My neighbour’s 11-year-old son wants to play with my toddler, I barely know them so obviously said no – now life is hell | The Sun

WE all dream of getting on with our neighbours and hope our kids will get on with theirs too.

But one woman has been left in a sticky spot after refusing to let her neighbour's son play with her toddler.

The mum, who remained anonymous, took to Mumsnet, wondering if she was unreasonable for not letting him play with her child.

She explained that she had recently moved into the building, so didn't know her neighbours very well.

Not only that, but she thought it was odd that an 11-year-old and 13-year-old would want to play with a toddler who they have nothing in common with.

She explained: "So we moved into a flat about 2 months ago with our 2 year old. The last 2/3 weeks I've had the downstairs neighbour's sons asking me repeatedly if my son can go and play with them. For reference, I don't know them at all."

The mum said she found it 'slightly odd' the boys wanted to hang out with her two-year-old, but didn't want to make things awkward between her neighbour.

She had also been warned by other neighbours that the two boys were known to be 'rowdy.'

One neighbour told her that one of the kids had put dog poo through her letterbox -and were generally known for hanging about outside all the time, getting into trouble and vaping.

The mum had told the boys no multiple times, but decided to give them a chance and told them to wait while she grabbed their things and headed out with them.

But she was left stunned when eldest became frustrated that she was coming along too.

"The eldest was getting annoyed and said he would be taking my son out by himself?! I declined, shut the door and thought that was that," she adds.

Unfortunately, that wasn't the end of it as the boys' mum decided to give her a piece of her mind.

She asked the mum: "what am I playing at, and what my problem is. Increasingly getting angrier.

"Shouting, swearing, I eventually managed to get rid of mum but only because my DP had returned from the shops by this point and told her to leave or he'd involve the police."

Now the mum is concerned that the family won't leave them alone and that it will cause a lot of issues for them.

But many Mumsnet users claimed the mum did the right thing by saying no and that there was no way she was in the wrong.

One wrote: "Super weird, a tad creepy and I would keep calm and just say no, given the age gap you don’t think your son would benefit."

Another commented: "God no. That’s really weird behaviour by all of them. Massive red flags.."

A third penned: "Just keep him close. Tell the boys and their mum, if they ask again, that he is shy. Sound like neighbours you need to keep distanced."
