OP, be concerned with your own life and stop trying to dictate and control what others should or should not do.

If you ask for a welfare check and everything is OK, then no harm done. But if there is a problem, someone should know about. My parents kept us pretty isolated from everyone else, mostly to hide their emotional abuse and their own incompetence as parents. They did have some good qualities but they weren't good parents.

Totally understandable to keep the household 100% isolated, and from what you describe, the neighborhood is filled with people engaged in outdoor recreation. Maybe she (rightly) fears that people are not practicing appropriate social distancing, and that she cannot let the children play outside where there are so many people outside.

It has, however, been a lovely thing to see all the kids playing outdoors, and the families playing outdoors together.

The mother should worry about physical *and* mental health. I would be climbing the walls.

Maybe the parent is giving them reprieve while the nosey neighbor is powdering her nose.
Hurry kids outside! Old Mrs kravitz just went to use her toilet.

I can't imagine being so hypervigilent on what my neighbors are up to. Short of digging up the garden in the middle of the night.....or cementing a patio....

I don't believe it would be possible for my three kids to stay at home trapped in the house for that long 24/7. They would go nuts and act out. I don't even know if it is healthy to stay indoors 24/7 as kids. In my travels outside, I have seen more kids outside during the last four months than any time since I was a kid 30 years ago. The walking path near my home is jammed with adults and kids, bikes are sold out and everywhere, parks are jammed and kids are playing noncontact sports. But the kids next door remain trapped in their home 24/7. Your thoughts?
Are you keeping them under surveillance 24/7? Do you see them receiving food delivery? Do you know if someone in their home has immune problems? You don't know what's really going on next door and she doesn't owe you an explanation.

They could at least load 'em up in the car and go for a drive!

With it being a townhouse the family doesn’t have it’s own backyard so worried about being close to others. Maybe someone in the family is severely immune compromised.
