Nineteen-year-old Angus Jones may have put his job on the line after calling Two and a Half Men “filth,” but the child star would like every one to know that he’s sorry if you believed he exhibited “indifference” with his comments. That’s not exactly the sentiment I would associate with terms like “filth,” but okay — let’s roll with this for a second. More

The notorious Teri Shields who didn’t raise so much as an eyebrow to the then 10-year-old Brooke Shields being photographed erotically has left this earth. The New York Times reports that the controversial mother, who in many ways initiated a much bigger dialogue regarding the sexualization of children, died following ” a long illness related to dementia.” And despite what questionable parenting tactics Teri may have employed while navigating her own young daughter’s career, the massive attention she ultimately received for those choices woke a lot of people up to the pressures of children in Brooke’s line of work.

Children of political figures no doubt become reduced to campaign props and the public knows it. For every Chelsea Clinton or Bristol Palin that’s had to make their way into the national spotlight and smile pretty for hours on end, scrutiny usually follows, especially for young girls. If they aren’t being criticized for having a few wild nights as young people often do, then it’s everything from their appearance to their sex life. Yet when it comes to Sasha and Malia Obama, we know nothing particularly salient about them, which indicates some solid parenting by their very public parents. More

I can remember having lemonade stands when I was little. Every time my mother had a garage sale, which happened regularly since she had three kids constantly outgrowing their clothes, I would set up a table at the end of the drive way. Normally, I would bake cookies or brownies to go with my Country Time lemonade mix. I’d sit out there all day in the heat. Then I’d use my hard-earned money to visit the other garage sales around the block and buy random things I didn’t need from older kids who no longer wanted board games or G-Rated movies.
They were pretty awesome, those lemonade stands.

It’s not little Frances Quinn‘s fault that she came into the world through John Edward‘s seedy, typical-for-politics affair with Rielle Hunter. But since the videographer and former life coach is apparently releasing a tell-all book, titled directly What Really Happened, she has since dragged her 4-year-old into her shameless self-promotion.

The modeling industry boasts no pretenses about the abysmal treatment of its underage muses. Designers like Marc Jacobs make no bones about their use of underage girls in their runway shows which normally include early call times, little to no breaks, sexual harassment, payment in designer clothes, and sometimes no health insurance for girls as young as 12 or 13. But despite how awful this business treats children, the beast keeps getting fed as is captured in the chilling Girl Model documentary. More
