The 9-year-old child was seen crushing up the tart candy and inhaling it like a Brett Easton Ellis character on a downward spiral. More
Science continues to prove that kids these days should perhaps get on my lawn and run around a little bit. More
Millions of people suffer from allergies, and many of them are children. While some allergies are relatively harmless, primarily causing a bit of discomfort or a mild rash, there are many kids whose allergies are life-threatening. Should a child fall ill or unconscious when his or her parent is not around, those who are caring for the kid, such as paramedics, need to know what exactly he or she is allergic to. An allergy tattoo does exactly that. More
Children with special needs don’t just need care — they need confidence. More
Sometimes, children aren’t able to get away from their abusers. So how can anti-abuse organizations let them know that there is help and hope? More
I realize that we are all a little sick of the “Barbie is so unrealistic!” talk, but there is a reason why we keep bringing it up: it’s true. And anything touted as idealistic (which tend to be for many children) should not be completely unattainable and unhealthy.
It’s not like Barbie is some superhero with a preternaturally strong body or wings or something; she is an exaggeration of the model figure we are already told to look like on a daily basis. Here is what she looks like, side-by-side with the average 19-year-old. More
I’m 27. When babies cry, it triggers something foreign and possibly maternal in me, but I have very little desire to start a family—especially right now. Actually, I don’t envision myself having a baby, ever. And I’m tired of being told … More
Despite traditional knowledge telling women that we’re supposed to feel unaccomplished and incomplete if we do not have children (by choice or by chance), new research is showing that childless men may actually be the ones who are more depressed and angry. More
On fun holidays that involve candy-giving, it can be easy for kids to consume more treats than usual, but can you guess just how much Easter food they’ll be eating between Good Friday and Easter Monday? More
Two young boys have basically earned the title “awesome for life” after saving a baby’s life on Monday. When Susanna Rohm saw that her 2-month-old son Isaiah had suddenly stopped breathing, she panicked, as just about any parent would upon the realization that her child was at serious risk. More
The reproductive system never fails to amaze. Once we think we know quite a bit on the subject, there’s always more findings and new information.
Also, I’m so sorry; I really couldn’t resist this ridiculous stock photo. More
First things first: I don’t have a kid. I am not a parent, and my 7-year-old nephew is the type of kid who says things like, “That has too much salt content, it’s not good for me,” so I have … More
Kids can be sometimes be surprising in how considerate they are. Children often get credit for being innocent and nonjudgmental and funsies and yadda yadda, but it’s rare that people recognize just how sensitive kids can be towards the happiness and wellbeing of others. More
How adorable is that little munchkin up there? As somebody whose lifelong goal is to be a mother, I’m pretty much fond of all children I see. Obviously, this is not the case with everyone, but you would at least hope that people would have the common decency to not be rude or discriminatory towards kids, right? Wrong, sadly. More
