Today, my neighbor yelled at me because her two kids got into my pool. They scaled a two-meter wall to get to my backyard. They used a tree in her yard that hangs over the wall. I guess I could install razor wire on top of the wall. FML

I'd tell her the next time they do that you're calling the cops for trespassing. She'll get the message when you actually do it. I hate parents who make excuses for their kids' bad behavior and blames everyone else.

I would put cactus after your two meters fence. Or security camera. If you can catch them on video, 1- you will be able to prove your innocence if there is an accident, 2- you sue her for trespassing if you want

Great answer, SM79. only thing I would add is to start it with "STFU, neighbor. Your kids broke the law."

The sorriest part is that in most of the US at least, if one fo the kids drowned, the pool owner can and will be held liable in a civil case.

Property owners aren't responsible for trespassers getting hurt, unless you have things in your yard that are specifically designed to cause harm.

So, fence or no fence, it's her problem.

Sounds like she's just at her wits end trying to keep her kids in line. Often trying to enforce rules for your kid is harder on the parent then it is on the kid.
