Many of us almost had a heart attack when Martín Fuentes posted this photo on Instagram. It's cool to teach sports to your children. Waterskiing at such a young age, not so much.

Although Kourtney Kardashian seems to be a very involved mom, her decision to homeschool her older son Mason so he can be in KUWTK seems a terrible idea. Why make him miss Kindergarten fun?

At this point we all know that Shakira is a super mamá, but I still cringe a little when I see this image of her in the Barcelona Stadium with Milan, when he wasn't even a month old.

In Spain, bullfighting is a cultural thing, but many where shocked in July of 2015 to see Andreas, Paulina Rubio's son, with blood stains on his pants while walking around the plaza with a matador.

Being a teenager is hard enough without having your mom's infidelity and your stepdad's crooked business deals discussed in every magazine. Much less to see your mother pregnant of a man 15 years her junior after a few months relationship. Welcome to the personal hell of Sofía Telch, Ninel Conde's oldest daughter, who was 15 when her mom was divorcing Juan Zepeda and got pregnant with Giovanni Medina.

One of the saddest stories in showbusiness. Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina died the same way (drowing in a bathtub after doing drugs). Unfortunately, the coincidence wasn't a big surprise. There were rumors that Houston and then husband Bobby Brown consumed drugs and alcohol in front of her.
