Anne Arundel County police said a "suspicious" man stopped his vehicle in front of an Odenton home Wednesday evening and called the 6-year-old girl who was outside to come over to speak with him, police said. A man told police shortly before 9 p.m. that his daughter said that while she was in front of their home in the 1200 block of Odenton Road, a white, four-door vehicle with tinted windows stopped and a man got out and stood in the street, then returned to his vehicle and left, police said.

Anthony Maurice Cottle, 23, faces two counts of producing child pornography and one count of possessing it. Police announced in October that Cottle, who is from Owings Mills, had been arrested and he also faces state sex offense charges. Police said at the time they think he abused two 14-year old boys this summer while he was living with one of their families in Halethorpe.

Talking about childhood sexual abuse is uncomfortable, but that doesn't stop Shari Hammond from speaking up about this crime, which strikes one in four girls and one in six boys in this country before the age of 18, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She knows what can happen if she doesn't say anything -- because it happened to her, twice. Hammond was sexually abused as a young girl for several years but didn't report it until she was a teenager.

Sexually perverted adults are found in all walks of life, not merely college football programs. That the recent Penn State tragedy occurred around a sport with a reputation for machismo and tough men is a coincidence. This sort of criminal behavior has taken place in religious institutions, service organizations like the Boy Scouts, community recreation programs, public schools, and even in families. It has been suggested in the press that those who were aware of this behavior and did not stop it immediately or report it to the police used poor judgment.

I have a 7-year-old grandson with ADHD. He is very hyperactive and on medicine for it. Your column about how families can disagree over punishing a child with ADHD made me cry. I don't want to make my grandson miserable, but I do have to admit we have had many arguments about him. Can you say more about how to discipline a child with ADHD?The basic principles of discipline for children with ADHD -- attention deficit hyperactivity disorder -- are the same as for other children. They need lots of love; adults they can depend upon who are consistent in their expectations and rules; praise for the things they do right even if those are small; and short, reasonable punishment -- like timeout -- for important mistakes.

Editor's Note: Jerdine Nolen continues her series on Multiple Intelligences with a discussion of Interpersonal Intelligence. Humans need to connect and bond with one another. Being part of a team or a group and working alongside others can yield wonderful experiences for many of us. A child who adapts well to such circumstances may fall under a type of learning Howard Gardner (renowned for his theory of Multiple Intelligences) calls "Interpersonal Intelligence" -- the ability to perceive and make distinctions in the moods, intentions, motivations and feelings of other people.
