Kathy Bradley - A fairy tale

I step out on to the deck and take a deep breath. The breeze, brisk but mild, brings no scent of flower or bough, but only the sound of the wind chimes dangling and dancing in the white light of morning. The wet towels I have shaken out into limp flags are draped over the railings of the deck and by noon they will be dry and sun-rough.

Attachment parenting has no proven benefits to parents or children

The cover story in last week's (May 21, 2012) Time Magazine is all about "why attachment parenting drives some mothers to extremes - and how Dr. Bill Sears became their guru." That is the article's subtitle. All I can say, somewhat hopefully, is "at last."

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child's complaints disturb parents

Q: Our oldest son, age eight, has recently started saying that he has no friends, no one likes him, he's no good at anything, and so on. None of this is true, mind you. He's a good kid who does well in school. We are at a loss as to where this is coming from. His younger brothers are bothered by hearing it as well, and we worry about the effect on them. This has been going on for a couple of months now. We've tried talking to him, and we've tried ignoring him. Nothing works ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Turning 50 is turning out to be a blast

I am just going to tell you straight up, this column has little to do with business. It has to do with my march to glory, my 50th birthday this coming July.

Kathy Bradley - Bye, bye, birdie

A couple of weeks ago I stopped for the mail and, before I could get my hand into the box, heard the distinct sounds of baby birds. I quickly drew my hand back, suspecting that I might be in the cross-hairs of the mama somewhere close by. A few seconds went by without the appearance of an angry female of the avian variety, and I reached back in, this time seeing two baby birds sprawled across the stack of sale papers and catalogs.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Teen's grades take a dive just before grading period ends

Q: Our ninth-grade son always manages to get A's and B's on his report card, but just before the report card comes out, his grades take a complete dive. Should we punish him for this or just accept this imperfection?

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Market District development chugs along

I can't help it. About every six months, I have to check into the Market District. I still think that was one of the shrewdest moves I have seen.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Shy, independent children are normal

Q: Our 7-year-old is very shy. He doesn't enjoy the sort of social activities, including sports, that other kids his age are generally involved in and would rather play alone. He has one friend, who is also quite shy. His mother and I have conspired to arrange weekly play dates, but whereas the boys get along fine, both kids sometimes balk at cooperating with them. My son occasionally tells me he'd rather read or play alone than play with this other boy. When I ask why, he tells me he "just would." His school counselor has recommended that ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: God is always a good, wise choice

Years ago, Lindell Doty, a retired preacher and friend of mine now living in Florida, suggested that everybody has choices to make. Now, making decisions can be hard - sometimes so hard that we delay them as long as possible.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Encourage your child's flights of fancy

Today's parents tend to worry about all manner of things that do not deserve second thoughts. Imaginary friends, for example. I've been asked many times by mothers if they should worry that their preschoolers have imaginary friends they seem to think - and in some cases even insist - are real.

Kathy Bradley: Flirting with the sunrise

The color of this early morning in not-quite spring is liquid lavender, is pearly pink, is slightly silver in the way it glints and glows. The sky and the fields and everything in them are shaded as though tinted by a crayon unwrapped and swiped across the countryside with its long barrel, the sharp tip forgotten. Outlines and details are unimportant to the day as it languorously wakens.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Patience is the cure in potty training

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 (waiting for some consistency in dryness before taking that away). Is that correct? The only problem is: She's figured out the routine and now only poops in her diaper when I put her down to sleep. She has not gone poop on the potty during the day for several weeks. Is that cause for concern? Should ...

Time to put away childish things

The other day, I just happened to be in one of our prestigious retailers and my phone rang, so I answered it. It was one of our kids filling us in on the latest news about grandchildren, birthdays and not to forget the presents. Anyway, I noticed some high school-aged children staring at me and I asked, "You need something?"

Living with Children with John Rosemond: A different solution to closet monsters

Q: About six months ago, our four-year old daughter began complaining of being afraid to be alone at bedtime. Upon questioning, she told us she was afraid of monsters in her closet and under her bed. We were unable to convince her otherwise. In fact, the more we talked to her, the more her fears grew to the point where she was becoming nearly hysterical at bedtime. As a result, I began staying with her until she fell asleep. The problem is that she wants to talk and doesn't end up falling asleep until 10 or 11 o'clock ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Those who receive God's comfort must comfort others

"Comfort." It's a nice word, bringing up thoughts of well-being, security and ease. It was a word that reminded the apostle Paul of his relationship with God. Writing to the Corinthian church, he noted that God "comforts us in all our affliction ... (2 Cor. 1:4). Finishing his thought, he added, "... so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God." God expects those whom he has comforted to use their opportunities to help others.

Kathy Bradley: Me and Gloria Gaynor

This is what I heard. This is what I heard this morning. This is what I heard this morning when I walked outside into sunshine. When I walked outside into air that was warm and slightly cloying. This is what I heard: the songs of at least six different birds rising up gently from the branch like the voice of a mother waking her sleeping child. This is what I heard: the drip drip drip of water off the roof onto the curved mouth of the gutter, a message delivered by tom-tom.
