How would you deal with a rude neighbor kid who is about 15 years old


A boy came by looking for my son who wasn't here. I opened the door my cat is around my feet and I was telling him that my son had left already. He tells me "woo I can tell you have cats it's overwhelming". Really? because the litter is clean and nowhere near my front door. Now I have a complex, yes we have several kitties we foster, but I clean after them constantly. Why would a kid that age say something like that. If my son ever offended someone by insulting their home I would be very embarrassed by his behavior. All the kids in this family behave this way. What happened to manners?

    That's awesome :) We have 6 and a 1/2 at the moment. I say 1/2 because he's a stray that we feed outside so he doesn't contribute to the problem lol he only comes in if its cold, he likes it outside the others are divas.

    I don't think I've ever seen an attack trained cat but it might be worth a try

    That's what I was thinking little ones don't have a filter and that's understandable, but older kids you would think would be polite about such things.

    definitely, I can tell coming from outside if a box needs attention usually. We try to be on top of them daily, but sometimes other stuff comes up :)

    lol I can relate. My 14 year old is terrible some days. He keeps his hair longer and the oily phase is in full gear lol. He showers twice a day sometimes and is still oily looking I hated that phase ;).

    Could be, but he was on my front porch not even in my house, so I can't believe it was that bad. I think just a rude kid :). It did allow me to remind my kids of manners and how we address people though.

    :) the funny thing is he has a habit of saying rude things to a lot of people I've found out and the parents don't discipline him. Their daughter is also rude, but in other ways. The one that is the friend of my son is ok so I deal. lol.

    This is true, it's really depleted social skills. Ironically the more connected we all get, the further apart we grow. My kids don't use twitter and only FB once in awhile not daily. I am glad for that!

    Yeah, I wouldn't do that, but still it is kind of rude. Part of me was thinking if it isn't clean enough for you here stop showing up uninvited all the darn time ;) - but I held my tongue lol.

    Thank you. Unfortunately, you're right about many kids not respecting their elders. There's a pack of teens in town here that will curse at people and the parents think it's funny - sigh.

    Thank you. I agree. I don't understand why parents don't teach kids to use some tact - but then again a lot of parents don't seem to have it anymore either.

    No, they aren't nasty and unclean if you care for them properly. I'm sorry your house reeked, mine does not. My cats don't pee on the floor and are trained not to scratch furniture and use a post
