Neighbor problem- update
[Return to Topics]

Thanks for all the suggestions.

We decided that we didn't want to deal with the neighbor- this is definitely intentional (he hauls his manure 3 miles from where he milks- past both his and his father's farms to put it by my yard). I spoke with the detective who handled my daughter's case-he told me that the DNR handles these situations, but the sheriff's dept would be happy to take a complaint, so it is on file if the harrassment escalates. I did report it to the DNR, they are supposed to be sending a warden out to follow-up.
In the mean time, the pile grows larger as he brings a fresh load at 10:30 each morning. Unfortunately, he has plenty of cows to provide an ample supply. I'll just let the warden handle it from here.

For those of you that expressed concern- Yes, my daughter has been in therapy and is doing very well. I have told the school that my children are not to be in classes with any of the kids from this family and they are very willing to work with me. I'm trying to head off trouble there. My hubby says my protective mommy hormones are working overtime.

Thanks again

I'm surprised the protective daddy hormones did't attempt some knee cap breaking or worse. Years ago, I caught a distant relative holding a niece in a strange way. I took him aside and explained that if I caught him doing anything again, I'd make sure the next family gathering was for his wake. I also told his father and suggested counseling. I haven't seen either of these two for fifteen years, which also doesn't bother me in the slightest.

I'll second what Ron,Ar said and add that I do hope you give us an update after the DNR get through with him. And tell your dear husband that there is no such thing as mommy hormones working overtime. Moms are given just the right instincts to do our jobs of keeping the kids safe, if we listen to our intuition real closely. You are absolutely right to keep your daughter out of classes with this family, as she would only be harrassed by those kids. Shoot, the neighbor acts like a kid himself, can you expect his kids to act any better?
