News Roundup: Celebrity Sperm, Sleep Rules, and Single Moms

By at 12:48 pm

All the parenting news you probably didn’t have time to read this week.

- Looking for a sperm donor, and hoping for something A-list? A new clinic in England called Fame Daddy will sell you some very expensive A-list swimmers. The catch is that you won’t know exactly which celeb donated the sperm, and your future child can’t find out until he or she is 18 (and isn’t entitled to any money). [Update: It's most likely a hoax.] (Jezebel)

– New research says that school-age kids need 10-11 hours of sleep a night. A nice idea, but how do you make that happen? (Motherlode)

– Siblings fight. It’s inevitable. But when should you step in, and when should you just let them work it out themselves? Dr. Peggy Drexler has some tips. (Huffington Post)

– In last week’s Presidential debate, Gov. Mitt Romney answered a question about assault weapons with a mini-lecture on the importance of two-parent families. Are single moms to blame for gun violence? Um, no. (Slate)
