This type of failure should not happen. That said, here's a suggestion for a "quick 'n dirty" workaround if you have this type of cooktop. Take a small file, and file a small notch on the bottom edge of each pot lid. If you set the hot lid on a cold surface, the notch will allow air to flow under it as it cools, preventing the formation of a vacuum. The notch would not interfere with the normal use of the lid, as far as I can see, since the bottom edge of the lid doesn't contact the pot during use.

Very good suggestions Larry! I will certainly do this, cause now to be honest with you, I'm scared to let my little girl into the kitchen anymore! Thanks Larry!

It's to much work cooking on a stove top....my guess is he trades it in for a microwave

UPDATE: Got home last night and there's a big box with a "Emergency Fed Ex" shipping label on it. It's the glass from GE!! The guy will be here tomorrow between 8-5. I'm thoroughly 1000% satisfied with GE thus far!! This started off as a possible nightmare in the makings, but GE is certainly making it into a very pleasant experience!!
