Am I Raising a Liar?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The actress Lauren Holly recently wrote a blog for People Magazine in which she wrote about her concern that her son was lying. It's a common question most parents face at one point or another, so here's some information that may be helpful. Lying starts young and is a temptation throughout childhood and beyond. Whether it's to avoid blame and punishment, save face or gain advantage, it is inherent in being human. It seems that as soon as children can talk, they find ways to stretch the truth.

Jeff Daniels Tweets Photo With Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber To
US Magazine - over 3 years
This just in: Jeff Daniels has already traded in his suit and tie for a trusty hoodie and T-shirt getup. The actor took home the Best Actor in a Drama Emmy for his lead role on HBO's The Newsroom on Sunday, Sept. 22, but on Tuesday, Daniels returned to his comedic roots, posting a goofy snapshot of himself and Jim Carrey in full Dumb and Dumber character. "We're back!" the 58-year-old actor captioned the photo, in which he reprises his role as air-headed Harry Dunne to Carrey's charismatic Lloyd Christmas. In the funny snapshot, Daniels' hair is mussed up and he holds a silly grin on his face. Carrey, 51, rocks his familiar bowl-cut hairdo and chipped front tooth. PHOTOS: Best and worst movie remakes In the 1994 original, the dynamic duo played a pair of besties who got into (mis)adventures trying to return a briefcase full of cash to Lloyd's crush, Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly). Their shenanigans include a run-in with some dead parakeets and owls, explosive diarrhea, and one v ...
