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 ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Sibling bullying is not acceptable

Q: The younger of my two boys, 10 years old, has started cutting himself when his 13-year-old brother picks on him. His older brother is also verbally abusive to him and at times to me. I'm not sure what to tell the 10-year-old. He's a very sweet boy who does great in school and has nice friends. I've told him he needs to express his anger in a positive manner. Meanwhile my husband and I have told our 13-year-old that we will not tolerate this behavior. In the past I would tell them to solve it on ...

Kathy Bradley - Cornfields and Kool-Aid

With all the rain we've gotten lately, from Beryl and various other low-pressure systems, the corn may well be as high as an elephant's eye. My memories of the Grant Park Zoo, formed when I was considerably shorter than I am now, leave me a little vague as to how high that is exactly, but it is, I think, safe to assume, higher than my head and the corn is definitely that.

Kathy Bradley: In the middle -- with snakes

The first snake skin of the season appeared about six weeks ago, stretched out in a long line across the concrete of the carport in almost exactly the same spot as the one I found last year - the one I measured and looked up in the Audubon Guide to confirm its non-venomous nature. Upon spying this new one, I congratulated myself - since there was no one else there to congratulate me - on what amounted to a non-reaction, i.e., "Oh, look. A snake skin. The skin of a snake. Lying within a few feet of my back door. What a ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Treat emotional outbursts with more sleep

Q: Our 8-year-old daughter tries to manipulate us and her siblings (she is the youngest of three) with emotional outbursts and whining when things don't go her way. She is mostly a delightful, cheerful child, but this bothersome cycle flares up at least every other day. For the time being, at least, she only behaves this way at home. I think she would be embarrassed to behave this way in front of other people, including her friends.

You know you're in Fla. when ...

I turned to Julie and said, "I really know we're in Florida!" We had to take some stuff to Goodwill, and while I was talking to the young man who was processing our giveaways, I noticed a sign just back of their store almost hidden by the bushes. I thought it said, "Warning! No golfing or laughing!" That didn't seem to make a lot of sense, so I walked closer to get a better look. There was a makeshift wall that had been put up as a sort of barrier and a shirtless guy leaned out and said ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Ungrateful teen can still be corrected

Question: Our 14-year-old daughter has difficulty controlling her anger. She has extreme outbursts fairly frequently here at home - screaming, cursing and even throwing things when she doesn't get her way. She appears to have no respect for us and very little consideration for her two younger siblings. At school and in other people's homes, however, she's a model citizen. She's a straight-A student about whom all of her teachers have nothing but praise. When I describe her outbursts to friends and family, they are disbelieving. Is it too late to do anything about her anger issue?
