>> all right? so after 20 minutes the riders sat up there. they had to climb down the side of the roller coaster. >> wow. what if it had started going just then? >> people were hyperventilating. i think they were a combination of exhilarated and freaked out. i went on that cyclone and it really throws you around and it's old school. it's wooden and it knocks you around. >> life knocks you around. why add to it? >> exactly. >> okay. so a spokesperson at luna park said the historic roller coaster has undergone tests over the past month. they said safety is the number one priority for our guests. yep. luna park. this was an isolated issue. okay, we hope so. >> all right. okay. so there was -- okay, so this mom decided that there was a mom who took her kids to -- dropped her kids off at the movies. i think her daughter or stepdaughter and son in alabama. >> kyesha smith. >> she dropped them off at the
theater to see "cinderella." when she picked them up, the boy said the girls were being rude and obnoxious, and some lady was upset during the movie. and the woman asked them if they could quiet down because they were being disrespectful. and i guess the woman approached the girls after the movie and said, look, i just want you guys to know my husband lost his job. i brought my daughter to this movie for some quiet time to enjoy a film and you guys kind of ruin it had for us. >> and we don't know when we'll ever be able to see another movie when we don't have that kind of disposable income. >> right. so the mom of the rude girls heard about this. you know what she did? >> i love what she did. >> she posted this note on facebook, on the community facebook. and she said she was disappointed and ashamed of her girls' behavior and she wanted to track down the woman. and so the thing got sent all over the place. >> all over. >> she had the girls write an apology letter. >> good. >> and -- >> and then they have to pay out of their allowance for another movie and snacks out of their allowance in the future. which i think was excellent excellent parenting. >> a lot of parents would say
who said what to you? >> a lot of them would say, not my girls right off the bat. or then they'd say what did the woman say to you as if the woman is the problem. >> is the one who's the bad person. well, good for the mom. >> so the jefferson county sheriff's office shared the post and that's how they tracked her down. her name is rebecca boyd and she says she was touched to be tracked down. anyway, what do you all think? let us know. >> yeah. people don't like to disappoint other people's kids because they're not quite sure what to say to them or how they might react or what might happen. >> more and more and more in the movies there is such rude behavior now. even if they're not talking, they're on their phone and their lights are going off and you hear buzzing. yeah. >> totally agree. >> all right. we'll go. >> all about our fabulous show, we're going to show you our favorite things, but you'll have to wait until the end of the show, and they're interesting. >> because i guess today's "buzz" is just so much more important that we get to. >> it is.

we're back with more of "today" on this funday monday. this week many of you will gather around the table for an easter feast or passover. >> but who sits where and who cleans up, and should there be kids at the table? with so many questions we turn to the expert for advice, mr. manners himself, thomas p. farley. >> nice to see you again. >> hello. >> nice to be back with us. >> thank you for being with us today. >> a lot of times you bring something along with. should you -- is there something you should bring? is wine okay or flowers or something? >> should you always bring something? or can you send it afterwards? >> so two things. first you want to make sure you offer to bring a dish. the host may decline. you can still bring something but just make sure it's not a scene stealer. don't bring the giant bunny cake that's going to steal the thunder of the host.
>> but also, if they don't ask, i mean, if the guests don't say can i bring something, is it okay for the host to say, hey, would you mind also bringing that fantastic pie you made last time? is that okay? >> that's the key. so you don't want to have them bring the main course, obviously. you don't want to ask them to make something they've never done before. but if it's something you can kind of feed their ego a little bit, everybody loves your salad. could you bring that? >> we have a table full of lovelies. >> yes, we do. >> we have addi who is so stinkin' cute. along with mom, susan and dad, mike. susan, of course is one of our producers on the show. okay. so let's pretend -- >> look at her. >>my addi! >> okay. sometimes kids need to be distracted. thank you. is it okay to give a phone? an ipad or something just to keep -- thank you. keep her occupied? is that okay? >> here's the thing. parents may do without iphones and ipads at the table for all of recorded history.
exactly, exactly. so although it's a nice, easy thing to do, i'd recommend against it because you'll be going down a slope that it's hard to turn back. >> mm-hmm. they're going to want it the next day. >> should you have kids at the table in general? addi can always come. >> or should you have a separate kids' table where they can do their thing and draw? >> with a baby as cute as addi, i don't know how you separate yourself but for older kids, i think it can be a great option especially if you've got multiple children. it gives them a nice chance to bond and a good chance to have some adult time. >> what do you guys do if addi has a little freak-out? >> probably just walk away from the table. >> i wasn't quite sure. okay. what about the passing thing? >> yeah. you're only supposed to pass to the right? >> yeah, this started because the guest of honor would always be seated to the host's right. so the guest of honor would get the plate first. that's where it began. >> oh. where you are, to my right. where i am to him. so we're all guests of honor. >> you're my right-hand woman
here in this case. >> okay. >> so the other thing is when you pass to the right it gives the person the opportunity to grab with the left and then serve themselves with their right hand. if they're right-handed so it makes it a little easier. >> anybody here left-handed? kate? >> kate's not. >> what about dishes and such? >> so washing the dishes, certainly i think everybody should take turns clearing their own plates. you don't want a mass exodus where everybody's going to the kitchen. by the same token, you should really have everybody chipping in. exactly. >> what about the washing of them? >> you know this is a tough thing for the host, right? you want to be present for your guest. but at the same time, you need to be clearing the table. you need to be keeping that kitchen clean for the next course. >> right. >> so i'd say if you have a helper, have the helper come in and do a little bit of washing with you. >> what about dessert? should you serve dessert, like, right away? or should we get up and get coffee or do you just bring it right on? >> at a meal like this you need some digestion time. right after dinner is a great chance to do your egg hunt, to do a little walk, some sporting
activities. have some fun. work off the food. and then come back. and if you've got somebody that's got a super sweet tooth, have little dishes of jelly beans around so they can feed themselves. >> if kate won't leave and the party's over, how do you get people -- how do you get people to exit after dish's over? >> i've got the perfect -- >> kate will drink every glass of wine you've got in that house. >> the perfect line is you say oh, my goodness, we have so many wonderful leftovers. kate, what can i send you home with? okay? this bottle's for you. >> thank you. >> thank you, everybody. how about addi? give it up for little addi. all righty. the power of prayer and the science behind how it's affecting your children. plus, the youngest author ever to hit "the new york times" best-seller's list. >> how 15-year-old jake marcionette became a novelist at 12.

>> it can be allah, god the universe, but some type of personal relationship with a higher power is more protective against mental health problems and suffering than anything known to the medical or social sciences. >> reporter: and miller says prayer plays a role. so how can we -- is prayer part of your daily life? >> yes. prayer is a way to communicate with god. it's something essential for me. when you pray to god it's not something that you have to have something in your head, but basically have god there all the time. >> reporter: raise your hand if you think you can be spiritual but not religious. mm-hmm. kind of. >> i'm spiritual but i don't consider myself to be religious. my father is jewish and my mother is catholic, but i don't practice religion in any way. i meditate. sometimes i speak to god. and i don't even know if i believe in god. so it's spiritual but it's not organized in any way for me. >> i am also not very religious,
so i actually find to get through times at school you know i love soccer. when i'm playing soccer, i think somehow that helps me clear my mind. >> reporter: so would you consider yourselves spiritual? >> yeah. >> reporter: anybody else want to comment? yes. >> so my religion, islam and us muslims pray five times a day. before we pray we do, like, a spiritual where you do like a wash before you start praying. it's kind of like overlap for us. >> reporter: so you're spiritual and also religious? >> right. >> reporter: whether talking to god or finding your own personal spirituality modern-day scientists now have proof of something our ancestors may have always known. prayer can help protect our kids. >> praying five times throughout the day reminds me why i'm still here.
