The OP or a friend can film it out of sight of the kids.
I guess I was assuming since op didn't think of that because maybe his elderly mom maybe doesn't have a smart phone. My dad refuses to have one, only has a flip phone for "emergencies". Otherwise if she had one op's mom probably w/have used it.

At least not in this country ... yet ...
3) You're ASSuming an awful lot by stating that the owners are "probably smoking weed or crack". The OP made no such statement or speculation. Try sticking to the facts as stated by the OP.


Oh the grammar and the spelling police and political correctness regime are back , oh how I have missed this LOL !!!! NOT ....Please get your head out of the clouds we all know these types of people they live in every neighborhood in America . You must live nice America where all the nice and correct people live LOL .

Even most modern "flip" phones have cameras in this day and age. Don't have to have a smart phone for a camera built into the phone.

Your post is incoherent. Trees do grow in AZ. You say it's an expense but you would do whatever it takes (except if there is an expense???). Anyway, I never said my suggestion was a single point of attack. I agree in doing whatever it takes and that should include considering a physical barrier/obstruction.

I have no idea what you mean by sheeple in this context. It sounds like you just heard it and were looking for a place to use it as a punch line.

Perhaps that's true, but until the OP provides proof that his mother's neighborhoods are those "types of people", your posts on that assumption are just plain nonsense.

Call the police, what's being described by the OP is assault.

One point I think is important, is OP’s Mom is older. Unless you’re an older or elderly woman living alone, it’s hard to understand. I’ve been in a similar situation with neighbors and always hesitated to do anything that might make matters worse I.e calling police.

If my situation had occurred when I was younger, with boyfriends who visited often, and a strong healthy body, I would not have hesitated to take more aggressive action. When you are a single, older woman, retaliations are very frightening.

Also, I absolutely believe that people behaving this way, know this and feel nothing will be done to them. I bet they would never allow their children to do this if this woman had a man living at the house. it’s a form of bullying weaker people.

So be a door mat? I can see how that could be effective. It WILL NOT get better until someone with authority steps up. At the very least a call to the police explaining what's been happening is in order and from there she might get some helpful advise.

Ironically, I said the same thing in post #41 in this thread, but it is the truth.
