[ - ] Camp counselor told me today that dd (almost 6) had a bit of an attitude problem and talked back to him. I asked the details and spoke with her directly after and then made her apologize but I'm mortified. She's usually the sweetest and nicest kid and loves teachers. She does whine (a lot) for me and dh but almost never with others. Do all kids go through this? It's so unlike her. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] We are a family of 5 (kids ages 6, 9, 10) who moved into UWS Broadway rental 6 months ago. Unfortunately our downstairs neighbor has complained twice now to super about our noise. We have rugs in every room and take our shoes off at the door. Advice needed to deal with crotchety neighbor!!! 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

This happened to us (and I'm sure many other families.) Our downstairs neighbors moved into a nice Brownstone building in Park Slope that was filled with children, and then complained about all of the childrens' noice. [ Reply | More ]

It's a hard answer but there really is no solution. Some people are just like this. Odds are the people before you didn't make much noise and your neighbor is just being a PITA. Noise, within reason, from below, above, next door are just part of life in the city but your neighbor may not accept that. You might see if you can find out what in particular bothers him and see if you can adjust some habits. [ Reply | More ]

Agree. Also, if people want to live in the city (the culture!) then they have to deal with neighbors above, below, and next door. If someone wants peace and quiet, then move to a big house in New Jersey. [ Reply | More ]

You never know - it's possible she has an interior room that she likes to hang out in that was always quiet and that rooms now just happens to be under where you all congregate. OR, she's learned to drown out the noise from outside but the noise from above is new and so aggravating. It's not anyone's fault - I'm sure you're being perfectly polite neighbors, it just is what it is. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My boss bought a home out in the countryside of Vermont where there were no high-speed internet cables for miles. Then he actually paid to have a line run from his house to a switching hub in Brattleboro or something, and he has a little routing/server room in his house now. How much does a setup like that cost? Like if you need to build six or seven miles of fiber-optic cable and some rights-of-way? I can't imagine it's cheap. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Soap is so much cheaper. Shower gel is half water and you have to get a few handfuls to wash your whole body. Total waste. You can also get mild soaps like Dove or Cetaphil. We use Dove or a dove generic. If you are concerned about dryness never use Ivory. Unlike the impression from the commercials or the name it is very drying.-Derm mom [ Reply | More ]
