Two-Year-Old Boy Gets Anti-Social Behaviour Letter From Housing Association

Two-year-old boy gets anti-social behaviour rap from housing association over his giggling

An outraged mum has spoken of her shock at receiving a letter addressed to her two-year-old son warning him he could receive an ABSO because of his anti-social behaviour!

Jodie Holden, 22, opened the letter addressed to little Chenlair – on the basis he is too young to read – and was stunned when she read its contents.

Chenlair was accused of being a 'noise nuisance' and warned by the family's housing association to be 'mindful' of their neighbours.

"He is so young he cannot open an envelope, let alone read the letter," Jodie told the Daily Express.
"The only time he makes any noise is when he is laughing in the back garden or watching Thomas the Tank Engine."

The furious mum added that her little boy was 'just a typical two-year-old' who was 'hardly running around estates causing mayhem'.

"I find it hard to believe that he is causing that much of a noise nuisance. It is outrageous - he doesn't know what is going on."

The Mail reports that concerned Jodie spoke to her neighbours to try and find out who had made the complaint.

"I have spoken to my neighbours who have kids of their own and they don't have any problems with us," she said. "The letter also tells Chenlair to keep his family quiet. He is two. He doesn't have his own family."

The letter was addressed to Mr Chenlair Blair and headed: 'Anti-Social Behaviour - Breach of tenancy conditions' and said that the housing association had received a complaint relating to noise nuisance and that Chenlair's property had been identified as the source.

'In this instance I do not intend to take any further action other than request you and your family are mindful of others living by who wish to enjoy to peace and quiet in their own home,' the letter stated.

A spokesman for Walsall Housing Group apologised to Miss Holden for sending the letter and said it was an administrative error.

"We have already apologised for the error and wish to say sorry again," said Ian Hill from the group.
