    Parenting in the current political climate isn't for the faint of heart. Recently, my 9-year old daughter asked me, "Mama, I know it's really bad they're putting people in jail, but do those people think, 'Well, at least I'm safe from war?' " My 7-year old daughter quickly followed up with, "Why would someone say Donald Trump is keeping us safe?" Clearly, my two white kids, like all children in the United States, are absorbing the racialized rhetoric about immigration and "others" that's everywhere right now. Numerous studies have shown the early and negative impact society's racism has on children's...

    The committee that monitors sanctions on North Korea for the UN Security Council approved new U.S.-backed guidelines Monday to facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid to millions of hungry and impoverished civilians. The guidelines were crafted by U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley and experts with the U.S. mission to the UN as tensions between the U.S. and North Korea remain high. Despite the new guidance on humanitarian aid, "the United States has been very clear that we will continue to enforce the current sanctions until we achieve the final, fully verified, denuclearization of North Korea," a U.S. official told CBS News...

    During the last few weeks of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in the fall of 2016, I found myself seeking out increasingly tender and empathetic photographs of his supporters. Maybe it was the long weeks away from my own son that softened my eye and drew me toward parents and their children at Mr. Trump’s rallies. It’d been a long journey covering the campaign, and I remember being exhausted by the anger I experienced. The crowds took Mr. Trump’s lead and directed their hatred at me and my colleagues from the press, event after event, day after day, and, eventually, it...

    Thank You Tommy Robinson and supporters for making the world a safer place for innocent children. It wasn’t Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May or any other political bigwig who championed the cause of imprisoned Tommy Robinson, but the little people from all walks of life. Cheers are being sent up worldwide today because the chant “FREE TOMMY!” has been mercifully renewed to “TOMMY FREE!” Readers can see for themselves this morning that the same news outlets who largely looked the other way during the two months of his imprisonment; the ones who wrote stories broadly branding him as a “criminal”...

    Modern idolatry takes many forms, Pope Francis said Wednesday, including not having children in order to advance one’s career. “Idols demand a cult and rituals,” the pope said at his weekly General Audience in Saint Peter’s Square. “People bow down before them and sacrifice everything. In antiquity, human sacrifices were made to idols, but even today people sacrifice their children for their career, neglecting them or simply not generating them.” Children are not the only sacrifice laid on the altar of idols, the pope continued, and one’s career is not the only idol on offer. “Beauty demands human sacrifices. Fame...

    Gang violence and crime in the Windy City have not gone away under Rahm Emanuel’s leadership, though some progress has been made in specific categories of crime. Still, the endemic problems are enough to have altered the lives of many of Chicago’s residents, seemingly in a permanent fashion. The local CBS outlet looked at the effect this has had on some families and discovered some truly heartbreaking stories. In Lawndale, on the City’s west side, some parents report that they’ve become so desperate that they’ve taken to “hiding their children” rather than risking their being injured or killed in the...

    While one young college student has made headlines after she disappeared, dozens of children have gone missing in the same state. A young University of Iowa student made headlines recently after she disappeared during an evening jog—but she is just one of the dozens of people who have been reported missing in Iowa in the last 10 days, and the overwhelming majority of the disappearances are children. Mollie Tibbetts, 20, has become the latest face of the missing person database this week after she was last seen going for a jog near her boyfriend’s house on the evening of July...

    Sometimes a society's values change sharply with almost no one noticing, much less anticipating the consequences. In 1968, according to a Gallup survey, 70 percent of American adults said that a family of three or more children was "ideal" -- about the same number as Gallup surveys starting in 1938. That number helps explain the explosive baby boom after Americans were no longer constrained by depression and world war. Those values and numbers didn't last. By 1978, Gallup reported that only 39 percent considered three or more children "ideal." The numbers have hovered around there ever since, spiking to just...

    SAN DIEGO — The Trump administration said Thursday that more than 1,800 children separated at the U.S.-Mexico border have been reunited with parents and sponsors but hundreds remain apart, signaling a potentially long wait for anguished families. The federal government was under a Thursday deadline to reunify more than 2,500 children separated from their parents under a new immigration policy designed to deter immigrants from coming here illegally. The policy quickly backfired amid global outrage from political and religious leaders and daily headlines about crying children taken from their parents. President Donald Trump ended the practice, but a federal judge...

    Democratic Congressman Joe Crowley, who lost to 28-year-old Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in their June primary, said migrant children being held in custody by the Trump administration should be compensated. 'The damage that has been done to these children will be life long,' he said at a press conference at the Capitol on Wednesday. 'In fact, I suggest they need to be compensated for what this administration did to them.' **SNIP** Crowley is on the ballot for the Working Families Party and explained Wednesday the procedure to get his name removed is too complicated.

    Today, First Lady Melania Trump traveled to Tennessee to visit the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital as part of her Be Best campaign. After arriving in Tennessee, Mrs. Trump was met by United States Representative Marsha Blackburn and United States Air Force Colonel Keith Allbritten. When Mrs. Trump arrived at the Children’s Hospital, she was greeted by Chief Executive Officer and President of Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Dr. Jeff Balser, Deputy Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs, Dr. Wright Pinson, and the Chief of Staff for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital, Dr. Margaret Rush. The First Lady participated in a roundtable discussion on...

    Melania Trump is going on the road to promote her “Be Best” campaign to help children. The first lady planned to advocate for her campaign Tuesday in Tennessee during a visit to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville on what will be her first domestic trip to highlight the initiative. Mrs. Trump was participating in a discussion about babies who are born dependent on drugs, tour a neonatal intensive care unit and visit with patients. She has done little personally to publicize the campaign around the country since she unveiled it at the White House in May....

    metallicman ^ | June 2018 | editorial staff
    One of the things that I have come to appreciate the most was the family meal that we had when I was growing up as a child. During my early childhood we would hold formal “sit down” meals in the Dining Room. Us children each had our own roles / chores in regards to this. On Sunday we would have the largest and most elaborate meals. Mealtime was the opportunity when we could all talk about our day, our hopes and dreams, and things that interested us. At the time, I didn’t realize how important it was. Then, during the...

    A U.S. judge struck back late Friday night at a Trump administration claim that speeding up the reunification of immigrant families separated at the U.S.-Mexican border would put children at risk, saying the government had either misunderstood his instructions or was “acting in defiance of them.” Last month, in a case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw ordered the government to reunite as many as 2,500 children and parents separated as part of U.S. President Donald Trump’s efforts to combat illegal immigration. The separations came after families crossed the border illegally or filed for...

    Hungary’s pro-family culture has resulted in a rising fertility rate for married women which is “winding back the clock” on demographic decline — a trend once deemed irreversible in Europe and used by globalists to justify mass migration from the third world. “The country is not just experiencing a fertility spike; Hungary is winding back the clock on much of the fertility and family-structure transition that demographers have long considered inevitable,” writes the author of “Is Hungary Experiencing a Policy-Induced Baby Boom?” from the Institute for Family Studies website. “That’s unusual,” author Lyman Stone wrote, “as most countries around the...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) held a joint call Tuesday to announce their efforts to comply with a June 26 federal court ruling mandating children under five years old in HHS custody be “reunited” with parents if they were separated at the border. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, in response to an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawsuit, set a July 10 deadline to reunite the families and refused to provide additional time for the government to use DNA testing to determine if the people in question are even the 102...

    U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw on Monday said he was "very encouraged" by the Trump administration's "real progress" in reuniting illegal-immigrant families separated at the border. More than 50 immigrant children under age 5 will be reunited with their parents by Tuesday's court-ordered deadline for action by Trump administration, and the families will then be released into the U.S., a government attorney said Monday. That's only about half of the 100 or so toddlers covered by the order, but Sabraw said the news so far has been encouraging. "There's no question that the parties are meeting and conferring," Sabraw said...

    The first lady may have found her White House calling. Late last month she returned to the border to speak with officials at a U.S. Border Patrol facility in Tucson, Ariz., where she held a roundtable discussion with those on the front lines of the immigration crisis. “I’m here to support you and give my help, whatever I can,” said Mrs. Trump. It’s her second trip to the border, and she seems laser-focused on the issues there affecting children. “She cares about children deeply and when the news started to hit I think she was very concerned and wanted to...
