children: July 2011 Archives


A young baseball fan who failed to get his hands on a foul ball during a recent game went into such a sulk that he became the focus of the live TV coverage.


The lad had been enjoying a recent Dodgers v Giants game when a foul ball came hurtling towards him.

However his enjoyment appeared to take a plunge when a woman sat in front of him made the catch and celebrated by waving the ball and he went into his best sulk angrily folding his arms.

His sulk was so severe the camera kept cutting to him and the announcers commentating on the game were talking more about him than the action on the field.



Here is a video of a young child saying the words 'fox' 'on' 'the' 'beach' - and that might not sound like much, but we defy you to press play and not laugh.

The 14 second clip of two-year-old Keira Roshuk has recently gone viral because well, it sounds like she's saying something completely different.

While we all know she's really saying "Fox on the Beach" all we can hear is "F**k the b***h" -- not exactly the sort of thing you expect a two-year-old to say.

And while we try to work out whether we should have included a bad language warning at the top of the article, why don't you check out so other kids saying  innocent phrases below.

275x250.jpgMore than half of British parents snoop on their children's online activity, a study has revealed.
 

Researchers found millions of mums and dads resort to checking up on their youngsters' goings-on on Facebook, looking through sent emails and internet history.
 
A recent study of 2,000 Brits found that 55 per cent of parents 'keep an eye' on a son or daughter by checking their social networking profile.
 
Four in ten parents admitted to regularly checking their children's social media status updates, 39% use Facebook to see who's been posting messages to their children, and 29% look through tagged images.
 
The number would probably be considerably higher… if so many parents didn't need to ask their children who to spy on someone online.

275x250.jpg David and Vitoria have had a baby girl and called her 'Harper Seven' prompting much online debate about where the name came from… so let's join in.

When David Beckham revealed the name on his Facebook page, many people questioned whether it was a case of Victoria giving a nod to fashion magazine Harpers Bazaar. But that was before it was pointed out that little Harper isn't the first celebrity off-spring with the name -- Dave Grohl, Neil Patrick Harris and Lisa Marie Presley got there first.

But it's also been suggested the name might have been inspired by a character from Disney series Wizards Of Waverly Place, which the Beckham boys are said to be fans of.

As for the name 'Seven' the general consensus is it's a celebration of Beckham's number when he played for Manchester United… though we like the idea he got it from George Costanza.



A boy in Brazil has baffled doctors by having an apparently magnetic chest. Paolo David has unsurprisingly also been given the nickname 'Magnet Boy'.


11-year-old Paulo is said to have discovered his odd ability after his father asked him to fetch a knife and fork and they suddenly stuck to his chest.

Since then the youngster and his family have had plenty of fun sticking scissors, spoons, coins, mobile phones and even saucepans to his 'magnetic' body.

Doctors say they're baffled by the magnetic properties of the young lad and have no idea what causes it… though they do enjoy sticking their clipboards to him.

275x250.jpg Little Rachel Warren was trying to copy her pet dog when she shoved her head through the garden gate… but unlike the rottweiler Tess, Rachel couldn't get back out.

As a result the four-year-old had to be rescued by firefighters who pried the black gate apart to release her.

Mom Carlene, from Brierley Hill in the West Midlands, says she was taking Rachel to nursery and had just put her reins on when she started pretending to be a dog and ran outside.

The next thing she knew, she heard a loud noise, went out to investigate and found her daughter lodged between the black railings.

275x250.jpg A dad and fitness expert has scored a publishing hit after writing a book telling other fathers how to turn their new babies into effective gym equipment.

Joshua Levitt says he came up with the idea for 'Baby Barbells' after realising there was less time to hit the gym following the birth of his own children.

When lying on his back and lifting his daughter up from his chest in a bid to soothe her, he realised he was getting a workout from the accidental baby bench press.

From there he developed an entire exercise routine, including moves called lullaby lunges and peek-a-boo pop-ups, which he claims will help keep new dads fit… especially if they have a porky baby.

275x250.jpg An artist has scored an online hit by recreating children's drawings of monsters as amazingly realistic painted artworks.

Dave Devries says he came up with the idea more than ten years ago when his niece filled his sketchbook with doodles and he wondered what it would be like if he painted them.

The illustrator and art director from New Jersey later decided to give it a go and used colour, texture and shading to give a 3D effect to the young artist's drawing.

And that was it, after seeing how cool the result was, he wanted to do more and got the kids of family and friends to produce their versions of monsters for him.
