COLEEN Rooney looked relaxed, tanned and happy as she enjoyed a day with her sons on the beach in Portugal.Wearing a flattering striped bikini, the 31-year-old wife of football ace Wayne was pictured strolling along the beach with their lads, and holding her youngest son’s hand, as they got ready to enjoy the water.Keeping Kai, seven, Klay, four, and 19-month-old Kit active, Coleen helped them put on life vests before taking a sailing trip on a “fire boat.”The hands-on mum then treated the kids to something a little more active and stood in the sea as she helping Klay onto a large inflatable waterslide, and grinned as they took a bounce together.While Coleen is clearly loving life with her three boys she recently admitted that she's not quite ready for another child yet - even if it is a girl.She told The Mail: "Growing up I had two brothers and then we adopted Rosie.

ROCK icon KEITH RICHARDS is one of the biggest caners in the history of music and continues to baffle medical science simply by being alive.But decades of excess somehow haven’t affected his memory — far from it.I can reveal the legendary ROLLING STONES guitarist has filmed a TV movie about growing up in Dartford, Kent, just after the war — and way before construction of the QE2 Bridge, which has probably raked in more from commuters than the Stones made from music.Acclaimed director JULIEN TEMPLE, the man behind the SEX PISTOLS’ God Save the Queen video, is steering the project, which will get top billing next month in the BBC’s My Generation season.Talking about the film, Keith Richards — The Origin of the Species, Julien said: “Hearing the Stones as a kid changed everything for me.“I felt a new way of living emerging, a new kind of person becoming possible — something I wanted to be a part of. And without a doubt I thought … [Read more...] about Rolling Stones legend Keith Richard films movie about growing up post-World War Two

IF “stop sucking your thumb” and “Don’t bit your nails” are frequent nags in your household, it’s time to hold fire.It turns out these two common habits are actually GOOD for kids.A new study has shown that thumb-sucking and nail-biting in childhood can protect against allergies in adulthood.Children who did either were significantly less likely to grow up with common allergies including house dust mites, grass, mould and fur.The two habits – which develop in the womb – boosts the immune sustem by exposing them to germs from an early age.The study, led by the University of Otago in New Zealand and published in Pediatrics, following the progress of 1,037 participants from birth through to adulthood.Parents reported their children's habits when their children were aged five, seven, nine and 11 and they were then tested for allergies at the ages of 13 and 32.Kids of 13 who had sucked their thumbs or bit their nails had a 38 per cent allergy … [Read more...] about Stop nagging the kids about sucking their thumbs and biting their nails … It’s actually good for them
"I should be in school. It's my right to be educated, to have an ID, a house, medical care," Mohamed says with stern conviction. Yet this eight-year-old, who comes from Halab in Syria, has the odds stacked up against him in fulfilling his dream of becoming a human rights lawyer and reproaching the Lebanese landowner for how he treats child workers. According to a growing number of NGOs, they are now "child slaves," as gone is the endearing euphemism of "forced labor." At least 80 percent of Syrian kids in the Bekaa Valley work in the fields for around four dollars a day, and because the rent on their tents is to be paid to the same landlord, they work in a relationship akin to modern-day slavery. Five years of the UN and the Lebanese government chaperoning a policy of making refugees here pay for everything - water, electricity, rent and now residency itself - has left a community tarnished and scarred by shame. And one look into this boy's eyes tells you that he knows it. When … [Read more...] about Child slavery primes Syrian kids to become sex workers when they grow up
The recent rise in right-wing extremism in eastern Germany is often blamed on its disillusioned younger generation. But researchers at the renowned Allensbach Opinion Research Institute have published a study which reaches very different conclusions. To Rita Barwitzki, a 26-year-old from Leipzig, the fall of the Berlin wall almost 15 years ago couldn't have come at a better time. "I had to shed part of my identity," she explained, "but I couldn't wait to discover new things." "I didn't want to get stuck in the old ways -- after all a new system had arrived that gave me more freedom and independence." Rita believes she benefited from having lived both behind the Iron Curtain and in reunited Germany. She has childhood memories of life under Honecker, but it was the West that shaped her life as a teenager. Her self-confidence is typical of the under-30s in eastern Germany, who are more enterprising than the older generation, and many of their contemporaries in the West.
