    All right moms, it's time for a tough question. Say you have a teenage daughter and she wants to shop at Victoria's Secret. What do you do? Stick your fingers in your ears and sing "na, na, nuh, na, na" and pretend your girl isn't growing up? Or do you suck it up and drive her to the mall? Maybe this will help you make up your mind.

    It's the one piece of artwork seen by millions of people every single day. Any guesses? If you guessed the Google Doodle, give yourself a pat on the back. Then call the kids into the room.  Your kid's art can go from the refrigerator to the front page of the most trafficked search engine in the world. Just. Like. That. It's called Google 4 Doodle, and The Stir got the skinny on how to get your little artist the coveted spot on Google's front page.

    Hide yo kids! Hide yo wife! Hide yo husband! There is an escaped grizzly cub running around a residential neighborhood in Florida. And here those of us living outside of the Sunshine State thought the alligators sounded scary! The grizzly, who goes by the seemingly innocuous name of Boo Boo, is a pet, legally owned by animal trainer Dexter Osborn. And the trainer seems to have done everything right -- at least as right as things can be when you have a grizzly bear for a pet!

    Ready for some more Jenelle Evans pregnancy news? The Teen Mom already has a baby name picked out. Yup, just one name. She's only just started her pregnancy, but Jenelle Evans says she already knows what she's having! But wait a second; husband Courtland Rogers only just shared her six-week sonogram. How could she already know the gender of her baby? Believe it or not, I'm buying what Jenelle and her hubs are selling here.

    Remember what it was like to be a teenager? When you didn't believe a word your parents had to say, but whatever you heard from your friends was gospel? And we wonder why year after year, decade after decade, generation after generation, the same old tired myths keep being touted as fact. Sure, we eventually learned that you really can get pregnant even if he pulls out, and you won't lose your virginity by falling off a bike, but today's teenagers aren't there yet. Don't think your kid is dumb enough to fall for these silly myths? Don't bet your grandchild-free life on it! The Stir talked to real teens about some of the crazy things kids believe so you know what to tell your kid is a load of you-know-what:

    It's been, what, six months since the shooting inside an Aurora, Colorado theater during a midnight showing of the Dark Knight Rises? Would you believe the theater has re-opened? Not only that, but two of the victims of the July 20, 2012 massacre walked into the Century movie theater and sat down in the very seats where they were when a gunman opened fired last summer. Suspect James Holmes is now in custody and can't hurt anyone, but it takes some chutzpah to walk back into the place where you nearly died. Kaylan Bailey, 14, and Hailee Hensley, 13, are, in short, two incredibly brave young women.

    In every grade school class there is that one girl who develops way ahead of the pack. She's the envy of some, the nightmare of others, and an easy target for bullies. And for one sixth grade girl in Missouri, the bullying got really out of control when it started coming from her school administrators who told the 13-year-old to get a breast reduction! Well, the school got one thing right -- something needs to be done about the boobs. And by that I mean the administrators who would dare tell a child that their body is the problem.

    Am I the only one who thinks the backlash against consumerist kids has jumped the shark? I get it: kids do not need one million and one toys to be happy! But now we have a mom who is going on record to say that she will not buy her son a single thing in 2013. No new toys. No new clothes. Not even a haircut!

    Leave it to Sasha Obama to steal the show from her dad during the middle of his presidential inauguration. Sasha's perfectly -- or should we say imperfectly -- timed yawn has gone viral after cameras caught her looking every bit the 11 years old she is as President Barack Obama gave his inaugural address. The child didn't know it was coming. The cameras were supposed to be focused on Dad as he talked about math and science teachers, but it was in that split second when they panned to his family that we caught Sasha in her brilliant blue coat with her mouth wide open. Check her out:

    It hasn't even been a week since we learned Jenelle Evans is going to be a mother ... again, and already she's back to her old tricks. The pregnant Teen Mom 2 star accused husband of two minutes (and baby-daddy-to-be) Courtland Rogers of cheating, but it seems Jenelle has a secret of her own. And the plot thickens! Remember Gary Head? Head is her one-time fiance, and Jenelle has a court order that requires Gary to stay away from her. But since when did a little thing like a court order mean anything?

    All right moms, when you think of celebrities who are going to put their name on some baby products, who comes to mind? Jessica Alba? Snooki? How about Prince Charles? No? You didn't think immediately of Kate Middleton's father-in-law? Well shame on you! The future king of England happens to have quite the array of baby goodies out on the market. And now for the weird part.

    I've long had a theory about people and houses. Some people are movers and some people are stayers. Just look at Warren Buffett. He's a multi-billionaire businessman, and yet Buffett still lives in the exact same house he bought way back in 1958 in Omaha, Nebraska for a measly $31,500! Yes, I'm talking about THE Warren Buffett, the guy Wikipedia calls the most successful investor of the 20th century. And he's a "stayer"! Could it be that he's one of those romantics too?

    Records from a lawsuit against the Archdiocese of Los Angeles have revealed yet another cover-up of Catholic priests molesting young children. Hundreds of kids were hurt. And the diocese former Cardinal Roger Mahony wants us to be sympathetic ... with him. Mahony, who served as Cardinal from 1985 and 2011, has been named repeatedly in the lawsuit documents released to the Los Angeles Times over the weekend. The high-ranking church official is accused of opting not to defrock pedophile priests or contact the police but to send them to out-of-state treatment facilities specifically to avoid California therapists who are mandated by law to report abuse. But Mahony isn't being too hard on himself.

    Here we go again! Another teacher is facing being fired over a Facebook posting. Melissa Cairns uploaded a photo of several students with duct tape across their mouths and the words: "Finally found a way to get them to be quiet!!!" It sounds nuts. But should we really be firing this woman? I say we should be giving her a great teacher award!

    It's not the ending you'd expect for a woman who spent 12 years on the FBI's Most Wanted List, but Yvette Torres is a free woman! She won't be going to prison for kidnapping her daughter Sabrena and keeping her in Europe for more than a decade.  Parents who've considered following the Torres path, turn away, turn away now! The federal government is being extremely kind to Torres, who took off with her 2-year-old daughter in 2000 and didn't bring the girl home to dad Davis Beck here in the United States until late last year!

    It almost sounds like justice is being served down in Texas this week where a stepmom got 85 years in prison for the dehydration death of her 10-year-old stepson. Tina Alberson denied little Jonathan James water for days on end during a streak of record high temperatures. This was supposed to be punishment for "bad behavior." But does Alberson's punishment really fit the crime here? Sure, she was sentenced to 85 years for the horrendous treatment and killing of her stepson. But the lengthy prison term has less to do with the horror of the boy's death and more to do with Alberson's existing criminal record -- she once hit someone with her van ... on purpose. And then there's this disturbing tidbit.

    Better pop some popcorn, folks, the Jenelle Evans show is back on, and it's more dramatic than ever. The pregnant Teen Mom 2 star is threatening to divorce husband Courtland Rogers. Again. If it seems like just a week has passed since he told the whole world he was a proud papa-to-be, and the two were crowing about how they were going to be such wonderful parents to this kid that Jenelle would regain custody of son Jace, you're right. It's been exactly a week since the couple sold their happily ever after tale to the tabloids for an undisclosed sum. And now Jenelle has dropped two huge bombs in our lap. Ready for them? You don't want to choke on that popcorn now ... (warning, not everything is safe for work or the kids ... bad language to follow).

    It's flu season. Also known as the time of year when moms are doing everything they can think of to help a congested baby get comfortable. Have you been relying on that handy little bulb syringe to give your babe a snot-free sleep? You might want to re-think that! The latest photo to go viral on Facebook comes from a Kentucky mom who cracked open her baby's nasal aspirator. What she found inside will give moms chills.

    When I saw that Barbara Walters had a transgender tween on her show, I groaned. Here we go again, I thought, another set of parents exploiting their "different kid" to get on TV. Does 11-year-old Jazz really need the whole world weighing in on her male-to-female transformation at one of the most critical phases of childhood development? Folks, I sit here corrected. This isn't about Jazz at all. Not exactly.

    Ever since Fifty Shades of Grey arrived to rescue moms everywhere from vanilla sex, there's been a raging debate over whether moms should let their kids read the books. Not sure how you feel? Well, a judge doesn't really care what you think! Judge Raphael Queiroz Campos does not want kids reading the naughty novels, and he's ordered every copy of the novel off bookstore shelves! So much for letting parents be parents, huh?
