Children are naturally curious little super-sleuths who love to dive head-first into things that are none of their business, but that's also when adults and guardians are supposed to step in and explain the importance of respecting other people's property...

Letting your children swim in a stranger's pool without asking, run all over other people's yards, snoop around a stranger's mailbox or enter any place where they aren't welcome is a sign of irresponsible parenting.

So, when a conflicted child-free woman decided to consult the moral compass of the internet otherwise known as Reddit's "Am I the As*hole?" about whether or not she was wrong to use a threatening note to scare a nosy child away from her mailbox, people were quick to help deem a verdict.

AITA (Am I the As*hole) for planting a "scary" note for a child to find?

I live across the road from a primary school. Lately a child has been walking past my house at the end of each school day and looking through my mailbox and sometimes taking my mail. There is video of this coming from my security cameras. I'd say they are around eight years old. They are accompanied by an adult who is not doing anything to stop this behavior, and my neighbors have also had issues with mail going missing.
