....gonna play devils advocate a bit
The writer does raise a good point. If her kid is disrupting the neighborhood should the neighborhood not have the right to peace and quiet?
If this was an healthy kid we would expect the parent to shape up and make sure your kid is not bothering people. Should there be an allowance for special needs children to create disturbances to other people in the area. Going to add a bit of other lines of thinking to this, how do you sell a home when this child is making noises like that? You have to wonder if you would loose money on your house due to regular disturbances when trying to show it.
I am not supporting the other points in the letter but you have to wonder if her home is the right place for a child with special needs. Maybe the parent is not doing a good enough job.
Just something that crossed my mind.
