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.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Confining child to his room is not 'harsh'

I occasionally receive complaints from fellow mental health professionals that my approach to discipline is excessively punitive. The most recent accused me of actually recommending that 3-year-olds spend as much as a full day in their rooms for certain offenses. Said professional was horrified. She said punishment of that sort is "harsh" and does not "send positive messages."

Kathy Bradley - Basil and invisible topography

Basil, it is said, wards off dragons. I learned this long after having started growing basil in the big clay pot on the deck. Long after having mastered the technique the witty and beautiful people of the Food Network call "chiffonade" (the process of rolling the deep green leaves into tiny cigars and slicing them into slender ribbons of fragrance). Long after having decided that, when the time comes, I'd like my casket filled with fresh-cut basil so that I can leave this world surrounded by the scent of spring.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Mother wants to help son overcome father's death

Q: My husband was killed nearly a year ago, and my 11-year-old son is still having a difficult time with it. Before the accident, he was always cheerful and social and hardly ever complained. That still describes him, most of the time, but every now and again he slips into moods where he is just the opposite. These episodes occur once every couple of weeks and last for a couple of days, on average. I took him to see a therapist a while back, but I saw no change after three months of weekly sessions, so I took him out ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Seafood eatery on stilts and CVS progress

I probably drive through the intersection of Fair Road and Zetterower Avenue at least four times a day. In doing so over the last few weeks, I have thought to myself many times, why in the world are they putting all of those telephone poles in the ground as they prepare to construct the new CVS pharmacy?
