Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Stop expecting boys to behave more like girls

Q: When my 3-and-one-half year-old son misbehaves, I generally take things away from him, and he generally responds well. One lingering problem is that he tends to react physically when he's mad at a classmate instead of talking it out and letting the teachers intervene. We all have encouraged him to use words when he's angry, but he doesn't seem to get it.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Don't accommodate child's irrational fears

Q: Because he is afraid of sharks, my fourth-grade son does not want to participate in an upcoming school field trip to an aquarium. In all other respects, he is perfectly normal. He's a great student and has lots of friends, and other parents and teachers love him. He doesn't give us or his teachers any problems at all.

Kathy Bradley - Dancing with the seeing-eye dog

When I was a girl, the only college football games on television on Saturday afternoon involved teams whose nicknames I did not understand (Sooners, Buckeyes) and whose players' names all seemed to have not enough vowels. I had no connection to Oklahoma or Ohio, Nebraska or Notre Dame, and it took me a long time to realize that I watched not for the competition itself, but for the broadcast. I watched so I could hear Keith Jackson.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Sad to see Statesboro Mall end Leon's lease

I was saddened several weeks ago when Leon Shelkoff called to tell me that his store, Leon's Menswear in the Statesboro Mall, would close at the end of 2012. Documentation provided to me by Shelkoff showed the owners of the mall - Hull Storey Gibson Companies, LLC - had called Shelkoff's lease requiring him to vacate the premises by January 6, 2013.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Emotional consequences are child's alone

Q: When I attempt to put my 3-and-one-half year-old daughter in her room for punishment, she refuses to go. I have to pick her up and take her, during which time she flails her arms, screams and kicks. My back is paying for the struggle. Her dad doesn't have this problem with her, by the way. What can I do to make her go on her own without getting physical with her?

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child's manners reflect character

Driving in Southern California recently, listening to talk radio, I heard a commercial for a Christian private school.

Send your child to Veryhighscore Academy! We will bring out the best in your child!

What is our purpose in life?

I believe it was back in 1939 when a very popular author, James Thurber, wrote a short novel about an unusual man he named "Walter Mitty." It became so well read that it was produced for Broadway, made into a movie around 1947 - which I remember watching - and remade in 2013. If you're one of those purists, I guess you won't like my position, but I really liked Danny Kaye and Ben Stiller, who played the role of Walter Mitty. I suppose my reason for being so attached to the character is that, like many others (I hope ...

Kathy Bradley: Little black dresses don't prepare you for everything — especially not tragedies

It is a fashion rule that has been around so long, it is, like a politician, known by its initials: LBD. Little black dress. Every woman has to have one. Young or old or in-between, Southerner or Yankee, debutante or farm wife. You can dress it up or dress it down. A well-made LBD in a classic style will last forever, and you will be prepared to accept any invitation.

Remembering radio in the 1940s

When I was a little over 5 years of age, I remember lying on the floor in front of our big old Zenith radio listening to whatever just happened to be on that evening. The adults liked the news and stuff like: "Allen's Alley," "George Burns and Gracie Allen," while Shirley Jo and I loved "Little Orphan Annie," "The Lone Ranger," "Superman" and the comedy programs. I'll never forget that one evening when President F.D. Roosevelt announced the bombing of Pearl Harbor, "A day that will live in infamy!" It was only a few weeks later when ...
