If there is one thing that everyone in the whole world knows about me, it’s that I am the most hyperbolic person ever and that I exaggerate more than anyone else all the time. The downside to this is that people tend to wave off my claims of descending into hell on any given day, when I launch into stories like; My Child’s Tamagotchi: My Descent into Hell or We Ran Out Of Paper Towels: My Descent into Hell. I can understand this. It’s a bit like crying wolf. However, if you have a child in daycare or school, chances are that you’ve traversed the outer rings of the inferno with a nit comb in hand and will probably agree that there’s no punishment for all the earthly wrong you’ve done that is more horrifying than having a child with lice.

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
But, as my daughter explained, the MOST popular of “The Populars” take the private shower stalls. “But how do people know who is popular and who isn’t?” I asked my daughter. “You just know,” was her answer. More
House Bill 1472 was introduced in the Missouri legislature in January and had its first public hearing last week. The bill would require school districts to inform parents when evolution is being taught so parents could opt their kids out of those lessons. This is ridiculous. More
But then I made a critical error. I read Home School Mom Blogs and found that I am the worst homeschool mom ever. I was totally nonplussed at my apparent inadequacy. More
I come from a family of paranoid people. It’s not so much that the glass is half empty; it’s that you should really put a napkin over that glass in case a fly accidentally drowns in it. Fireworks are loud with a chance of starting on fire, and driving in the rain is a hasty break away from hydroplaning to your doom. Dancing while pregnant is ill advised because… wait, I don’t think a reason was given when I was yelled at across a reception hall to, “Save the baby and sit down!” Cars crash, planes explode and lawnmowers shoot dangerous shrapnel right into your eyes..
This would eventually effect how I was parented. More
Generally, I am very sympathetic to any argument involving Laura Ingalls Wilder as a talking point, but not this one. More
As my kids shouted for breakfast I went into the garage. I began to think, “What would MacGyver do if he had a Pinterest account?” With 17 kids to consider, I knew it would have to be easy and quick but at the same time, make me look like an incredible mother. More

It’s that time of year—if you have a school-aged child, somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas, you will be “invited” to their classroom holiday party, and woe betide you should you choose to decline. Despite the promise that you’ll be making memories to last a lifetime, there are some hazards that accompany your attendance. Not long ago, I was new to this Game of Thrones-y ritual of classroom politics and desperately wishing that there was some type of survival guide to accompany it. None existed—before now. You’re welcome. More
There should be a way we can get these extremely overzealous school officials who suspended this first grader for kissing his “girlfriend” on the hand to swap places with all of the school officials in high schools and colleges who are reluctant to report actual crimes of rape. Can we do a swapsies on this? More
Are any other parents having a snow day with their kids off school today? More
Of course I hope neither of my children are ever suspended – but if they are, I hope they do it with flair like these kids did. More
There are so many other ways of handling kids who don’t turn in homework, you know, other than graffiti-ing on their little bodies. It’s hard enough getting some kids to enjoy going to school and I’m sure this situation isn’t helping this kid feel like school is a safe place for him to get an education at.
