Have you ever identified a neighbor's child as a bad influence on yours? If the neighbor's child tended to be loud, blatantly disobedient, use foul language or had even possibly been exposed to inappropriate adult behavior (from the parents). What did you do about it?

Yes, once. He wasn't so much a bad influence be he was stealing from or son. Very difficult because his Mum and I were good friends. Thankfully they decided to move to a bigger house, so the problem was resolved without any bad feelings!
Only once.
The child in question was 14 yrs old, and was doing some very disturbing things.His mother told me, and that I should be aware.
I later told the boy, if I saw him with my son I would be very upset.
I asked him if he understood, and he just smiled at me....He was doing sexual actions on his younger brother.
I looked him in the eyes, and told him he did not want to do anything to my son. I would call the police.
By the time I had finished he was no longer smiling.He knew I was very serious.
I'm not sure. I suppose I will cross that bridge when I get to it. I suppose it would depend on their ages, what s/he was doing, and what sort of effect it was having on my son/daughter.

I've been in a few situations like this, and it was pretty frustrating. However, the issues involved weren't too bad and I never brought it up with the mother or child.
