'Always listen closely to mothers," wise pediatricians tell their less-experienced colleagues. I didn't follow that dictum recently when my patient's mother came into our office with a concern that her 1-year-old daughter's head was leaning more to the left side. I quickly reviewed her chart, finding no significant past medical history. The mother first noticed her daughter's head tilting to the left when she started walking about a month ago. It didn't occur all the time, the mother said, but just over the previous week, it had become worse.

The juggling act known as the Working Mom is hard enough for most of us. When you have a curious, energetic toddler, it's a challenge. When you have to wake up at 3:30 a.m. for work — an hour when you should be enjoying REM sleep — it starts to get a bit crazy. And when that job is cohost of Fox29's Good Day Philadelphia, a job under klieg lights that demands smart lifestyle reports, and perkiness, witty banter, and perkiness, and every strand of hair just so (did we mention perkiness?

The remorseful father told police he beat and shook his 3-year-old son to death on Oct. 11 to teach him a lesson.

A convicted murderer admitted Monday that he had sexually assaulted a 2-year-old boy in Camden in August 2012, a month before he sexually assaulted a 12-year-old girl and killed her 6-year-old brother. Osvaldo Rivera, 34, formerly of Camden, pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault in Superior Court for the attack on the 2-year-old. He faces a 15-year prison sentence under his plea deal, the Camden County Prosecutor's Office said in a news release. While looking into the September 2012 murder of the 6-year-old and assault on the 12-year-old, investigators used a cheek swab to run Rivera's DNA through the New Jersey State Police DNA database.
