A Program To Help You Deal Effectively with Teen Problems
WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT MY NEIGHBOR'S TEENAGER?
Our neighborhood of single family homes all have garages on an alleyway shared by other homes. This teen has been using their garage as a social hangout for some time. Her friends park their cars in the alley (forbidden by posted signs). On weekends our trash bin is filled with empty beer cans. The teen's mother was receptive and friendly when approached but basically suggested we talk to her daughter ourselves because she herself has been "ineffective".
The police have taken reports but the behavior continues. What can I do?
