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 - How’s your memory?

A friend of mine is fond of saying that if it wasn't for his wife, he wouldn't have a past! A lot of folks - maybe most - have trouble with memory as they get older. That has certainly been my experience.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parent worries child will view punishment as unfair

Q: My 21-month-old has started hitting. Whenever he hits his 4-year-old sister, I put him in his crib until he calms down. Recently, however, his sister has started hitting back. I don't want her thinking that I go easier on him when it comes to discipline. How do I implement fair and effective punishment for the same offense for children of different ages?

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Children need consistant discipline

Q: My ex-husband has our 3-year-old son from Thursday through Saturday, every weekend. When I hand him over to his dad, he's fairly well behaved, but when I get him back, he's disrespectful and defiant. It takes a day or two to get him back on track. I work very hard to discipline consistently and it seems his dad unravels everything I accomplish.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Time-out rarely works for 2-year-olds

Q: When I ask him to do something, my 2-year-old screams "No!" and then swings at me. When he hits me, I firmly reprimand him and try to put him in time-out, but that only makes matters worse. I've tried ignoring his screaming, but that doesn't work. What should I do?

Kathy Bradley - 4224 Second Street, East Beach

This week my friend Lea found herself packing up and leaving forever a place that she dearly loves. It has belonged to her family for over 40 years and has held not just the funky, eclectic mixture of furniture that houses at the beach normally collect, but significant memories for four generations and more than a little piece of each of their hearts. Her last night there it was just Lea and a blow-up mattress and two lawn chairs. She wrote on her Facebook wall, "Feeling like Sam in the last episode of Cheers, where he is the last person ...

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

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 ...
