Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Commitment in relationships at home is of primary importance

Syndicated author and lecturer Cal Thomas, interviewed in 1994 on C-SPAN's "Booknotes" program about his book "The Things That Matter Most," was asked about a newspaper column he wrote entitled "Children of Divorce." The title and idea for the piece, he said, came from an airline stewardess whom he asked if there was something she could do to help a little girl seated across the airplane aisle from him, crying her eyes out. She replied no, that they saw "that kind" all the time, and about all they could do was make them comfortable. When asked what she meant ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child's 'willful disobedience' typical 1-year-old behavior

Q: It seems our 1-year-old is showing willful disobedience. We tell him "no" and try to redirect, but he does the same things over and over again. The things in question include turning over and not being cooperative when I'm trying to change him, slapping us in the face and standing up during bath time. I'm trying to be creative with ways to entertain him and make things fun but am getting weary. Any advice on how I can correct him?

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - POWs help pick peanut crop in 1944

In a curious twist of events, on Aug. 10, 1944, the Bulloch Herald reported that plans were finalized for the county's new prisoner-of-war camp. The barbed-wire compound was being built on Dover Road near the city limits. At first, talks were underway to build two camps - one near Portal and one in Statesboro - but those plans were shelved and the decision was made to build a single large camp to be open until at least October 15, 1944.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Son's negativity is a type of antisocial behavior

Q: Our 7-year-old son is very negative about everything. He's a middle child, so that may have something to do with it, but everyone else in the family is very happy, positive, optimistic and so on.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Hate making speeches? Help is on the way

What I am about to assert may be a tad bit controversial, but I really believe it to be the case. Our society has become so dependent on communicating digitally (myself included) that our face-to-face communication skills overall are not as developed or as good as they used to be.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Solving one problem may lead to the disappearance others

One of the reasons - it's probably in the top three reasons, in fact - that parents fail at solving discipline problems is that they try to solve too many at once. In so doing, they scatter their disciplinary energy too thinly and end up solving none. The only thing they accomplish is getting more frustrated and more convinced that there is something about their child that renders discipline ineffective - a gene perhaps, inherited from the father (who else?), that causes a biochemical imbalance.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Statesboro takes over the Fat Cattle Show

According to the Bulloch County newspaper, local livestock breeders and the county's 4-H and FFA youth had been participating in the Savannah Fat Cattle Show as early as 1930. However, after Savannah's yards announced that the 1940 show was postponed indefinitely, White's Provisions and Cudahy Packing, the two largest meat-packing companies in the state of Georgia, requested that Statesboro's stockyards hold one of their own. The date of April 11, 1940, was chosen.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Focus on only one behavioral problem at a time

Q: We have two boys, 8 and 7. They are completely, and I mean completely, out of control. They constantly argue, fight and tattle. If they're not fighting, they're playing chaotically. Homework is a constant battle, and getting them to bed takes over an hour. To top it off, they completely ignore us when we give them instructions, and one boy's disobedience seems to make the other boy worse.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Don't buy into parenting psycho-babble

American parents have been listening to professional psycho-babblers tell them how to raise children since the late 1960s. I was in graduate school at the time, and my professors thought the babblers were geniuses, sent by some New Age divinity to correct all the egregious wrongs parents had done to children since time immemorial. Children were about to enter a Golden Age in which their opinions would not only be heard but also taken into consideration, and from an early age. And they would be allowed to express their feelings freely! And parents and teachers were going to tell them ...
