Sam Houston's first home

While one man is going to prison after intercepted text messages, another is seeing his case under similar circumstances begin in the court system. At 6, Blair Ledet speaks with a counselor who explains how and why you should monitor your children's phones.

Also at 6, Erika Bazaldua explains how some elementary students were motivated to take on craft projects to celebrate black history, with no incentives of grades or extra credit on the line.

And at 10, Caleb Beames will introduce you to a young man who isn't even old enough to drive a car, but is one of the top up-and-coming go kart acts in the world.
