Adults live and work in air-conditioned buildings. So why do some folks seem determined that kids should 'suck it up' with no air conditioning, on particularly scorching hot days? Proud Jersey Girl Erin Vogt debunks the "character-building" argument.

I just had to take a minute and address the 'back in my day' argument I saw, scattered around on social media during NJ's recent heat wave. I'd rather teach my kids about being responsible and persevering through 'tough times' at home, where there's less fear of heat stroke and dehydration.

Proud Jersey Girl Erin Vogt’s first reporting gig involved her Fisher Price tape recorder. As a wife and momma of two kiddies, she firmly believes that life’s too short to drink bad coffee.  A fan of the beach, Dave Grohl and karma, in no particular order.
