How can you stop your neighbors who live above you from continuously bothering you through running kids and moving elements?

There isn't much you can do as it's normal noise for most households. If you are renting and the person upstairs is renting contact your landlord and ask if carpeting can be put down on the floors upstairs. If this noise is only during the day then you are really out of luck, but if it keeps up through the night you have a right to complain.
