  • 1. Keep Your Hands To Yourself

  • Lawsuits about President Trump's alleged sexual misconduct hit the news ... again. This time, a former "Apprentice" contestant is accusing Trump of sexual assault. In response to this, and other multiple sexual harassment accusations against him, Trump said they are all "lies." His lawyers attempted to block the suit because #PresidentPrivileges. This week the court said there was no reason the lawsuit should be dismissed, meaning that Trump's presidential campaign would have to release all documents they may have regarding sexual misconduct. Trump's been accused by more than a dozen women.

  • Something to chew on when your chocolate-lipped child denies eating the last piece of cake...

  • • The big news with this story is that allegedly Trump and his lawyers tried to hush up multiple women making accusations. We've all got something we'd like to keep hidden - like how much money you spent in the dollar section at Target last week. Unfortunately, most of those things have a nasty habit of resurfacing.

  • • Ph.D. Joanne Stern said "parents often set their kids up to lie," even when they think they are creating an environment to help them tell the truth. If, however, you make it a safe conversation for them, they will be honest. Check out her sample script on how best to approach a lying child so the next time you hear yourself saying, "Are you lying to me?" you can recognize there's a better way to approach the conversation.

  • 2. I Want You Back

  • Oh, we have so missed them since they've been Gone. 'NSYNC is coming back together in Hollywood to get their star on the walk of fame. The boys still look good (maybe God spent a little more time with them). Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick will be immortalized on April 30. Here We Go Now!

  • Something to devour when your kids say, "Who's that?"

  • • Have a family dance night! Get your baggy jeans on, practice your best sultry looks, give them a real taste of the 90's with some candy necklaces*, get the kids off the couch and dance!

  • • The family that dances together stays together.
