Since it’s release almost a year ago, there have been about million covers of the anthemic ballad “Let it Go” from Disney’s wildly popular animated film Frozen.
Actually, probably more like a million and a half. With each new incarnation of the empowering song, originally sung by cast member and Broadway icon Idina Menzel, is a fresh attempt to out-cute the one before it. And they all melt away in comparison to this little girl’s perfect rendition. Take a look!
Did you know that children as young as 14 can apply for their working permits in the U.S.?
Any child worker under the recommended age is considered illegal and goes against the U.S.’s strict child labor laws. Despite these regulations, it might surprise you to learn that over 200 million children around the world, under the age of 10, are still being put to work in 2016. Of that number, more than half of these children are slaving away in hazardous work environments such as factory jobs or other places where they are forced to operate advanced machinery.
While child labor in the U.S. has become an almost silent issue, during the height of the Industrial revolution, putting your son or daughter to work was the only option for staying afloat during tough economic times. Children as young as three put in long days for very little pay. And while schooling was an option for many of these kids, their parents were living below the poverty line and needed them to work to help set off living expenses. These 24 heartbreaking examples of child labor from the early 20th century showcase the struggle of children who were forced to grow up too fast.
1. Most child workers put in 10 hours days, six days a week, and would bring home just $1.50 a day.
2. When children turned three, they were considered old enough to work in the fields and pick fruit.
3. Most supervisors didn’t care if you were a boy or girl, the work still needed to get done, whether or not you were fit to complete the task.
If you are a fan of searching the internet for cool DIY ideas, then chances are you’ve seen some pretty amazing things that parents have made for their little ones.
But Redditor Missilluzion and her husband really outdid themselves when they spent a year building an adorable playhouse for their three-year-old son. If your kids love castles, you’ll definitely want to check this out.
They used two-by-fours to build the castle’s frame.
Sibling rivalry is very serious business — and no one is taking it more seriously than this little girl.Â Unfortunately, her hilariously elaborate plansÂ were foiled when her parents discovered the unusual to-do list in her notebook. I would probably be disturbedÂ if I wasn’t laughing so much.
Kids often dream of the day when they grow up and become adults so that they can do whatever they want. But while most dream of never going to school again or eating ice cream for every meal, two-year-old Olivia can’t wait for the day she doesn’t have to answer to her mom anymore…so that she can play in a dumpster.
Yes, you read that right!
The precocious toddler was taking a walk with her mom when they passed by a dumpster parked in someone’s driveway. Declaring how much she wanted to play in the nasty-looking trash, her mom explained that “people don’t go in dumpsters, only garbage goes in dumpsters.”
Sound logic, you’d think. Olivia didn’t agree, though, and started throwing this funny temper tantrum.
Kids really do say the darndest things. I remember when my brother threw a tantrum because he wanted to go to jail. I’m going to give Olivia the benefit of doubt, though. Maybe she knew there were Pokémon in there that needed catching!
This adorable video of two-year-old John David joyfully repeating each letter of the alphabet has taken the Internet by storm. His sweet take on the ABCs has been viewed over 15 million times on Facebook since his grandma posted it!
What makes the video so special is John’s hilarious reaction when he gets to one particularly funny letter, at which point he pauses for a few seconds in complete wonderment.
It may not be your birthday today, but these adorable cards from children will give you cause for celebration. There’s something about the innocence and sincerity behind them that makes the cards so sweet and funny.
Granted, most of what these kids wrote seems downright insane on the surface…but you know they had good intentions.
Adorably hilarious. I always thought my parents were trying to be nice when they said that a homemade card was better than ones I could buy in a store. Now I can see that they were 100% right. I would put these on the fridge in an instant.
When a little girl noticed a rainbow outside her window, she just HAD to call her grandma. She thought it ended at her nana’s house, so she made sure she was aware of the “treasure at the end of the rainbow” situation.
Even though grandma didn’t find any gold, she definitely has a little treasure in her caring granddaughter. Watch the adorable phone call here below, it’s guaranteed to make your day!
Children have a talent for being brutally honest, even when it hurts. They’re even honest on Mother’s Day… which can have absolutely hilarious results. Sure, all of these kids told their moms that they loved them… But they also told their moms what they didn’t love about them. These kids have guts!
1.) That’s almost a compliment…
2.) She loves you. Not your meatloaf.
3.) Ouch, that hurts, kid!
4.) Just let them have a dessert for being so sweet!
5.) You’re like a video game, mom. And that’s awesome.
6.) Hey, mom. I love you more than snakes.
7.) Sharing Netflix is serious bonding time.
8.) That was a painful day, thanks honey!
9.) This kid is just awesome.
10.) The honesty is appreciated, kid.
11.) I think they want a sibling. Maybe?
12.) That’s rough!
13.) This… this is just way too cute.

Each of us have unique gifts, but the special talent 15 year-old Amelia Forman has is so incredible, it’s almost unbelievable. Since she was a toddler, she has had a very special connection with animals in the world around her. Dogs, cats, birds, horses, deer, kangaroos and monkeys have all been her close companions. The connections are so incredible, her photographer mother Robin Schwartz even published a collection of photos of her daughter and her animals, called Tiny Vices: Amelia’s World. Now that Amelia is getting older, she is contributing more to the photo shoots and ideas of what she and her mother can do with the animals… giving us a peek into an amazing life.
For the past 12 years, Amelia has had a very special and intimate connection with animals.
Source: Robin Schwartz via My Modern Met Amelia and her mother are attempting to create a new collection of images, focusing on her rapport with the animals. If you’d like to support their project, visit their Kickstarter page. Being able to get more glimpses of their life would be a treasure. The second book will be called Amelia And The Animals and it’s bound to be just as good as the first. What a wonderful world Amelia lives in; share these photos with others by clicking on the Share button.
