    Mother Jones illustration; Daniel A. Varela/Miami Herald/AP Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.As he delivered his landslide reelection victory speech Tuesday evening, Gov. Ron DeSantis repeated one of his favorite battle cries: “Florida is where woke goes to die.” DeSantis has made himself to be the loudest parents’ rights champion, signing legislation to ban the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) and discussions of gender identity and sexuality in schools. In building that political brand, he has not only bolstered his own standing, but also symbiotically propelled a squad of conservative foot soldiers to office—with the help of an army of Moms—where they’ll carry on the mission of eradicating “evil ideology” from the classroom at local school boards. “The DeSantis Education Agenda was on the ballot,” a spokesperson for the governor’s campaign said in a post-election statement to NBC News, “and the voters made their voice clear: We want education, not indoctrination.”  DeSantis has been credited with advancing one of the country’s most sweeping legislations to expand school choice,...
    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said he believes the Department of Justice will ultimately indict troubled First Son Hunter Biden so that it can more easily indict former President Donald Trump in the future. He told Fox News during a recent interview that he believes 'They're planning to indict Hunter Biden because they really want to indict Donald Trump to say, 'Look how even-handed we are. We indicted both Hunter Biden and Donald Trump.'' Cruz, who is promoting his new book 'Justice Corrupted: How the Left Weaponized Our Legal System,' argued that the current DOJ operates essentially a wing of the Democratic National Committee and is focused on Hunter's drug problem - as opposed to potential corruption - in order to protect his presidential father. 'This DOJ is trying to focus on Hunter Biden's drug problem because they want to insulate Joe Biden from the real issue of public concern, which is public corruption,' Cruz said. Cruz argued that a main reason the DOJ is focused on Hunter Biden is to claim even-handedness when it comes time to indict former President...
    THE DREADED arrival of half-term might be bad news for parents - but for kids who struggle with poor academic performance, the week-long break offers a chance to forget about school and failing. We often assume that how well a child does at school is based on winning - or losing - the genetic lottery - which can be an important factor. 2It's not just the genetic lottery that determines how well a child will do at school - life at home plays a key role tooCredit: Alamy But by now we also know that there are other elements to raising the next generation and parenting is one of them. To find out more about just how much home life and parenting habits can affect a kid's results at school and university, Fabulous spoke to Kirsty Ketley, an expert in the field and a mum-of-two. ''Certainly home life can have an impact on how well children do. If parents show too much or too little interest in kids' schooling. ''So too much pressure can have a negative effect, but...
    Five daycare workers in Mississippi are charged with child abuse after a shocking video emerged of one of the workers wearing a frightening Halloween mask to terrify 'bad' children. The Lil' Blessings Childcare workers - Sierra McCandless, Oci-Anna Kilburn, Shyenne Shelton, Jennifer Newman and Traci Huston - were charged this week.  The horrific video that went viral earlier this month showed several workers scaring multiple toddlers into behaving. One worker in the video can be heard telling the masked monster to avoid certain toddlers who have 'been good,' saying 'don't get her.' 'The County Prosecuting Attorney, and the District Attorney met with the parents of the children involved in the incident at Lil' Blessings Child Care and Learning Center and informed them of the possible criminal charges the law would allow them to pursue,' Monroe County Sheriff Kevin Cook said in a statement. 'Parents were also given an opportunity to share information they had gathered with MCSO Investigators. ' Newman, Shelton, Kilburn and McCandless face three counts of child abuse for participating mayhem and Hutson faces two charges for not...
    WHEN it comes to naming a child, many parents have a hard time. Rather than choose a name while they’re expecting, some people wait until they hold their baby in their arms to come up with a moniker that matches their little one. 3A woman said her mother gave her a very strange nameCredit: Getty 3The internet was in disbelief when she shared itCredit: TikTok/i_lovechico One woman, who goes by @i_lovechico on TikTok, said her parents gave her a name that always stops people in their tracks when she shares it.

    ALMOST all of us have looked up the meaning behind our name - from the more shy to the party animals, there are thousands of different monikers. But have you ever stopped to wonder why your parents decided to pick that particular name? 4We often reflect on what our name tells about our character - but have you ever wondered what it says about your parents?Credit: Alamy Of course, it might've been dedicated to your great-grandmother - but according to one psychologist, it has something to do with your parents' personality. Chatting exclusively to Fabulous, Aaron Surtees, a leading TV psychologist and hypnotherapist who runs award winning clinic City Hypnosis in London, said: '‘Your name has a big impact on how others perceive you.  ''There are also lots of studies that demonstrate and prove your name has an association to how you behave, act, and essentially "who” you grow up to be’.

    KOURTNEY Kardashian boasted this week that her 12-year-old son, Mason, hasn't had McDonald's fries for a year. In a new interview, the 43-year-old mom opened up about the strict diet she enforces with her kids – but one parenting expert tells The U.S. Sun that policing food like this can backfire in several major ways. 6Kourtney Kardashian boasted this week that her 12-year-old son, Mason, hasn't had McDonald's fries for a yearCredit: Instagram/@kourtneykardash 6Kourtney sticks to a pretty strict diet herself, but she has been known to eat McDonald's on occasionCredit: Instagram Mother-of-three Kourtney is known for her "clean" and health-focused eating habits, and she even clashed with sister Kim over her desire to serve organic candy at North and Penelope's joint birthday party in 2019, which was filmed for Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

    by Kerry McDonald   This back-to-school season, many parents are eager to drop-off their kindergarteners to begin the 13-year journey toward high school graduation. It can be a joyful time, full of anticipation and excitement. But just because something may be desirable for many families doesn’t mean it should be mandatory for all. California is the latest state to try to mandate kindergarten for all students, angling to become the 20th to do so. The California legislature recently passed a bill for compulsory kindergarten attendance that is now awaiting Governor Gavin Newsom’s signature. Kindergarten may be valuable for some children, but here are three big reasons why it shouldn’t be compulsory: 1. Increased Risk of ADHD Diagnosis For some children, especially those who are among the youngest in their grade, kindergarten enrollment can lead to higher rates of ADHD diagnosis and treatment. Researchers at Harvard Medical School published a 2018 study in the New England Journal of Medicine finding that in states with a September 1st kindergarten age cut-off date, those children who were born in August and had just turned five-years-old were 30 percent...
    BEING a parent is hard work - especially when it comes to meal times. If you've been working hard to get a decent meal on the table for your kids, it's only natural that you want them to clear their plate. 1Dietician Kate Regan said there are some things parents should never say to children when it comes to foodCredit: SWNS But one expert has revealed you should never ask your child to do this and added you should avoid branding foods 'healthy and unhealthy'. Dietician Kate Regan said eating disorders can be triggered at a young age and well-meaning parents can inadvertently cause kids to develop unhealthy food relationships. The 26-year-old said a lot of eating disorders and disordered eating begin in childhood. It's for this reason she said she would never put her child on a diet.

    Getty Images Police pull over a suspected drunk driver. Rising country music star Chayce Beckham isn’t joking when he tells people “American Idol” saved his life. The winner of Season 19 has been vocal about his struggles with drugs and alcohol — including a scary wreck resulting in a DUI — before his parents convinced him to audition for the show.

    Brian Kilmeade pushed back hard on his Fox News colleague Lawrence Jones who defended Texas authorities from criticism surrounding the multiple and conflicting versions of events that emerged from local authorities regarding the Uvalde school shooting on Tuesday. Reports began to surface late Wednesday night that the local Uvalde police may not have rushed in to contain the attacker, as was initially conveyed by Governor Greg Abbott shared during a Tuesday night press event. Jones hit back hard at what he dismissed as a “simply ridiculous” report Thursday morning, defending the actions of cops during the active shooting situation by citing insights he’d received from his police sources. Since then, however, several inconsistencies have emerged in terms of the official timeline of the horrific events of that day. Multiple viral videos also come to light showing local cops keeping parents at bay and even, in one instance, handcuffing parents who were eagerly trying to enter the school to save their kids and yelling at cops to enter the building instead of waiting outside. Jones appeared to backtrack from his full-throated...
    CNN+ host Chris Wallace asked 1619 Project author Nikole Hannah-Jones to respond to White parents who may feel she makes their children “feel bad” by “telling my kids that we’re all racist.” Ms. Hannah-Jones and Mr. Wallace demonstrated everything a news interview should be during the latest episode of the CNN+ series Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace, engaging in an unsparing conversation about the difficult topics that are the subject of Hannah-Jones’ journalism. Much of the interview centered around Hannah-Jones’ essay and book on the 1619 Project, which has its fair share of critics and admirers. Wallace asked Hannah-Jones to respond to a particular criticism from some parents, that “you’re tellin’ my kids that we’re all racist, and you’re making them feel bad about their country.” Ms. Hannah-Jones emphatically rejected that critique: CHRIS WALLACE: Okay, you know the reaction, especially from a lot of White parents, which is that you’re tellin’, in school particularly, that you’re tellin’ my kids that we’re all racist, and you’re making them feel bad about their country. How do you respond to that? NIKOLE HANNAH-JONES: I would love any of...
    Ron Johnson Sen. Ron Johnson thinks he has a solution to the labor crisis in child care. Typically of Johnson, his proposed solution craps in equal measure on child care workers, women receiving public assistance, and Wisconsin state law. “When you have mothers on different kinds of public assistance, to me, an elegant solution would be, why don’t we have them help staff child care for other mothers?” Johnson asked on a recent telephone town hall. “I think there’s an imaginative solution here.” RELATED: This again? Sen. Ron Johnson previews his plans for repealing the Affordable Care Act It’s not that imaginative. Women taking care of other people’s children, formally or informally, as a way to earn a little income while caring for their own children at the same time, is not a new idea or practice, and Wisconsin banned state subsidy payments from going to child care providers where employees’ children received care in 2009, because it’s not always a good idea. (Though it can be! It’s just complicated and there need to be guardrails.) Johnson even acknowledged some of...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki condemned Florida's new recommendation against vaccinating healthy young children on Monday, calling the idea a conspiracy theory and saying it is "absolutely not" a good policy. Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo advised against administering COVID-19 vaccines to healthy children earlier on Monday, making the Sunshine State the first to counter federal health experts and issue such a recommendation. Ladapo was joined by Gov. Ron DeSantis to make the announcement, which led to Psaki being asked if she agreed with the idea. FLORIDA'S TOP DOCTOR RECOMMENDS AGAINST COVID-10 VACCINES FOR YOUNG CHILDREN "Absolutely not," she said. "We know the science. We know the data and what works and what the most effective steps are in protecting people of a range of ages from hospitalization and even death. The FDA and CDC have already weighed in on the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines for those 5 and older." The forthcoming guidance from Florida health officials would run counter to what health officials in the Biden administration, as well as many doctors...
    A TEEN boy has been arrested after allegedly shooting dead his parents and little brother after they "banned him from using the internet" due to his bad school grades.

    NEW parents often find themselves wondering when they should punish their child, and when they should let certain behaviors slide.

While his classmates ate and played, he wore a vest and picked up their trash. The little boy felt the punishment was unfair, however, because his parents have told him before that those words aren’t bad.    The phrase that got him in trouble was: “What in the world?” He said it after seeing the long bathroom line.

    Tommy Hilfiger has revealed he purchased his first pair of Levi’s jeans and Converse sneakers at the age of 13 in a bid to be a rock'n'roll star - but was forced to sneak out of the house so his parents didn't see his tight jeans.

    OH, to be a teenager again - the endless opportunities, first crushes, figuring yourself out, no back and knee pain. But for some it also meant dealing with strict parents and not being able to go out as much as their peers - if my mum and dad said “no'', that means “no''. 2Aly claimed the strict way her parents treated her growing up meant she was unable to speak up later in life. But a parenting expert has revealed of the potential dangers - which could even be life-threatening - if you give your daughters firm boundaries to live by.

    (CNN)A great win for the Grand Old Party could be a bad omen for Democrats. Republican Glenn Youngkin picked up momentum at just the right moment to defeat Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia governor's race. This election could well foreshadow disaster for Democrats in next year's midterm elections . Here's what Youngkin got right and McAuliffe got wrong: Being a political newcomer, running against a candidate with 95% name ID, Youngkin began the general election with his work cut out for him. The campaign invested heavily in introducing the affable businessman to the people of Virginia. People need to know that you care before they care what you know. Even during the virtual era of Covid campaigning, he showed genuine concern for the people of Virginia. The one thing youll need to survive this election seasonYoungkin wisely took the Goldilocks approach when it comes to Trump; not to close, not too far, just the right distance. Youngkin didn't disavow the former president, but he didn't lock arms either. This allowed the campaign to tailor its message to Trump's...
    The turning point for McAuliffe may have well come when, during a debate in late September, he said, "I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach." Polls taken before that debate consistently showed McAuliffe with a 4-9 point lead over Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin. McAuliffe's campaign seemed to immediately sense that McAuliffe stepped in it during the debate, immediately releasing an ad insisting that his remarks were being taken out of context, but the damage appears to have been done. After that point, McAuliffe's lead in the polls melted away over the month of March, as most recent polls show either a tied race or a narrow lead for Youngkin. McAuliffe may not have helped matters by inviting American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten, who was perhaps the face of national school closures during the pandemic, to speak at his final rally yesterday in a move that was widely derided for its tone-deafness. President Joe Biden won Virginia by over 10% in 2020, and if Youngkin is able to defeat McAuliffe in Tuesday's...
    On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks stated parental involvement in education is “a very bad issue for the Democrats.” Brooks also said that the main cause for the issue is that people in education have gone “further left in the last few years. The median parent has not gone significantly further left. So, there’s a culture gap in the values in the way we talk about history, the way we talk about sexual education and gender issues.” Brooks stated, “Terry McAuliffe made a very foolish statement in his debate, where he said parents should not be in charge of their kids’ educations, which is going to set every parent’s teeth on edge. I think there’s a huge issue. I think this is a very bad issue for the Democrats. A lot of things, people don’t vote on. But if people feel their kids are being indoctrinated with this or that, then they’re going to get really angry, and they’re getting really angry. And there’s the angry people who are going to the school board meetings, but...
    Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice sparked debate over critical race theory (CRT) during her Wednesday appearance on ABC’s “The View.” Rice clashed with hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin over claims that CRT – which teaches students to view everything through the lens of race and privilege – was only taught in law schools and with Joy Behar over how much involvement parents should have in their children’s’ education. (RELATED: ‘Let Me Finish’: Condi Rice Rebuffs Sunny Hostin For Harping On Jan. 6 While Americans Are Suffering) WATCH: Goldberg began the segment with the ever tightening gubernatorial race in Virginia – where Democrat Terry McAuliffe is facing off against Republican Glenn Youngkin – and the central role education had taken in the race. “One of the key issues up for debate is how much of a voice parents should have in their child’s school curriculum especially when it comes to subjects like sex education and critical race theory, I thought they didn’t teach critical race theory until they went to like law school or something,” Goldberg began,...
    Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Wednesday denounced the teaching of critical race theory (CRT) in schools, declaring that Black children could be completely empowered without making White children feel bad for their race. During a guest host appearance on ABC's "The View," Rice, the first Black woman to head the State Department, cited her experience growing up in segregated Birmingham, Alabama, as she argued that young children didn't need to be taught CRT and parents needed to have a say in their children's education. "I’m not certain seven-year-olds need to learn it," Rice said as co-host Whoopi Goldberg referenced the debate over the teaching of CRT and how big a voice parents should have in the education of their children.  Co-host Joy Behar claimed parents shouldn't be interfering in schools to the extent that they have a say over the subject a teacher is able to teach. GETTING CRITICAL RACE THEORY OUT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS IS HARDER THAN PASSING A LAW "If they are adamant and they don’t want you to teach what is going to be taught,...
    A new law drafted in China may make it possible for parents to be subject to punishment for the behavior of their unruly and disobedient children. Under the proposed family education promotion law, if children commit "bad or criminal behavior," the parents and legal guardians could face punishment and have to take part in a family education guidance program, CNN reported . Additionally, the law also encourages parents to facilitate more downtime for rest and play in their children's lives. "There are many reasons for adolescents to misbehave, and the lack of or inappropriate family education is the major cause," said Zang Tiewei, the spokeswoman for the Legislative Affairs Commission within the National People's Congress, which is set to review the draft this week. THE OTHER VICTIMS OF CHINA'S ONE-CHILD POLICY The new law from the Chinese government comes amid several recent changes within the past year aimed at encouraging parents to be bolder in their parenting styles. In January, the Chinese Education Ministry revealed the Proposal to Prevent the Feminization of Male Adolescents...

    A school in Leicestershire, England, has banned the terms “good” and “bad” to describe pupil behaviour because the headteacher wanted to remove “emotional words” from classroom management. Teachers at Loughborough Amherst School will instead describe good and bad behaviour as either “skilful or unskilful”, with headmaster Dr Julian Murphy saying the policy, loaned from Buddhism, was “designed to take the emotional heat out of language”. Speaking to the i newspaper, Dr Murphy said that while he did not want teachers to be “soft”, he didn’t want them to be “shouty”, either, or to “make pupils feel guilty”. “I think it’s human psychology, even when you’re an adult – if people make you feel guilty, then you get angry and then actually that’s when you’re likely to play the blame game and not to work that well. That’s when things get into a bit of a vicious circle,” he continued. “You’re not really angry with them, your action is actually much more one of concern because they’re behaving in an extremely unskillful way which is going to negatively affect their live...
    LIKE plenty of parents, Wendy Robinson was reluctant to give her children access to technology, fearing that the worst-case scenarios come to pass if they were unleashed on the internet unattended. She got her kids an old iPad to share but imposed strict rules on the amount of time and type of content they were allowed. 1The mum explained that getting her son a phone actually made her a better parentCredit: Getty She stuck to her guns as long as possible, but Wendy decided it was time to give her son a phone when he entered middle school and she realised that he was the only one of his peers without one. The final nail in the coffin was one occasion when her son was the only person to turn up to football practice after it was cancelled by text. The poor lad then had to walk the mile home in the pouring rain as he didn't have a phone to call his parents. Seeing him shivering in his wet uniform, she decided it was time to get him...
    DESPITE our best efforts to always keep a cool head with the kids, sometimes we can't help but snap - and we're definitely not alone in this. But rather than scolding kids for acting up, TikTok star Laura Love - who is a fan of "gentle parenting" - is urging other mums to look closer at their bad behaviour. 3Laura's video racked up over two million 'likes'Credit: laura._.lovee/Instagram 3The mum takes a 'gentle parenting' approachCredit: lauralove5514/TikTok In a viral video that's racked up over two MILLION "likes", Laura filmed a mess her youngest son Jonah had made. She explained: "In a situation like this where a child has poured out an entire drink on something like a toy shelf, a lot of parents would instinctively yell at their kid." Listing some of the "shaming" comments parents turn to, Laura urged people not to ask things like "why would you do that" or tell them "you know better". The mum continued: "They'd probably give them an unrelated punishment such as take away their tablet for the day." Instead, the mum...

    THE average parent only gets 17 minutes of relaxation a day while on vacation with their kids, new research has found. In fact, one in five said they get 15 minutes or less, and one in 10 parents have less than five minutes to unwind. 4Parents admitted that they tend to be more lenient with their kids during vacationCredit: Getty 4They will let them do whatever they want most of the timeCredit: Getty A recent survey of 2,000 parents of children aged 0–14 discovered that although 57 percent of parents consider themselves strict, they are also more than willing to toss the rulebook during a family vacation. More than half of parents make rule concessions on a beach vacation that they don’t in their normal routine, with eight in 10 saying they’re more lenient when driving to their destination. That’s good news for kids, as more than nine in 10 parents planned to travel by car for vacation this past summer. More than three-quarters of parents also agreed that summer is the best time to take a family road trip....

    HOUSEHOLDS are receiving Child Tax Credit payments and some Americans are getting scammed by the process. Those eligible to receive cash are being targeted "using phone calls, emails, text messages, through social media.” 2The IRS had warned taxpayers of these scams since JulyCredit: Getty The warning The IRS has been warning taxpayers of these scams since July when the $300 tax credit started. “Thousands" of text messages and emails are sent out every day hoping "they'll get people to respond and fall prey to their scam,” IRS Criminal Investigations claim. The IRS says they will never ask you for money "using a gift card or wire transfer or painting via a cryptocurrency." ‘The scam’ "The scam is fooling people to click a malicious link that leads to a fake IRS website," technology expert Kurt Knutsson said on FOX Business’ Mornings with Maria Friday.  "Another version of the same scam sends you to a message appearing to originate from the secretary of the Treasury.
