And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

The Woes of Being a Bad Parent - The Chocolate Egg

God bless this poor kid's heart.  He trusted his daddy would give him a delicious chocolate candy called an OVO, made by Kinder.  


He didn't get a chocolate egg.  Ohhh, "The Woes of Being a Bad Parent." Or not?

I'll be honest, I laughed at the video, but then stopped as I saw the kid crying and crying.  I can't count the number of times I grew up facing these type of scenarios.  Especially from most of my male cousins.  It's hard to say once a bully, always a bully, because I believe people can change. But there's a limit to what we can do.  We grow up trusting our moms and dads, look to them for nourishment and guidance, and never expect them to betray us.

What do you think? Should you troll your child? Do you think it's okay if it's only done once?

I think if you do it once, then leave it at that and explain to the child what you just did.  But if you continuously do it throughout their life, I truly believe deep scars will be made, that you wish you hadn't inflicted upon them.

It was funny until it turned into bullying. Poor kid. No one likes a joke played on them, but to do it to someone who's too young to understand and take the joke is just wrong.
