Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Fear is not always a bad thing

I recently came across a 1951 article my late mother saved from the Charleston (S.C.) News and Courier. Titled "Agency Offers Pointers on How Parents Can Guide Their Child's Emotional Development," it is proof that parents and professionals of three generations ago possessed a wealth of common sense, a quality that has since become most uncommon.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Celebrate spring with strawberries

Happy spring! We have survived the long, cold, dark, snowy and rainy days of winter, and I couldn't be happier to lay the power outages to rest and welcome the sunshine, watch the azaleas reveal their colors and see the earth bloom back to life. I've always loved this season, and I may be a little biased. My birthday is in April, the Masters golf tournament returns to my hometown of Augusta, Ga., and my family and I keep I-95 South hot with trips to my favorite vacation destination: St. Simons Island in the beautiful Golden Isles of ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Don't drive yourself nuts trying to raise perfect kids

Q: My 6-year-old son is a bright and friendly kindergartner. Each day, a color-coded chart is sent home about his behavior. This year, he's gone through several spells during which he will have a "bad color" for several days in a row. Each time this occurs, we punish him by not allowing him to play soccer, sending him to bed early, confining him to his room for the evening or taking away TV, but none of this is having any long-term effect. The misbehavior - talking out of turn and not keeping his hands to himself - will happen for a ...

Guest column: The next frontier: Birth to 3

Now that Georgia's Pre-K Program has celebrated its 20th anniversary, I am often asked about the "next frontier" in early childhood education in Georgia. There's no doubt that Georgia was a pioneer in prekindergarten, a program that, according to a recent report of year 2 of a longitudinal study, significantly impacts language, literacy and math skills in pre-K students.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Don't be discouraged by potty-training setbacks

Q: I've been using the method described in your toilet-training book with my 18-month-old daughter, and she's been doing great during the day. She rarely has an accident. However, I'm still using a diaper at nap-time and during the night. (I'm waiting for some consistency in dryness before taking that away). Is that correct?

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Teach children Biblical principles

Almost everyone agrees that the example parents set for their children is of paramount importance. Unless we model the standards we desire for our children, it isn't likely they will value or follow them very closely.

An Easter feast of roasted lamb

Over two French doors in my kitchen hangs a sign that reads, "Good wine, good friends, good times." That couldn't have described the scene around my table more on the cool and rainy Tuesday night we had earlier this week. I'd invited a few of my closest friends to my early Easter feast, where we would dine on roasted lamb with mint chutney and farm-style side dishes hailing from the soil of Screven County.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Torturing animals raises suspicions of sociopathy

Q: My 18-year-old son and a slightly younger friend recently found some mice and decided to dispose of them. They drowned one and set the other one on fire. When I confronted my son for torturing animals, his response was, "They're just mice." Is this typical boy behavior, or should I be concerned?

Slow down and enjoy the moment

Twenty-five years ago when Julie and I drove into Statesboro with the kids, we knew we had been blessed by God Who had brought us home. Strangers waved at us as we drove in, the streets were clean and there was little traffic up and down old two-lane Fair Road. I think there were only a few places to eat - mostly family style - and Georgia Southern College had perhaps 9,000 students.

Tribute to a friend I met online

All too often, we hear horror stories about "meeting" people online. It's true that predators and crazy people use the Internet as a tool to take advantage of others, but if one uses common sense, the world of cyberspace can lead to true, real relationships.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Video games proving very problematic for teen boys

Q: Our 14-year-old son seems depressed - to us, at least. His principal sees no sign of depression but thinks he's socially anxious. The subjects of counseling and medication have come up. We have suggested to him that he get more exercise and spend less time playing video games and watching TV, but he says he hates sports. He appears to be withdrawing more and more into his video-screen world.

'Elijah' took me to Israel

It has been some 30 years since my brother-in-law and I stood on the top of Mount Carmel in northern Israel, the site of the remarkable biblical encounter between Elijah and the priests of Baal. We had talked about 1 Kings 17 the night before and when we realized that we were not bound to the travel itinerary and read about a side trip to Haifa - just a few miles from Mount Carmel - we jumped at the chance.

Guest column: Preventing cervical cancer

A cancer diagnosis, no matter the type, can be sobering for any patient. Cervical cancer in particular can be frightening for women with fears that the diagnosis eliminates their chance to have children, or worse. As a gynecological oncologist, helping women understand the importance of preventative care can mitigate many of the threats associated with cervical cancer.

The importance of teachers

Recently, I exited my editor's office to find a lady waiting to speak to me. I was quite flabbergasted when she told me I was a former student of her father's, and that he spoke of me often until his death earlier this year.
