Nine mass shootings in seven states this weekend left fifteen Americans dead and dozens more injured. According to CNN, a violent incident is considered a mass shooting when “four or more people [are] killed or wounded by gunfire – excluding the shooter.”

One of the deadliest tragedies occurred in Colorado Springs, when a man killed six people at a birthday party. Officials believe that one of the victims was the shooter’s partner. The suspect is dead, too, officers say.

“Words fall short to describe the tragedy that took place this morning,” said the Colorado Spring police chief. “From the officers who responded to the shooting to the investigators still on [the] scene, we are all left incredibly shaken.”

The first official tropical system of the season has officially formed, and it broke a record in the process. 

Tropical Storm Andres formed off the coast of Mexico on Sunday in the Pacific ocean. The development of Andres is over three weeks prior to the official start of the 2021 hurricane season, making the tropical storm the earliest ever to form in the eastern Pacific. 

Adrian was the last storm to hold the title of the earliest eastern Pacific storm, as that tropical system took the title back in 2017. But the hurricane season gets more active earlier and earlier each year – a trend weather experts have picked up on over the last several years. 

Is Andres a threat to land? And why is the hurricane season more and more active earlier each year?

Should these ten ‘old school’ parenting techniques be brought back?

Parenting is vastly different than it was 30 plus years ago. Parenting philosophies have come a long way in that time. Raising children is entirely different than it used to be. That doesn’t mean we can’t take some of our parents’ expertise and put it into practice. Some of our parenting advice could be just what this generation needs. Here are ten things our parents did that parents today should bring back.

Our children will end up fine. They don’t need to be handed everything on a silver platter. They don’t need to be the best at everything, or even at one thing. It’s okay if they fall and get hurt or get heartbroken. It’s how they learn and grow. And it will teach them compassion and kindness, and love.
