Depends on the pranks ofcause, but I'll assuming that he's a real pain.
"Rakesh Joshi said: Control yourself" ?
Hell no.. if my neighbours kid was a little punk I'd drag him to his house and have a little chat with his parents. If he doesn't start to behave after you've confronted his parents a number of times (with the kid present) you might want to consider to get a painball gun, or a mean dog
Well, here in the U.S., if the kid's pranks are destructive in any way, or if they involve trespassing on your private property, or if they violate the noise ordinance that many communities have, then you can call the police. If the police come by and talk to the parents, however briefly, it generally has a remarkable effect on the child's behavior.
Otherwise, I would imagine that in many civilized societies talking with the parents yourself would work almost as well.
Try giving Supernany DVDs as a gift to your neighbours - they should get the hint. If that doesn't change anything, buy the kid an entire SouthPark season DVDs - if they don't care, why should you!? [ April 20, 2006: Message edited by: Ashok Mash ]
