Long Island Elementary Students Performed A Billy Joel Concert And He Showed Up Like No Big

Long Island Elementary Students Performed A Billy Joel Concert And He Showed Up Like No Big

Please tell me a parent taped this performance and will be uploading it to You Tube post haste. Just like Billy Joel I would also enjoy seeing a bunch of six-year-olds perform Billy Joel songs to their throngs of adoring fans, mostly of their families and parents and also Billy Joel who just happened to show up at the concert to watch the little kids perform a tribute of his music.

In Honor Of National Sibling’s Day Let’s Celebrate All The ‘Only’ Children In The World!

In Honor Of National Sibling's Day Let's Celebrate All The 'Only' Children In The World!

There is nothing wrong with being an only child. There is nothing wrong with only having one kid. But you see it all the time, people trying to guilt people into having more children by tossing out nonsense opinions like “Only children always have issues” and “Your kid will be so lonely without a brother or sister” and “You should really have one more, so your dumb kid has another dumb kid to play with.” More »

School Stabbing Suspect Came From A ‘Good Family’ Which Doesn’t Explain Anything

School Stabbing Suspect Came From A 'Good Family' Which Doesn't Explain Anything

Reading the accounts from these kids who said they never expected anything like this to happen to someone they know is heartbreaking. I cannot imagine the sort of fear and confusion that went on in the halls at Franklin Regional Senior High School yesterday, and how these kids and adults will even begin to heal and find hope after an event as horrific as this one. What I also find amazingly difficult to fathom is how the parents of Alex Hribal feel, especially after reading the accounts from neighbors and the family attorney. More »

North West Isn’t A ‘Budding Fashionista’ – She Is A 10-Month-Old Baby

North West Isn't A 'Budding Fashionista' - She Is A 10-Month-Old Baby

I feel so bad for teensy, tiny, younger-than-the-bottle-of-soy-sauce-in-my-refrigerator North West, daughter of super-couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Not only because she will grow up in the spotlight of amazingly spotlight-seeking parents, but also because it seems the media is hell-bent on branding this child before she has even started walking. Not only do media outlets speculate on things like whether or not this INFANT wore makeup for her recent Vogue cover shoot, but an adjective used to describe this baby in hundreds of headlines is fashionista. Or budding fashionista.

For a baby less than a year old. More »

Not Wanting Your Kid To Join A Gang Is Great, But Beating Them And Putting The Video On Facebook Isn’t

Not Wanting Your Kid To Join A Gang Is Great, But Beating Them And Putting The Video On Facebook Isn't

I think a lot of parents with young kids worry about them getting involved in gangs, and want to scare them into staying away from them. But this is so not the way to do it, and this makes me think we have a lot of parents out there now who think using their “tough love” disciplinary methods and posting the videos online will get them their own sort of fame and notoriety. Did these people just not realize what they were doing was grotesquely wrong and also a crime? It scares me to think of how they were treating this child when they weren’t filming him. More »

‘Year Of A Lot Of Sugar’ – My Family Ate A Lot Of Sugar For A Year

'Year Of A Lot Of Sugar' - My Family Ate A Lot Of Sugar For A Year

Inspired by research and writings by prolific food-industry authors like Ina Garten, and food bloggers like Heather Baird, Eve Vawter decided to try an experiment. She, along with her husband and children, spent all of 2011 eating a whole lot of sugar. Even though there are popular web articles and books where other families vow to try sugar-free experiments for a year, Eve felt it was in the best interest of her family to eat a whole lot of sugar.

If Your Kid Whips Out Their Drugs In Class, You Will Hope The Teacher Acts Like Coach Mark Black Did

If Your Kid Whips Out Their Drugs In Class, You Will Hope The Teacher Acts Like Coach Mark Black Did

I know parents everywhere love their children and they think that their special snowflakes are never in the wrong, even when they are allegedly whipping out a baggie full of the weed (Yes, I meant to say THE WEED) in the middle of class to bashbrag (I also made this word up, and it means to show off your weed) to all of their little friends. Tempers are running HIGH (see what I did tharrrrr?) at Santa Monica High (That was unintentional) because longtime science teacher and wrestling coach Mark Black has been placed on leave pending an investigation.

Students Posting Snaps Of Sad Lunch Shows Michelle Obama Needs To Revisit Her Lunch Initiative

Students Posting Snaps Of Sad Lunch Shows Michelle Obama Needs To Revisit Her Lunch Initiative

I’m a fan of Michelle Obama and her almost 600 dollars sneakers. I love FLOTUS, even though just like every other rich person in the US she seems to be a bit out of touch as what life is like for us normal non-presidential people. Including her initiative to re-vamp school lunches in hopes of combatting childhood obesity. I’m not the only one who feels this way, because sad students are posting snaps of their sad lunches on social media and blaming Mrs. Obama. More »

Prince George Looks Tired As He Reveals His Post-Birth Body In New Zealand

Prince George Looks Tired As He Reveals His Post-Birth Body In New Zealand

I know we must make some concessions due to the fact that he had just landed after a 30 hour flight, but I cannot be the only one who is thinking that Prince George, son of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and third in line to the throne looks a bit exhausted in these images. It’s obvious that he may be in need of a nap, judging by his mussed up hair and the way he clenches his fists as his mother holds him in his arms. More »
