Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents should expect obedience, not 'cooperation'

One of the most problematic words in America's post-1960s parenting language is "cooperate."

The joy of finding your calling

A good way to get some in-depth information about a career is to go online and type in the Bureau of Labor Statistics, mess around with that database for a tad and then switch to Occupational Outlook Handbook. As they say in West Virginia, "You'll have more stuff than you can shake a stick at." I have no idea what that means, but it sounds good.

Honor in the Valley of Tears

I recently bought a book titled, "Flatwoods and Lighterknots" by James Elders, which he calls a "cultural visit to the coastal plains of Georgia."

Kathy Bradley - What be here

Not long ago, I was driving down a long, flat stretch of highway and listening on my iPod to an interview of Billy Collins, former poet laureate of the United States, he of such soul-ripping lines as, "You will always be the bread and the knife, not to mention the crystal goblet and - somehow - the wine." In the interview, he kept saying things I wanted to remember, bits and pieces of sentences that I wanted to scratch out on tiny slips of paper and stuff into a phylactery and feel bouncing on my forehead as I walked through the day ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - How does God define a Christian?

Fundamentals are important to understanding and success, regardless of the subject or activity. According to former New York Mets catcher Clarence "Choo-Choo" Coleman, Mets manager Casey Stengel, frustrated by the ineffectiveness of the team in its first year (1962), decided they needed to return to the basics. During a locker room meeting, he held up a baseball and said, "This is a baseball," to which Coleman interrupted, "Wait, you're going too fast."

No 'almost' in Christianity

Pastor Jimmy spoke about one of his favorite biblical passages. Like most of us, it's truly difficult, if not nearly impossible, to pick one over another. What causes us to select one refers to a moment in time when one unit of Scripture jumps out and says, "Here it is! This is the one you need! Go for it!" I certainly don't mean to sound flippant, but there are those days when God almost turns the pages for us and suddenly the words we needed are right in front of our eyes. The Greek gives us two remarkable ...

The marvels of the midway

I have waited an entire year for this! Julie and I came early to meet friends, Hal and Cyborg Fiscal, whose names have been changed to protect the innocent, and the parking lot is filled to capacity. Why do all these folks in town always arrive before we do? The signs clearly say, "Doors open at 6 p.m." so we are sure to get here by no later than 5:55 p.m.

Dealing with fear and crisis

While I was in Sarasota, Florida, I had the wonderful opportunity to work with runaways and develop a method of teaching non-directive counseling to the medical staff at our shelter as well as to interested nurses who wanted to attend some of my classes. The one area that seemed to be of major importance was the session on crisis. One educator wrote, "A crisis develops character." I lean to the definition, "A crisis is the internal reaction to an external event." The reason I say this is that I'm not too sure about the character part, but I do ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parenting, not genetics, shapes behavior

The "their biology makes them do it" hypothesis concerning the oft-horrid behavior of today's teens keeps on rolling along, charming parents of said teens into the comforting belief that said behavior has absolutely nothing to do with their parenting.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Tackle problems when the iron is cold

Q: Our 4-year-old daughter has a huge problem with being laughed at. She loves to be goofy and do funny things, but as soon as someone, including one of us, laughs at her, she becomes upset. She will say "Don't laugh!" or "I don't want you to laugh at me!" We explain that we aren't laughing at her but at the funny things she does. We've also told her that we laugh because we are happy and having a good time with her. Is there a different way to explain this to her so that she ...

Kathy Bradley - A parade and a pyramid

Jackson is almost 4 - that age at which he understands his separateness from other people but does not yet understand the separateness of his emotions. His will is clear and distinct, but his heart is still one with the world. Whatever is happening to him, be it highest joy or deepest sorrow, is happening to the world. That thing - the filter, the wall, the individuation of identity that will eventually teach him that this is not so, that his feelings are uniquely his and that not everyone can be trusted with them - has yet to take hold.

A memorable spring break

Last week, while most students were vacationing in such exotic faraway places like Panama Beach, Daytona Beach or Hopeulikeit, Julie and I had the wonderful opportunity to run down to Sarasota, Florida, to see our daughter and family and our middle son, George, from California. For those of you who don't know the scenario, from the day after Thanksgiving to the day after Easter, Florida fills up like a test tube full of Snowbirds who eat everything in sight, drive like maniacs and play very bad golf.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Fear is not always a bad thing

I recently came across a 1951 article my late mother saved from the Charleston (S.C.) News and Courier. Titled "Agency Offers Pointers on How Parents Can Guide Their Child's Emotional Development," it is proof that parents and professionals of three generations ago possessed a wealth of common sense, a quality that has since become most uncommon.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Celebrate spring with strawberries

Happy spring! We have survived the long, cold, dark, snowy and rainy days of winter, and I couldn't be happier to lay the power outages to rest and welcome the sunshine, watch the azaleas reveal their colors and see the earth bloom back to life. I've always loved this season, and I may be a little biased. My birthday is in April, the Masters golf tournament returns to my hometown of Augusta, Ga., and my family and I keep I-95 South hot with trips to my favorite vacation destination: St. Simons Island in the beautiful Golden Isles of ...
