A young teenager was told she had to change her outfit because it would “distract” boys at her school.

However, when her father sent her back to school with a new outfit, this was also deemed “inappropriate”.

Demetra Alarcon, 13, was told by a teacher at Fisher Middle School in Los Gatos, California that the playsuit she was wearing was too short and would be “distracting” to boys on August 28.

Dad Tony picked up a new outfit for his daughter, which consisted of denim shorts and a tank top as the weather was very hot.

Unfortunately, Demetra found herself being dress-coded once more as teachers deemed her second outfit to be “inappropriate” also.

School officials said the teen’s shorts were shorter than the four-inch inseam that the dress code required.

Demetra’s dad Tony said: “I was told the shorts weren't appropriate.I had to go back into the car, where I luckily had a pair of leggings as a backup.”

He told CBS News that the school’s dress code isn’t compliant with the hot weather and girls at the school are being targeted unfairly.

He explained: “I mean, today it’s 90 degrees outside and she’s wearing leggings because she doesn’t want to be dress-coded for wearing shorts.

“And it’s not OK. It needs to change.

He added:”We have to have dress codes that are fair and reasonable, and don’t cause them emotional issues – cause them to question their bodies or feel like they’re sex symbols at 13 years old. Because they’re not. They’re just kids”.

He added that it was harder to find longer shorts for a girl of Demetra’s age and that most of the dress code rules applied to clothing girls wear such as halter tops or spaghetti straps.

He and his wife rely on their own method of checking whether their children’s clothing is appropriate, saying: “That's that they cover their 'front and rear' in any position—sitting or touching toes.

Demetra said that male pupils at her school are a lot less likely to be pulled up on dress code infractions than the girls are.

Diana G Abbati, Los Gatos Union School Superintendent said that the school will soon decide whether or not they will amend their dress code.



A teenager has collapsed and died at a school in the United States after consuming a high level of caffeine. 

The family of the teen are warning about the dangers of excessive caffeine intake, according to Breaking News.

David Allen Cripe drank a coffee, a large fizzy drink and an energy drink in the space of two hours, and suffered from a 'caffeine-induced cardiac event.'

The 16-year-old didn't have an undiagnosed heart condition, the coroner confirmed.

'Parents please, talk to your kids about the dangers of these energy drinks,' David's father Seán said. 

'Teenagers and students, please stop buying them.'

'There’s no reason to consume then, they can be very dangerous.'

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that adolescents, age 12 to 18, should not consume more than 100 milligrams of caffeine per day.



Although it may be have been totally unintentional, sometimes being embarrassed by our parents when we were teens was just part of the territory.

And it’s good to see that even big time celebrity parents still make their kids cringe.

That’s exactly what happened when Mark Wahlberg brought his 13-year-old Ella with him while he was promoting his latest film, Deepwater Horizon on The Dan Patrick Show.

Given the chance to speak on air, Ella thought she’d try and get one over on her dad

“Dad, I want to hear you rap… right now,” Ella said while smirking at her father.

But Mark got his own back when busted out with a rap about Ella leaving the teen mortified.

Yes, even a big-time movie star and regular on the "sexiest men in the world" lists can embarrass their kids.

Check out her reaction below.



You know those painfully embarrassing pictures you stumble across from time to time when rummaging through boxes at home? Well, how would you feel if your parents posted them all over social media?

That's exactly what happened this teen and she's taking her parents to court because of it.

An 18-year-old woman is suing her parents for posting pictures of her to social media without her permission.

The woman says that her parents have been consistently posting images of her on Facebook since 2009 and that it has had a major impact on her life.

Her lawyer, Michael Rami has said that more than 500 pictures of the Austrian woman have been posted with her knowledge or consent.

The pictures taken by the parents capture intimate childhood moments like being potty trained and having her nappy changed.

“They knew no shame and no limit, and didn’t care whether it was a picture of me sitting on the toilet or lying naked in my cot.

“Every stage was photographed and then made public,” the woman says.

The teen claims she made multiple attempts to get her parents to remove the pictures before taking legal action.

“I’m tired of not being taken seriously by my parents.”

Based on the history of these types of cases around the world, Mr Rami thinks his client’s parents could have to fork out for a major compensation and cover the cost of her legal fees.



A Lurgan teen who bravely shared her cancer story through Facebook is being remembered today through an online fundraiser which was created by her mother in her honour.

Rebecca Haughey passed away on Thursday September 8 at Belfast City Hospital after a lengthily battle with cancer and less than two months after she publicly declared her determination to battle the disease in a heart-wrenching social media post.

Upon learning in late July that her cancer was fatal, Rebecca took to Facebook to share a powerful open letter in which she described the initial shock of hearing that her cancer was no longer responding to treatment and her renewed determination to use a combination of mainstream and holistic treatments to battle the disease.

In a post marked “feeling determined” the popular teen wrote: “My consultant told me that my white blood cell count was back up and it looked like the cancer was working too fast for my treatment to catch up with it.  She doubted there was much she could do for me.”

“Understandably, I was in a state of shock.  I was basically just told that I was going to die.  All I could say was, ‘No.  This can't be happening.  No.  There has to be something you could do.  No.  No.  No.’”

Choosing to use the devastating news as a motivator, the Armagh student continued: “That news gave me the kick up the back side I needed to make me more determined than ever to succeed.  To beat this ruddy cancer that had taken over my life.”

“I told the doctor to put me back onto the steroids and other meds to keep my white cell counts under control. I decided to become more strict with my new alkaline diet…[and] that afternoon my mum…got me hemp oil.”

“It's going to be a long, difficult journey ahead but through Hell or high water, I'm going to get through it all and prove to my consultant that this will not beat me.”

Through a Just Giving page set up in Rebecca’s memory, her mother Colette Haughey has encouraged people to support a number of charities which helped her family throughout Rebecca’s illness and reminded people how her daughter would want to be remembered for who she was, rather than as a victim of cancer.

On the page – which has already raised over £1,500 – Ms Haughey described her daughter’s “strength, determination and relentless hope and positivity” as “infectious” before acknowledging the importance of Friends of the Cancer Centre, Cancer Fund for Children, The Boom Foundation and CLIC Sargent.
