For the Public Health by Anthony Parrillo, Ph.D., CHES

Asthma is a chronic lung condition, which means it lasts a long time – usually three months or more. Once someone has asthma, it won't just disappear. A person with asthma has difficulty breathing, due to narrowing of the air passages, mucous secretions, and inflammation of the airways.

Asthma during childhood has a great impact on the growth and development of children and their families, and is a leading cause of chronic illness in children. In 2004, nearly nine million children nationwide under the age of 18 ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Parents unwittingly pass anxiety to their kids

Since the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year, several elementary teachers have asked me why so many of today's kids come to school with anxiety issues. That's a good question, one that I think goes to the heart of contemporary American parenting.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: In the light or the dark: Where will you live?

A preaching friend I knew in south Mississippi about a hundred years ago recently wrote about his summer vacations at his "Granddaddy and Mamaw's" house and the "neat" experience of having to get drinking water via the hand pump and dipper at the well. I wrote him and told him I could remember similar experiences at my dad's family farm in Indiana. The biggest differences, I guess, were the lack of a pump on the well. Grandpa used a bucket, rope and pulley to get the water up, though there was a hand pump attached to the kitchen ...
