Go to the parent forum mom netthe woman said her son was “on top” and she needed to let him burn off some energy and suggested he play in the garden.

But that was at 8.30am and her partner said that was a bad idea as then they would become ‘those neighbours’ but the mother wasn’t so sure.

She asked other parents for her advice and was soon snapped up as they all said they had a rule about not letting their kids outside before a certain time.

Speaking on the forum, the woman said: “The tiny terrorist is on one this morning and I said to my partner, ‘It’s okay, we can take him to the garden in about 20 minutes to burn off the excess energy’.

“He looked at me like I had two heads and told me anything before 10 or 10.30am on a weekend was unacceptable and would make us ‘those neighbours’.

“For context, we have two bonded neighbors, both with babies or young children, and ours is only a toddler, so it plays relatively quietly (though obviously not silently). So am I unreasonable, am I inadvertently the neighbor from hell?”

Advice soon came in as other parents pointed out that the woman’s partner had a valid point of view

One user said it was “unacceptable,” and another replied, “It’s a bit early.

“I would say nine for other neighbors who might hear it,” said another.

And another commented, “I would say 9.30am. Anything before 9 is definitely too early.”

Another mother gave a very lengthy reply, saying: “8:30 am isn’t terribly early, but it would wake me up and put me off. 9:00 am is ok but still a bit early.

“9:30 is better, 10:00 is really good. Depends on what else is going on. If someone else is mowing their lawn or has noisy construction work early then a noisy toddler won’t make a difference.”

The mum who posted the question seemed to heed the advice, adding: “Ok I’m being unreasonable haha. I think my perspective is skewed because I’m usually at work on a Saturday so I’m up and out at 7:30am.

“He’s only 18 months old, so letting him out on condition, not making noise, definitely wouldn’t work.

“Then it’s time to use messy emergency play indoors instead, since even CBeebies isn’t cutting it today! Thanks for the opinions.”
