Editor’s Note: Congratulations to Metro Augusta Parent writer Tara Wood and her husband, Garrett. On June 25, they added Marigold Alice, 5 pounds, 15 ounces, to their brood of six (now seven) and couldn’t be happier.

Let’s face it, young people do some extremely stupid stuff on social media. Most people will remember a few years back when a Taco Bell employee was pictured licking a stack of taco shells standing in the middle of the kitchen dressed in his full uniform.
