It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means: time for another edition of Weird Parenting News! This week we’ve got stubborn teens, sleepy Santas, and more! Check out these weird headlines from the week in parenting! 

No studs allowed. A 14-year-old girl in East Yorkshire, England, has been banned from school until she removes her nose ring.  Each day she’s sent home is equal to two unexcused absences — and when she reaches 20, her parents could be fined up to $1,500! The small stud violates the dress code, but she won’t remove it, despite the potential hardship for her struggling parents. Like, no one gets her, okay? Check out the full story.

Insta-baby name. Are you pregnant and an Instagram junkie? Why not follow the latest trend of naming your baby after an Instagram filter? According to BabyCenter, Instagram filters are increasingly popping up on baby name lists, including Lux, Ludwig, Valencia, Willow, and more. Hey, for you Facebook fans, why not start your own trend? Comment, Like, and Share sound like good baby names to me! Read all about it.

He knows when you are sleepy… I can’t get enough of this photo of a 6-month-old who couldn’t stay awake long enough to meet Santa, so Santa posed napping with the little guy. Hey, those long Santa lines make me sleepy too, kid. See the photo.
