I have two small children. We have two neighbours on either side and neighbours behind us. Our neighbours on one side (behind) have a fence and an inground pool. But to allow their children through they put a gate and latch to get through to our neighbours yard. The new neighbours behind us broke the fence between us so their children can cut through our yard to get to school and bike ride, but opening our yard to a busy street. Our other neighbour bought a large, friendly, jumpy dog...which has knocked over my kids. I have finally talked my hubbie into building a fence (when we came home on Sunday and 10 kids were riding bikes through our yard (and garden).
He is nervous about ticking off the neighbours.....how do I tell them?
