Mom Upset at Alteration of Daughter's School Photo

let's celebrate the uniqueness of each child

altered_school_photos

Every time I pose for a passport or drivers licence photo, my back gets up. I have to take my glasses off. The glasses I wear 24/7. The person in the picture isn't me any more. Well, it is, but not the real everyday me. No wonder a Missouri mom was affronted when her three year-old daughter was photographed without the specs she needs to see.

Kylie_Jenner_Lip_Challenge

Since the dawn of time, teenagers have done stupid things. On a dare or on a whim, the reasons hardly matter because they are rarely thought out. And the #KylieJennerChallenge is simply the latest in a long line of imbecility before it.

Cabbage_Patch_Kids

In every childhood, there is a craze over a certain hot toy that turns otherwise sane parents into aggressive, mouth-frothing maniacs. In the '80s it was the Cabbage Patch Kid; a soft, dimpled doll that captured every kid's heart because it was begging to be loved and even came with "adoption papers."

The real life story behind Cabbage Patch couldn't be further removed from warm or fuzzy. The real story reeks of sadness and greed.

Ashton_Kutcher_Diaper_Rights

Ashton Kutcher has a cause. It doesn't have to do with climate change or animal rights. It has to do with diapers. Yes, diapers.

Ever since becoming a dad, the actor/director noticed the gross injustice plaguing the majority of public bathrooms across the nation: there are never diaper change stations in men's public washrooms.

Restaurant Attempts to Ban "Small Screaming Children"

Discrimination, or a Restaurant's prerogative?

Minecraft_wristband

If you haven't heard of Minecraft,  I don't know what to say to you. Ever since it came onto the larger scene in 2011, the gamer's game is something of a cult for kids of a certain age. And it has its fair share of grown up fans, too.

Some 54 million copies later, Minecraft is a firm parent favourite, touted with developing kids' "math, logic, and readings skills."

To the Parents Whose Child Fell into Cheetah Enclosure

Maybe Don't Hold Your Babies Over Cheetahs

We've all been there... well, sort of. In the flurry of excitement, your toddler—a writhing critter in his own right—is pointing and madly clambering to look at the zoo animals in the enclosure.

You may hoist him into your arms to get a better view of the world's fastest land mammals. What you don't do is dangle him over the edge of the exhibit where he slips 10, 12 feet down, into the lair of cheetahs.

Do you remember your prom? Part of the excitement is about choosing the perfect outfit—whatever that looks like. In my case, it was a gold lame dress recycled from the '70s by a friend's mom... But now a Louisiana teen may not get a chance to attend her special night after the principal deemed her own fashion choice unacceptable.

You'll Love How This Mom Handled Her Kids' Bad Behaviour

Sometimes we need to listen to the village

Imagine you're at the screening of Cinderella with your tween, and you know it's one of the last times you'll do this for a while since your husband was just laid off, then a couple of teen sisters ruin the show by giggling and kicking your seat throughout. You politely ask them to stop, and even confront them afterward, and they ignore you. So far, so commonplace.
