    Three teachers have been charged after police said they distributed gummy bears with melatonin to kids without parental consent at a Des Plaines day care center last Friday. Officers arrived Friday afternoon to the Kiddie Junction Daycare Center at 1619 E. Oakton Street after a report of a suspicious incident. Police said that gummy bears with melatonin were given to a class of 2 year olds to get them to calm down before nap time without parental authorization. Police said that three teachers admitted distributing melatonin to the children and did not think it was inappropriate as they were an...

    Radio personality Shavonne Patrice Owens, 37, says she experienced weight discrimination firsthand when she applied for a daycare job in Huntsville, Alabama, two years ago. Despite having all the qualifications for the job, Owens says her friend — a former employee of the daycare center in question (whose employment later terminated) — told her the reason she was ultimately passed over for the job was because of her weight. Owens, who was 525 pounds at 5’11” at the time of her interview with the daycare center, said that this incident “hurt for a second, just for a second… but I...

    The reflective Mary Eberstadt has the latest Weekly Standard cover story, asserting that the late rise of identity politics especially among the young descends from the decline in family, despite myriad other theories. An excerpt: Maybe that cultural scream of ‘mine!’ is issuing from souls who did have something taken from them—only something more elemental than the totemic objects now functioning as figurative blankies for lost and angry former children. As of today, less than 65 percent of American children live with both biological parents, even as other familial boughs have broken via external forces like the opioid crisis, criminality...

    Police have arrested a 23-year-old daycare worker accused of assaulting an 8-month-old girl during nap time, which resulted in her death. One police official says in his opinion, the victim was “tortured.” Leah Walden faces numerous charges, including first and second-degree murder, in the death of Reese Bowman. “It’s giving me cold chills now to even think about it,” said Tim Barth, who watched first responders arrive. According to police, Walden is seen on video snatching Bowman by one arm several times, as well as placing pillows over her face. “As a parent you send your child to daycare because...

    Liberals have no appreciation for mankind & the world. Where a normal person might look and find something to take pride in, liberals will only see problems and troubles. Where others see achievement, liberals see excess. Now, apply all of this to the original, granddaddy of all Marxist programs for the destruction of the family unit; namely mandatory education for the young, especially through public tax-supported schools! It’s obvious, that it becomes an argument against it.

    ARDMORE, Okla. – A mother is speaking out after she claims her son was forced to kiss another child following a game of 'spin the bottle' at his daycare. A few months ago, Dominique Green said an inappropriate incident happened at her son’s daycare. "I'm standing up for these children, because somebody needs to,” Green said. Green said her friend sent her a video that was posted to the social media app 'Snapchat' by an employee at the Little Angels Daycare. "She told me 'You know, I don't know if you're going to like this video. You know, it's really...

    The President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University gave a lecture to students they’ll never forget. Recently a student complained about a sermon that made him feel guilty and blamed the school for making students feel uncomfortable. This is not uncommon. Many universities now are so afraid of offending even one student, that political correctness has run amuck. However, this University is based on religion and so one would expect that discipline, good character and personal accountability would be a big part of the curriculum.

    LEXINGTON, Ky. –  Officials in Kentucky are monitoring a day care center after an investigation found that employees required children to be hit before they could get a snack. Citing an Office of Inspector General report, media outlets say two male workers at New Creation Childcare in Lexington made children line up and get hit on the legs or hands with a ruler to get some yogurt. At least two children had noticeable bruising as a result of playing "smack for a snack." Police cited one of the employees for assault.

    A playground in Missouri is becoming a political minefield. "Only one religious freedom case is currently before the Supreme Court this upcoming term: Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia v. Pauley," the Alliance for Defending Freedom (ADF) notes. "Trinity Lutheran is a case about a religious preschool that was rejected from a state program that provides reimbursement grants to purchase rubberized surface material (tire scraps) for children’s playgrounds." "The preschool was ultimately denied the grant for its playground solely because the playground belongs to a religious organization." The ADF is a national network of lawyers who undertake religious liberty cases. The...

    Raising a child in America is more expensive today than it has ever been — more than $245,000, not including college tuition, according to the USDA — and supporting a family often requires two incomes. Even when it is not necessarily required of them, many women wish to use their educations to pursue lucrative, fulfilling careers. It should not be surprising that the majority of parents work outside the home, including the majority of mothers. Among married women, 57% with a child under the age of three worked at least part time in 2014, and nearly 74% of those women worked full time. While...
