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.

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.
