    Christians Call Out Hobby Lobby For Hypocrisy

    The arts and crafts retailer Hobby Lobby proudly touts itself as a Christian company that puts people over profits. However, some staunch Christians say there’s a gaping hole in that claim — namely, China. Products bearing “Made in China” labels are found all over the shelves at Hobby Lobby, evidence that some of its wares come from Chinese factories that have a reputation for labor rights violations and rock-bottom wages. Employees at these facilities often end up working grueling hours […]

    A Whole New — And Necessary — Way to See Your Messy House

    12 Reasons Having Curly Hair Rocks

    Something great has happened in my life recently and I want to shout it from a mountaintop. I want to tweet it, Instagram it, make it my Facebook status and make a Vine about it. No, I didn’t get pregnant or land my dream job. I didn’t join a cult. I accepted my curls. I decided that curls rock. Curls are cool! Curls are like if pizza had a baby with a tiny polar bear who wears leather jackets just […]

    Easy Shoe-Tying Trick Makes The ‘Bunny-Ear’ Method Look Complicated

    If you’re struggling to teach your kiddo how to tie his or her shoes, you’re in luck. Last year, Ross Elementary School’s Parents Teacher Association (PTA) posted a video, borrowed from the Rosemeade Elementary PTA, on their Facebook page with the caption, “On the ‘wish list’ of many Kindergarten, 1st grade, and PE teachers are students who know how to tie their shoes!” The 25-second shoe-tying tutorial, which is making rounds on Facebook currently, gives the “bunny-ear” method a run […]

    What Really Happened To Steve From ‘Blue’s Clues’?

    Do you remember Steve Burns? Here’s a reminder: He was the dude with the sick fashion sense. He got super excited when the bills came. And he always had a clue. In 1996, Nickelodeon introduced us to “Blue’s Clues,” and kid’s TV would never be the same. The show featured an affable, oblivious host talking to household items like salt shakers with French accents while deducing what his blue dog was trying to say to him through cryptic paw print […]

      It’s almost that time of year. I can feel it in the fall air and see it on the faces of parents and seniors everywhere. It’s almost college application time and the race begins, as parents and kids vie for the chance to get into their first choice colleges. For some parents, college acceptance approaches the culmination of every single parenting choice ever made. It can seem the ultimate goal, the ROI of parenthood, the final gold award and […]

But finally, there’s a Kickstarter campaign that’s trying to solve a very real and pressing problem during these hot summer days — namely, that water balloons taketoo damn long to fill up.

    30 Totally Rotten Things Parents Do That Are Ruining Their Kids’ Lives

    Confession is good for the soul, they say. Confession sets you free. Well, I confess I have been extraordinarily unreasonable lately, and that I am, in fact, ruining my children’s lives. For example: I asked my middle schooler to take a shower even though, “GEEZ, Mom.” I asked my daughter to open the garage door for her brother even though, “That is STUPID and NOT FAIR, and I HATE EVERYONE.” I asked small children to put away all the pieces […]

    Roommate Dancing While He Thinks No One’s Watching Is AMAZING

      They say you should dance like no one’s watching. But if you actually don’t want anyone watching, you should make sure that no one is. That lesson was learned the hard way by this poor soul in the video above, who was cleaning up after a Halloween party whilst dancing to the Sheena Easton classic “Morning Train (9 to 5),” according to the video description. The dancing is great and this guy has nothing to be ashamed of. See […]

    I’m a Hazmat-Trained Hospital Worker: Here’s What No One Is Telling You About Ebola

    Ebola is brilliant. It is a superior virus that has evolved and fine-tuned its mechanism of transmission to be near-perfect. That’s why we’re all so terrified. We know we can’t destroy it. All we can do is try to divert it, outrun it. I’ve worked in health care for a few years now. One of the first things I took advantage of was training to become FEMA-certified for hazmat ops in a hospital setting. My rationale for this was that, […]
