Ever since “Toddlers & Tiaras” first aired, I’ve joked that I’m going to call Child Protective Services on these parents. I would never do such a thing but I was trying to make a point that such pageants — and particularly the way some parents go overboard with them — are actually quite dangerous to a child’s psychological health.

This Preschool Teacher's Diary Might Not Be Criminal, But It Sure Is Creepy

How would you feel if your children’s caretaker was keeping a journal of how your kid responded to their touch? So creepy, right?

Hospital Sensors Avert Newborn Kidnapping

Hospital Sensors Avert Newborn Kidnapping

My husband and I got a huge kick out of the triple layers of security we went through when checking into the hospital for the birth of our first child. And then once the baby was born, we had to do that thing where the baby had sensors put on her and we had matching sensor bands. We couldn’t leave our room without them checking these sensors.

And thank God for them! More »
