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.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Clothing allowance will help teach teens how to budget

Q: My two teenage daughters, 13 and 15, are constantly begging me to buy them clothes. It's become highly annoying. To stop the constant whining, I've decided to stop buying them any clothing and give them each an $800 annual clothing allowance. Should I give them the whole amount at once or give it to them on a monthly basis?

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Statesboro unemployment at alarming rate

Each month, the Georgia Department of Labor issues unemployment statistics. I generally look at Bulloch County's numbers as compared to others, but for the first time, I noticed that Statesboro is listed in the "City Labor Force Estimates" along with 30 other cities from across the state.

Parenting advice with John Rosemond - Chores give children a sense of competence, contribution

Q: Our 13-year-old daughter has been mature for her age from early on. She takes advanced classes and makes straight A's. She's also very talented musically. We think, however, that she has become a media addict. She spends entirely too much time in her room on her computer, mostly using social media. When she's not on the computer, she's using her phone to text her friends. We've asked her to limit her use, but our words are falling on deaf ears. What approach would you recommend short of cutting off the Internet and taking away ...

The myth of the terrible teen years

Q: Our son is going to be 13 next year and we're trying to be proactive about the coming storm. He's been a good kid and relatively easy to raise to this point, but we've heard the horror stories and dread what may be around the corner. Do you have any tips?

Kathy Bradley: Counting the ways...And counting what matters

Just past the shed, along what would be a fencerow - if there was a fence - the field lies flat and even. Not like a pane of glass, but like a table covered in a cloth smoothed by hands smelling of dish soap and lotion, with vague and uneven undulations that beg to be smoothed. Cut over and harrowed, it holds no sign of what grew there last year or the year before, or the decades of years before.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: What does God look like? Jesus Christ

There is a lot of skepticism about God today - as there has almost always been. Whether from atheists who deny God's existence, agnostics who aren't sure about the existence of God; or pessimists who doubt God's nature, who ask questions such as, "Where is God when bad things happen?" or, "Why does God allow evil?" These are not unusual ideas or questions, and honest questioners deserve an honest response.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Let's get dressed for heaven

The Holy Spirit seems to have loved the use of analogy in inspiring the teachers and writers of Scripture. In the New Testament, the marriage union is used to represent the relationship between Jesus and his people. The Bible's applications of this parallel can help us prepare for the coming of Christ. If we want to be followers of Christ, we need to understand that "the Way" of Christ involves a change of our nature and a change of relationship to sin.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Facts must trump parents' 'feelings'

One of the signs of these confused and confusing times we live in is that facts don't matter. What matters are feelings and opinions, which are often confused and confusing. According to another author friend, this is the primary feature of post-post-modernity.

I've asked the men in several recent audiences to raise hands if they believe moms stress out concerning their children at least five times more than dads. All the men's hands went up to general laughter.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: April showers bring the treasures of springtime

The month of April showers the observant one with a magnificent display of colors, from the fragrant wisteria blossoms creeping through the boughs of trees to the willowy stems of bright-yellow Jessamine, to the snowbells bowing their heads and wild azaleas bursting forth. Seemingly every shade of green imaginable puts on a show just for the month of April before fading and dulling as summer approaches. New life springs forth: buds and blossoms, chicks and bunnies, an empty tomb and the Resurrection.

Kathy Bradley: People, like books, must be opened to be understood

Like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, his shoulder fits into the hollow of my side and the loop of my arm conforms to the back of his neck. Exactly. Perfectly. I have to tilt my chin only slightly to rest it on the blonde head, to draw in the scent of little boy. One chair, two of us.
