4 Things You Can Do to Become a Better Neighbor
September 28th is National Good Neighbor Day
Most people have neighbors. It doesn’t matter if they live beside you, above you, or below you. What matters is that you try your best to build and maintain good and cordial relationships with them. After all, the last thing you would want is to be at odds with the folks living near you.
It takes more than just a simple wave or a friendly nod to become a good neighbor. Although you may feel like you’re free to do whatever you feel like doing when you’re inside your own house, it won’t hurt to think of your neighbors’ sensitivities. If you want to become a part of a neighborhood that’s marked by a shared sense of community, as well as lasting friendships, be considerate with your neighbors.
What You Can Do to Become a Better Neighbor
Since September 28th is National Good Neighbor Day, Breast Cancer Car Donations encourages you to ask yourself if you’re the kind of neighbor that you would want to have. If you’re unsure of where you stand, check out what you can do to become a better neighbor.
- Keep the noise level to a minimum.
Did you know that about 48% of all disputes between neighbors are due to noise? If you don’t want to get on your neighbor’s bad side, don’t even think about throwing a big party until the wee hours of the morning or blasting your dance playlist at ear-splitting levels until late hours in the evening. Become a better neighbor by making an effort to keep the decibel level low.
- Have a well-maintained yard.
You wouldn’t want to be identified as the neighbor who has an eyesore for a yard. This means that those overgrown weeds, peeling paint, and unpruned shrubbery and trees will have to go. Become a better neighbor by dusting off your lawnmower or hiring someone to keep up with your turfgrass during its growing season.
- Don’t let the dogs out.
Keep in mind that a pet on the loose will potentially relieve itself indiscriminately or cause harm to someone in the neighborhood. If you don’t want to run into trouble with neighbors who have pet-related allergies or those who simply don’t like pets, keep your fur babies in your yard and make sure that you clean up their poop right away.
- Keep an eye on your kids.
In case you’re not aware, some states hold parents responsible for their child’s actions — whether these were done unintentionally or otherwise. Become a better neighbor by making sure that your kids wouldn’t cause problems to your neighbors. In case they did, make things right by apologizing to your aggrieved neighbor and encouraging your kids to do the same.
Do Something Good for Your Community
Live up to the spirit of National Good Neighbor Day by avoiding conflict with your neighbors. One way to do that is by getting rid of that eyesore of a car in your front yard that makes your neighborhood look messy.
