My neighbors have loud kids. Can I say anything?
I have neighbors next door with two young girls. I grew up in a large family.. I know how loud kids get. These kids are exceptionally loud. They play outdoors almost all day (they are too young to be in school). They constantly scream, usually angrily or because they are crying. They shout back at their parents when their parents ask them to do anything. The parents more often than not, relent and let the girls do whatever they please. Is it inappropriate for me to ask them to keep it down? I know this can be an impossible request for some parents, but maybe it'd clue them into the fact that their kids are not just noisy, but sound hostile.

I would not say anything to the parents.
Unless it's after dark when they are acting up,I wouldn't say anything. Kids are loud. Some are just louder than others. If their parents let them behave that way,a comment from you won't change anything.
