The Biz e-Friday Countdown recaps the best in the parenting blogosphere. Unfortunately, not all of the posts are happy ones.
This week, we dedicate the Countdown in memory of 8-year-old Brooklyn boy, Leiby Kletzky, who disappeared while walking home from day camp. He was later found dead. Our thoughts are with the friends and family. There are no words adequate to console a parent who has lost a child.
In case you were too busy this week to read all the top blogs yourself, here’s the highlights:

“A Parent’s Waking Nightmare” addresses the recent death of Leiby Kletzky. The reality is that 8 should be old enough to walk in their neighborhood alone, and strangers shouldn’t brutally murder children.
