    One last comment.. alot of you need to get off of your high pedestals about casting blame on the mother. Isn't she suffering enough? My first child was easy and stayed by my side. My second threw me f more »

    I can understand why the initial search focused on the water. However, why didn't authorities take action on every potential scenario, and issue an amber alert (or any kind of alert) as soon as the re more »

    Also, next time ask for a more private place in the restaurant to sit.  For example, a booth where you won't be facing other diners.  A booth would also be much more comfortable!  more »

    A restaurant is not a public place.  It is a privately owned space and can be run by the management as they choose (generally).  Why don't you just 'pump' milk so you can use a bottle when out, or try more »

    The article is about hungry children. All of the nasty commentors here should be ashamed of yourselves. The parents may be honest and hard-working, or may be mentally ill, neglectful, lazy, etc. But t more »

    I've read some of the research related to the 'clean theory'. It made me think about the fact that the same kids who experience more of their 'environmental dirt' would also most likely experience les more »

    Thank you for sharing Magrocks and all other mothers who have removed themselves and their children from horrible situations! You are definitely strong and have made the right choice for you and your more »

    Antonio's has just about the best pizza in Massachusetts. It's so sad this happened. Since when are crimes blamed on a victim? Antonios is a small and amazing restaurant. Even if they did get a 'down more »

    Should I not get a SS card for my next child? Maybe that is the way to go in this state. more »

    Patrick, please focus on making our schools a vital, engaging place for students to learn. Please make our public universities affordable for the legal citizens of Massachusetts. This is going to crum more »

    Can a list of those who purchased the book please be provided to a law enforcement agency by Amazon? I think that the purchase of this book would be a red flag. more »

    Is youth hockey really that bad? The kids don't check or do anything aggressive if they are on a non-travel team. It's pretty much ice skating with a stick. It seems a little safer than the girls who more »

    So, why have we been saving and sacrificing (bought a smaller house than we could have and saved a large percentage of income rather than driving an SUV, sending kids to expensive camps/classes, etc)? more »

    I ask my son to tell me two real things that happened at school and one pretend thing. My job is to guess which item is made up. He loves this game, and plays every time! It often gets to any unusual more »

    So, I probably can't afford a macmansion... However, my kids are still little and just want to be close to me ALL of the time. I'm pretty sure that we would all be in the same room all of the time no more »

    I've been a resident of both areas. As a young adult/teenager, I would pick the Cape hands down (think Outer Cape- Beachcomber!). As an adult/parent, I love love love that there are so many small priv more »

    A little off the subject - but I think it is quite tacky to have serious ex-boyfriends (not the mostly friends kind from middle-school) and ex-lovers (especially exlovers as this was your only previou more »

    erinwm - I don't know what goes on in classrooms on a daily basis. I only know what goes on in my son's classroom, and I am an involved parent. He gets to see quite a few videos. His teacher is great more »

    Can the schools do their part, and stop showing videos to the kids during classtime? They would help to make up some time.

    Maybe the event should be moved to the summer, or to a school holiday. more »

    Sometimes at this age it is about texture.  My daughter actually starting using a fork/spoon herself early on because she didn't like how the food felt on her fingers.  I went with the classic advice more »
