Social Media Continues to Stress Out Kids And Destroy Childhoods

Social Media Continues to Stress Out Kids And Destroy Childhoods

Hey, here’s a new concern about kids and technology that I’ve never thought about before but should have! Turns out there is a real relationship between self-esteem and the Like button. I’ve been so worried about my kids not hooking up with pedophiles that I haven’t even thought about what social media will mean to their feelings about themselves.

In An Attempt To Make You Feel Old, Neil Patrick Harris’ Twins Turned 4 This Weekend

In An Attempt To Make You Feel Old, Neil Patrick Harrisâ Twins Turned 4 This Weekend

I have a bone to pick with Gideon and Harper, twin children of Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka. They need to stop growing up. They just keep getting older and older, with absolutely no regard for our feelings. They can’t just be babies one day and then suddenly be able to walk and talk and wear button-down shirts the next. That means time is actually moving, and we’re all getting older, and even though it feels like you were 12 yesterday, you’re an adult now with adult responsibilities, and you are not a celebrity kid with a celebrity life. How dare they do this to us? More »

19 Kids And Counting: Triple Dates, 5K’s And Derby Races

19 Kids And Counting: Triple Dates, 5K's And Derby Races

We open this episode of 19 Kids and Counting with more declarations of who is engaged, who is courting and who is a pathetic spinster- the usual. I will say right now- this pair of episodes were somewhat lackluster and not full of the usual Duggar doins‘ we have all come to expect. I think I know what they are up to. Next week is The Wedding and I have a feeling the Duggar’s are doing the only thing they know- saving it for marriage. See what I did there? More »

7th Heaven Dad Stephen Collins Allegedly Confesses To Molesting Little Girls, So I Guess Nothing Really Is Sacred

Actor Stephen Collins, best known for his role as the pastor dad on 7th Heaven, has allegedly confessed to molesting several little girls. As a huge Jessica Biel fan I watched the show religiously, and while Collins always came off as a little creepy to me with a smile that never quite reached his eyes, I did NOT see this coming.
