Lingerie For Four Year Olds? No Thanks, France.

I have to say it again, I know I'm not a parent, but... I’m pretty liberal when it comes to fashion, and I’m all for kids playing dress up at home. But I can't imagine letting a child put on lingerie -- not even inside the house. Wanting to look fabulous is one thing, but looking sexy as a kindergartener is not. 

And, frankly, it's kind of creepy

That’s why I have to wonder what kind of mother would buy her daughter items from Jours Après Lunes, a new French lingerie and loungewear line aimed at girls 4- to 12-years-old.

Not Normal: Parents Spending $32,000 On A 6-Year-Old’s Birthday Party

Did you catch the season premiere of TLC's Outrageous Kid Parties last night? In case you missed it, it was basically two half-hours of complete and total insanity. It's almost too hard to describe. But, I'll try. Basically the only description that you need is "insane".

Awkward Pregnancy Photos – A Disturbing New Trend

You know, I feel like I start out a lot of my blogs with "I don't have kids, but..." or some sort of variation of it. And I'm going to do it again.

I've never been pregnant, but I can't believe some of the photos that women let people take of them when they are.  I mean, I get wanting to document your upcoming bundle of joy, and that's fine. When done tastefully. And preferably clothed.

Naming Baby – What Strategy Do You Use?

While I have never had to name anything other than a dog and two fish (Wookie, Waldorf and Statler, respectively), I have a lot of friends who are getting to the point where they have to name children.

It's becoming harder and harder these days to come up with a name that's unique, but not too unique. A name that no one else in your family or circle of friends have already used. A name that works well with your last name (note: please don't make your kid's first and last name rhyme).

New High School Allows Students to Earn College Degree and Land Job with IBM

The IBM International Foundation and the New York City Public Schools have collaborated to create the new Pathways in Technology Early College High School, which will open in September.

Dubbed “P-Tech,” students can earn a standard four-year diploma, or opt to stay for two extra years — after which they’ll graduate with an associate’s degree in computer science from CUNY’s College of Technology (City Tech) for free. They can then continue their studies at City Tech, attend other colleges and apply the credits they’ve already earned, or be considered for employment by IBM’s IT department and at other companies.

Group Pushes For Warning Labels on Hot Dogs

Instead of grouping hot dogs with baseball and apple pie, a national medical group wants you to consider them as bad for you as cigarettes.

It also encourages people to visit their website.
