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 ...

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Farmers market Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is that time during the year when so many of the things I hold dear culminate - summertime, family, fireworks, all-American food, tradition, pride. Whether it's on the front porch of the family cabin or beneath the sky on a blanket by the ocean, year after year, l revel in celebrating our nation's independence.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Change is possible only through God

A regular perusal of news outlets is enough to show that our world is in a mess, to put it mildly. Of course, this is nothing new. Political agendas, personal desires and worldly viewpoints always have made improving human relationships an uphill battle.

There's plenty to do around here

I like Proverbs for several reasons: I learn something new every time I read it; the sayings are wise and easily understood; the glory of young men is in their strength, but the beauty of old men is their gray hair and great legs; grandchildren are the crown of the aged and that's why we had children. I realize that I have taken a few liberties so give me some slack.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Lying is a difficult problem to solve

Q: We are very concerned about our 8-year-old grandson's lying. He always pleads innocence and wonders plaintively why no one ever believes him. When someone confronts him with some misdeed they saw him do (for example, poking holes in the back door screen), he merely shrugs his shoulders and grins.

Kathy Bradley - For Ophelia

So bright that I could make out the fluted edges of the leaves of the geraniums. So bright that the rocking chairs glowed in the shadows of the porch. So bright that across the way I could tell, even in the dark of midnight, where the field ends and the woods begin. It was the first honey moon to fall on Friday the 13th in almost a hundred years, an event that will not happen again, according to astronomers, until 2098, an appointment I will not be able to keep.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parental anxiety over toilet training leads to pushback

Q: We began toilet training our daughter when she was 21 months old. Within 10 days, she was using the toilet consistently for Number One. She now wears underwear 24/7 because she doesn't even wet her bed.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Too much help can lead to needy kids, stressed mothers

Kathy Bradley - Traffic signs

About halfway between the communities of Adabelle and Excelsior is a creek bridge. On the Bulloch County side of the bridge, the county-maintained highway is known as Adabelle Road. On the Candler County side, it is called Dutch Ford Road, though most of us who live nearby refer to it simply as the road to Excelsior. The two-lane highway, called by whatever nomenclature one chooses, has long been an obstacle course of potholes, wash-out and loose gravel. The fact that the population of deer in the neighborhood vastly outnumbers the population of people adds to the overall perilous nature of ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Arguing is no fun for parents or children

I absolutely love it when people begin to realize that the problems they're having with a child are of their own making; when they begin to realize, in other words, that the child is not the problem - they are! All this time (however long that might be), they've been trying to correct the wrong person - the child - getting nowhere and becoming nothing but frustrated in the process. Instead, they need to correct themselves, and it goes without saying that correcting one's self is much, much easier than trying to correct someone else.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Nighttime bed-wetting may sort itself out

Q: Using your advice, I successfully toilet-trained my daughter by age 16 months. It is now three months later and we are still using diapers at naps and nighttime. At her nap, which lasts several hours, she fully soaks her diaper. At night, she is taking off her diaper prior to falling asleep, wetting the bed after she goes to sleep, and then crying for us when she wakes up in a pool of pee.

Take science seriously, but believe

At times, I enjoy the computer because there is so much information accessible at the touch of a button. I remember asking a student to type in the word cuneiform to see what she could find. She said, "It seems to be some kind of language, Mesopotamian or something, printed on a clay tablet. So what's the big deal?"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child's anxiety may be caused by sudden changes

Q: Since our daughter - now 2 years old - was born, we have lived with my parents. Being the first and only grandchild, she has been the center of attention. Several months ago, our son was born and we moved into our own home. Almost immediately, our daughter began pulling her hair out, sometimes in handfuls. Doctors have said she does it for attention and we should just ignore it. That's what we've done but it has not stopped. It's now gotten so bad that I've cut her hair because the side she pulls has gotten so ...

Kathy Bradley - Imagine that!

I am lying on my back. The darkness outside the window has a green tinge to it, as though the night has mildewed. If there is a moon or any stars, they are blocked by the limp branches of the mimosa trees and the shed in the backyard - neither of which I can see, both of which I know are there. Also, there is the clothesline where my mother hangs the wet sheets and towels that flap and flap and flap and come back inside dry.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Children may pick up sassiness from television shows

Q: The "sassiness" that I have heard so much about from my friends started a few months ago with my 5-year-old daughter. She will say things to me that I actually find myself tongue-tied on how or what to say to correct her. Sometimes, she apologizes, which tells me she knows she's talking disrespectfully to me. What do you think about 10 minutes of timeout for this sort of thing?

God is in control of our lives

I was reading a document recently about a man whose wife committed suicide. From all that he said, she was lovely, talented, intelligent and extraordinary in so many ways, but had a well-diagnosed illness that the best counseling couldn't cure.
