A few weeks ago when I first read about this case, I asked my lovely and amazing co-worker Bethany Ramos to cover this story and I believe her answer was SHUT UP EVE THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PARENTING I CANNOT WRITE ABOUT THIS IT IS TOO AWFUL. Hence, I am usually the default writer when it comes to bringing you the truly awful news I cannot get any of the other writers to cover. Which brings us to my parenting angle: I cannot for the life of me understand any sexual fetish that involves animals or the hurting of animals and if any of my kids grew up to have this creepy fetish I would disown them post haste.

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
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
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.

I have no issue with April Fool’s Day. I like harmless pranks especially if it involves me waking up my kids early so I can see them eat cereal that turns a different color. That stuff to me is totally harmless. And it usually only happens once a year. But this dumb mom in South Carolina pulled a prank that any normal adult should no better to do, when she told her daughter who lives out of state that a gunman was loose at Virginia College, where she is an employee.

There is a new expose from your pals at Fox News Houston this morning proving once and for all that kids are pretty much the worst. They did a search on You Tube about kids posting videos called ‘How To Get Your Teacher Fired’ which shows bratty monster kids of all ages explaining how they got their teachers fired. More
Well, here’s one way to take care of a bullying situation at your kid’s elementary school – file a restraining order against the alleged bully of your kid, which is exactly what Stephen Feuder has done in Sacramento. More
Let’s all give it up for Maura Fussell, who from now on shall be known as our St. Patrick’s day she-ro for doing what another other woman would do when her man was thrown in the jail: take off all of her clothes and show up demanding to see him. More
Millions of Chinese children are going to be drug tested because it’s been discovered that teachers have been feeding the students antiviral drugs in hopes to stave off sickness. More
A father was awakened by one of his four children (and in the home there was a kid as young as four-years-old) alerting him to the fact there was a man in the house, in the 16-year-old daughter’s bedroom. The father, who is confined to a wheelchair, crawled to his daughter’s room and confronted Johran, who was hiding under the bed.
You guys see where this is going right?
I have no problems with adult humans getting as high as they want to, but it terrifies me that three THIRD grade students in a Sonora elemenatary school bathroom where busted getting stoned. These kids are ages eight and nine years old. I have a nine-year-old. I can’t even fathom her understanding how to obtain pot. She is just now brave enough to buy a pack of gum if I stand behind her in the checkout lane at the store More
No parents give a damn about the friends of Cartrail Robertson, who was shot dead by his friend Darrin Wilson late Monday night. Cartail was just 13-years-old and Darrin, who is now at a juvenile detention facility and has been charged with reckless homicide, is just 15-years-old. The two barely-teens lived in Memphis and looking at their Facebook pages it’s totally shocking that not one adult has thought to put them on lockdown after this incident. More
I’m sure being a principal is an amazingly stressful job but that doesn’t excuse dragging five-year-olds from classrooms by their limbs, but that’s exactly what caused the suspension of school principal Carmen Perez-Dickson in Bridgeport, Connecticut. More
I’m not Jennifer Whalen, but as a mom I can assume the 38-year-old mother from Washington, Pennsylvania didn’t make the decision to order the abortion medications misoprostol and mifepristone online for her 16-year-old daughter lightly. Having your daughter face an unwanted pregnancy can’t be an easy thing for any mom to go through, and I’m sure Whalen, who is an unregistered nurse, spent a lot of time contemplating this whole thing before she spent 45 dollars on buying the drugs in January of 2012.
