We just got home from DS1's Karate class. Look up on the roof above our porch, and there is a 4 year old child. If he falls to the front he falls into the bushes, or the ground about 15 feet below the shortest height or 20-25 from the tallest.<br><br>
Oh, and did I mention it was like 8:15 at night.

No clue whose kid he is. He is either the kid of one of the roofers, or the grandkid of the guy who has been sitting for 2 days in a pickup truck watching and transporting the roofers.<br><br>
He showed up sometime yesterday late afternoon/early evening. Without even asking or consulting us they let him start playing with and/or on the kids toys, swingsets, powers wheels, ride on toys, etc. the whole time he was here.<br><br>
He has been here almost all day today, as far as I could tell. He sat in the pick up truck most of the day, was playing around with helping put gas in gas powered equipment....<br><br>
And now he has been up on the roof..Oh, and it also means he has been fairly close to electrical power lines, as they connect to the house about 2-4 feet above the roof line of the porch at the connection point....<br><br>
Needless to say, not a happy camper...especially considering right now, we are under a major Thunderstorm Watch, and they didn't put up any of the facia boards, so I will get water/rain into the attic now, which means soaking wet insulation, and then when they put them on in the morning, it is going to cause wood rot....

Um WOW! My DH will not even let our 14 year old up on roofs when he brings him to work in the summer! MASSIVE LIABILITY!<br><br>
I'd be having me a quick chat with that roofer for sure. Even if liability isn't an issue, the fact that he's into your stuff is not cool. The fact that he's in danger is down right wrong. Grown men fall off of roof's every day....at least let them know you're not okay with him on the roof at all.

No kidding! I would say something!<br><br>
Just today I was walking past a neighboring apartment and saw a three year old out on his balcony playing with a huge pair of scissors. I immediately said to him, "Do your mommy and daddy know you have those scissors? You need to take those inside to your mommy." Or something like that. The child shook his head no, and didn't listen to me of course. He hid the scissors in his pants.<br><br>
I was about to knock on the apartment door. I should have, but didn't.<br><br>
But if there was a kid on my roof, someone would hear about it.

Hmm, you are right.
