The Lies We Tell

Who lies the most, men or women? A British study found men win that particular battle of the sexes. The Science Museum of London found men tell an average of three lies a day but women are the better liars.

The most common lie for men, denying they had too much to drink.
For women, “Nothing’s wrong, I’m fine.” Check out CNN.com for the top 10 lies told by both sexes.

Just Leave 'Em...

A New York mom, a well-known writer and blogger, is organizing "National Take Your Kids to the Park and Leave Them There Day" for this Saturday. Lenore Skenazy says "helicopter parents" are always hovering over their kids these days, preventing them from having the sense of free play that we had when we were young. Skenazy says the world isn't actually more dangerous for them, but we all feel it is, and we're stifling our kids' creativity.

We want to hear what you think. What's the right age to start doing this? She says 7 or 8. Do you agree with Skenazy and her philosophy?

She’s joining us live at 11am ET. Leave a comment or question and we’ll share some of them on air in the CNN Newsroom.

Men Battle Postpartum Depression

You may have heard of postpartum depression in women who have just given birth, but a new study shows men can also be affected. The study released in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows one in 10 fathers suffer from it, and in most cases go untreated. The study found new fathers who experience postpartum depressions are generally happy after birth, but the depression starts about three months later. The risk is increased almost 50 percent if the father is living with a mother who suffers from it. Medical experts say both men and women should see a doctor if they start to experience unusual physical or mental changes.

Coming up at 10:30am ET on CNN Newsroom we’ll talk more about this with a doctor and a dad who experienced postpartum depression.

We also want to hear from both mothers and fathers about your experience with postpartum depression.
Post your comments here. Fredricka will read some of them on the air during the 10am ET hour of Newsroom.
