Most parents limit giving candy to their kids to avoid cavities and prevent them from bouncing off the walls, but there is another reason to track their treats. The truth is that there are also plenty of inappropriate treats being marketed to young ones these days. From penis-shaped gummies to candies that resemble the blue stuff in Breaking Bad, there is a bigger and bigger market for dulces relating to sex and drugs. With trick-or-treating coming up, what are some of the worst candies you should watch out for?
A school bus driver who'd had enough with his annoying passengers decided to lock them in the vehicle and refused to let them out as he drove them around town. The kids kept ringing the bell for the driver to stop and when they continued long after the bus driver's patience was through, they were in for the ride of their life. It's as if the bus driver completely forgot what his duty was--to keep the children safe during the commute --and let his temper get the best of him.
The mother of a 10-year-old epileptic girl says she made her daughter sleep in a dog cage because it's all she could do to keep her safe. The child suffers from West Syndrome, a rare disease with severe learning disabilities and challenging behavior that keeps her up at night and causes her to bang her head against the walls. The fear that she might escape her room and seriously hurt herself led her mom to request a special bed from the Edinburgh Council in Scotland. When the council refused to fund a padded cot for the child, she took drastic measures to protect her daughter.

Listen, I'm going to ask you to do me a favor, do yourself a favor and watch this very awesome video of a 4-year-old boy having his heart broken for the very first time. You're probably thinking that watching a child get their heart broken isn't your idea of a good time and I totally understand, BUT this time it really is something to consider witnessing. This little boy's reaction to a little girl that he obviously cares very much for is so sweet I can't stand it, I want to reach through the screen and snuggle this little tesoro and you will too.
Jenelle Evans is pretty much the poster child for momma drama, it really isn't all that surprising that the Teen Mom 2 star is making headlines, yet again, this time for allegedly smoking like a chimney while still nursing her 3-month-old son, Kaiser.
Jenelle has made a big show of trying to turn over a new leaf, however it appears like some of her habits are harder to kick than others. The MTV star ruffled more than a few feathers this week when she tweeted a pic of her boyfriend and Kaiser's dad, Nathan Griffith, snoozing on an armchair, with a pack of cigarettes in full view. Fans were quick to point out just how dangerous second-hand smoke is for Jenelle's two young children, to which Jenelle later responded: "I'm outside right now smoking a cig lol."
Therese Elaine Brown a 24-year-old teacher at a private day care in Woodbridge, Virginia was arrested on Friday for disciplining a 13-month-old boy with her teeth on September 11. The child had bitten another teacher and, naturally, that is a no-no, so naturally, Brown taught the toddler a lesson by biting him in the shoulder hard enough that she left a bite mark. Wait a second?! She bit a 13-month old! Is she insane?! WTF was she thinking?
Oh and it only gets worse, my dears.

I'm not normally a violent person, but the mother in me really wants to punch 21-year-old Alejandro Martinez from Albuquerque, New Mexico in the face and HARD. You know what this pendejo did? He claimed to be from the Mexican Mafia and threatened to kidnap a 4-year-old kid that goes to the same school as his daughter, if the boy's family didn't pay him $5,000. Oh, and he also threatened to blow up their house.
He made these threats via phone using a blocked number. Fortunately, the police were able to track him down, but unfortunately he's not behind bars at the moment. You're not going to believe why he started making these threats and even worse what happened after he got caught.
Alicia Keys is the latest celeb to have a nude photo of herself floating around the interwebs, but it's not for the reason you think!
The "Girl on Fire" singer is not one of the latest victims of the ongoing celebrity nude photo scandal. At least, not as far as I know.
