Quoting Big D!:" I hate screaming children. How old is this kid?"


7 or 8 I'm thinking. He's been in school for the time we've been here. And is friends with the little girl downstairs and she's about that age.

You have no idea how old this kid is. He could be 12 and playing with his friends. This is not a reason to call cps.

Quoting Allissa Specht:" Yeah that's hard lol. Honestly, our apartments have a "quiet time all the time" policy. They encourage ... [snip!] ... complex by themselves. They harass the blind guy, trying to make him trip and fall, and laughing when he does. It's disgusting."


There was a little 2 year old playing alone in the street the other day in a flood drain, his sisters that were like 5 and 6 said they were watching him, mom told them to and that she always lets him do that. Then I saw him riding his trike alone in the street a few days later. I've wanted to call cps but by the time I got back out there, the kids were in, and the second time the parents were "out there" just no where near or watching the kids. But I'm torn on that situation too.

Oh and we had a similar one to those kids move out. They'd try and trip us on the stairs while my son was a little baby and we were carrying him. My mom's technically disabled because of so many back surgeries and injuries and they'd try and trip her and crap too. Thank god they're gone.... He was the kid this one was fighting with the one day and it almost ended in blood if I hadn't gone out and separated them.

Screw it and just call. They have to do a follow up investigation. I've started recording it when those kids are out there by themself.

OP said he was around 7-8. He's not 12 & playing with friends. He's outside screaming bloody murder for attention. Even screaming like that his parents aren't doing anything. How is that right? Even when they know its bothering their neighbors as well. Parents shouldn't just send their kids outside & ignore them when they are that young. It is a valid reason to call CPS. My mother had it called on her for the same reason & if it was valid 4 years ago I'm sure it still is now.

When my daughter does it, I try to figure out why she is doing it...I tell her there is no need to scream that way (usually it happens out of frustration) she doesn't know how to express herself otherwise and doesn't always understand everything I mean. I do whatever I can to make sure she stops though lol. Now in an older kid who fully knows what they are doing and can express themselves correctly, there is no excuse for that.

Quoting Hathor + A:" Depends. 1: What time of day is it? 2: How is the scream, like a having so much fun scream or mad murder scream 3: Where are there? Park? House? Funeral?"


Time of day.. 6ish at night.
Type of scream: Scream like someone was going to kill him or he was so mad he was going to kill them.
Location: Apartment complex common area. Usually between under my bedroom windows, outside my dining room, or just across the street. It varies.

CPS..really though? It isn't that serious. Yes it's annoying for a child to scream for hours but to call cps is ridiculous.

OP has had to stop a nearly bloody fight between this child & another because the parents aren't watching him. There's quite a few factors really. The child is being left unattended right around the time it gets dark while screaming his head off & banging on things. Calling the parent hasn't helped correct the situation. There's not much left to do if the parents won't parent their child when he's outside.

Then I think you are totally justified in calling his father. If it doesn't stop go to the management of the building. Don't call cps though it's not something to get someone's kids taken for.

Well that is a bit diff. I thought you meant about the screaming alone.

Rory was upset, tired and screaming tonight, and I told him "I understand you're upset, but we don't scream like that. Soon you'll know words and you can use those to tell me what's wrong, we need to use our words." And that's just inside during dinner lol. We do NOT do screaming. I understand loud talking, even squealing, laughter etc. But the moment he screams outside of the house, it's end game buddy.
