Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents should take time to nurture their marriage

"How can my spouse and I get on the same page where the kids are concerned?" is both the most difficult question parents ask me and the most important. It is the most difficult because each of the parents in question thinks the problem lies with the other, and as long as they cling to that security blanket, the problem cannot be solved. It is the most important question because the strength of a family, and therefore the well-being of its children, depends fundamentally on the parents being in a state of unity.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Zucchini galore

I've often thought farmers and gardeners must be the most creative chefs. They constantly face the challenge of coming up with new ways to eat copious amounts of the season's harvest. Take a walk at our local farmers market or in any grocery store's produce department this time of year and you'll find zucchini in abundance. A green summer squash with mild flavor, zucchini is in season from May to October in Georgia.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Apostle Paul a model of commitment

In "Legacy of a Pack Rat," Ruth Bell Graham tells of a musician who lived in a land where "God's music" was not allowed to be played. Every day, he took out his copy of Handel's "Messiah" and placed it on the dining room table. Then, on the table, his fingers silently played through the entire score.

Kathy Bradley - Remembering moonlight

Sounding like Goethe on his deathbed, I handed the contractor the blueprints for what would become Sandhill and instructed, "Light, that's what I want - as much as possible."

Southeast Bulloch choral concert a delight

It was pure accident that I began singing in choral groups. In my first year of high school - we started in the tenth grade back then - I was taking art appreciation when a good friend said, "John! There's a bunch of kids singing upstairs. You like to sing and all you have to do is to sit, sing and get an "A!"

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Entertain this summer with simple foods, big flavor

It may be springtime, but in true Statesboro fashion, we've already had several 90-degree days. When it's hot outside, I am much more inclined to eat lighter foods such as fresh fruit, green salads and grilled meats - partly because they're healthier options, but mostly because it's swimsuit season.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Do not allow fear to interfere with good parenting

Q: For the first five years of her life, it was just me and my now 13-year-old daughter. I didn't have a clue as to what I was doing. I wasn't consistent; I didn't hold her accountable; I was an enabler. Her behavior toward me became increasingly disrespectful. My second husband tried to open my eyes, but I was in complete denial.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - What did God have in mind for the family?

It has been suggested that God established three great "institutions" for our benefit - family, church and civil government. As he planned them, they are without any defects. When problems come, it is because of man's failings.

Remembering a wonderful mom

It's too bad that Mother's Day only comes once a year insofar as the holidays are concerned. I have a suggestion, but I'll save it for a bit later.

A view from the sidelines

As most of you know, my father, Wright McLeod, ran for Georgia's 12th Congressional District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012. My family and I walked away from the race disappointed, proud and much more informed about people, politics, and patriotism.

Kathy Bradley - Waiting for the fruit to ripen

For 14 years I have walked the circle drive at the Screven County Courthouse. At least once a month for 14 years, I have walked, heels clicking against the pavement, files tucked under my arm or stuffed into a rolling briefcase, toward the double-glass doors and the wide, tiled hallway that leads to the courtroom. As often as not, in warmer weather, I have walked to the tune of a mower moving back and forth over the front lawn like a metronome, breathing in the shaved grass along with the scent of the roses Mrs. Pullen planted at the front ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Boys naturally are more aggressive, impulsive than girls

Q: For the past few months, our usually compliant 4-year-old son has been having problems with defiant behavior at school. He often refuses to do what he is told by the teacher. What concerns us even more, however, is that he recently had two episodes of aggressive behavior toward other children, both very well-behaved girls, and both during snack time. In the first incident, he stabbed a girl with a plastic fork when she told him that she said something he didn't like. The second occurred when he pushed a girl because of some minor territorial dispute.

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.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Celebrate National Ice Cream Month

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Called to be in, not of, the world

Does God want his children involved in the activities of our world? And if so, just what should that entail? This is a question that ought to be of concern to every Christian.

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.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child should outgrow head-banging

Q: When he throws a tantrum, which happens several times a day, my 20-month-old often gets down on the floor and starts banging his head. Worried that he may hurt himself, I pick him up and comfort him. I know that reinforces head-banging, but I don't know what else to do. Making matters worse, a school counselor friend of mine tells me that head-banging is something lots of autistic kids do. I'm at a loss.

Kathy Bradley - Why did it have to be snakes?

The snake was 5 feet long - exactly 5 feet long. I know this because I measured the skin he left in the hosta bed right outside my back door; the skin he left in a soft pile, like dirty clothes he expected his mother to pick up and toss in the laundry; the skin I picked up with a broom handle and stretched across the cool concrete carport, careful not to touch it, because, well, you just never know.
