Your tooth health is likelier related to your genetics than the fact that your mom didn't drink enough broth in pregnancy. Hope you get regular cleanings!

It is legal for a woman to be topless non-commercially in my province of Ontario. A woman named Gwen Jacobs was convicted of indecency after going topless in 1996, but won her appeal. Subsequent...

You are not protected from being "exposed to her" because you don't need protection. Nobody does, because seeing a breastfeeding mother is harmless. The fact that you don't like it doesn't really...

Yes, you do, but somebody breastfeeding in the same room as you is not considered harassment and could not be legally proved to be harassment in any state.

If she's never brought the baby to class before, it seems that she regularly has childcare for her infant, so, as I said in my previous post, this isn't an issue of whether to have a child at class...

I find it very suspicious that your husband does not like your son to do chores with you. Does your husband help with the chores himself? That's what I want to know.

Who are these kids taking singing lessons that are singing pop tunes? Whatever happened to choir and opera?
