    First it was dodgeball. Now the age-old tradition of father/daughter dances at school is being phased out. But don't worry! Mother/son traditions are getting the heave-ho too. A Rhode Island school district is blazing the trail, calling these gender-specific activities "discriminatory" after a single mom complained that her kid was left out of a daddy/daughter event because she didn't have a dad to accompany her. As a married mom, I can't agree with them more.

    You probably wouldn't peg E.L. James as a prude, but here it is. The author of the phenomena that is the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy admitted to Katie Couric this week that she would let her teenage sons read her steamy novels ... but she wouldn't be able to look them in the eyes afterward. I can't exactly say I blame her; she did write the book responsible for sending sales of ben-wa balls sky high. I'm kind of hoping my daughter is out of the house before she finds out what those are so I don't have to explain how to use them. But E.L. has just walked herself into a parenting trap that will suck you in quicker than quicksand.

    I've never felt sympathy for an entire state before, but it seems New Jersey just can't get enough of trainwreck reality stars. Snooki up and has a baby and turns domestic, but now she's being replaced. Jenelle Evans, scandal-plagued star of Teen Mom 2, is busy apartment hunting in the Garden State! Until now, MTV fans have gotten to see Evans' shenanigans filmed in eastern North Carolina, where she has lived on and off with mom Barbara and son Jace. But after reuniting with (also on-again/off-again) boyfriend Kieffer Delp, Evans took a recent trip to the Dirty Jerz, and she's not looking back.

    Clint Eastwood has been the darling of the right since his surprise chat with an "invisible Obama" at the Republican National Committee's convention last month. So here's hoping his GOP pals will be willing to listen to what the actor and director has to say about same sex marriage. Heck, the message Eastwood is peddling is one the left should find pretty appealing too. Yes! The two can come together! And it's easier than you'd think! So how does it work?

    When the celebrity kid who uploads pictures of himself smoking what appears to be weed is Snoop Dogg's -- oh, excuse me, Snoop Lion's -- son, you have to know what's coming next. The photos Corde Calvin Broadus posted to Twitter show Snoop Dogg right there with him, taking his own hits off the bong. I know what you're thinking. Snoop Dogg/Lion/Hippopotamus smokes weed? I'm so ... not ... surprised! But here's what is surprising, y'all. This is a guy who has bragged about giving his kids a "normal existence" despite their dad's fame. I'm not sure where "smoking a bong with dad" is considered normal, but it's not the United States. It makes you wonder what his kids really think of him, doesn't it? They certainly don't respect him.

    Move over Jessica Simpson! British actress Elizabeth Hurley has moved into the role of famous mom who dares to dress little girls in bikinis, and the controversy over her new swimwear line for kids is nearly as silly as the scandal over "sexy" baby Maxwell wearing a two-piece. Actually, scratch that. What's silly is that Hurley has added bikinis for itty bitty girls to her clothing line to begin with.

    It had to be unnerving for the people sitting in on a chat on the ESPN website to suddenly read the thoughts of a man who said he was watching some kids and wouldn't mind killing them. Here they were, in front of a computer screen, unable to tell if it was all a sick joke or if there was a man with a gun somewhere in this country about to murder some innocent children in cold blood. The arrest of 21-year-old Eric Yee in Valencia, California is one of the best outcomes they could have hoped for. Police say Yee is the man who made the criminal threats on the ESPN site, and -- this is possibly even scarier -- they say they found firearms in his home.

    I read somewhere recently that moms are six times more likely to be called "bad" on the Internet than dads. I'm not surprised. After all, the story of a mom who abandoned her baby at a Texas hospital, then showed up in court to tell the judge she wanted him back has brought out a spectacular amount of hate when you consider the facts of her case. Authorities say the unnamed mom followed Texas' Moses Law when she took her healthy infant, wrapped him in a blanket, and placed him in a tub, then dropped him off at an urgent care clinic. When she showed up in court a few weeks later, she explained to the judge that she already had three kids at home and was scared she couldn't handle a fourth. Can you blame her?

    Voter, there's some important news from the campaign trail you need to hear. Now. Mitt Romney's running mate Paul Ryan may not be the man you think he is. In fact, it's looking increasingly likely that the man running for vice president is a small wooden boy whose father's name is Geppetto (no word yet on whether his conscience goes by the name Jiminy). I know, it sounds so unlikely! But then, so do the host of lies the Wisconsin Congressman has been caught in lately. You've probably heard how he faked his marathon time? Now there's another whopper that's been uncovered.

    Here's what I will never understand about the whole debate over breastfeeding in public. When people get offended over the sight of some breast flesh, don't they notice the little baby there too? The sweet little innocent person who is hungry? It seems the whole debate comes down to boobs, when it should be all about the baby. That's the point of breastfeeding, right? To feed your baby? So what if there was a way to switch it up, to draw the attention back to the place it belongs? I'm talking about babies wearing onesies that explain what this whole breastfeeding thing is about. And there are some hilarious (and adorable) choices out there for moms!

    Do you ever feel like a broken record when you're talking to your kids? Don't touch that! Look both ways! Don't talk to strangers! Have heart, moms! A 7-year-old girl is being called a hero for saving her younger cousin from a creepy kidnapper, and she says it's the safety advice her mom drummed into her head that inspired her to do it. Little A-nari Taylor was playing with 4-year-old Brandon Mincey outside his apartment in Miami earlier this summer when cops say a 39-year-old guy named David Moore walked up to the kids shouting strange messages about God. Then things got really freaky -- cops say Moore grabbed little Brandon and tried to take off.

    It's a sad commentary on the state of our judicial system, but it's hardly surprising to hear that a just-released sex offender has already been locked up again, accused of attacking a teen girl on a bus in California. But perhaps even sadder is the surprise surrounding the girl's protectors. All five men who jumped in to do battle against Kevin Long happen to be homeless. You know ... homeless ... like the guy you step over when you walk down the street. Be honest. We've all done it ... or something like it.

    Ever wonder the difference between everyday joes and the guys behind bars? It's pretty simple. We regular folks joke about how we'd like to do stupid things. The husband who takes a tomato and shoves it in his wife's mouth to shut her up? He's the kind of guy who ends up with a pair of metal bracelets. That's what happened to Dennis Eskew. The Montana man is accused of grabbing a green tomato and forcing it into his wife's mouth during an argument, to the point where she gagged. Naturally cops asked him why the heck he'd do such a thing.

    If a news ticker could sigh, it probably would have yesterday when the words "Lindsay Lohan arrested again" came flashing across it. Along with Amanda Bynes, who seems to have caught the same case of irresponsible driver-itus, Lohan's had so many mishaps behind the wheel that it's almost funny ... except it's not, is it? Not really. And I can't help wondering if all the accidents these young actresses are getting into with very little consequence, and all the jokes surrounding them, aren't having a devastating effect on our teenagers. They're young, they're eager to get behind the wheel of a car, they're cocky about their abilities, and they don't seem to have much respect for just how serious it is to be in a situation like Lohan's or Bynes'.

    Gleeks, it's all making sense now. Teasing us with a Finchel-free Glee premiere last week was a little awkward. But one bar of Britney Spears out of Lea Michele, and the plan is now coming together. Now that her high school fantasy of happily ever after is gone, we finally get to see Rachel Berry grow up. And I do mean grow up. Rachel has gone sexy with a capital S-E-X-Y. It all came together with the help of one Britney Spears and her classic (can we call it that?) "Oops I Did It Again" and more importantly -- as far as Finchel's concerned anyway -- the seriously hot NYADA junior she met in the showers in her first week.

    The reasons I have an only child are many, and many of them are extremely personal. But with the debate swirling over the increasing number of parents who are playing around with gender selection so they can get that one baby girl or that one little boy they say they "need," I think it's time to open up a little. We have a multimillion-dollar industry on our hands with people paying as much as $18,000 to ensure they get the "right" answer come sonogram time. I don't get it. And yet, I do. I've been there. I have an only child because I couldn't guarantee a girl the second time.

    Who hasn't thought about running away, starting fresh, building a new life? A word to the wise: do not take the Christopher Vaughn route to starting over. The Illinois dad is facing life in prison after a jury convicted him of killing his entire family so he could move to Canada with a stripper. The details of his crime are so brutal I'm not surprised the jury took less than an hour to come back with a guilty verdict. The prosecutors say Vaughn told his wife and three children that they were going on a vacation to a waterpark. Sounds like fun, huh?

    It has been a rough month for Teen Mom star Maci Bookout. First her TV show ends (seriously, MTV, can we call it over now or do you have a FOURTH finale special up your sleeve?). Then she and boyfriend Kyle King break up -- for the second time. And now she's got to deal with her ex-boyfriend and her first love getting all buddy buddy. I've got one word for that: Awkward! There hasn't been much detail on why Maci and Kyle called it quits this time. We know (courtesy of one of those MTV finales) that they split earlier this year because he was getting chummy with other girls online. But now that they're once again broken up, Kyle's got a new chum in mind: Ryan Edwards, aka Bentley's dad, aka Maci's former fiance.

    Have you ever seen one of those "if you see something, say something" commercials? They've cropped up since 9/11, a reminder that if something feels "off," it probably is. I can't help thinking of them since I read the story of Mitch Comer, the Georgia teen who cops say was imprisoned by his mom and stepdad in the basement for the past four years, then exiled. When Mitch turned 18, cops say, his stepdad gave him a list of homeless shelters and put him on a cross-country bus. The only reason we know any of this is because Mitch got lucky. A security guard at the bus station in California where this poor kid ended up took one look at this malnourished kid standing in front of him, and he called the cops.

    Teenagers and sex. It happens ... much more than we parents ever want to think about. And as the secret that Teen Mom star Maci Bookout let slip during one of her recent teen pregnancy prevention speeches reminds us, it doesn't always go down the way it does in after-school specials. Remember those? You'd come running in from the bus to watch some sappy movie with a capital m Message? Anyway, those specials are the kind that fuel the ridiculous notion that teenage boys are sex-crazed lunatics and teenage girls are delicate flowers who are just trying oh so hard to keep the boys at bay. Not so. Just ask Maci.
