Soccer star Hope Solo was arrested for allegedly committing domestic violence yesterday. Why don’t we discuss female domestic abuse more often? More
Eminem’s Mother’s Day Video is dedicated to his mom, Debbie Mathers, and everyone is getting it wrong. It’s not an apology, but an act of forgiveness. More
If someone posts this on your Facebook Feed, you have my permission to delete them, or tell them to go straight to hell, or slowly and carefully explain to them why this video does nothing to solve the horrible and widespread bullying problem that affects so many young kids today. It’s amazing that this video was even produced, much less is being spread around like it’s actually a “good message” for the youth of today. More
Everyone loves a good scandal, but there is something extra icky about a church scandal, especially when it involves sex. When you add the Duggars of TLC’s 19 Kids And Counting and well-known Christian Kirk Cameron into the mix, the story gets even juicier. More
A teenage father was arrested Thursday for allegedly biting the nose off of his infant son. The father told police he was frustrated with the infant’s crying. This is so unbelievably terrible. More
Moms are allowed to have a sense of humor. We’re kidding when we call ourselves “bad.” Failing at crafts and Pinterest does not make you a bad mother. Neither does not shopping organic, feeding your kids fast food occasionally, or complaining that motherhood is boring.
Here are some really bad moms – just to clear up any confusion the Internet may have with the label. More
Let’s do that thing where you guys tells me all the reason why homeschooling is so great again because stories like these make me want to never put my own kid on that big yellow bus again. A teacher in Memphis, Tennessee locked a FIVE-YEAR-OLD (Not that this would be OK with a kid of any age, but five? I have ketchup that is older than five-years-old!) in a closet because according to the little girl, she was “playing too much.” More
Nigella Lawson, who was pictured with her seemingly abusive husband’s hands around her neck in full view of a restaurant, is getting divorced.Â Charles SaatchiÂ released a statement to the public about the end of their marriage. And apparently Nigella is “devastated” by this news. Oh, honey, no, no, no. Do not go Rihanna on us.
Charles Saatchi had a violent argument with his wifeÂ Nigella Lawson that resulted in his hands around her neck at a restaurant. In the paparazzi pictures, Nigella appears “petrified” and “helpless” to quote other reports. Onlookers describe her as crying and “scared.” But husband of the year Charles wants you to know that these are all just signs of a “playful tiff” between married folks. “Playful tiffs” do not include crying and neck grabbing. Like ever. More
Times are stressful for new parents. Even if you’ve already got one in the house, there’s a lot to get straight before welcoming new life. Mounting stress over bills, impending birth arrangements, adjustments to work schedules, and possibly even the guilt over taking some attention off your older kids. That being said, nothing warrants or excuses chomping on your pregnant wife’s behind during even the most noxious fights. More
We all know child abuse is rampant, but we don’t hear as often from parents who are being abused by their own children. This story from the BBC resonated with me because my seventh grade friend, we’ll call her Melissa, frequently gloated about hurting her mother. More
Super Woman has arrived and she needs to be canonized. More
Conversations surrounding failed adoptions — or “disruptions” as they are more formally referred to — usually contain an avenue back to Tory Hansen. The adoptive mother accrued many a headline after she notoriously sent little 6-year-old Artyom Saveliev on a flight back to Moscow by his lonesome with a single note. Tory specifically cited her concern for “the safety of my family, friends and myself” when deciding to pop the child on a plane. She was ultimately ordered to pay quite a hefty sum for her vastly irresponsible judgement call. But her deep sense of helplessness and fear â€œafter giving my best to this child” is an experience that reportedly defines adoption for some parents. More
