小编摘要:因为在自家院子玩耍太吵闹,4岁的小男孩竟然被邻居投诉到地方当局,而他的父母也将面临巨额罚款。玩耍是孩子的天性,这样的严令是不是过于苛刻了呢?

导读:像大多数这个年纪的男孩一样,Alfie 可以每天花几小时在他的花园里快乐地玩耍。但当某位邻居向地方当局抱怨说他太吵闹之后,这个四岁男孩的游戏时间可能马上就要结束了。他的父母甚至还被警告说:如果Alfie不保持安静的话, 他们将会收到(噪音)消除令,甚至可能面对高达5,000英镑的罚款。

Like most boys his age, Alfie Lansdell can spend hours playing happily in his garden.

But playtime could soon be over for the boisterous four-year-old after a neighbour complained to council officials that he was too noisy.

As a result, his parents have been warned that if he doesn't keep quiet, they will be issued with an abatement order and could face a £5,000 fine.

Last night, they reacted furiously to the letter from Hull City Council. 'We were so shocked when we got the letter, then we just felt angry,' said his father, Simon, a 35-year-old engineer.

'Alfie is a lovely little boy. He likes to play football and skittles and play in his sandpit.

'He's like any other four-year-old. All children create a bit of noise when they play, it's natural.

'Surely a child should be allowed to make a bit of noise when playing in his own garden? It's the summer holidays, for goodness sake. I just can't believe the council took this complaint seriously.'

He said that they had tried to explain the letter to Alfie and he was now trying to play a little  quieter. But he added: 'He's only four. He doesn't realise.'

The couple, who have lived on the street in Hull for five years, are unsure who made the complaint. But their immediate neighbours are standing by them.

Emma Ward, a 26-year-old student nurse, said: 'It is nice to hear children playing out. The council haven't got a leg to stand on.

Mother-of-two Carla Chester said: 'Alfie is no different from the other children who play out. It is disgusting they have been contacted by the council about him.'

Alfie's mother Pippa, 31, said: 'I always watch Alfie when he plays in the garden and he's never that noisy. I don't understand it. The weather's been so bad he's barely had a chance to play outside.'

Alfie, who starts primary school next month, has always played in the 8ft by 8ft front garden at the family's end-of-terrace home without a problem until now.

But the letter from the council's environmental health team claims he is a 'noise nuisance'.

    neighbours never tell you anything straight away in western countries, because it is not their duty to teach how to do anything.
