27. When I was growing up...
I had a mental list of which yards were "safe" and which were off limits. By abiding that list, my families relations with even gruff neighbors managed to remain cordial.

This kid has no such map, and his mom clearly doesn't value cordial relations.

Video tape your no trespassing signs before they get torn down. If you can, tape the kids in your backyard while the signs are still up. You might even tape while you shoo the kids off. You might luck out and get one ripping down a sign to show you what for.

Once you have evidence, call the police back. There's little they can do when it's just one neighbors word against another. But when there's evidence they have more options.

Sorry. Bad neighbors suck. Good luck.
