Mom Leaves Toddler Son In Car With Dead Body

If Jessica Ockman had designs on becoming a stage mother, it seems she planned on her little bundle of joy's first role to be in a new 'Weekend at Bernie's' movie.

Authorities in Louisiana's Jefferson Parish have booked the 33-year-old woman on various charges after she left her 20-month-old son in a car for over an hour. The boy wasn't by himself in the car, mind you. Nope - he was in the company of a woman who just so happened to be dead.

British Mother Defends Decision to Smoke While Pregnant [VIDEO]

The brilliant ladies of MTV's 'Teen Mom' may have met their match in Charlie Wilcox.

Wilcox, a British mother who smoked 3,500 cigarettes while pregnant, claims all that nicotine was actually healthy for her newborn daughter because it made the girl's heart work harder since it restricted her oxygen supply while in utero.

Teen Crashes Into Two Cars While Allegedly Texting and Driving [VIDEOS]

I'll admit it, I used to text and drive. Back before the days of touch-screen phones, I could text without even looking at my phone, and figured that was safe. Well, it has since become illegal, and harder to do with my touch-screen phone, so I stopped.

Last week, blogger Sean Symons captured horrifying footage of a teen driver who crashed into the side of the road, then hit two oncoming cars, all while he was allegedly texting and driving.

According to his YouTube page, Symons called the police when he spotted the texting teen, then pulled out his camera to catch the teen in the act. The original video was reportedly handed over to the police as evidence, Symons said.

It’s Camp Season! Is Your Kid Ready?

I remember my first time ever going to sleep away camp. I believe I was in 2nd, maybe 3rd grade at the time, and honestly wasn't a huge fan of staying away from home.

My parents convinced me to go, and my older brother was going to the same camp, which made it easier. Until the second-to-last day when I got food poisoning and had to go home a day early. Luckilly, this didn't spoil my appetite for camp for the rest of my life, and I spend several summers at one sleep away camp or another.

The question many parents face when it comes to summer camp is, "Is my child really ready for sleep away camp?".

Parents Raising A ‘Genderless’ Baby

Came across this story today and had to share it. There is a couple in Toronto who have decided to raise a "genderless baby".

Kathy Witterick and her husband David Stocker have three children. The older two, Jazz (5) and Kio (2), are boys. They know that they are boys, every one else knows that they are boys.  However, they have been allowed to pick out their own clothes since they were 18 months old. Including clothing from the girls' department of the store. They have been known to wear dresses when they feel like it, and are given the liberty to choose whether or not they cut their hair.

A New Way To Get Your Kids To Like Vegetables [VIDEO]

Most kids, well, they just don't like vegetables. In most cases, they can't even tell you why. "I just don't like 'em!"

Parents have been trying to convince their kids to eat their greens for as long as anyone can remember. I clearly remember refusing to eat ANY vegetable when I was a kid. Now? I love them! I grow my own in my back yard!

Well, it seems possibly that Parry Gripp had an issue getting his kids to eat their veggies, too. He came up with this rap song, simply titled "I Like Vegetables". Check it out after the jump!

Will Charter Schools Replace Public Schools?

Parents who have been on the look out for a superior education for their children may not have to work so hard to get his or her children enrolled in a charter school.

I'm not 100% versed on all of the controversy surrounding funding and accredidation requirements, but I do know that public school districts have been battling the challenge of offering a higher educational standard or else parents will take state funding for their child(ren) elsewhere.  Of course, there is home schooling and parents then opt to pay out of their pocket -- as do parents who choose to send their kids to parochial or boarding schools.
