The Rachel Canning case keeps getting messier because now the parents of her boyfriend have decided to come forward to The Daily Mail in defense of their son who SeanÂ and Elizabeth Canning blame for leading their daughter astray.This is just my opinion, but I think at this point maybe all the parents involved should just stop talking to the press and get their houses in order, but nobody has asked me.

The other day Sarah Fader wrote a post on Huffington Post Parents entitledÂ 3-Year-Olds Are A**holes. I agree with her, and so have a lot of other articles on Mommyish, but even though toddlers might be their own special brand of asshole, they cannot compare to the utter assholy-ish-ness of teenagers. Three-year-olds may be assholes, but teenagers are stone cold motherfuckers. And I should know, because I have one. More
Today in “It’s all about meeeee and I don’t care how racially intolerant this makes me seem” teenager news, a mess of teenagers all have their tighty whiteys (and I mean WHITEYS) in a bunch because they didn’t get to wear their American flag T-shirts as some political statement when a Live Oak High School in the San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill told them to turn their T-shirts inside out during Cinco de Mayo.

Normally, I am all about paying attention to the nuances of language, especially for kids and teenagers. But in this case, I feel like banning Merica Day in favor of America Day is just petty. More
t’s almost Valentine’s Day, and if you are like me you get your kids a card and maybe some candy or another small little thing. The issue I have with Valentine’s Day is that I can never find the perfect card to get for my teenager, either they are too sappy or don’t fit his personality or just don’t seem right. I’m sure some of you with teen daughters feel the same way.
Because I’m a totally helpful person, I have created a lovely collection of Valentine’s Day cards for your teenagers that probably work a lot better than what you see on the racks in stores. More
Because of the shift in their circadian rhythm, asking a teenager to perform well in a classroom during the early morning is like asking him or her to fly across the country and instantly adjust to the new time zone â€” and then do the same thing every night, for four years. More

Warning: I’m about to get all sorts of judgmental up in here so be prepared. As a mom and as a woman stories like this piss me off in every single way imaginable.Â Jessica Burlew, age 16, was arrested Saturday after allegedly strangling herÂ 43-year-old boyfriend during what was said to be a “consensual sex game.” Jessica will be charged with second degree murder as an adult.

Sure, I LOVE my babies and feel a fierce protectiveness toward them from the moment they’re born, but I think the first year just sucks. It’s more than the physical demands and grossness of infancy. I just don’t get on with babies. You know when you’re at a party and a small baby is getting passed around and everyone is fighting over who gets to hold the baby next? Well, not me! More

Something’s definitely fishy here. More
Some parents of children who attend a Kansas middle school are not happy with what they think is an explicit listing of sex acts that was posted on the wall of their kids’ sex ed class. It’s definitely the strangest grouping of activities I’ve ever seen thrown together on a middle school pamphlet, I’ll give you that much. More
The very people who look down on unwanted pregnancy and also want to limit abortion rights are trying to make legislation that might, in effect, push teenagers towards having the kind of sex that is more likely to get them a baby. I DO NOT GET IT. I WILL NEVER GET IT. More
Studies that basically prove what any parent (or person) with half of a brain could figure outâ€”that kids who sext are more likely to be having sexâ€”aren’t necessarily contributing much to the discourse, in my opinion. More
