Thinking of God

As with other newspapers, the Statesboro Herald periodically publishes the names of local students who've been named to their school's Honor Roll. Being added to that roll is quite an accomplishment, requiring hard, steady work from people of good character. It's an achievement for which students and parents alike can rightfully be proud. A popular bumper sticker tells the world, "My Child is an Honor Student at..." followed by the name of the educational institution.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Potty training is a process

Q: My 26-month-old daughter will go on the potty happily every hour when told - we're using your "potty bell," and it's working extremely well - and produces every time. As a result, she's having very few, if any, wee incidents. However, we still have to catch her before an impending bowel movement - she usually begins releasing gas - and rush to get her to the potty. She will sit and poop on the potty, but at day care (three days a week), they can't watch her every second; therefore, she often poops in her pants there. How can ...
