Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Son's behavior changes could point to video game addiction

Q: My 6-year-old daughter has recently learned to say, "You're hurting my feelings." This is part of her school's anti-bullying program. The problem is, she's now saying it to me when I discipline her. What should I say to her?

Religious liberties in our schools

As a member of our community, an actively involved parent of a public school student, and a long-time advocate for quality education, I feel a responsibility to comment on the ongoing religious liberties issue. I do believe this issue is drawing to a close and we as a community will be able to move forward; however, there are a few clarifications that I believe need to be made.

Knowing the face of Christmas

I owe the idea for this article to Pastor Wes, and I hope he feels I did a worthy job.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - The younger the child, the easier the toilet training

Q: My 18-month-old kicks me and hits me when I try to change his diaper. He doesn't do this for his father or grandparents. Should I hold his legs down until he gives up, or will this worsen things?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - A Christmas family tradition at The Old Home Place

At the end of a long dirt driveway lined by 23-year-old pine trees in Middle Georgia sits The Old Home Place, where my family has celebrated "The Cookin' " each Christmas for more than 30 years.

Does God make mistakes?

I was listening to PBS as I drove home and listened to a program that sounded like a science fiction presentation. It seems that some scientists are beginning to experiment with the brain and finding out truly peculiar results from their testing and sort of speculating what all this study could mean for future generations. For instance, by stimulating certain parts, people who felt depressed or moody could quickly experience a memory - real or imagined - that contained long-lost happy emotions which changed their outlook on life from sad to glad. After the electronic pulse, or whatever it was, was discontinued ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Thanks, Al, for making me look so good

When I decided to run for mayor this past August, I knew my relationship with the Statesboro Herald would change and it did. For almost 10 years, I had written an "Inside Bulloch Business" column each week as well as a business news story.

The real reason for Christmas

Tis' the end of Brown Thursday, Black Friday, and now comes the rush to buy whatever's left for the Christmas morning debacle of boxes of ties and/or underwear for Dad, pots and pans for Mom and electronic gizmos for the kids. There is also a soon-to-arrive thank you card from Visa asking that you pay as you go just in case you forgot.

Making a difference, then and now

I really fell in love with Thanksgiving in the first grade. The teacher told us to put away our books and listen. She began telling us a story, using cutouts and maps, about some people called Pilgrims who wore black clothing trimmed in white, lived in log cabins and ate lots of food on a day we would soon celebrate as "Thanksgiving." I thought that Thanksgiving was a day when the family ate turkey, dressing, pumpkin pie and I would fall asleep in the living room while the old people talked a lot. Later on, when I was a teenager ...

God hears your cries for help

Last week, Julie and I drove to our favorite nursery - which I call the grass and tree place - to pick up some Calliope plants to block the neighbor's view of our garage door. Notice how I used flower and grass language because my wife doesn't think I have any idea what the difference is between flowers and grasses. Also notice I did not show off my extensive knowledge of the Calvin cycle of enzyme-catalyzed photosynthesis occurring in chloroplasts and other stuff. You folks think John Calvin was just a second-rate theologian? I laugh you to scorn.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Discipline requires authoritative speech, body language

Q: My 5-year-old son is an only child who I homeschool. He talks back, argues and generally wears me down. I need help getting to him to realize that no is no, that I mean what I say. I know I'm the problem. Help!

Kathy Bradley - Bringing the band

On the other side of the state, my mobile phone produced the bell chime that sounds like an elevator reaching its destination. A friend had sent me a message that read, "Y'all might want to call in reinforcements, there's gonna be some property destroyed in the Boro tonight!"

Fun with Family with Julie Lavender - Enjoy the splendor of spring with family

Though there were days when we thought winter would never end, the beauty surrounding us in shades of green and blossoms of every color convinces onlookers that spring actually has arrived. Don't waste a minute of this glorious season - get outdoors and smell the flowers, run barefoot in the grass, go for late-evening walks, and fire up the grill for a family picnic. Create some new springtime celebrations for your family to enjoy, or take part in the following April holidays.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Be a parent, not a friend

Q: My 14-year-old daughter says I don't trust her because, unlike her best friend's parents, I won't allow her to stay home alone for several days while I go out of town. Her friend's parents do this at least once a month while they go to their second home, and their two teenagers - 14 and 16 - have thrown at least two raucous alcohol (and most likely sex) parties in their absence.

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 ...
