeah.  They really do nothing... and children from abusive homes when taken away from their parents are often put in with children who've broken the law... so you don't even know if you'd just be making things worse.

It really gets me when people don't look at all the information before they make a decision & then when you tell them other things that would make their decision full they start getting abusive & treating you as though you're stupid when they aren't getting the full picture instead of listening to all the information given & taking it into account, respecting you for your opinion & stating that fact & agreeing to disagree & they won't see sense. I'm very sorry if my statement is unintelligible but when people get angry they normally go into fight/flight/freeze mode & sometimes they think clearer than normal & sometimes they can't think straight. I think my anger has affected my use of grammar there.

I know what you mean. I get frustrated with that too. I welcome new information but I find that many people get defensive and take new information the wrong way. I have to get on my teenaged son about that all the time. Sometimes when you try to tell him something he sees it as criticism instead of viewing it as knowledge.

I don't mind constructive criticism but non-constructive criticism is a different matter. If someone brings up information I didn't know or forgot about I take it into account & ensure the other person knows I've taken their information into account before I've told them whether I've adapted my opinion & why or why not. Then, I agree to disagree if necessary. I thought everybody knew this was the right thing to do. If I can do it why can't everybody else?
