Numbers 4 Names
We’ve talked about wacky names before, but this latest story may top the list of all-time strange names. A couple in New Zealand was recently blocked from naming their new son … wait for it … “4real”. Yes, 4real, for real. Officials are still in negotiations about the name, but say that names beginning with a number are not allowed. Of course, this case has sparked...
Big Brother/Big Sister = Big Brain?
As if we needed something else to fuel sibling rivalry, a recent study reports that firstborn children tend to score higher on I.Q. tests than their younger siblings. Norwegian researchers studied the stats of 241,310 18- and 19-year-old men to reach their conclusions, while scientists point out that the results are likely to repeat in females, as gender doesn’t usually affect I.Q....

The Sippy Cup Incident
Two sippy cup-related news items in one week? Is this a sippy cup conspiracy or perhaps the work of a sippy cup buzz agent gone awry? Sippy Cups on a Plane! First it was snakes, then TB; now … everyone’s favorite toddler accessory is inciting terror and outrage at a security checkpoint near you! After a former Secret Service agent (yes, seriously) was allegedly mistreated during a...
A Heaping Portion of Guilt
Do you find that instead of sitting down to a family meal where everyone cordially recounts the adventures of their day and always says “please” and “thank you” when passing the salt, you’re grabbing a snack on the way out the door to the next soccer practice/school function/therapy session — and choking down a healthy serving of guilt?

Will using more precise terms to describe a kid’s weight issue help docs address the growing problem of childhood obesity? That’s the latest recommendation by a panel backed by the American Medical Association. By using the more medically correct term of “obese” when talking to families about this serious health issue, the medical community hopes to get their point across...
