“According to Babson Survey Research Group’s last survey of online education programs at colleges and universities, 6.1 million students took at least one online class in fall 2010—a 10.1 percent increase over the previous year. But as the number of students in online courses increases, so too does the potential for cheating.

3. Even as babies, boys are obsessed with their penises. That being said, you have to pay attention during diaper changes or you’ll get shot in the eye.

4. Kids look to you to know how to respond to stress. If they fall down and you stay calm, they stay calm. If you freak, they freak.
