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!"
Yes I am saying that. Everyone is saying to fight these people. That is exactly what they are looking for.

What no one wants is an annoyingly nice neighbor. They will get tired of her in no time. The parents will take care of this in no time because they won't want the nice neighbor coming over.

Oh and I would come over at all times, early in the morning on a Saturday, Sunday evening, during the Superbowl, any time to be as annoying as ever. Always be nice though.

You kill these people with kindness and they will go away.

I think you need evidence, video evidence... and then police reports.
This! You already have it reported where you live. Install cameras and film it. Parents are responsible for the willful misconduct of their child(ren).

Move your Mom to a 55+ community. This kind of stuff never/hardly ever happens in those communities.

I see the wisdom in this approach...Sometimes you catch more flies with honey than vinegar my granny used to say. Asking the kids to help her with something could result in some new little friends.

That’s a nice thought, but in today’s world, that will not happen. She will be perceived as soft & weak & they will increase their aggression. As those “kids” grow into teenagers, it will get worse. The parents know what the kids are doing and they are not correcting it...that gives an indication as to how they will respond now & in the future.

I feel for the OP’s mom, I really do...I saw the same thing happen in my old neighborhood. If the neighbors are owners, the only thing her mom can do is pray that they get foreclosed on & move, or move herself, because she is outnumbered with no backup, unless there is exceptional LE in her area who will help her & stay on it...which is doubtful.

You are only guessing like everyone else.

A kid is actually just like anyone else. Has to have a reasonable expectation of privacy before photographing violates any right. Any kid throwing stuff over the wall has no such expectation.
What he said ^

I'd even go to the point of giving mom a go pro for her hat on top of recording cameras. If it were me, I'd make sure they knew I was all over it too. This is AZ and carrying a firearm is legal in case the dad wants to be a douche nozzle.
