Why do you think moving to a new school automatically results in no bad situations?

They could move next to a couple just as bad or the bad couple could get mad that they tried to run away, hunt them down, and hurt them 10x as bad as opposed to if they stayed.

If the couple was willing to break their windows down, something tells me they aren't going to just accept that their hated couple moved.

Is this other family willing to move 500 miles away? 5 miles away isn't going to cut it if the threat is as dangerous as everyone thinks.

If it is not a dangerous threat, why move in the first place?

Do you move every 3 months?

Most people are locked into a long term lease with a 6 month rent penalty if you leave early.

Most people can't just swallow the 6 months rent like it's no big deal.

It's also the kind of thing that can ignite a bad situation into an explosive situation.

If they're not going to move, you don't file a restraining order.

A criminal doesn't care about a piece of paper. They don't plan on getting caught.

Your kids are super young. Moving mid school year won’t be a big deal for them.

No, but I went through it. Millions of other children have survived it, and I teach elementary. It happens all the time.

How many fights have you picked today?

Millions of people have dealt with unsavory neighbors too.

What does that prove exactly?

That you personally were traumatized by a move (and I suspect it was NOT the move but other issues that, at that young age, you conflated with it in your mind) doesn't prove anything, either. Note that many other people on this thread (including myself) moved multiple times with no ill effects - you can't insist that we all go on your isolated experience rather than that of many others.

Are you an unsavory neighbor, perchance?

Moving isn't like returning a dress. You can't just do it over and over and over.
Who's to say a meteor won't hit the earth in the next twenty seconds and obliterate everything? You don't stay in a bad situation just because the next one might be worse.

And technically you can move as many times as you like as long as you have the means to do so.
