We just moved into a fabulous neighborhood one year ago. It has tons of kids and we are in love with this our "forever home." Tonight DH was doing yard work and neighbor across the street comes to share this disturbing news. Her next door neighbor's (so diagonal from us) adult son just moved in with her this weekend from Alaska after getting out of prison for 6 months after being convicted for molesting his daughter. I have been in the hospital since Friday and just got discharged today so no one has been around my place so 1. I have missed the gossip/talk and 2. I have no clue what this guy looks like (and honestly don't know that I have ever even seen his mother, the owner of the house). I looked up my zip code on the sex offender registry and can't find anyone, likely because he just moved here and isn't even a resident (how does it work if he is just "staying here?").
I don't guess there is anything I can DO about it other than not even let my DD1 go get the mail or do chalk in the driveway without me there and have a much more detailed stranger/danger talk with her but it makes me so uncomfortable to even be in our front yard, ride bikes out front or even talk walks to get ice cream past their house.
Does anyone have any advice/experience/suggestions on this situation. My DDs are 4.5 and 2.5 and I am due with LO3 (a boy) in 6 weeks.
