Baltimore mother Toya Graham is being heralded as "mom of the year" by the city's police commisioner after she was captured on camera grabbing and smacking her 16-year-old son in order to get him away from Baltimore protests that erupted on Monday after the funeral of Freddie Gray, a young man who died in police custody on April 19.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts went on television and publicly thanked and applauded Graham for her actions.
"These are Baltimore youthful residents, a number of them came right out of the local high schools there on the other side of Mondawmin and started engaging in this. I think these were youth coming out of high school and they thought it was cute to throw cinder blocks at the police department and address it that way. And if you saw in one scene you had one mother who grabbed their child who had a hood on his head and she started smacking him on the head because she was so embarrassed," Batts said. "I wish I had more parents that took charge of their kids out there tonight." more >>
This 6-year-old boy from England was just sitting on the couch relaxing when asked to record a video saying "hello" to his mother. Unfortunately, little George thinks his little sister called him "mean," and that is a complete misunderstanding.
When his sister starts video recording for their mom, she lets her know that George is "meaning to say hello." George has the cutest reaction, saying "I'm not mean," but for all the views watching and listening, we can see how adorable this misunderstanding can be.

Hopefully they worked it out quickly, and George was able to record his portion of the video. His reaction is simply adorable and everyone watching knows that his sister is trying to help him, but he goes away adorably. more >>

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments Tuesday, April 28 on an appeal from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals regarding the constitutionality of four state-level gay marriage bans.
Since June 2013, the number of states that legally recognize same-sex marriage dramatically increased from nine and the District of Columbia to 37 states, with Alabama being the most recent addition. more >>
They weren't lying when they said that laughter is the best medicine for anything. Just about all of these doctors will agree that a positive environment makes all the difference in the world, especially when it comes to how well a patient heals.
We all know how stressful a hospital can be as an adult, and even worse for children. That is, because as a young child you don't really understand what is happening to you. Finding ways to make children feel more at ease is so important, and at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital in South Florida, they are doing just that.
Although most incoming parents are perplexed by the staff's colorful outfits, they're quick to get on board once they see the kind of smile it brings to their kids. It just goes to show that, sometimes the simplest things can bring the most joy. more >>
