Noisy kids making high pitched noises!

Hello parents,

I know your little angels are noise magnets and they have to play, but how about teaching them not to make high pitched noises?

I am close to going out and shouting at them as they have been making high pitched noises for the last 3 hrs!!!!

Re: Noisey kids making high pitched noises!

Kids hear higher pitches beyond an adults hearing, maybe start blasting out really high pitch noises no make them go away? Other options include shaking a walking stick at them.

Is there a portable lighter version? Would dog whistle work?

Note that rifle compensators are classed as a restricted firearm here, so you can get them but it could be a hassle. Probably easier to just tell your neighbours beforehand that there could be more noise, then less noise.

Re: Noisey kids making high pitched noises!

Looks like the kids shut up! They sensed the presence of this thread and the things I was planning for them.

Now I just need to take care of the fat couple who speak loud on their balcony at 2am!!!
Sniper rifle or send them fatty food to induce a heart attack?

Above or below?

Maybe a skunk sprayer? Just make sure your windows are closed...

I thought you would have a litter of 10-15 kids?
Yes, I don't want to have headphones on all the time, that also at home. If I close my windows then it is ok but it is hot and stuffy right now.

Tell them to have sex on a balcony.



Apparently it is like the riskiest place to do it.

Unfortunately in front, across a lawn. The noise from those flats travels directly to me at night.
I observe them all with my sniper rifle scope.

There is also a lady who is always drunk and talks loud on the phone at night. She wakes me up always.

Then there is the guy who either has many sisters who regularly visit him or he is very active on Tinder. No noise from him though.

Sniper rifle or send them fatty food to induce a heart attack?
Send them some toys so they got better things to do at 2am?






I would suggest a prayer rug, the classic multipurpose gift.

Re: Noisey kids making high pitched noises!

It's a phase. It will pass. If you have neighbours who's kids ages are arranged in a staggered manner and this is the first badge, you're in deep shit though.

Like the anti-cat thingies? I admit I thought about getting one of those once but - I didn't want to scare the cats away.

Re: Noisy kids making high pitched noises!

If you have a smartphone you can download a tone generator app to create the high pitched noise. Connect it to a bluetooth speaker outside and bob's your uncle.
You can then also get it to play baby crying noises to guilt the neighbours, or a dog barking, or porn or whatever you want.

PS. How are children noise magnets? I don't get it.
