Twice recently I have noticed that the neighbour below me has allowed their young daughter, I think she is around 2 ish cry it's little heart out, in fact cry is not really the right word, scream would be a more realistic description. This can go on for at least an hour or so. The sound is more noticeable because they have, hated by me, laminated floors, which reflect sound rather than absorbing as a carpet would, and will penetrate plaster board ceilings with ease given the rubbish sound insulation in the 1925 built blocks of flats. I do not think physical abuse is going on just some bizarre tough love learning regime. But it is not right that a child so young should be in such distress. For all I know she might always have behaved this way as for now she is sleeping below me whilst her own room is being refurbished and given that he has little get up and go when it comes to doing stuff around the house she could be in the main bedroom below me for some time to come and I certainly do not want to have to listen to and do nothing. I feel I should say something but it is a difficult subject to broach without seeming to be accusing or interfering.
