3. Know Your Neighbors
Many people, especially those who have recently moved to a new neighborhood, find it difficult to know their neighbors. Getting to know the people who live near you is important and can help you make life in your new community easier. However, it is important not to invade your neighbors’ privacy and personal space. Waving when you see someone and being friendly are basic tenets of neighborliness, but you should never become too nosy or prying. Having kids of a similar age or a rambunctious dog is a great way to start a conversation, but if your neighbors are not comfortable with animals, you should leave them alone when they come out of their homes.
If you are a good neighbor, you will be rewarded with a pleasant and safe neighborhood.
