Almost a week ago, Seven-year-old Yamato Tanooka was left on the side of the road near a "bear-infested" forest in Hokkaido, Japan. The search began after the missing boy dissapeared into the forest, thinking his parents had left him for good as punishment for throwing rocks at cars and visitors at a nearby park.  Miraculously, this little boy was found ALIVE and relatively unharmed after six nights alone in the forest.

Yamato managed to survive in the forest for so long after stumbling upon a hut used during training for the Japanese military. He did not have any food or heating but he did manage to keep warm by sleeping between two mattresses.  He also had access to clean water nearby.  For now, he's being kept for observation under a doctors orders but seems to be doing fine. This event has sparked debate over where normal parental punishment can cross the line into abuse with most people on social media condemning his parents for leaving him.

The display of Nick from Zootopia had only been up for an hour at the LEGO Expo in Ningbo, China before a chinese boy decided to push it over.

Zhao, the artist who spent three days piecing together the Zootopia figure, said he was heartbroken but declined compensation. Noting that the child had not meant to destroy LEGO Nick.

All in all, the life size LEGO figurine is estimated to cost more than 100,000 yuan ($15,170).

On May 19, baby Zyla strapped into a set of skies (bolted together for safety) and water-skied for over 600 feet. Her parents, both being professional barefoot water skiers and co-owners of the World Barefoot Center in Florida, were possibly the only two parents in the world who could make this sound like a good idea.

Take a look at their Christmas card this year for an idea of this family's passion for the water.

The description that was posted with this picture on Facebook reads:

We are celebrating today because Lauren has gone one week without someone saying something mean to her about baby weight gain. That's a new record. Big day is only 9 weeks away!

A week without having something mean said to her is a new record? Great job, guys, way to get someone excited about bringing a new baby into the world. At least the comments seem more supportive, so it's not all bad.

This 'Cool Mom', in Florida of course, arranged for a stripper to be the entertainment for her son's 8th birthday party. That's right, the child was turning 8-years old, and she got him a stripper.



In the long run, it's debatable which would be more damaging later in life, a stripper or a clown at your birthday party. My money would be on the stripper (literally) though.
