We have new neighbours & for the past few days we've heard lots of shouting & crying coming from their home. On Saturday morning the eldest girl (7-9 yrs old) was stood in the rain without a coat & the Mum screamed at her from inside something like "go to the police station then!" The girl just stood there, after about a minute she walked back towards the house & said "I don't know what to say/where it is" & she went inside. A minute later the girl was back outside with a coat on & she walked away from the house again. The Mum was stood at the door watching & then she shouted "I'll call them you *****!" This morning I have just witnessed the Mum shout at the eldest girl "I hate you!" & then hit her. Then a minute later "I hope you get knocked down by a bus today" and then when her daughter said anything to her later Mum replied "Do I want anything to do with you? Exactly." The Mum always appears to talk like this in front of all 3 children (the youngest are prob 3 & 2 ish) but certain taunts are aimed at the eldest girl. Obviously I know I could stay out of this but I am upset by what the children are hearing primarily. It's hard to ignore because I feel for them but as it's right on my doorstep it's hard not to hear & feel upset & worried for them. Would you contact anyone? Social services? The police? Should I call Social Services- would they check the children are ok? Maybe the Mum is under stress & needs help? Or should I not get involved?
