Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Don't start your child's 'anti-bullying education' too early

Q: My oldest child starts kindergarten soon. I know there will be the class and/or bus bully who will cause her some distress, whether directly or indirectly. I want to know how to handle it before it happens so I'm prepared. I feel she will have to learn to handle situations like this as time goes on, but at this age she will need my guidance and intervention. What should I say to her now, to prepare her, and how I should handle incidents when and if they occur?

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Restaurants coming back to downtown

Several years ago, we had three restaurants open in downtown Statesboro in a relatively short span of time - 119 Chops, Hugo's and Statesboro Brews. It was so much fun to go downtown, pick a restaurant, and just have a good time. They really did "feed" off of one another.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - What’s the practical value of faith in God?

Faith is the channel through which we receive the blessings of God designed for his children. "By grace ... through faith" is the way Paul said it in his letter to the Ephesians (2:8). While it is true that "... he makes his sun rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust" (Matthew 5:45), the Lord blesses those who love him in spiritual ways reserved for them alone.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents must find balance when dealing with misbehavior

In the late 1960s, as psychologist B. F. Skinner's behavior modification theory made the jump from academia into popular culture, the focus in child rearing shifted from molding character to "shaping" behavior. Books such as Gerald Patterson's Living with Children promised perfectly well-behaved children through the proper manipulation of rewards and punishments such as time-out and systematic removal of privilege.

Kathy Bradley - 10,000 acres and one new word

In opening the back door, I flush a flock of birds at the edge of the branch, their wings fluttering fast and thick like shuffled cards. They rise and disappear too quickly for me to make out any markings and they make no sound from which I, were I a person who knew birdcalls, could identify them. The strip of field grass, broom sedge, and dandelions that separates the branch from the backyard is relatively narrow and, on this filmy, overcast morning, their small feathered bodies are little more than momentary smudges across my contact lenses.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - 3-year-old's new favorite word is 'stupid'

Q: The first time my 3-year-old called his 4-year-old brother "stupid" I was caught off guard and probably made too big a deal over it. I told him that he is not allowed to call a person stupid because it is hurtful. He promptly began calling the dog, his cup, and everything else under the sun "stupid." He loves to call people "stoopy" or "foopid" or "poopid" (especially that one, since it combines two words he knows annoy me!) I've created a monster, haven't I? I have started ignoring the behavior, but what should I do when he ...

Fun with Family with Julie Lavender - Summer still lingers, though classes have begun 

The first few days of a new school year have passed, but according to the calendar - and thermometer, summer days linger. While celebrating a fresh year of school, don't forget to continue making summer memories, like another trip to the ocean, one more watermelon, or sprinkler fun on a hot day. In addition to those warm-weather activities, try some of these holiday suggestions or create family ones of your own.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Germany seizes the Atlanta during WWII

Between 1802 and 1906 there were 14 schooners sailing the North Atlantic named the Atlanta. They ranged from the 45-ton vessel built in Maine in 1848 to the 104-ton ship built in Nova Scotia in 1862.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - What is real Christian discipleship?

Some people have difficulty understanding what it means to be a Christian. Does it mean going to church, praying regularly and often, and reading the Bible daily? Does living as a Christian mean following a bunch of "dos and don'ts?" I would suggest it means all these things and others as well, but there is really no place in scripture that gives a neat list of what is involved in following Jesus.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Those really were the 'good old days'

Jim Fusilli, rock and pop reviewer for The Wall Street Journal, recently opined that Rolling Stone magazine's Top 500 Songs of All Time reflected "boomer bias," pointing out that a disproportionate number of selections were from the 1960s and 1970s. That got me thinking of the many times I've been accused of idealizing 1950s child rearing. I do, in fact, often compare the manner in which children were raised in those halcyon days with today's "parenting," daring to say that the 1950s was a much better time for kids.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Learning more about God from Jesus' parables

One of Jesus' favorite methods of teaching was the use of parables, described by someone long ago as "an earthly story with a heavenly meaning." The parable of the "Prodigal Son" is one of his most instructive about the nature of the heavenly father.

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 ...
