I live in Nothern VA. I also live in a townhome-3 months ago this single mom of 2 kids (ages 12 and 3) moved in. I noticed she will leave them alone day and night for hours and at times overnight. She never takes them with her to shop, go to bars, or out of state. She also has been bullying/verbally abusing others kids when they are in the public playground. She will tell them they are not wanted here, bad human beings, and she feels sorry for them because they are bad. These kids are in the age ranges from 2-10. One parent went to confront her calmly and ask why she is so verybally mean to his kids. She said she had every right to say what she wanted. He then calmly told her not to ever talk to his kids or anyone kids like that ever again. She laughed and got in his face and he asked if she was going to punch him. She then ran up to his kids and started screaming at them and he called the police. I witnessed this from my house--I can see the playground from my house. She then ran to my property and banged on the glass door and started screaming at me and I thought she was going to break my glass door. 15 Min later I heard her laughing about it to one of the neighbors what she did to me and the parent. I have lived there over a year and get along with everyone. I as well as other neighbors suspect she may be mentally unstable. Two weeks ago she approached me and gave me a piece of paper with a guys number on it and said to call him because he was her lawyer (I googled him and he lives in ID) and she was going to hold me liable and sue me for her life, kids life and her home business she is starting. I asked her what I have done because I honestly had no idea and am still confused about the "accusations". She told me to stay away from her and her kids which I do. I don't say anything I walk into my house with my two little kids and close the door. Since then she has had her two kids approach me and tell me I am a bad person. I have told my kids not to talk to her or her kids (I am trying to diffuse this situation) and my daughter was outside and she tried (the single mom) to talk to my daughter who is 4 and my daughter said she could not talk to me. The single mom then told my daughter not to listen to me and had no right to listen to me but should only listen to her instead and she could talk to her and my son as much as she pleases. I'm at the point I don't want to bring my kids home. I go home late. As soon as I drive up she comes out and stands there and glares at me like she wants to kill me. It is very scary. I was home one day (daughter was sick) and she saw me upstairs and dragged her kids and their bikes and toys and started being so loud until I closed the blinds. She continued for 20 min. She stood outside my front yard for 2 hours just pacing and looking at my house. What are my rights to get her to leave me and my family alone? The neighbors suspect she may be in "hiding" she is overly paranoid...tells people (from the day she moved in) she is convinced everyone is out to hurt her and her kids). Can I file a restraining order? Is this harrassment? Thanks.
