'Children welcome - as long as they stay seated, don't cry, eat off plastic plates and don't go to the toilet on their own': Restaurant's forbidding list of rules for customers with young ones sparks online anger
A restaurant has ordered parents to keep their children quiet at all times or they will be asked to leave.
The list of rules for diners at the Mediterranean restaurant in Llandudno, North Wales, also says youngsters must be 'seated at all times', accompanied to the toilet and eat off plastic plates.
The business scores four out of five stars on TripAdvisor, and ranked as one of the five best in the area.
It was posted online by charity worker Helen Hyland, reports The Sun, 52, from Stirling, Scotland, who was on holiday in the Welsh resort.
In The Future, Will Your Kids Be Able To Sue You For Oversharing Online?
Last month, Gwyneth Paltrow got herself into a bit of parenting pickle with her daughter Apple on Instagram when she shared a ski selfie of her and the teen with her 5.4 million followers. Apparently, she did not receive permission to post the photo, which irked the 14-year-old.
“Mom we have discussed this,” Apple, whose own profile is private, shared in the comments section of Paltrow’s post. “You may not post anything without my consent.”
The media jumped on the story of the “nonconsensual selfie” ? a tale that dovetailed nicely with another news story centered on a celeb oversharer that developed a few days later, when the singer Pink drew the ire of some on the internet after sharing an image of her 2-year-old son, sans diaper. In a second revised post, a strategic black scribble covered the toddler’s private parts.
Neighbors come together after Charleston family's pride flag is burned
A family in Charleston, South Carolina, said their rainbow pride flag was torn down from the front of their house and burned in their driveway last weekend.
“We were taken aback and thought, ‘Wow, somebody must be really bothered by this to go to this end here to do this.’ But we called the police to let them know about it,” the homeowner, who lives with his wife and three young children, told NBC News.
“There's people on our street that have South Carolina flags, United States flags, different college flags, garden flags … obviously the rainbow is what attracted them to ours,” the homeowner, who asked that his name not be printed to protect his family’s safety and privacy, added. “I wouldn't be surprised if the people who did this didn't even know who we were or who lived in the home, that it was just the fact that it was a rainbow flag, and they didn't agree with that.”
Ask Amy: Recovering mom doesn't want dog at home
Dear Amy: For the past 2 ½ years my son (now 9) has been asking for a dog. I’ve been saying no because while I like dogs, I prefer them in other people’s houses.
I didn’t want to take on the considerable expense and care for a dog.
Four months ago, I had a brain aneurysm. Thankfully, I am OK and recovering. However, during my recovery in the hospital I thought I was dying and that it would be a good idea for my son to have a dog to love and care for in the event that I did die.
I was coming off of anesthesia and on a lot of pain medication. I feel confident in saying that at the time, I was not in my right mind.

Imagine Dragon's Dan Reynolds on living with 'frustrating' ankylosing spondylitis
Dan Reynolds is much more than the face of 'Imagine Dragons' and a dad of (almost!) four. The 31-year-old frontman of the Grammy-winning band is also campaigning to bring awareness to the painful and hidden disease that is ankylosing spondylitis (AS), which he was diagnosed with in his early 20s.
"I didn't know what the problem was," Reynolds says of his diagnosis process. "I wasn't diagnosed for so long...and the pain just continued and continued and that was super frustrating." The Vegas native was one of the millions living with the disease without realizing it. By that point, he was willing to try anything to alleviate the pain.
THE HIDDEN STIGMA IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY
Whether it was Slavery, Jim Crow, The Crack Epidemic, or Mass Incarceration, the suffering that Black people endured seems to have been never-ending. With that being said, the trauma that many of us have faced since the beginning of modern western civilization takes its toll on one’s mental health.
The stigma of dealing with the continuous cycle of the demonization of addressing one’s mental health in the Black community is one that prevents those seeking help to enhance their lives and, in some cases, to save them. Toxic masculinity is another contribution to this stigma as Black children, especially little boys, are told that expressing any sort of emotion is a sign of weakness. This conditioning can harbor psychological health issues for years to come.
According to the US HHS Office of Minority Health, adult African-Americans are 20% more likely to state that they are suffering from psychological distress than their adult white counterparts. This is due to less than 2% of the American Psychological Association being African-American, which leads many African-Americans to distrust mental health care practitioners to help them with their issues.
Man on the run after using machete to kill 10-year-old daughter and wife, police say
Police are searching for a South Florida man who allegedly killed his wife and their 10-year-old daughter with a machete during a fight over the couple's impending divorce.
Investigators said Noel Chambers, a 57-year-old native of Jamaica, launched a brutal attack late Saturday evening when his wife, Lorrice Harris, returned home from celebrating her 49th birthday.
A 911 caller reported the dispute at around 11:30 p.m., according to police. Officers arrived to the couple's home in Miami Gardens, Florida, about 17 miles northwest of Miami, where they discovered the bodies of young Shayla Chambers and her mother inside, police said.
Shayla was found lying in her bed and Harris was discovered on the home's back porch, police said. The couple's older daughter, 29-year-old Shanalee Chambers, managed to escape and was rushed to the hospital with stab wounds, according to police.
Instagram Influencer Mom Leaves Kids and Husband in Coach While She Flies First Class
This Instagram influencer mom is not afraid to leave her family in the back of the plane while she flies first class.
Naomi Isted, a fashion blogger and TV presenter from Essex, U.K., who has 94,400 followers on Instagram, told INSIDER that she travels every six weeks on average for work, and if she’s booked in an economy seat, she’ll always “try to upgrade if there’s scope to do so.”
However, if her children are traveling with her, she will upgrade alone because she believes that, at ages 3 and 9 years old, they’re too young too appreciate the amenities of first class.
“I never personally experienced business or first until I was presenting a wine TV show in my 20s,” Isted, 40, told INSIDER, adding that a person shouldn’t fly first class until they are old enough to “appreciate and understand the value of money and hard work.”
Migrant 10-year-old sexually assaulted, given drugs in custody, lawsuit says
A Guatemalan father filed a lawsuit against two nonprofits housing migrant children, claiming his 10-year-old son was given “powerful psychotropic drugs” without parental consent and sexually assaulted by another child during his time in government custody.
The father, identified only as J. E. B., claimed in the lawsuit filed in state court in Texas last week that both Southwest Key and Shiloh Treatment Center in Texas “acted with fraud, malice, and gross neglect” in their treatment of his son.
The lawsuit also claims that the boy, identified as F.C.B. in the suit, was subjected to physical assault, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress by both facilities.

Parkland Students Share Mental Health Resources to Support Each Other
After two Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students died by apparent suicides in the span of just a week, current and former students at the school are calling on the Parkland community to support its young people with mental health services. On social media, survivors are reminding us of the supports available when you're having a hard time.
Anti-gun violence activist David Hogg, who graduated from Stoneman Douglas in 2018, took to Twitter in the wake of his classmates' deaths, saying that the trauma endured after a mass shooting doesn't fade quickly.
"Stop saying you’ll get over it,'" he wrote. "You don’t get over something that never should have happened because those that die from gun violence are stolen from us not naturally lost. Trauma and loss don’t just go away, you have to learn to live with it through getting support."

Addiction and Recovery: When Your Parents are the Problem
I was 13.
My mother seated us in the back so that we could read and fidget without distracting the others. We weren’t the only kids there, but there weren’t many of us. We didn’t have family to watch us, and looking back, I realize how hard my mother must have worked to heal — while raising children. But it didn’t always work so well, sadly, as we were put into foster care later on.
The AA meetings we attended were usually pretty full. It was humbling to see so many men and women admit their weaknesses; it was heartbreaking to know that some people wouldn’t make it back.

Family Says Dog Died Saving Them From Teen Gunman
A Houston, Texas family claims that, just over a week ago, their dog saved their lives after a gunman busted into their home while food was being prepped for their 13-year-old's birthday party. He allegedly opened fire after a confrontation took place where he was asked to leave. There were reportedly more than a dozen kids in attendance at the time.
Laura Martinez says the event happened on March 9 at her home, when a teen boy that the family was familiar with entered the home with a gun. The armed teen fired eight shots, three of which struck Martinez and members of her family. According to a GoFundMe, one bullet hit Martinez in her leg, another hit her son, Taylor Hollier, in his foot, and two struck her stepdaughter, Valerie Pace, with one going into her thigh and the other hitting next to her spine.
Who Should Own Photos of Slaves? The Descendants, not Harvard, a Lawsuit Says
The two slaves, a father and daughter, were stripped to the waist and positioned for frontal and side views. Then, like subjects in contemporary mug shots, their pictures were taken, as part of a racist study arguing that black people were an inferior race.
Almost 170 years later, they are at the center of a dispute over who should own the fruits of American slavery.
The images of the father and daughter, identified by their first names, Renty and Delia, were commissioned by a professor at Harvard and are now stored in a museum on campus as precious cultural artifacts.
But to the Lanier family, they are records of her personal family history. “These were our bedtime stories,” Shonrael Lanier said.
