This can mean tears and meltdowns come the first day of school, which is undoubtedly stressful on everyone. It can probaly seem like a hopeless and awful situation to be in, but if you know that your child is introverted, shy or perhaps just very attached, you can prepare for the situation to try and make it go as smoothly as possible. Here are some tips to help you do just that.
People have been using Facebook to hookup for years now. But a Sarasota teen took this practice to a whole other level this year when she decided to use the social network to launch her very own prostitution ring. 17-year-old Alexa Nicole De Armas was arrested Friday after it was discovered that she'd been using Facebook to pimp teens from two Sarasota high schools out to local men in exchange for money and booze.
Another day, another idiot teacher stands accused of having an affair with a student. This time, the bad apple maestra is Michelle Smith White, a 37-year-old married woman from North Carolina who allegedly had a threesome with a 15-year-old student and her husband. Pretty crazy, huh?

Jhanna Davis is not an after school counselor, she is an abusive woman. She taped shut the mouths of three eight-year-old students while she took care of them at school last March. The twenty five-year-old counselor was hired by the Y.M.C.A to work with the students at the Public School 123 in Harlem, but she clearly wasn't fit for the job. She taped the students mouths because they were too loud doing homework. She left the clear packing tape on their mouth for more than an hour until the children finished their work. She was arrested after the abuse and is now facing a new lawsuit.

It was not an average day at school for 15-year-old student Sara Rue. The Oregon high school teen reportedly experienced a panic attack when fellow classmates started arguing with her English teacher Carrie McCann. She stepped out of the classroom and closed the door, which caused her teacher to lash out at her. In a graphic video, McCann was captured forcefully pulling Rue back into the classroom and ripping her shirt off in front of the student's peers. This is just horrifying!
