Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Mother wants to help son overcome father's death

Q: My husband was killed nearly a year ago, and my 11-year-old son is still having a difficult time with it. Before the accident, he was always cheerful and social and hardly ever complained. That still describes him, most of the time, but every now and again he slips into moods where he is just the opposite. These episodes occur once every couple of weeks and last for a couple of days, on average. I took him to see a therapist a while back, but I saw no change after three months of weekly sessions, so I took him out ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Seafood eatery on stilts and CVS progress

I probably drive through the intersection of Fair Road and Zetterower Avenue at least four times a day. In doing so over the last few weeks, I have thought to myself many times, why in the world are they putting all of those telephone poles in the ground as they prepare to construct the new CVS pharmacy?

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Feelings are not as important as thoughts

When I was growing up, it was said that one should not engage in discussions of religion or politics. These days, engaging in conversation concerning how someone raises their children is just as likely to end the relationship as a discussion of their religious or political beliefs.

Kathy Bradley - A fairy tale

I step out on to the deck and take a deep breath. The breeze, brisk but mild, brings no scent of flower or bough, but only the sound of the wind chimes dangling and dancing in the white light of morning. The wet towels I have shaken out into limp flags are draped over the railings of the deck and by noon they will be dry and sun-rough.

Attachment parenting has no proven benefits to parents or children

The cover story in last week's (May 21, 2012) Time Magazine is all about "why attachment parenting drives some mothers to extremes - and how Dr. Bill Sears became their guru." That is the article's subtitle. All I can say, somewhat hopefully, is "at last."

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child's complaints disturb parents

Q: Our oldest son, age eight, has recently started saying that he has no friends, no one likes him, he's no good at anything, and so on. None of this is true, mind you. He's a good kid who does well in school. We are at a loss as to where this is coming from. His younger brothers are bothered by hearing it as well, and we worry about the effect on them. This has been going on for a couple of months now. We've tried talking to him, and we've tried ignoring him. Nothing works ...

Words written in the firmament

Every morning, I get to look into the eyes of the most beautiful lady I have ever seen. I smile at her and she says, "Good morning, Doofus!" with a smile that makes my day. All week I get to drive on some back roads - hopefully avoiding the ubiquitous deer - to be at East Georgia State and surrounded by students of all shapes and sizes and some of the nicest colleagues you'd ever want to meet. My office is on the south side and I am within spitball range of three historians, two great English professors, a first class ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Benefits of vaccines outweigh the risks

First, a full disclosure: I have been vaccinated against measles, mumps, diphtheria, rubella, whooping cough, smallpox and shingles and have had none of these maladies. At one time or another, my wife received all of these same vaccinations. Our kids were both immunized, and they have chosen to have their kids immunized. None of us has ever had an adverse reaction to a vaccination.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: 'Get the jump' on sin and prepare with God's word

Clothing stores normally display new fashions well ahead of the season. Stores here in Statesboro have had spring fashions out for several weeks, even though spring is several weeks away. An iron-clad rule for merchandisers is to "get the jump" on the buying seasons. In a spiritual context, Christians should be interested in "getting the jump" on sin, being prepared for temptation when it comes. This can be done if we'll apply some basic principles.

Editorial - Making Statesboro safer: A good start

A significant drop in the crime rate reported last week by the Statesboro Police Department is good news, indeed, and a positive sign that recent efforts at increasing cooperation between local law enforcement agencies is working. Based on data compiled by the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program, Part 1 crimes - the most serious and violent crimes - dropped 10.5 percent in 2014 compared to 2013.

No time for distractions

I was talking to a colleague Monday and ended up in a remarkable conversation that went from exercise to distractions and eventually to Christianity. Hey! I don't plan these meetings. They just seem to happen. Let's call them Providence.

Black History Month

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Celebrate the "love month"

Seems a little unreasonable that the month of February, the one that touts hearts and love and sweethearts and chocolate, is the shortest month on the calendar. But, that just means extra care and attention must be given each day to those we love. Warm up the days in February with time spent with family - bundle up and go for long walks, roast marshmallows, read books under the covers or gather in the kitchen and prepare a big pot of soup. Make every day a celebration with unique ideas or try some of the holidays below.
