The parents of three Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Que., children say they are “really troubled” by an anonymous letter left in their mailbox last Friday that says neighbours "are exasperated by the screams of your children."
Sarah Cloutier says her kids aren’t perfect and scream from time to time outside, but they mostly play like normal kids.
Cloutier’s daughter Laurence, 7, has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and said it’s believed her four-year-old son Olivier also has the disorder.
Her eldest son, nine-year-old Antoine, doesn't have ADHD.
The letter was penned by a single author but alleged “many” neighbours found the children spend most of their time outdoors screaming and yelling.
“Many of us are exasperated by the screams of your children. We even think your children can only express themselves by yelling and don’t know how to talk,” the letter reads.
It said the situation was becoming "unlivable."
The letter was a blow to Cloutier and her husband, Guy Doré, who, she said, are doing their best as parents.
