    Call social services. Not much else you can do.
    Its the only thing you can do. Besides its what they r there for.

    Calling a three year old 'all the names under the sun' - sounds pretty bad to me

    I'd say that if you do decide to call Social Security, make sure you do it anonymously, you don't want your neighbour to start shouting abuse to you if she found out YOU were the one who called them up!
    Good Luck

    If you don't want to contact social services you can contact the nspcc anonymously 0808 800 5000 and they will pass the details on to social services.

    I was in town one and passed this woman who was shouting at her 2 year old boy. He was crying and she shouted 'what are you? Some kind of puff?' I thought if that is what she is like in public what must she be like in private. Poor little kid. That that was a few years ago. I hope he is big enough to smack her round gob now, somehow I doubt it....

    yeah its normal where im from too....if all she's doing is shouting then make sure you say this when you ring social services. you dont really want to go round saying shes abusing her child when shes actually just struggling to control his behaviour.

    I don't see why it's any of your business. Anyway, its not like she's flogging him or anything. A little bit of verbal abuse is nothing to get excited about, I'm sure.

    Is this woman okay? I think not only social services may need to be called, maybe a councillor to see her aswell.

    You can't ignore potential abuse - this is only what can be heard by donna - who knows what happens at other times?

    Very resourceful. Or, be such a bad neighbour that the invective-spouters next-door have no choice but to move themselves to another neighbourhood. Just make living next door to you completely insufferable (to get you started: hose pipe through letter box, film pornographic videos noisily in the back garden, smash garden ornaments with a spade, be creative ).
