There are some moments in life you can never get back. Seeing the twist in "The Empire Strikes Back." Meeting your husband or wife for the first time. The first time you rode a roller coaster.

With the advent of social media, parents have been taking video of their children watching pivotal moments in pop culture to share their reactions. Irish comedian Paddy Raff filmed his two-year-old daughter, Clara's reaction where she saw Bruce Banner turn into the Hulk for the first time.


And we all know what happens when he becomes the Hulk, right? He smashes everything in sight.

The video was tweeted out on Wednesday, October 9, and it already has over 300,000 likes. According to Clara's dad, the movie was either 2012's "The Avengers" 2015's "Avengers: Age of Ultron."

He's unsure because his son was in charge of the remote control when the video was taken.

There are four elements that make this video adorable:

1. The way she wags her finger at the Hulk for being naughty and chastises him, "No!"

2. The Spider-man figure that's beside her as she watches the movie.

3. The way she moves between being enthralled by the movie but still has the presence of mind to keep eating.

4. Then there's the big look of pure shock.

The video is so cute that it even grabbed the attention of the man who plays Banner, Mark Ruffalo.

The Avengers are a big thing in this family. Clara loves playing with her brother's figures and feeds them breakfast when he goes to school.

Between the new normal that is working from home and e-learning for students of all ages, having functional electronic devices is extremely important. But that doesn't mean needing to run out and buy the latest and greatest model. In fact, this cycle of constantly upgrading our devices to keep up with the newest technology is an incredibly dangerous habit.

The amount of e-waste we produce each year is growing at an increasing rate, and the improper treatment and disposal of this waste is harmful to both human health and the planet.

So what's the solution? While no one expects you to stop purchasing new phones, laptops, and other devices, what you can do is consider where you're purchasing them from and how often in order to help improve the planet for future generations.

Artist Tom Ward has used his incredible illustration techniques to give us some new perspective on modern life through popular Disney characters. "Disney characters are so iconic that I thought transporting them to our modern world could help us see it through new eyes," he told The Metro.

Tom says he wanted to bring to life "the times we live in and communicate topical issues in a relatable way."

In Ward's "Alt Disney" series, Prince Charming and Pinocchio have fallen victim to smart phone addiction. Ariel is living in a polluted ocean, and Simba and Baloo have been abused by humans.

With many schools going virtual, many daycare facilities being closed or limited, and millions of parents working from home during the pandemic, the balance working moms have always struggled to achieve has become even more challenging in 2020. Though there are more women in the workforce than ever, women still take on the lion's share of household and childcare duties. Moms also tend to bear the mental load of keeping track of all the little details that keep family life running smoothly, from noticing when kids are outgrowing their clothing to keeping track of doctor and dentist appointments to organizing kids' extracurricular activities.

It's a lot. And it's a lot more now that we're also dealing with the daily existential dread of a global pandemic, social unrest, political upheaval, and increasingly intense natural disasters.

That's why scientist Gretchen Goldman's refreshingly honest photo showing where and how she conducted a CNN interview is resonating with so many.

Schools often have to walk a fine line when it comes to parental complaints. Diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and preferences for what kids see and hear will always mean that schools can't please everyone all the time, so educators have to discern what's best for the whole, broad spectrum of kids in their care.

Sometimes, what's best is hard to discern. Sometimes it's absolutely not.

Such was the case this week when a parent at a St. Louis elementary school complained in a Facebook group about a book that was read to her 7-year-old. The parent wrote:

"Anyone else check out the read a loud book on Canvas for 2nd grade today? Ron's Big Mission was the book that was read out loud to my 7 year old. I caught this after she watched it bc I was working with my 3rd grader. I have called my daughters school. Parents, we have to preview what we are letting the kids see on there."
