(TLDR below) So, I recently (a month ago) moved into a new apartment complex (super nice place, full of young professionals). My next door neighbors have 2 kids - one is a newborn and the other is around 3 years old. The baby cried a lot at first... but not as much anymore... which I'm fine with (babies cry). The 3 year old, on the other hand, is an issue... I made a noise complaint a couple weeks ago after she spent 2 hours one night running around, into walls, kicking doors, etc. According to the management, the parents said she had a friend over and was playing loud. Thankfully that ridiculous-loudness hasn't happened again... ...however... Now she lets out a loud scream every few minutes for about 1-2 hours... every night. It's not a constant scream, just a loud yelp every few minutes. Probably just playing loud or something (doesn't sound like she's getting abused or anything... just an annoyingly loud child) Thinking of doing another noise complaint - simply because it interferes with my own livelihood and it is nearly every night from 6pm-7:30 or so. The kids bedroom is right next to my living room... so watching TV, reading books, etc is difficult to do with her yelping. Basically when I come home from a long day I'm stuck hiding in my home office to avoid that noise until 8pm or so, when she finally stops. --- Part of me really feels like doing this complaint, but another part of me thinks I'm just being unreasonable. I've lived in apartments before and have dealt with noises before (music, talking, bed-hitting-wall-love-making) ... just nothing quite as annoying as this.... And before you say it - I haven't talked to them directly.... I've had bad experiences with that in the past and as a result feel more comfortable going through management. After the first complaint management told me if I have another issue they would pull the parents in more formally and threaten them a bit... which leads me to believe I'm not the only one who has complained.... but I'd hate to be the one to get a family kicked out... you know? So what do you think? Am I being the grinch... or does it sound like this is a legitimate complaint? --- TL;DR: Neighbors have loud 3-year old who yelps really loudly every few mins for 1-2 hours a night. Made one complaint already after a terrible episode. Should I do another, or am I being a dick?
