    Melania Trump spent part of Thursday listening to more than a dozen teenagers talk about their best practices to be civil online, while her husband was doing the opposite. The first lady made a brief trip to the Microsoft Innovation and Policy Center in Washington as part of a national child welfare campaign launched this year called "Be Best", which includes teaching children and young people to be good citizens online. Digital courtesy is one of the elements of the first lady's "Be the best" campaign, although her husband is regularly criticized for his own online practices and has turned...

    A few months back, I experienced what a friend of mine and many libertarians and conservative parents say they have experienced: My teenagers started spouting leftist platitudes. Being combative and sarcastic by nature (since all Cubans are born with a sharp tongue), we all ended up angry and frustrated. Upon subsequent calm reflection, I realized I had accomplished nothing. And so I tried another approach. To my complete surprise, there was a 180-degree turnaround in the teens’ views. I would now like to share the tactics I used and give the following advice to those who are at wit’s end.

    BOWLING GREEN, OH (WTOL) - A nationwide manhunt is underway for three men who allegedly raped and kidnapped two teenagers in Bowling Green. Bowling Green Police say four men are accused of sexually assaulting and holding 13- and 14-year-old sisters against their will on June 28 at the Days Inn off Wooster Street. One man is in custody. Police say that the girls got away from their captors at the Days Inn, which is where the men also were staying. Their mother and stepfather rushed the girls to Wood County Hospital to be examined, and that's when emergency room personnel...
  • Should 16-year-olds be able to vote? A majority of the D.C. Council thinks so

    As scores of young people crowded into a hearing room in the Wilson Building on Wednesday, D.C. Council members saw the future of D.C. politics. “There are multiple future council members and a future mayor in this room,” said D.C. Council member Charles Allen (D-Ward 6). But before they run for office, Allen wants to make them voters. A bill he introduced in April would do just that, lowering the voting age to 16. If passed, the bill would enfranchise up to 10,600 16- and 17-year-olds, according to Census Bureau data. It would also be historic. The nation’s capital would...

    Wednesday, June 20, 2018 04:57PM DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- A 911 call released Wednesday gives more insight into the moments before three people were pulled from a pool at a Durham apartment complex earlier this week.

In the call, the caller told dispatchers that a man, who appeared to be in his 20s, had knocked on the door of the apartment where he was staying and said his friend was drowning at the pool.

    The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a lower court’s decision that allowed an undocumented immigrant teenager to obtain an abortion over the protests of the Trump administration. The action, which came in an unsigned opinion without noted dissents, throws out a precedent that might allow other teenagers in the same circumstance to obtain an abortion.

    EAST HANOVER, N.J. – Everybody makes the team. A New Jersey high school drew heat from students and parents for a new policy that says everyone makes the cheerleading squad or no one does. According to WCBS, the change came after a mother complained that her child didn’t make the cut. To make the cheerleading squad at Hanover Park High School, prospective members go through a tryout in which coaches score them on things like jumps and choreography before making their final picks for the team. But after the mother whose daughter didn’t make the squad complained after last month’s...

    The end result of indoctrination in government schools and mass media that teaches "urban youths" that American society is racist, corrupt, unfair, and unworthy of compliance is the crumbling of civil order.  When a substantial group of young males (the segment of society most prone to acting out with violence) think they have no stake in the continuation of existing social and property relations, they are able to impose anarchy in local areas.  When enough people think and feel this way, the forces of order – police, and in extremis the National Guard – can be overwhelmed and powerless to stop...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – In the past few months, multiple teens claim they were jumped and stripped of their belongings. And today, while we were interviewing one of the victims, it happened again. “I thought I was gonna die at first ’cause they were just, like, stomping on me and kicking me for like a minute,” said a Sheldon High student. He was jumped by 12 teens as he walked home from school. “It just happened all right here,” he said. A freshman at Sheldon High who didn’t want to be identified said it happened last month as he left a...

    William Shakespeare knew well enough the frustrations of bringing up teenage children. “I would there were no age between sixteen and three-and-twenty,” he wrote in The Winter’s Tale. “For there is nothing in the between but getting wenches with child, wronging the ancientry, stealing, fighting.” Now parents have united online in annoyance at adolescents “wronging the ancientry”, posting pictures of their offspring ignoring their beautiful surroundings in favour of their mobile phone screens. It started with a tweet by the comedian David Baddiel, who shared a picture of his son, Ezra, 13, studying his phone while perched on a...

    Three Oklahoma teenagers were killed last week when they broke into a house and were met by a homeowner with an AR15. Now the grandfather of one of the teenagers is speaking out about his grandson’s death. According to KTUL-TV, Leroy Schumacher, grandfather of 17-year-old Jacob Redfearn, believes the death of Redfearn was unjustified because the homeowner’s AR15 gave him an unfair advantage over the three burglars. Speaking to KTUL, Schumacher acknowledged that breaking into a house was “stupid,” but death was not the appropriate consequence. “What these three boys did was stupid,” Schumacher said. “They knew they could be...

    Teens are snorting condoms for the latest viral social media challenge, health officials warn. The 'Condom Challenge' involves inhaling an unwrapped condom through one's nostril and pulling it out of the throat through the mouth. The challenge has been around for several years but is reportedly making a comeback on the heels of the Tide Pod Challenge that made headlines earlier this year. Experts warn that snorting condoms not only poses a serious choking risk but could also lead to infection.

    The parents of a 12-year-old Mississippi boy say he killed himself last week after being subjected to intense bullying.

Leach’s parents believe the sixth-grader had been struggling to come to terms with his sexuality, and killed himself after being bullied by fellow students at Southaven Middle School. “He finally came out with the information at school that he thought he may be bisexual,” Matt Leach told WREG. “I think that really amped up the bullying.” Leach said Southaven Middle School students had threatened his son with...
