Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Separate biting sister, brother

Q: In the last month, our 36-month-old daughter has started biting her 22-month-old brother, usually over toy struggles. It is always to get his hand to release the toy in question. I'm sorry to say that when she bites, I lose it. My husband says I should put her in her room until he gets home from work no matter what time of day the biting occurs. She is currently in her room until dad gets home. I worry that this is too much for a child her age, but then again, time-outs are a joke. Help!

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Savor sweet times in September

The sound of helmets and football pads clashing, tempered with melodious band notes in the background - the aroma of freshly mowed farmers' fields - and the sprinkling of orange and golden pumpkins and gourds at the produce stands heightens the senses to the impending shift from summer to autumn. Celebrate and treasure a new season with family members and those you love. Create lasting memories with the holidays below, or invent some new family traditions to cherish.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Bi-Lo plans expansion with all work at night

What is significant about June 3, 1992? Well, that is the day that the brand new Bi-Lo opened in the Statesboro Mall. Taking into account the fervor that our community has for its grocery stores, I thought that date might have significance for some of you.

John Bressler - God will take care of the rest of the story

One of the biggest mistakes the educational system has made over the last 30 or so years has been the removal of what was once required in every school in just about every state: driver's education. I'm sure that funding had a great deal to do with the choice and many felt that being able to manipulate a vehicle around town and on the local highways was not brain surgery and any idiot could drive well enough to get by, so why put stress on the board of education's already stretched-to-the-limit budget?

Kathy Bradley - Rosemary and time

He was late in arriving. The lunch crowd had dispersed and the restaurant was nearly empty. The blades of the ceiling fans caught the sunlight from the glass panels in the front doors and threw tiny trapezoidal flashes at the corners of my eyes. Tall plastic glasses of tea - his sweetened the right way, mine artificially so - sweated on the table between us.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Meet a modern witness of faith

In this edition of "Thinking of God," I'd like to talk a little more about the violent persecution of Christians in the modern world, in many so-called "civilized" areas. Bible readers are familiar with the stories of early Christians in the first century A. D. who paid for their faith in Jesus as the Son of God, often with their lives. Persecution has never totally ceased since then, down to the present day. Our awareness of its existence will hopefully lead to an appreciation of the importance of preparation for it in our time.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Cotton: Lifeblood of Bulloch County

With cotton fields all around and bolls about to bloom, cotton remains the lifeblood of many Bulloch Countians today, as it has been for more than a 150 years. The word "Cotton" translates to "coton" in French, and even sounds the same in Arabic: "Qutun". The cotton plant is actually a member of the Mallow family, which also includes milkweed and hollyhock.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - First Southern closing is shocking, sobering

When I started covering business news for the Statesboro Herald almost seven years ago, I never thought that I would write about a bank in Statesboro being shut down by regulators. It was surreal when I walked into First Southern's lobby on Saturday to speak with those involved with its closing and transition.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child is literally running in circles

Q: Our 12-year-old daughter seems driven to run in circles. For years now, every day, often many times a day, she will suddenly start jogging in a big circle around the family room or anywhere else in the house she is when the urge strikes. She stops when one of us tells her to stop, but a bit later she's off again! We've sent her outside to run many times, but that doesn't help either. While this may sound like a minor problem, it is so very strange and it's most certainly driving us nuts. Help!

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Let boys be boys, squash the bugs!

Q: I feel silly for asking, but what is your position on children killing bugs? I do not know if this is just 4-year-old boy behavior, but my son seems rather fascinated with bug-killing. He is, by the way, very kind with our dog and other pets. I have explained that bugs have families too and need to return to them. Is this a mountain I should die on?

Kathy Bradley - Box scores and being

A couple of weeks ago, the Braves played an extra-innings game. I was out of town and having my usual trouble falling asleep, so I stayed with them - propped up in the bright white sheets of the Holiday Inn - until after midnight, at which point I decided I should at least try to get some rest. At 2 a.m. I gave up and turned the television back on. They were still at it.

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 ...

Across the field I could hear it coming, like the rustling of a thousand pages, the whispers of a thousand lovers, the lifting of a thousand wings. The rain moved toward me across the broad, flat field, a row at a time.

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?
