Parents In Shock After Note From Neighbours Complaining About 'Noisy' Kids

An Aussie mum was left reeling when she received a note through her door from an angry neighbour complaining about her 'noisy' children.

The note, which was signed 'your concerned neighbours', urged the parent to keep her children indoors before 9am so they're not woken up 'too early'.

The mum, who lives in Mosman in New South Wales, shared the note on Facebook where it's divided opinion.

The note reads: "Noise complaint. Please refrain letting your kids out to the backyard before 9am.

"Congratulations on your renovations.

"Your neighbours have endured many months of construction noise and now we're being disturbed by your kids in the backyard early in the morning.

"We wish to request that you keep your young kids indoors until 9am.

"There have been many occasions in recent times when your kids are out in the backyard early in the morning and they have been very loud and noisy.

"They are disturbing the peace in the neighbourhood and waking people up.

"Sometimes they are out very early around 7.30am and unfortunately they have very loud voices. Your son in particular is always screaming at the top of his voice.

"Kids will be kids but I'm simply asking if they can go out later so your neighbours are not awoken too early in the morning.

"Thank you for your co-operation and appreciate your kind understanding."

The note proved divisive on social media with some agreeing with the note writer and others branding the note 'disgusting'.

One person said: "I think parents of young children forget what it's like to have a healthy and sufficient sleep cycle so they decide that everyone else should suffer with them."

While another wrote: "Seriously! We are in lockdown. My neighbours have four boys and they are out very early and I feel nothing but compassion for them.

"I know how hard it is. I have two girls and my experience is different but in these times we all need to show a little patience."

A third added: "What a joke, construction starts at 7am where I live."

A fellow parent said: "I have two kids and I never let them play in the garden until around 9am. I think it's really inconsiderate."
