(PCM) It is always important for parents to monitor their children’s activities online, especially when it comes to social media networks such as Facebook.  When one Colorado mother discovered that her 13-year old daughter was posing as a 19-year old and posted a photo of herself in a bra and lace panties her reaction has now gone viral.

In addition to banning her child from Facebook this mom took things a step further and created a video, which she posted on both her’s and her daughters Facebook pages, publicly shaming her for her online behavior.  She made her daughter tell everyone her real age, that she watches Disney channel, has a bedtime and that her underwear still has the days of the week on them.

The video has since gone viral and has been viewed over 11 million times since the mother posted it and many people are praising the mom for taking control of her daughters behavior. Others feel that she went too far, as the daughter can been seen in the video with tears streaming down her face.

The mother posted another video thanking other parents for their support and tells critics that she is not there to be her child’s friend, but rather to keep her protected.

She claims what she did came from a place purely of love and hopes to encourage other parents to pay more attention to their children’s behavior online.

Eye-Opening I Wish My Teacher Knew Project Goes Viral


(PCM) In an attempt to get to know the lives of her students a bit better, Kyle Schwartz, a Denver area elementary school teacher came up with the idea to have her students write her a note completing the sentence “I wish my teacher knew … “.

The responses she received were incredibly eye-opening, adorable and some were even absolutely heartbreaking. Schwartz began sharing many of the children’s response on her Twitter account and they have since gone viral.

Schwartz revealed to  ABC News, “Ninety-two percent of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch. As a new teacher, I struggled to understand the reality of my students’ lives and how to best support them. I just felt like there was something I didn’t know about my students.”

Schwartz is also encouraging other teachers to use her project in the classroom and has started the hashtag #IWishMyTeacherKnew as a way to share and communicate with other teachers all over the world.

The point of the project was for Schwartz to be able to build a better community in the classroom, so that she and her students could have a better understanding of each other. It is the hope that everyone will learn how to support each other in the process by learning some details about another’s life that they may not have known before.

News Flash: Timmy Was Actually Rescued From The Well


(PCM) Where is Lassie when we need her? No worries, firefighters in Fresno, California did just fine without our favorite hero canine when they were able to rescue a six-week old puppy named “Timmy” who fell 50 feet down an eight inch pipe in the ground and became stuck in an old well.

The ingenious firefighters used a piece of rope to make a harness and were able to loop it around the small German Shepard puppy and hoist him up to safety. One firefighter even jokingly called little Timmy a “troublemaker”.

The firefighters snapped a few pictures with Timmy the puppy and then turned him over to his owner, a 12-year old girl named Teresa.  The opening to the well has now been covered with a piece of cardboard and brick to prevent any additional accidents from occurring.

Little Timmy seems to have fallen into the well sometime overnight and authorities were notified by Theresa’s aunt who found the puppy while Theresa was at school.  The puppy only appears to have sore hind legs after the incident, but for the most part is unscathed.

The manager for the property has since properly sealed the well opening.

Devoted Uncle Dresses As A Princess To Take His Niece To See “Cinderella”


(PCM) Showing some serious devotion as an uncle 26-year old Jesse Nagy donned a princess costume to take his 4-year old niece Isabella to see the movie “Cinderella”.

Nagy truly made it an incredible night out for his young niece. He says that the reason he wore the princess costume was due to the fact that his niece, who normally runs all around the house wearing various princess costumes was suddenly embarrassed to wear a princess costume to the movie theater when he made the suggestion.

In order to make her feel better about wearing the costume, Nagy decided that he would wear one as well, that way they could both be princesses. Nagy borrowed an old prom dress from a family friend and the two “princesses” made their way to the theater to enjoy “Cinderella”.

A ticket taker at the theater who was quite taken with Nagy and Isabella’s costumes snapped a photo of the pair and posted it online. Nagy claims that halfway through the film his phone began to go off like crazy as his family and friends began alerting him that the image had gone viral on both Reddit and Facebook.

It has received well over 4,000 upvotes and over 1,000 comments as well!

Father Refuses To Give Up Baby Born With Downs Syndrome


(PCM) Samuel Forrest, a New Zealand man living in Armenia, is making headlines after he refuses to give his newborn baby, born with Downs Syndrome, up for adoption.

When the child was born the doctor came out and said to Forrest, “There’s a real problem with your son” and then they took him back to see his son. Forrest responded to the doctor saying “He’s beautiful — he’s perfect and I’m absolutely keeping him”.

However, his Armenia wife had other ideas and informed Forrest that if he didn’t agree to put the baby up for adoption than she was going to leave him.  When he refused, the wife filed for divorce just one week after little Leo was born.

It seems that when a baby is born with Downs Syndrome in Armenia, the hospital gives parents the option right away of putting the baby up for adoption.  Forrests’ wife had already made that decision behind his back without first speaking with her husband.

In the country of Armenia, it is the social norm to be non-accepting of children born with certain birth defects and/or imperfections. The families often feel that an orphanage is a safe option for these children.  Hopefully with more awareness to these types of situations things can begin to change for the better in these areas of the world.

Even, the wife’s family was urging Forrest to put the child up for adoption and he was unfortunately no longer welcome in the family’s home.

Forrest who is a freelance business contractor will take baby Leo and move back in with his family who have agreed to help him out with raising the child.  He has also started a GoFundMe page to help raise some additional funds to assist with baby Leo’s care.

Forrest started out with a $60,000 target and has already well-surpassed that number garnering tons of supporters who were touched by this story across the globe.  Thus far Forrest has raised over $481,000! He plans to donate the additional funds received to help support abandoned children in Armenia and families with disabled children.
