Fake Modeling Page Proves We Really Need To Talk To Our Kids About Facebook Dangers

Ray McBerry, twice failed candidate for Georgia governor, appears to have taken up a new “hobby.” It involves totally manipulating young women on the internet by reeling them in to his fake modeling company.

Totally lying to and manipulating young women to get them to disrobe in front of you makes you a predator. More »

Blogger Wants You To Cover Up Your Boobs Because Her Husband Has A Penis For A Brain

For me, it’s when I bite my tongue and try to suppress my internal rage when both of my kids slap their nutritionally sound dinners onto the floor for the eighth time in a row. It’s fine.

Social Media Makes Me Feel Like An Utter Failure

We have all been there. It is 10 AM and a very slow morning. The kids have a snow day and you are wondering  just what to do with them. You are seriously dragging as you were up a little too late watching the Housewives argue on Bravo. In spite of the exhaustion, kids are dressed. They are fed (somewhat).  And you are proud. You still manage to hold on to your title of Supermom. That is, until you see that pic. The one that ruins your day.

Everything looks beautiful and perfect, with little coordinating handmade tags. You try not to panic. More »

Here's How You Protect Your Kid From 'Mean Girls' E-mailing Them - Don't Give Them An E-mail Account

You can say that they need E-mail to keep in contact with long distance relatives. No, they don’t. Grandma can get off her butt and mail your child an actual letter or postcard using an actual pen and paper. Kids love getting mail, and pretty much every kid needs some time practicing their penmanship which they can do by sitting at your kitchen table and crafting out a reply. Even little kids can scribble a picture using crayons. If grandma refuses to send an actual letter, she can e-mail your kid an electronic missive to your account. Problem solved.
