Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - 3-year-old's new favorite word is 'stupid'

Q: The first time my 3-year-old called his 4-year-old brother "stupid" I was caught off guard and probably made too big a deal over it. I told him that he is not allowed to call a person stupid because it is hurtful. He promptly began calling the dog, his cup, and everything else under the sun "stupid." He loves to call people "stoopy" or "foopid" or "poopid" (especially that one, since it combines two words he knows annoy me!) I've created a monster, haven't I? I have started ignoring the behavior, but what should I do when he ...

The first few days of a new school year have passed, but according to the calendar - and thermometer, summer days linger. While celebrating a fresh year of school, don't forget to continue making summer memories, like another trip to the ocean, one more watermelon, or sprinkler fun on a hot day. In addition to those warm-weather activities, try some of these holiday suggestions or create family ones of your own.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Germany seizes the Atlanta during WWII

Between 1802 and 1906 there were 14 schooners sailing the North Atlantic named the Atlanta. They ranged from the 45-ton vessel built in Maine in 1848 to the 104-ton ship built in Nova Scotia in 1862.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - What is real Christian discipleship?

Some people have difficulty understanding what it means to be a Christian. Does it mean going to church, praying regularly and often, and reading the Bible daily? Does living as a Christian mean following a bunch of "dos and don'ts?" I would suggest it means all these things and others as well, but there is really no place in scripture that gives a neat list of what is involved in following Jesus.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Those really were the 'good old days'

Jim Fusilli, rock and pop reviewer for The Wall Street Journal, recently opined that Rolling Stone magazine's Top 500 Songs of All Time reflected "boomer bias," pointing out that a disproportionate number of selections were from the 1960s and 1970s. That got me thinking of the many times I've been accused of idealizing 1950s child rearing. I do, in fact, often compare the manner in which children were raised in those halcyon days with today's "parenting," daring to say that the 1950s was a much better time for kids.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - How’s your memory?

A friend of mine is fond of saying that if it wasn't for his wife, he wouldn't have a past! A lot of folks - maybe most - have trouble with memory as they get older. That has certainly been my experience.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parent worries child will view punishment as unfair

Q: My 21-month-old has started hitting. Whenever he hits his 4-year-old sister, I put him in his crib until he calms down. Recently, however, his sister has started hitting back. I don't want her thinking that I go easier on him when it comes to discipline. How do I implement fair and effective punishment for the same offense for children of different ages?

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Children need consistant discipline

Q: My ex-husband has our 3-year-old son from Thursday through Saturday, every weekend. When I hand him over to his dad, he's fairly well behaved, but when I get him back, he's disrespectful and defiant. It takes a day or two to get him back on track. I work very hard to discipline consistently and it seems his dad unravels everything I accomplish.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Everyone's days are numbered — whether we like it or not

I suppose most folks who work for a living begin, at some point, to look forward to retirement. Some prefer not to quit for various reasons, but they are exceptions. One thing that causes many to want to stop working is having to go in whether they want to or not. As one fellow reportedly said, "I wouldn't mind the job as much if it just wasn't so every day!"
