Prince William opens up about the 'struggles' of parenting

He’s not mincing words.

In a very candid interview, Prince William revealed that even he has “struggled at times” as a parent.

The 34-year-old royal and father to Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 1, was very honest in an interview for the “Talk Vietnam” show on VTV-TV in Hanoi on Thursday.

“Well, as the other parents in the room will testify, there’s wonderful highs, and there’s wonderful lows. It’s been quite a change for me, personally. I’m very lucky in the support I have from Catherine,” William said about wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. “She is an amazing mother and a fantastic wife.”

“But I’ve struggled at times; the alteration from being a single, independent man to going into marriage and then having children is life-changing,” he added. “I adore my children very much, and I’ve learned a lot about myself and about a family just from having my own children, and it’s amazing how much you pick up from just in those moments.”

Grandma Valerie Sharp told "Today" that she often uses a step stool to put her grandchildren, Reed, 2, and Lola, 11 months, to bed.

But last Friday, as Sharp was laying little Lola down for her nap, she got a little top-heavy. A video shared by her kids shows Sharp leaning forward to lay Lola down, then suddenly toppling head-first into the crib.

Thankfully, she didn’t land on Lola.

“I was so thankful that, the way that I had her in my arms, my body didn’t touch her or hit her in any way as I went down. The worst that happened was that I jolted the mattress, and with that, she woke up,” Sharp said.

Her daughter, Nikki Bishop, shared the video on Facebook, where it quickly got more than 54 million views.

Sharp is glad she was able to make so many people smile.

“I did feel bad it happened, and I am glad we are both OK. But I think people need a good laugh right now,” Sharp said.

Mom thanks firefighters who sang to daughter with autism after horrific crash

It was an ordinary day for Summer Ginn and her daughter Raelyn, 2.

The day started with a moment all of us know too well: Summer was running late on taking her daughter to school at 8:20 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25.

While driving on Highway 211 heading toward the Challenged Child and Friends school, Summer lost control of her car, ran off the road, over-corrected and crossed two lanes of traffic before hitting a huge tree while going about 60 mph.

"They told me I hit four trees and a mailbox, but my memory gets hazy right before I ran off the road," Summer said.

​"Hall County Fire Services didn’t have to sing to her in the back of that ambulance," the girl's mother said. "If they hadn’t, she would have been just fine, but I wouldn’t have been."Posted by WSB-TV on Wednesday, November 16, 2016

Summer tells WSB-TV's Kimberly Richardson that all she cared about was her little girl, who was sitting in the back seat.

"I heard her crying, so I knew she was alive, but that’s all I knew," Summer said.

Raelyn has autism, which made Summer worry about the moments that were ahead, because Raelyn wouldn't be able to tell or show the first responders where she was hurting.

The next thing Summer says she remembers are paramedics arriving on the scene and sliding her out of her car and onto a backboard.

Summer explains that she had a deep gash, about 2.5 inches long, across the back of her head, and blood seemed to just be pouring out of it.

Posted by Summer Ginn on Friday, October 28, 2016

But Summer says none of that mattered. The only thing that mattered was that Raelyn was OK.

Knowing that Raelyn was terrified and that there was nothing Summer could do, she asked the Hall County firefighter holding her daughter if he could sing "Wheels on the Bus" to her.

Without hesitation, firefighters Caleb Rumbaugh and Brian Gregory did just that.  

"There were angels looking over us that day that made sure we were OK, but he was our angel in the flesh who was sent to my car accident for a reason," Summer said.

The first responders on the scene had asked Summer if it was OK to give Raelyn some pain killers to help with any pain she may have. Summer responded of course, knowing the thought of her daughter in pain was unimaginable.

"I assumed they had given her some medicine, because on the drive to the hospital she was so calm," Summer said.

But Raelyn wasn't given any medicine; it was Rumbaugh and Gregory who were making all the difference.

Summer says that she knows they didn’t have to intubate her to maintain an airway, but said they were the reason she was able to keep breathing.

"Knowing my child was safe and not in pain allowed me to take another breath," Summer said.

After the crash, Rumbaugh's wife reached out to Summer and wanted to let her know that the car accident wasn't just another day for him.

Cory Rumbaugh wrote to Summer that Rumbaugh "rarely talks about his calls at home and that when he does share his calls with me, I intently listen because I know they affected him somehow."

"He came home the following morning, after working another 48-hour shift, and the first thing he said to me was 'I got to sing to a little girl,'" Cory wrote to Summer.

Summer tells Richardson that she knows the firefighters did so much more that day than they were trained to do.

"Thank you for giving me those brief moments of hope while she was content and quiet," Summer said. "By keeping her calm, you kept me sane (relatively). You made the most traumatic experience of my life sting a little bit less. Our car wreck was just another day on the job for you, but you left a lasting impression on me and I will never forget what you did for us that day."

Warrant issued for mother who left 4 children home alone

A mother is facing charges for leaving her children home alone then telling officers to "just take them." A warrant has been issued for Takoya Parker, 35.

>> Read more trending stories  

According to the criminal complaint, police were sent to her apartment Saturday for a welfare check on her four children. It was the second time in two weeks that officers were called to the apartment for a report of children left alone, authorities said.

Nobody answered the door, when officers arrived Saturday, but they could hear young children talking to each other inside, the complaint said. A maintenance man let officers into the apartment where they found the children, ages 10, 6, 5 and 3.

The criminal complaint stated that the apartment appeared to be in disarray; there were no working lights other than in the kitchen and no beds. A large kitchen knife was on the counter, and a screw driver was on the floor, the complaint stated.

The children told officers they had not eaten recently, according to the complaint.

Officers were able to get a phone number for the children’s mother from Allegheny County Children Youth and Families.

According to the criminal complaint, when they contacted Parker, she told them she was at work and could not leave to come home. She told the officer "just take them," in reference to her children.

Parker did give police permission to allow the children to go with a neighbor, who watched them until a CYF worker arrived.

There's a warrant for Parker's arrest on charges of endangering the welfare of children. As of 11 a.m. Monday, she was not in custody.

Watchdog group announces dangerous toy list for 2016

Before parents head to the stores with their children's Christmas lists, they will want to see which toys safety watchdogs advise avoiding  this year.

World Against Toys Causing Harm Inc., or W.A.T.C.H., announced its list of the 10 worst toys of 2016.

Justin Ross Harris found guilty of murder in son's hot car death

A Georgia man has been found guilty of murder in his son’s hot car death.

After several days of deliberations, jurors convicted Ross Harris on all counts, including malice murder, two counts of felony murder and several others.

>> Read more trending stories  

Harris' 22-month-old son, Cooper, died June 18, 2014, when Harris left him inside his SUV outside his office for nearly seven hours.

Prosecutors argued that Harris' actions were intentional. They said Harris was living a double life and wanted to escape his family life to be "the other Justin Ross Harris." During trial, they brought in multiple women who were sexting with Harris on the day of Cooper's death, including a minor and a woman Harris claimed to love. Prosecutors said Harris wanted to live that life full time, but wouldn't leave his wife as long as his son was alive.

The defense said despite Harris' moral failures, he loved his son and would never intentionally hurt him. They argued that it was just a tragic, horrible accident and that Harris was devastated by Cooper's death.

Detectives testified during the trial that they became suspicious because of Harris' statements and actions during his interview with police. Harris was arrested at the scene and charged with murder that same day. In the interview room, Harris argued with detectives, telling them he didn't understand why he was being charged because "there was no malicious intent."

Harris' trial was originally scheduled to begin in May in Cobb County, Georgia, but after weeks of jury selection, the defense argued that they would not be able to find an unbiased jury and requested a change of venue.

The judge granted that request and the trial was moved to Brunswick, Georgia, in Glynn County.

Jury selection began again in September and a jury was seated in less than two weeks. The trial began Oct. 3.

After 22 days of testimony and 70 witnesses, 52 for the state and 18 for the defense, the jury began its deliberations.

Sentencing will likely take place in Cobb County at a later time.

The photos were captured by Heidi Spillane, who owns My Three Arrows photography. Amber was a close friend, and when she was diagnosed with cancer, they came up with the idea together, according to ABC News.

“Photographing this session without you was never in the plan, but we felt you there, smiling and so proud of your sweet girl,” wrote Spillane on Facebook.

Nora learned a lot about her late mother during the photo shoot.

“I thought it was going to be emotional, but it was just a happy time,” said Amber’s sister, Adrianne Blackwelder. “We talked about Amber … the day of their wedding.”

Baby has amazing hair

A three-month-old little girl in Louisiana is making the internet go wild all over her hair.

Areea Sue Oiba John was born with a full head of hair, and it's not going to be cut for a few more weeks.

Her father is a member of the Coushatta Indian tribe, and despite being ready for a cut now, she will have to wait until a blessing ceremony later this month, The American Press reported.

The tribe shaves the heads of babies when they reach four months old.

'I know I'm going to cry. I always do. But it is a tradition for the baby, so it will be worth it," Alisha John said.

During the ceremony, the baby is placed on objects from his or her family that represent skills that the child will excel at. As the hair is shaved, prayers are said over the child.

She will be held over a dictionary, Bible, a Koasati dictionary for her native language and a softball glove, The Press reported.

Areea's mother said her three older kids were also born with a lot of hair but not as much as their little sister.

Alisha took advantage of Areea's hair this Halloween for her perfect costume. 

Areea's hair was the star of her outfit based on the movie "Trolls."

"There were almost no costumes in her size, so I just decided to make one for her myself and we decided to dress her up as a troll," Alisha said.
