Out of 28 households, we have about 20 kids. Some of them help cook and clean, and we have had various celebrations (solstice, etc,) including kids. The noise problem created by hard surface floors, and even ordinary conversations, has not been solved as yet. There is still hope. I'm a senior (age 74) and we have about 20 seniors of various ages. I'm fairly confident that they feel as I do about the kids. In the summer when the noise gets to be too much we have 3 tables on the deck outside where the noise sensitive like to eat. We also stress "indoor voices" in the common house. Hope that helps. Ruth. ----Original Message Follows---- From: Caren Albercook <calbercook [at] yahoo.com> Reply-To: Cohousing-L <cohousing-l [at] cohousing.org> To: Cohousing-L <cohousing-l [at] cohousing.org> Subject: [C-L]_ Kids Vs Elders: Aging In Place Date: Sat, 8 Apr 2006 08:27:15 -0700 (PDT) Neighbors, I was saddened to hear that anyone would be driven out of cohousing by the needs of the children there, and I'm anxious that it not happen in my community. I'm a working mom of 2 small kids and could easily have missed frustrations not strong enough to be voiced. Could anyone add to this piece? How has this friction played out in your community?
