The Boulder County Sheriff's Office is crediting a teenage Boy Scout for his quick thinking in administering aid to an injured man. The teen was riding on his ATV when he discovered a man bleeding heavily from what appeared to be a self-inflicted wrist injury, reports Huffington Post. The brave Boy Scout stayed with the 46-year-old man until medical help arrived.

How often do we hear about teens who do something good? The news is often filled with all of the negative incidents that occur with our youth today. I can't tell you how many times I have read on these posts how the youth of today is so corrupt. Here we have a story about something positive and heroic that a young man did and all people can do is focus on the negative. This young man deserves respect and applause for what he has done. I find it sad and disrespectful that some are just harping on gay politics here and are giving no consideration for what this young man has done.
Good Grief!!! The Scout saved someone's life that had tried to commit suicide! Bravo for the teen! The Scouts (Boy & Girl) are great programs! Do we really have to interject sex into everything? BTW, I hope the Scout gets a commendation and the other guy gets some needed help. Do you folks really have to tear apart every story??? P.S. I was a Girl Scout.

When it comes to holiday giving, it's the thought that counts, which is why homemade gifts from kids are so treasured by their mothers. Children might not have money to spend on an expensive piece of jewelry or designer handbag, but they do have the time to DIY something special for their number one fan. If you're in charge of helping the little ones think of presents, check out the above list of homemade gifts for mom. From a custom vase to Instagram coasters to Warhol-inspired wall art, we have something for every taste and skill level.
At our household, we have a large, diverse collection of toys. While I’m not as uptight as my husband on what enters our kids’ toy chest, my husband must approve all toy acquisitions mostly because of aesthetics (appearance is important). In our search for functional and stylish toys, the sustainable ones often have the best design, and appeal to the visual and tactile senses or improve fine motor skills such as dexterity and hand coordination. Here are a few of our family favorites that intrigue and hold our little ones’ attention—and look good, too.
Worried that a violent video game might sneak its way into your shopping cart during the holidays? Before you make it to the register, make sure you're armed with all the information you need regarding your child's games. Just because your well-meaning thirteen-year-old promises you that the game he's about to buy with the gift card from Uncle Mike is totally chill, doesn't mean it's good for kids. Do your research ahead of time to avoid any game store drama. And have a chat with your offspring before the big day; let them know that you're going to have to green light their choices before they get their hearts set on any particular item. At the end of the day, you're just being a good parent. Some of the games on the market now may look OK at first glance, but are actually quite objectionable. Trust us: We've done our homework and we're here to give you the ultimate low-down. Check out this slideshow for all the games to steer clear of this season. Don't say we didn't warn you.
