Parents should be cautious about that to which their kids are exposed, especially in an environment where parental supervision isn't present. At home, television channels can be blocked, web content can be monitored, and most parents are hopefully keeping track of what their kids are reading.

My sister and I were hanging out one weekend watching the Food Network, eating cookie dough and trying to stay cool; Texas summers are brutal. We ended up watching a food truck special that highlighted some of the best food trucks from cities all over the country. Oh My!
