During our live DWTS show last night, we heard the Oklahoma news as it was unfolding. It made us sad and made us scared for our own families while we were at work.
The news from Cleveland last week was sickening on so many levels. My heart breaks for those three women, not only for what they endured these last ten years, but for what they lost, as well.
How do you know your child’s camp is SAFE? Have you asked the appropriate questions that would give you confidence in the camp?
When we questioned friends and family members who were sending their kids to camp, most parents - with a slight blush and timid smile -reported that their main concerns were:
Summer is around the corner and that means water activities. I have a LOVE/hate relationship with water. I love, love, love the water. I grew up cottaging on a lake, swimming like a fish and teaching little kids to swim.
Just thinking about all the childcare arrangements I’ve made for my three kids over the years makes me break out in an icy sweat even today. The list reads like a daycare c.v. of modern American motherhood, no less important to my career than a resume.
Despite efforts to raise awareness about preventing child endangerment and abuse, research shows that cases of child abuse resulting in serious injury or death may actually be increasing.
A sobering new study found that in Great Britain, 400 children are sexually abused every week in Britain, one every 20 minutes.
There is nothing more important than the safekeeping of our children. So it's surprising how haphazard the hiring process can be for babysitters, nannys and other in-home childcare professionals.
Take time to plan your interview with a potential caregiver and listen carefully to what he or she may tell you.
In something straight out of a horror movie, a daycare center in Australia was forced to temporarily shut down due to an infestation of deadly snakes.
And by infestation, we are not talking "one or two" snakes. No, no. Snake catchers found dozens - DOZENS - of pythons.
It has been a horrible few days since the shooting of our precious children and adults in Newtown, Connecticut. Every television station, every paper and just about everybody is talking about this act of evil.
In the wake of the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, parents all over the country may be wondering how to talk to their children about the news.
Kids are like little sponges, they take in much more than we realize and it's important to address any fears and concerns they may have. "Am I safe? Who would do such a thing? Why?"
