There's never a shortage of news in the parenting world — from differing parenting styles to new studies and beyond. But there are only so many hours in the day, and we can't cover every story that catches our eyes. Take a look at the seven stories you may have missed this week but need to read.
- Teens take on a lot of crazy social media dares, from downing a spoonful of cinnamon to diving into freezing waters. But this may be the most dangerous one yet. A number of teens have participated in the fire challenge , where they film themselves setting various parts of their body on fire. We just have one question for these kids — why?
- We know how important it is to keep our kids healthy, but how many of us actually know what that word means? A recent study found that 31 percent of parents of obese or overweight children think their kids are in excellent health . Perhaps it's time we pay more attention to what Michelle Obama has to say.
- Meet your modern-day Lassie! A dog in Michigan located a baby  that had been left on the side of the road. Minus a few bumps and bruises, the child is doing well and now has a new best buddy.
- We know one girl who won't be pursuing an art career any time soon. After being caught doodling on her desk, one first-grader was forced to sit on the floor  for several weeks. The worst part — she kept it a secret from her parents because she didn't want to be punished even more.
- Having a daughter makes most men a little overprotective. Just like one Philadelphia father. After noticing a male customer checking out his daughter, the dad proceeded to punch him in the face .
- We've seen plenty of cool playgrounds, but this one takes the cake! Designer and architect David
Rockwellhas launched a line of playground sets  that allow children to build their own area of adventure and fun.
- One boy in Oregon has a huge mark on his driving record — and he's not even in kindergarten! While his babysitter was in the bathroom, the 3-year-old drove a Jeep into a nearby house . Not knowing he had to leave his insurance information, the tot ran home to watch cartoons.
