THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!
There's a park right across the street from our house. We've been avoiding the park because there is a kid who is a bit rough at the park. He's pretty aggressive towards the other kids. He kicks and pushes other kids. He doesn't have much guidance. A few weeks ago I was there with my kids and this bully was being mean to everyone. I scolded him and he didn't seem to care. I asked him to behave or go home. He said “I don't have to listen to you. You can't touch me or my dad will sue your pants off” He went on to tell me his dad is an attorney and he doesn't care if he's rough with others because he's raising him to be tough.
OK. I'm not raising my kids to be wimpy, but I also don't think they need to be pushed around. We've been avoiding the park and going to a different area on nice days. My kids want to go to this park, but I see the bully there being a bully, so I avoid it. What would you do as a parent knowing there's a good chance he'd push or hit your kid? Am I teaching my kids to be wimpy by avoiding the little jerk? Should we go back over and record him being mean so I have evidence? I'm so confused. It would just be nice to be able to enjoy the nice days while we have them.

No one wants to do household chores, but there may be a bright side to it – aside from having a clean and tidy home. One in 4 people say it helped them bond with their parents. In a survey, 7 in 10 people said they have a strong relationship with their parents and spending quality time together (61%) was the main reason for it. And yes, that quality time includes doing household chores. The survey of 2,000 people in the US by OnePoll also found that 64% found comfort in doing tasks the way they learned from their parents. The top tip that people learned from their parents? That would be not to dust around items, but to pick them up and dust all around. And 70% said they learned to wash dishes in a specific order: silverware, glasses, plates, and then pots and pans. Six in 10 still follow the habit of “putting the kitchen to bed,” meaning they clean the kitchen before leaving it. And among the survey respondents, 56% said they would choose to do chores as a way to spend time with their families.

average homeowner encounters a bug or other pest about 5 times per
week, both inside and outside their home, according to a survey. And
when bugs cross their path, 15% go into “exterminator mode”,
immediately squishing a bug, regardless of where they see it —
inside or outside. The survey of 2,000 Americans also found that 43%
said if bugs or pests are found inside their home, only then would
they kill it. A third (32%) will do the same only to bugs they see
outside. 22% would call in a professional or get someone else to
squish it for them.

Brooke Burke dropped a bombshell revelation about her time as a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars” in 2008, admitting that she not only had a thing for pro partner Derek Hough at the time — she was tempted to engage in a “love affair” with him. Speaking on Cheryl Burke’s “Sex, Lies and Spray Tans” podcast, Brooke said: “I was crushing on Derek, for sure.” That confession prompted a shocked response from Cheryl, who noted that Hough often told her how “hot” he thought Brooke was at the time. Brooke continued, saying: “Had I not been married, I would have actually hoped we would have had a love affair.”
According to a report, the “Dancing With the Stars” producers were disappointed in Jamie Lynn Spears’ elimination on October 3. The competition show bosses were apparently hoping Spears would last longer, so they could potentially reconnect the actress with her estranged sister Britney Spears on air. A source said: “They really thought that they would have had a chance to get Britney to the ballroom and come(on) to the show — to not only support her sister but (also) support her book release.”
Part of the original cast of “Mean Girls” have reunited for a new on-screen project — and it’s not the upcoming movie musical adaptation. Over the weekend, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried and Lacey Chabert were spotted on set, notably without the 4th member of The Plastics, Rachel McAdams. Just Jared showed pics of Lohan holding a clutch that reads, “Plastics Club Member, Est 2004” with the tagline from the movie: “On Wednesdays we wear pink.” TMZ spotted the women in a convertible and on a football field. It’s rumored the 3 are filming a Pepsi commercial for that could air during the Super Bowl.

Apple has a “secret police” force called the Worldwide Loyalty Team that makes sure no employees leak something.
Here’s some info that could come in “handy”. And I’m sorry for just delivering the worst pun, ever. A British psychologist says that the secret to weight-loss may lie in…eating with your wrong hand, Professor Richard Wiseman, who teaches at the University of Hertfordshire, says that using your non-dominant hand for eating will likely lead to less food consumption, because doing so takes longer, and forces you to be more mindful, because you need to “sort out coordination issues”.
That myth of being “fat but fit”? Yeah, it’s been debunked by a new study. German researchers found that obese individuals, even if they appear healthy, are still 50% more susceptible to coronary heart disease – and are also much more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes. The researchers say that weight management and recommendations for weight loss are important for people living with “metabolically healthy obesity”.

University of Surrey scientists investigated the association between age and internet usage, and found that the younger you are, the more likely you are to be addicted to the internet. Their survey found that those 24 years or younger averaged 6 hours per day online, while those older than 24 only spent an average of 4. And based on their research, the scientists were able to categorize screen users into 5 groups. Where do you rank on the scale of internet addiction?
