Someone's getting grounded. The daughter of a judicial candidate in Oklahoma has taken out an ad telling citizens "Do not vote for my Dad!" Ouch! Jan Schill, 31, and her husband paid for the quarter-page ad that included a picture of her family and a list of all the times her [...]

How hockey goons get started

Believe me, if the player's mom wasn't there, this fight would have been EPIC! I presume Dad, and copious viewings of hockeyfights.com, taught the kid how to circle the skater, then drop the gloves, like a goon four times his age (and size). (Hat tip: Puck Daddy.)

In response to Youth baseball parents prove easy to sucker out of money for 'elite travel team'
  • Notashamed, I'm not sure who's being mean to your son. No one is blaming him for this. Nor you, necessarily. After all, you acted in good faith. However, all you parents out there, if you meet [...]read » T/S BOB COOK

Youth baseball parents prove easy to sucker out of money for 'elite travel team'

The saying is that the two dominant emotions on Wall Street are fear and greed; for parents who trades in the futures of their children, the same can apply. It's not just sports. Look at the advertisements in any metro area child-focused magazine, and you'll see plenty of preschools, camps, tutors, [...]

image thumbnail - see full story for attributionsVideo
I'm not knee-jerk about taking the opposite position when everyone else is decrying something as another brick in the wall that is the pussification of youth sports. And it's pretty easy to jump on a lawyer who sues over his son getting hit by a pitch, especially because he wasn't [...]

Here's a novel educational theory, espoused by an outgoing high-ranking official in British education:
Ms Atkins argued that poor teachers should not be sacked, as schools "need to reflect society".

Tragically, one last act of selflessness led to his death. McGahey drowned July 7 off Navarre Beach, Fla., while trying to save his 11-year-old son and [...]
