They shouldn't be able to enjoy their property to cater to you. Got it.

You moved into the wrong place. You can't expect everyone around you to adhere to your standards at all times. If your standards are to not hear neighbors, don't move into a house so close to others.

This is one of those things that can get under your skin but a reasonable person needs to take a step back and realize that they live in an area where children are present and this will be temporary. They live in a subdivision where people are close together and that kids playing is a normal thing, it will only be temporary depending on the seasons and the kids age. Kids are going to play, they are going to be loud sometimes. Hearing kids play in a subdivision during the day is not something that you should let bother you.

I had a neighbor where I used to live that lived on a corner lot. I was on one side and the other side was a family with 3 kids that were always in the back yard on the trampoline and/or pool. Any yes they could be loud, and yes they interrupted my casual sitting on the back porch peace and quiet. My neighbor on the corner lot could not let it go. He would call the cops on them, he would cuss over the fence at them, if their ball came over the fence he would not give it back. He would come over and complain once a week about something. I realized how sad it was that he was letting that consume him. He should have just let it roll and put up with it, within a couple years the kids had moved on to video games etc and no longer played in the yard as much. The neighborhood was quiet. I kind of missed it.

If its that big of an issue to you then you need to move to a retirement area or move to a bigger lot in a more out of the way location.

Im gonna have to qualify my first reply. If they are just laughing and screaming, you need to relax, but if those little bastards are playing Marco Polo, you have a legit gripe.

If you said your neighbors dogs barked from 9am to 7pm everyday I could see you complaint.

Since you're on the Cape, lure a seal to the pool. The GW's will soon follow and problem solved. If that doesn't work, plan on showing the house to prospective buyers during the winter months.

here's some real advice. Deal with it or move. Otherwise you are going to constantly be angry about it and die early from stress and anger. I had a similar situation in my 20's with my first house. I felt I was in the right and the neighbor felt he was in the right, only way to be happy was move. Even if they agree to tell the kids to be quiet, any out of the blue eeeeeeek is gonna set you off. I know, I've been there. The problem is with you, not them.

9am to 7pm? every day? That's 10 hours a day that the kids are in the pool. Everyone knows that kids like to eat. And everyone knows that you're not supposed to swim for one hour after eating. So me thinks you're exaggerating.

Man, can you imagine how pruned up their fingers must be after 10 straight hours in the water?

I have a feeling you're also the kind of person who gets offended when someone asks if you need help at a boat ramp.

Don't worry about it your in Cape Cod, your 8-months of winter will be here very quickly, you will have 8-months of peace.

WTF is wrong with people??!!
To me, there is nothing more beautiful than the sounds of kids laughing, playing, and having fun.
But then again, I have kids and like to see them happy

Time for your old ass to move to a retirement community with no kids and nap time. Sounds like the parents are raising their kids right. Playing outside and enjoying the summer months.

That's what I was thinking too.

Back in the 50's, my folks were buying their first brand-new house in a big brand-new subdivision. They were a young couple and had three kids, a boy and two little girls, all under 5 years old.

After they moved in, they would watch as others filled in all the other houses that were built around them. Lots of nice neighbors and lots of little kids everywhere.

Some folks moved in next door. They had one little son and planned on having a couple more kids. A couple weeks after they had moved in, my dad was cutting the grass and the new guy next door was cutting his. They stopped for a break (and a beer) and were chatting at the fence and were talking about kids. My dad told him that he and my mom were planning on having at least 10 kids, because she had grown up in a big family and they both really liked that when everyone got together. (it was a lot of fun with all those aunts and uncles).

Two weeks later, the house next door was up for sale and they moved out within a month. They moved about 4 blocks away, and not in a subdivision. We lived in the house for the next ~20 years.
