Mikaila Ulmer, a 10-year-old girl from Texas, is the face of a thriving lemonade business. No, it's not just a well-trafficked stand in her parents front yard, but a full-fledged company—BeeSweet Lemonade—that just got a $60K investment on Shark Tank.
Does Tuesday morning seem like a weird time for a dance party? Not if you're ENTHUSIASTIC about it!
There comes a day when you realise you cannot continue as the child you are now — fashioned in an unfashionable decade by your poor parents, and at a time when they were inadvisably discombobulated by Caesarian stitches, fundamental disagreements with their own parents, retrospectively laughable hair-cuts, and utter…

Hey, criminals of the world—don't steal from elementary school students.
What were your major accomplishments at 14? Mine was getting my locker moved closer to my best friend, Alexa (because we had important INXS-related notes to share with each other, OK?)

Fifteen days ago, we heard about South Carolina mom Debra Harrell, who was arrested when her 9-year-old daughter was found playing in a park alone.

Oh No. What Will We Do.
Emmett (toddler) and Erling (WWII Vet) bonded over a tomato patch. Now they're best friends who ride bikes, play croquet (omgomgomg), and race mowers. This is probably going to turn into a TV movie and I will watch it and cry every time I have a bad day. (Which is most days because I am a grumpy and disagreeable…
The recent event in Waukesha, WI where two 12-year-old girls repeatedly stabbed a peer in order appease the mythical Slender Man had all the ingredients to send grownups into a good old fashioned "won't someone please think of the children?" freakout: violence, lost innocence, a dangerous internet element.…
We're halfway through 2014 and there have been more than 3400 whooping cough cases reported in California during that period of time. This is way more than in 2013, when the epidemic started. And yes, you can thank anti-vaxxers for that.

"In the night, you can't really do anything and a dream is a good way to fill up a chunk of time," explains Jack, a little boy who was asked to describe dreams for WNYC as a part of the Clock Your Sleep project. The kid's not wrong.
Looks like there's a lil' lice breakout happening behind the scenes of Broadway's Matilda. The news isn't terribly shocking considering just how many kids are in the cast, but it's still the teensiest bit horrifying. Think about it — all those lice, all those wigs.
Students at Avon High School in Indiana posted a video to YouTube over the weekend to show off their school pride and it absolutely has to be seen to be believed.
Sasha Obama: Teen. Observe President Obama's daughter in China with her mother, grandma and sister above, Sasha is not here for it. She's not here for any of it. Her face brings back memories of every crappy family vacation you ever had to endure. We feel you, Sasha.
