How do you keep your kids from doing things you don't want them to do? Barack and Michelle Obama try reverse psychology. The president told an interviewer on the Today show that's the approach he and Michelle are taking when it comes to tattoos. “What we've said to the girls is, 'If you guys ever decided you're going to get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo in the same place. And we'll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo,'” President Obama said.

Rebecca Butchock's bed is feeling very empty this week, and her 2-year-old son, Liam, worries that everyone he loves who gets out of his sight may never come back. Their beloved dog, Ruby, got away from a friend during a walk earlier this week and they've mobilized a solid team of friends -- those they know in real life and some they only know on social media -- to find her. It's been a tragic month for the mother and son. “On the fourth of July,” says Butchock, “my boyfriend and Liam's father died very suddenly of a heart attack.” On the 12th, a friend offered to take Ruby for a hike at a farm in Glyndon to give Rebecca a bit of a break, but something spooked the terrier mix and she bolted, yanking her leash out of the friend's hand and vanishing into the woods.

Lanny Ross struggled to push his 78-year-old mother through the surf toward shore. On a cool, cloudy October afternoon, his two-seater plane had smacked into the Chesapeake Bay, stranding them both amid five-foot waves. His mother's right eye was swollen shut, her teeth had pierced her bottom lip, and her nose was broken. Miles from land, the sun was setting and they were shivering, when his mother spoke. Hold my hand, she told him. What's wrong? he asked her. Hold my hand, she said again.

If it was a Saturday morning and the weather was nice, you could find Katie and Wil Brady on their bikes, exploring trails around the Baltimore region. That was until 2008, when the Perry Hall mother and her 8-year-old son were killed in a car crash on their way to a Scout camping event. Brady's husband and her younger son, Ian, survived the head-on collision on the Bel Air Bypass in Harford County. Five years later, funds donated in their honor will help extend a hiking and biking trail at the Marshy Point Nature Center in Middle River, letting visitors enjoy more of the site on the Chesapeake Bay. "We wanted to find something that everyone could use and enjoy, because that was how Katie and Wil were," said Katie Brady's sister, Kelly Lane.

Dear Mr. Azrael, I have a friend who is a senior citizen and she has her son on the deed of her home as a joint tenant. She lives in the house, pays the mortgage, the taxes, the insurance, the repairs, etc., and he contributes absolutely nothing toward the property. He denies her access to buildings on the property, and he has destroyed and vandalized the property. He wanted his mother to sell the house, but she refused; he has filed in court to force a sale of the house. She put $67,000 down on the property and has made all the payments.

For acclaimed mystery novelist Martha Grimes, the witches' caldron that nearly proved her undoing didn't contain the usual eye of newt and toe of frog. Instead, it held 10 parts gin or sometimes vodka, a splash of vermouth, lemon peel, olive and onion. Grimes was an alcoholic so high-functioning that the people who knew her best never suspected that dry martinis were her intoxicant of choice. Since 1981, the writer, now 82, has published at least one book each year, including 22 of the best-selling Richard Jury mysteries.

Upset that his mother would not pay off his debt to drug dealers, Genesis Collins Jr. set himself on fire and embraced her, leaving Audrey Collins with burns that ultimately killed her, prosecutors said. On Wednesday, a Baltimore jury convicted Collins, 42, of manslaughter and other charges in connection with the attack. He faces as much as 40 years in prison when he is sentenced in March. Jeremy Reed, Genesis Collins' nephew and Audrey Collins' grandson, said the family felt some relief that he had been convicted but that there was no real feeling of closure.

Nothing seemed outwardly amiss Monday at the Columbia home where a mother and son were found dead by relatives Friday night in a tragedy that Howard County police suspect may have been the result of a suicide. A pleasant man in a blue tank top who seemed to be cleaning answered the door at the house with white siding and gray shutters. He politely refused to discuss the events of Friday night, when relatives called police to a disturbing scene inside — the bodies of 46-year-old Tracy Denise Hawks and her 18-year-old autistic son, Christopher Melton, on a bed in the master bedroom.

Debbie Phelps has cast off the mantle of "America's Mother" for something a little more Sir Thomas More. Henceforth, the world's most famous swimming mom is to be known as "A Mother for All Seasons." That's the title of her memoir, which hit bookstores last week. Why not invoke the saint who stood up to Henry VIII in a tale about a single mom who raised an Olympic phenom? Only Phelps doesn't lose her head, even in the part - page 272 of the 274-page book - about Michael Phelps' bong picture.
