DAN SEABORN: Parents are allowed to make mistakes -- Showing love and affection never gets old when it comes to your children. They may resist it as they grow up, but I believe deep down inside children still appreciate a hug and comforting words regardless of age. Don’t be fooled by their tough exterior because inside they’ll always desire the love of their parents. Holland Sentinel (Mich.)
DAN SEABORN: 'Think' before you speak -- Let me explain. The first letter of the word “think” is t. The idea is that you should ask yourself whether what you are about to say is true? If there is any bit of falseness to it, then don’t talk about it. Holland Sentinel (Mich.)

ALIX KUNKLE: So Furbys are making a comeback ... - Furbys are making a comeback. And when they finally arrive, I'm expecting them to come in one big pack, marching down the highway and telling us, "we're back," in their twisted Furby language. By Alix Kunkle, Leesville, La.
ALIX KUNKLE: I stay old school for a reason - Ever since I wrote my column claiming that I was probably the only person without a smartphone, I've had quite a few people try to convince me that I need to get an iPhone or a BlackBerry. By Alix Kunkle, Leesville, La.
FRANK MULLIGAN: Facebook through the ages -- I’ve been told by well-meaning people I have a misanthropic aversion to social media. I can’t stand those people. That’s because they’re so mistaken. In short, if loving Facebook’s wrong, I don’t want to be right. Wicked Local Wareham (Mass.)

JIM HILLIBISH: Are you hungry? Ask for ‘Noah’s Boy’ -- Every corner diner worth its grease had a big pot of ham and bean soup simmering on a back burner ready for workers on a 20-minute lunch. Cookie called it “Noah’s Boy” (for his son, Ham). Jim Hillibish/ Canton (Ohio) Repository

STAY TUNED: 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' is not the worst thing on TV - I don't hate the new reality series “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” but I should. Everything about this show screams, “You are wasting 30 minutes of your life by viewing this!” After struggling through a mini-marathon of five episodes, I've decided it's not the worst show on television. But it's close. By Melissa Crawley, GHNS.

EDITORIAL: Romney and the Libya tragedy - The death of America's ambassador to Libya and three other embassy employees by an angry Muslim mob on the anniversary of 9/11 no doubt has many frustrated citizens of this country thinking that's no way to repay us for helping to free them from a brutal dictator. They should not rush to judgment. The Republican nominee for president would be wise to heed that caution, as well. By Peoria, Ill.
EDITORIAL: Freedom of speech in the Middle East - Tuesday’s tragic killing of the American ambassador to Libya and violent protests in Egypt, possibly over an offensive video made in California that ridiculed the Muslim prophet Muhammad, is a reminder that deep cultural differences between the United States and some in the Muslim world remain, even as nations move toward democracy. By Springfield, Ill.
JERRY MOORE: Violence Against Women Act must protect all victims -- The Violence Against Women Act expired last year, and supporters hoped it would be reapproved as it has been in years past. But most House Republicans this spring couldn’t get past their blind allegiance to an ideology that declares you can’t support anyone in the LGBT community. Suburban Life Publications (Ill.)
