Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - 'Fearful' child knows parent means business

I recently received a letter from a grandmother who told me that her 14-year-old grandson is afraid of his single mother. When told this by her ex-husband, who was concerned, Mom said, "He'd better be!"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Emotional consequences are child's alone

Q: When I attempt to put my 3-and-one-half year-old daughter in her room for punishment, she refuses to go. I have to pick her up and take her, during which time she flails her arms, screams and kicks. My back is paying for the struggle. Her dad doesn't have this problem with her, by the way. What can I do to make her go on her own without getting physical with her?

Fun with Family with Julie Lavender - Enjoy autumn with all 5 senses

Have you picked a couple of trees to watch as autumn progresses? Search the woods for fall's glorious shades of oranges, reds and yellows, and celebrate everything the season brings, from football games to festivals and carnivals to mornings that require jackets to costumes and candy to sunflowers and freshly mowed fields. Additionally, celebrate these holidays with those you love, or make up a few of your own.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child's manners reflect character

Driving in Southern California recently, listening to talk radio, I heard a commercial for a Christian private school. The spokesperson went on and on about their very high test scores, the very high percentage of their students who go to top-rated universities, and other very high academic statistics. Send your child to Veryhighscore Academy! We will bring out the best in your child!

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - It's time for moms to take back their power

One of the greatest ironies of our time: Today's women have inherited from their mothers the freedom to claim authority in the military, corporations, churches, the professions, politics and higher education, but have been persuaded, largely by their own gender, to all but completely abdicate their authority over their children.

Kathy Bradley - A few good boys

There are five of us around the table. The four children are seated; I am standing, walking from end to end, looking over their shoulders at their work. Strung along the center of the table are bottles of glue, pairs of scissors and stacks of magazines. In front of each child is a single piece of white paper. The exercise I've given them in this class for young writers is to make a collage representing an object each of them has drawn from a bag. One of the girls has drawn a broken seashell, the other girl a ceramic ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - An ice cream treat and more at 'dog resort'

I think the saying - "It's a dog's world" - may be taking on added meaning with the opening of the South Paws Dog Resort on Northside Drive. From special doggie ice cream at night, to playing during the day, pet owners can now take their dogs for doggie day care, while their pet parents are working.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Some kids' 'problems' are normal behaviors

I estimate that one-fourth of the questions parents ask me involve issues or behaviors that merit little if any concern. Some of the "problems" in question are normal to certain stages of development. Others are nothing more than little glitches that will resolve themselves in time (and might develop into real problems if people respond to them as such). And some are reflections of personality (or temperament), which is inborn and therefore fairly fixed, although not immutable. These include things like shyness, which most shy people figure out how to successfully compensate for by early adulthood. Here's a short ...

On Art with Lynn Lily - Sculptor a master of metal

Of course, you already know Pat Steadman's sculpture. Oh, yes, you do. The imposing bronze bust of coach Erk Russell at Georgia Southern's Paulson Stadium is Steadman's "Game Day." And, in fact, a small gem of a replica is part of "Pat Steadman: A Retrospective" on exhibit at the Averitt Center through Saturday. But if that single piece is all you know about the man, you're missing a much bigger story.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: God is always a good, wise choice

Years ago, Lindell Doty, a retired preacher and friend of mine now living in Florida, suggested that everybody has choices to make. Now, making decisions can be hard - sometimes so hard that we delay them as long as possible.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Encourage your child's flights of fancy

Today's parents tend to worry about all manner of things that do not deserve second thoughts. Imaginary friends, for example. I've been asked many times by mothers if they should worry that their preschoolers have imaginary friends they seem to think - and in some cases even insist - are real.

Kathy Bradley: Flirting with the sunrise

The color of this early morning in not-quite spring is liquid lavender, is pearly pink, is slightly silver in the way it glints and glows. The sky and the fields and everything in them are shaded as though tinted by a crayon unwrapped and swiped across the countryside with its long barrel, the sharp tip forgotten. Outlines and details are unimportant to the day as it languorously wakens.
