Most parents know that disciplining kids is no easy task. And it doesn't get any easier when your kids are adorable, too adorable to scold. In a new viral video, a father discovers his two sons covered in paint. Dad starts to reprimand the tikes in the usual manner saying, "Who's idea was this? Did you think this was a good idea?"
Then the wheels come off, and dad can't keep a straight face and breaks out in laughter. One of the boys appropriately asks, "What is funny?" Dad can't keep it together, especially after the boys ask if they have paint in their hair.
The video was uploaded to YouTube on Monday, where it has been viewed more than 3.5 million times so far! Hey dad, at least they are already in the shower for easy cleaning.

- Yahoo! Singapore | What’s buzzing? – Thu, Nov 20, 2014Been considering breast implants but not sure about it? Perhaps you want to trial out how you'd look with larger breasts for just a day?American plastic surgeon Dr Norman Rowe has developed a less invasive procedure that takes about half an hour and only lasts 24 hours - using salt water.He calls the express boob job “Insta-breast”.Dr Rowe injects sterile saline solution in to the breast from a point near the nipple until it reaches the right size. Speaking on Australia’s Sunrise programme, Dr Rowe said, “To put it in perspective, it's equivalent to a large bottle of water."The saline is just absorbed over the 24 hour period and is eventually urinated out of the body."There is a small risk for getting infection but I haven't seen that yet. I don't see too much of a downside... I find that most of the patients are very pleased and they get a feel of what implants would look and feel like," Dr Rowe said.Read More »from Plastic surgeon offers ‘Insta-breast’ express boob job service

Do you feel like a broken record sometimes?
Over and over, you ask your children to clear their room. Or do their homework. Or get dressed. Or stop playing computer games.
But they just don’t listen.
You’re confused and frustrated. You don’t know what other approach to try.
After speaking to and working with almost 15,000 students so far, I realise what the root cause of children not listening to their parents is.
Children often feel like their parents don’t listen to them in the first place.

Kirsten Han is a Singaporean blogger, journalist and filmmaker. She is also involved in the We Believe in Second Chances campaign for the abolishment of the death penalty. A social media junkie, she tweets at @kixes. The views expressed are her own.
Singapore, we are told, is a pro-family country. The government actively introduces policies that will encourage young Singaporeans to get married and have children, and nuclear families are often given benefits in the form of tax rebates and subsidies.
Yet there are sometimes stories that make you doubt that stance.
The New Paper ran an article on 17 November about a family now torn apart: upon returning to Singapore and applying for a Long-Term Visit Pass, married couple Mr Y. C. Chen and Ms Li Qiaoyan realised that Ms Li had been served an entry ban. Her offence was not seeking permission from the Ministry of Manpower before getting pregnant and married.

More than seven years ago, Mike Nuanes’ Shih Tzu puppy went missing.
The Denver, Colorado, man and his late wife returned from a family breakfast at a nearby house to discover their dog Jordan was no longer in their backyard.
He searched the neighbourhood, assuming he’d find the dog dead on the side of the road.
"When I didn’t find him smashed, I knew someone had either taken him or found him," Nuanes told 7News Denver. “I put up posters with reward; never got a word.”
Late last month, Nuanes received a surprise phone call from the Fulton Country Animal Shelter in Atlanta, Georgia: They had his dog.
At first, Nuanes was confused. He and his girlfriend did a quick head count of their dogs. Sure enough, all four of them were in the backyard. He didn’t know the woman from the shelter was referring to the dog who went missing almost eight years ago.
"When she asked, ‘Is his name Jordan?’ That’s when my jaw hit the ground," Nuanes told KUSA.
