A Dedham mother has asked Urban Outfitters to relocate what she called "graphic" books, after the mom went into the Legacy Place shop with her 13-year-old daughter. In an interview with Dedham Patch, Ann Hunnewell said clothing at Urban Outfitters fits her daughter best right now, and would like to keep shopping there, but without seeing the sexually-charged books. As parents become more aware of Urban Outfitters nearly three years after opening, more feedback could be coming. And there are solutions to the issue, Legacy Place management said.

The gift-giving season is officially here. As you hit the shops this holiday season, we want to know if your children's teachers are on the shopping list. We're wondering: is it OK, or do you feel compelled to give your kid's teachers gifts for the holidays? Is it seen as "sucking up" to the teacher if you do so? Are there rules against parent-teacher gift exchanges in schools, or do you have your own set of guidelines to follow when choosing a gift for a teacher? Let us know what you think about the whole in-school gift exchange in the comments section below.
