    You might remember in the summer I was asking for opinions on what to do about a boy who was driving around my flat on his toy tractor, being very annoying, very close to cars and going up and down the back passage by my bedroom window... I was debating whether to tell him to go away...

    Well I was just washing up, and saw him right next to my car, with his tractor, edging closer and closer towards my car while not actually looking where he was going. I lifted the blinds and glared and he looked at me and then looked away and carried on, so i hammered on the window, and shouted "COME AWAY" with a big point. To be fair, he did go away, but he's gone completely so feeling a bit worried that he's gone home to tell mum or dad and that they're going to come and knock on my door now! Arrrgh. What do I do? I just snapped!!

    Are you a teacher?
    You must have a teacher's voice - y'know, that commanding tone which makes children do exactly what you ask.
    No need to shout - just be assertive.

    Yes I am. I just did it before I could stop myself. I've never told a child off outside of school before! I just said "COME AWAY" and pointed, so nothing to bad... :-S lol

    Put things in your window that give the impression you're a witch, he'll never bother you again.

    Or the local lynch mob will dunk you in the pond on the green and burn you at the stake.
