People are helping a dad explain his ‘cheap’ grocery purchases to his 11-year-old daughter

Even though parents may try to shield their children from tough topics such as economics and social status, they develop their own sense of them as they age. Studies show that children as young as 5 know the difference between being poor, middle-class or wealthy.

By age 11, children are fully conscious of brands and see them as the “dominant feature in their product categorization compared with other perceptual attributes.”

A father was recently embarrassed by his 11-year-old daughter at the supermarket when she called him out for buying generic products instead of brand names. He shared the story on Reddit’s Mildly Infuriating forum, where many commenters shared advice on teaching preteens about household economics.

Lead singer of heavy metal band ‘Disturbed’ comforts upset child in the middle of concert

Most people remember their first concert. Mine was TLC and Boyz 2 Men, and no, I’m not talking about their comeback tour. It was the 90s and I almost broke my leg trying to climb over folding seats in the pouring rain trying to get under the venue’s awning. Pretty sure we only had lawn seats and were probably breaking some sort of law climbing to better seats.

Either way, going to a concert can be an exhilarating experience but it can also be a bit overwhelming. Everything’s loud. The music. The people. Everything. When you’re a child, not yet old enough to head off to a concert with friends, it can be even more overstimulating than it is for adults.

One little girl found herself feeling a bit upset while attending a concert with her parents for the heavy metal band “Disturbed.” But it was what happened when the lead singer noticed the frightened girl that’s melting hearts across the internet.

12 years later people still can’t forget Matt Damon’s passionate defense of teachers

A video from over 12 years ago of actor Matt Damon supporting teachers is going viral again because it’s a passionate defense of educators in the face of cynicism. Damon accompanied his mother, Nancy Carlsson-Paige, a leading early childhood education advocate, at the Save Our Schools Rally on July 30, 2011, where a reporter from Reason approached him.

Reason is a libertarian media outlet with a long history of embracing school choice.

The reporter approached Damon and attempted to contrast an actor’s career with that of a teacher. “There isn’t job security, right? There’s an incentive to work hard and be a better actor because you want to have a job, so why isn’t it like that for teachers?” the reporter asked.

Mom’s epic quest to rescue her son’s pet frog has become a viral sensation

How’s this for the world’s greatest understatement? Moms do a lot for their kids.

Seriously, beyond the obvious sacrifices of, you know, bringing a child into this world through their own body, moms go to almost cartoonish lengths to keep their little ones happy and safe—quite literally wrangling wild animals if they have to.

Or, in this case, luring them out with crickets.
