Now a young boy and girl wait in government care while officials determine their future. A judge ordered the children's mother, Jane Gonzalez, 46, to have no contact with them. They were not seriously hurt on Tuesday, though a witness described them as hysterical after the car hit the garage.

    De Soto mother gets 8 1/2 years for keeping starving boy in atticBy JOE LAMBE Friday, May. 27, 2011 A Johnson County judge sentenced a De Soto woman to more than eight years in prison Thursday for starving her 6-year-old son and confining him in her attic. Rachel Perez, 27, pleaded guilty previously to child abuse and child endangerment and no contest to attempted second-degree murder. Judge Peter Ruddick quickly sentenced her to the maximum possible — 8 1/2 years — after hearing arguments from the lawyers on Thursday. It “is not a terribly long sentence for what happened to...

    No one knows exactly how early I was born. I weighed 5lb, and until just a few weeks before my arrival, I was assumed to be a tumour in my mother’s stomach. Her belly, which had been painfully concave for as long as anyone could remember, had swollen like a balloon, while her arms and legs remained stick-like. Pregnancy might sound like the obvious diagnosis — but my mother was anorexic, and, as far as anyone knew, infertile. And as I would soon learn, when it comes to anorexia, things are rarely as they seem.

    For Mother's Day, the Time magazine website decided to make a list of the ten worst and best mothers in popular culture. The worst list was pretty standard, but the best list was at times bizarre. For example, the number ten best is... the savage Queen Mother from the Aliens movies? Number eight is....Hester Prynne, the single-mom adulteress of The Scarlet Letter? There's no Mrs. Cleaver or Mrs. Huxtable, but a savage killer? Then there's the number three best mother: Gaia, or Mother Earth. Caryn Brooks wrote: Greek gods and goddesses have their own set of morals that have nothing...

    A woman pushed a stroller carrying her infant down a flight of stairs at a Minneapolis light rail station Tuesday during an argument with her boyfriend, police said. The baby boy survived with injuries that were not life-threatening, including scrapes to his cheek, thigh and scalp. "You already got a 12- and 14-year old you don't give a [expletive] about, and now you don't give a [expletive] about this one!" Lisa Marie Martin, 26, of Minneapolis, yelled, according to charges. "I'm gonna push this one down the steps. I'm pregnant again!" She then pushed the stroller down stairs at the...

    U.N. Prepares to Debate Whether 'Mother Earth' Deserves Human Rights Status By Jonathan Wachtel Published April 18, 2011 | FoxNews.com United Nations diplomats on Wednesday will set aside pressing issues of international peace and security to devote an entire day debating the rights of “Mother Earth.” A bloc of mostly socialist governments lead by Bolivia have put the issue on the General Assembly agenda to discuss the creation of a U.N. treaty that would grant the same rights found in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to Mother Nature. Treaty supporters want the establishment of legal systems to maintain balance...

    Controversy over the Wall Street Journal's "Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior" book excerpt by Yale professor and author Amy Chua heated up even further today, as a Jewish author and mother responded with a new essay in the same newspaper championing a more relaxed approach to parenting. Titled "In Defense of the Guilty, Ambivalent, Preoccupied Western Mom," Ayelet Waldman's essay humorously outlines differences between what she sees as the lackadaisical approach taken by western mothers and the strict regimen Chinese mothers use on their children that Chua discusses.

    UNITED NATIONS — Bolivia will this month table a draft United Nations treaty giving "Mother Earth" the same rights as humans — having just passed a domestic law that does the same for bugs, trees and all other natural things in the South American country. The bid aims to have the UN recognize the Earth as a living entity that humans have sought to "dominate and exploit" — to the point that the "well-being and existence of many beings" is now threatened. The wording may yet evolve, but the general structure is meant to mirror Bolivia's Law of the Rights...

    Good lord! Wasn't that Elizabeth Taylor herself sitting over there with her new husband, the British matinee idol Michael Wilding? Few of the diners in the smart Hollywood restaurant could resist watching the starry couple from the corners of their eyes. Moments later, however, they must have been rubbing them in disbelief. After Wilding said something that had clearly displeased her, Elizabeth swung her arm back in a wide arc. Her punch landed squarely on his jaw, and her distinguished second husband — 20 years older and the darling of British cinema-goers — fell heavily to the floor. To outsiders,...

    Green River Killer Gary Ridgway is facing his 49th murder charge for the death of a woman whose skull was found by teenagers in a ravine, 28 years after she went missing. Ridgway, 61, is already serving 48 consecutive life sentences after being jailed in 2003 for a strangling spree which terrorised Seattle and its northern suburbs in the early 1980s. He once said he killed so many women he could not keep track of them all. He had previously confessed to killing Rebecca 'Becky' Marrero, a 20-year-old mother and prostitute last seen when she left a motel in 1982.

    A mother who gave birth to her daughter in a hospital toilet said staff had ignored her desperate screams for help. Sharon Willoughby, 40, and her partner Richard Sum said they also rang the emergency alarm but waited in vain for 15minutes because staff thought 'she wanted a cup of tea'. Ms Willoughby had gone into the birthing unit at King's Mill Hospital in Nottinghamshire in November last year and was given drugs to induce the birth.But she claims she was not internally examined and went to the bathroom because of excruciating pain a few hours later that evening.

    What makes a good parent? Many things, of course. But an obvious prerequisite is someone whose parenting goals have less to do with what he or she wants and more to do with what children need. Sadly, this attitude no longer prevails in mainstream American society. Elton John and Eva Longoria (Neil Patrick Harris, too) are the latest to jump on the Me first, Child last bandwagon. Longoria is in the process of divorcing husband Tony Parker (like most women in Hollywood eventually do), but she has no intention of letting a small thing like that stop her from being...
