I called and reported neglect tonight. My neighbors have been sending their 5yo outside at night (it was 11:25 pm tonight) to chase their dog. They have a pond around the side of the house with sharp rocks, no lighting and NO FENCE. This happens several times a week. I have spoken to the mom, and she blew off the danger. She also lets the 5yo supervise her 2yo for up to an hour outside on the weekend. NO ADULTS present outside AND the kids love to play by the pond. It just is scary. Mom is a nurse and I would think would know the dangers. But she doesn't seem to. Not sure how soon they will investigate, but the local office will have the report by morning. It feels strange to report someone, but I know that it would be horrible if one day one of MY kids went outside and found the little girl in the pond. What kind of parent sends a 5yo outside alone at 11:25 at night with no lights and no supervision? At least someone will talk to them about it. They also told me that if I see the kids alone outside I can call the police for an immediate response.
