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

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - 'Blessed are the Peacemakers'

Who is not interested in peace in life? Who doesn't want calmness, serenity, quiet, stillness and tranquility to characterize each day? Everyone seems to want peace, but few find it easy to attain. Fewer still seem to have the ability to help others find this calmness and serenity in their lives.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Man seeks cure for child's tantrums

Q: My 4-year-old stepson still has the occasional tantrum in response to being told that he can't have or do something. His mother, who has primary custody (he's with us two days a week, generally), is very permissive, so he comes by this "honestly." When he throws a tantrum, we put him in his "tantrum place," which is a chair in the dining room. That causes his tantrum to get worse, actually, and it sometimes takes him thirty minutes or more to calm himself down to where he can get out of the chair. Is there anything we ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Kids with married parents often are better off

About forty years ago, as divorce was becoming commonplace, America began waking up to the importance of fatherhood. Up until then, the literature on child rearing was almost exclusively mother-oriented. Fathers didn't count for much. After all, Freud had pretty much ignored them, hadn't he?

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Use your imagination with GSU golf course

Kathy Bradley - Dancing with the scars

The saw-tooth oaks in the back yard, the ones that started out as knee-high, pinky-sized saplings, tower over me now. They move in the breeze like crinolined ball gowns, all hip-swaying, bodice-gripping green chiffon. Their widest branches reach out curving, almost touching, debutantes holding hands before their names are called. They look like Scarlett O'Hara at the barbecue, all insolent and saucy, dangerously aware of their beauty and its seductive power. And, because there are two, the Tarleton twins don't have to fight. There is plenty to go around.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - There are ways to help preteen set own bedtime

Q: My 12-year-old daughter thinks she's old enough to set her own bedtime. We told her that we want her in bed, lights out, by 9:30 on weeknights and 10:00 on non-school nights. This really isn't working, however, as she continues to try to stay up later. In one of your books, you describe a system for letting teenagers earn their curfew. Can we use a similar system for bedtime?
