I have to agree with this. This would sound more like a case of assault, no matter what age of the person throwing rocks is, and would be a police matter and not an HOA issue.

You all need to dig a little deeper. Back to another time.

What I would have your mom do is become that sweet little lady next door. She can recover all the cool things that the kids thru over the fence, maybe place them in a bag, and take them back to the neighbors home. Now she has to talk in a sweet tone.

Since it seems that they have some history she should tell the little darlings parents how wrong it is for her to get so upset about these sweet children throwing things in her yard. Let them know that she will be willing to pick up all the nice objects that have come over the fence and deliver them to the children.

If you can bake some cookies as well. Deliver those to the parents for the kids.

I bet in a month or less the problem will end.

What works is if your mom is the most annoying nice little women out there, when the kids throw something over the fence she should get it and walk over knocking on the door to return it. Talk as long as she can to these sweet people. Let them know that she will be sure to come back when the kids have thrown something else over the fence, and since your mom wants to be a nice neighbor she will spend lots of time talking to them at the door.

Exactly! Any of this continues as it did with my previous neighbors...call the police! I had a dog that barked a very friendly bark to try to get the neighbors to come by the fence sometimes - but for some reason they had an issue with this and would throw their trash at my dog. I tried to be nice about it by talking to them and they said they weren't doing it. I would watch them throwing it over through the window! Had to call the police.

Most HOAs have a general nuisance clause.

I agree with the others about the camera. They are inexpensive now, and I think you can even rent them. Place them so her yard is clearly visible. Next time it happens, call the police right away. When they arrive, tell them what happened and show them the film.

Gads, I miss the days when you could march over and talk to the parents and it would be stopped immediately.
Yup. These days the parents are most likely already aware, if not joining right on in with the kiddies.

OP please go to the police with this nonsense. This is beyond the scope of the HOA and they clearly not capable of handling this anyway. These brats are assaulting your mother, in her own home!

You can't possibly be suggesting that OP's mother bake cookies for children that are throwing things at her?

Apparently. I didn't see any sarcasm tossed around there.

That would only invite MORE abuse, it would tell the perps in very clear language that "I'm a patsy, keep abusing me, escalate soon please!"

One thing to consider is if you file police reports, and later decide to sell, those reports will be visible to any potential buyers. Since these people are classic A holes, this abuse may escalate to where moving is the only recourse. Your neighbors are growing a crop of kids just like them, which is scary. Your poor mom.
