I’m sorry that that is happening to you. Maybe you could let the parents of the kids know what is going on first and then if it still keeps happening then you could go to the management.

I would place a sign on your door saying if they knock they better be selling girl scout cookies or else.

How about using google translator to write a basic note letting them know what is happening. 

Otherwise just set up the doorbell to send an electric ZAP!  JK- kinda.

@lefeymw: LOL!

Maybe someone on the Bee can help translate a quick note.  If not, you’re gonna have to electrify the door OR coat it in super glue.  There’s just no other way!

Try to use Google Translate and write a note to the kid’s parents. 

Google Translate is awesome.

I would say something.

Loudly and probably something not very polite.

pay another kid in the building to beat them up if they do it again. *evil laugh*

I would talk to the parents. Give them a note telling them what is happening and tell them if it continues you’ll go to management.  Hopefully it’ll stop before you would have to go to management.

Rewire your doorbell to give them a shock!

@JoJo Bananas: hehehe I was thinking she should glue a tack to the doorbell. So when they push it they stab themselves with the tack. I saw it on Denace the Menace. But OP said the kids are knocking on the door! Darn kids! Ruin all the fun of electric shock 😉

I feel like maybe you’d have better luck giving a note written in Spanish to the parents? The kids probably know they’re being annoying and if they go to school here (do northern states teach classes in Spanish? I don’t know!), might not read well in Spanish, so a note for the kids might not work.

¡Por favor, NO llame a la puerta si no hay una emergencia!” means please don’t knock on the door unless there’s an emergency.

¡Por favor, NO llame a la puerta si no tienes galletas!” means please don’t knock on the door if you don’t have cookies!
