Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Dating is not a subject dad will discuss

Q: My husband won't allow our 17-year-old daughter to date. She is an excellent student, very involved in activities at school and church, and has never given us any major problems. A rather brave boy has tried repeatedly to ask my husband to date our daughter, but my husband won't even give him the time of day, despite the fact that he's a good kid from a good home. We know his family, and it's become embarrassing for all of us, except my husband, that is. He refuses to even discuss it. The whole situation is ...

John Bressler - Make your choices wisely and carefully

I don't know how many of you read the Wall Street Journal, but occasionally there are some good articles to be found. Last week's was a hoot! It seems that two men in the Pittsburgh area stole a 30,000-pound steel bridge to sell for scrap. I used this for a class in critical thinking.

John Bressler - It is our destiny to do our best to be responsible

When I was in my teenage years, my mother was at the bedside of her father - my wonderful grandfather, "Dad Brown" - just before he died. He was hardly religious - even though he never objected to my attending the local Methodist church - and we never spoke of God, the hereafter or anything remotely resembling religion. My grandmother made up for his lack of beliefs because she always told me bedtime stories. These hardly comforting tales were like, "There was this little boy who was very bad and the devil punished him ... a lot. Good night, sleep tight and don't let ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - A hymn for all the community

A few years ago, "community" was one of the popular words used by speakers and writers, especially among those dealing with Christian themes. It's a good word, denoting the concepts of kinship, harmony and mutual concerns.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Proper behavior follows proper discipline

Once upon a time, I thought, as did and still do many if not most people in my profession, that behavior modification was going to make the discipline of a child as simple and straightforward as teaching a rat to run a maze.

Kathy Bradley - Caribou and coyotes

The fog thins just enough for me to see the sun, a flat white communion wafer floating in a halo of wavy opalescence. The trees and fences and barns beneath it stand unusually straight, as though three dimensions are not enough to spotlight their long lines and sharp angles. My hand on the steering wheel moves left and right, in the easy rhythm of a weaver's shuttle, following the curves of the road toward that flat white sun onto which it was easy to believe that, if I just keep going, I could slide like a base runner stealing ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Pentecost 30 A.D. A day for eternity

The Jews of Jesus' day celebrated several major feast days - Passover, Pentecost and the Feast of Tabernacles or Booths. Pentecost was the second most important of these celebrations, Passover being the most important. It always came exactly fifty days following the Passover Sabbath, according to Leviticus 23:15-l6, and was always on the first day of the week.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Twins have mom's number

Q: My twin boys will be 3 years old next month. They sleep in the same room. They've recently taken to getting out of their beds (together, although one seems to be the ringleader) every night, over and over, for up to two hours. They make a lot of noise, then they giggle and run when I approach, and feed off each other as they're escaping. I'm not sure what to do. All I know is that what I've been doing isn't working! Help!!!

Kathy Bradley - A song and the passing of time

The sun this morning is a cross-section of pink grapefruit back-lit by a strobe light. It balances on the horizon, pulsing and trembling with the tension of anticipation, as though the day cannot begin quickly enough. As the road curves, it moves back and forth like the bouncing ball on the old Mitch Miller television show and I find myself wishing desperately that I knew the song. I try to identify what I am feeling and I settle on wistfulness.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Don't need 'app' for your chores

Full disclosure in four parts: First, I am not a tech-savvy person and never intend to become one. Second, I am convinced that the less technology, the better the life. Third, the technology in my life consists of a laptop, basic cell phone, stereo system, DVD player, flat-screen television, ROKU, and a Digital Video Recorder. Fourth, I do not believe children should have cell phones until they are able to take full responsibility for them, including paying the monthly bill.

Where do you fit in the scheme?

It's last Monday morning and according to the weather report - and somebody got it right this time - it's raining very hard with thunder and lightning, and it's nice to be inside looking out. This afternoon, we have a 100 percent chance of very heavy rain, high winds and a get-ready-to-hunker-down warning, which I will do my best to follow the directions. One of my colleagues has just told me we're not supposed to have this kind of stuff this late in the year. Since he teaches Algebra, what does he know? He knows this: it is ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Gratitude is timeless for Christians

Thanksgiving is more than a single day - it is an attitude about everything in life. Life is made up of past, present and future. The perspective we have on each helps determine our happiness and effectiveness. So, Christians can be grateful for ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: The understated power of "I told you so"

Q: My 6-year-old son argues with me about everything I tell him to do. He comes up with reason after reason why he shouldn't have to or can't, why it's unfair or why, at the least, I should help him. I think he's got some argument disorder. Is there such a thing? In any case, it's beginning to drive me nuts, up a wall, and over the edge. Is there a solution?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Keepin' it classic with Thanksgiving traditions

When it comes to Thanksgiving, I'm a traditionalist at heart. So when I hear modern day chefs and food personalities begin to talk about "turning up the volume on old classics" and "reinventing grandma's recipes," the first thought that comes to mind is the old philosophy, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." On the other hand, I'm always open to trying new dishes and getting creative in the kitchen, but Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without a few classic staples like pumpkin pie, roasted turkey and cranberry sauce from the can (and football and ...

We can choose the gift of God

Almost all old timers - I do not mean Alzheimer's or me - remember when they had a class where the teacher brought up a philosophical exercise about choices. Usually, it had to do with a sinking ship, one lifeboat and too many survivors in shark-filled waters.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Over-involved parents ruin everything

Why are young adult children emancipating so much later than they did in 1970, when the average age of male emancipation (independent living, paying one's own bills) was 21? Why do significant numbers of college professors and even employers complain about parents of young adult students/employees confronting them over, respectively, bad grades and workplace issues? Why have reduced class sizes and increased per-pupil expenditures not resulted in higher academic achievement levels? Why is the mental health of today's kids so poor when compared with that of children in the 1960s and before? Why have school phobia, test ...

Kathy Bradley: The light in autumn

There are so many ways to measure the movement of the year. The temperature of the breeze that comes wafting across the field, the color of the vegetation along the fence rows, the birdsong or lack thereof. Each of them in one way or another announces the passage of time from one season to the next. But breezes and briars and birds can be deceptive. Wet summer winds can demand a sweater. Rain can make an autumn ditch run like spring. Birds can get confused.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Let us praise God openly and naturally

David, the second king of God's special people, Israel, wrote a psalm of praise for his deliverance from his enemies, including Saul, the ruler he had succeeded: "For this I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations, and sing praises to your name" (2 Samuel 22:50).

Living with Children with John Rosemond: The evils of spanking? Well, not so much.

It's time once again for me to clarify my position on spanking. I arrived at this reluctant conclusion because twice in the last week, I've been informed that I believe in it - which is not exactly true.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Enjoy feasts and fellowship this month

Again, recent temperatures belie the season, but it truly is the month of November in south Georgia. Whether warm or crisp, it's the season to be thankful for a bountiful harvest: the love of family and friends and all the memories both have provided throughout the year. Incorporate a spirit of thankfulness in every day with each event, feast or fellowship. Be grateful for the minutiae and the mighty, and enjoy the beauty of November with those you love.
