Bad to the Bone: The Worst Children in Literature

Children are a blessing, and most of them are the greatest part of family life, in reality and in fiction. But some authors have a habit of creating horrific fictional children that not even a mother could love.

Be warned, some of these books have the potential to be distressing, particularly for parents.

Brides' Books Revisited: Weddings in Literature

With all due respect to the grooms, weddings are really about the brides. Authors agree. There are few novels about bridegrooms but there are thousands about brides. In fact, AbeBooks has almost 150,000 listings where the word ‘bride’ is mentioned in the title.

I am a mom of a teenage son, who I have been mostly raising on my own for the past 16 years. When my boy was a toddler I wanted to get out and meet other moms and tots. I joined some local community groups and starting doing volunteer work. I became involved with a new young parents organization. I assisted in writing the newsletter, organizing events, parenting workshops and groups. Then with the support and connections I made in the community, I joined forces with 3 other women and started a children’s thrift store. It was child friendly, with a play area for the kids, a coffee bar and resource library for the parents. I am grateful for all the opportunities I was given, I was able to gain skills and better myself, while having my son close by.
