Fun with Family with Julie Lavender - Summer still lingers, though classes have begun 

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.

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.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Time-out rarely works for 2-year-olds

Q: When I ask him to do something, my 2-year-old screams "No!" and then swings at me. When he hits me, I firmly reprimand him and try to put him in time-out, but that only makes matters worse. I've tried ignoring his screaming, but that doesn't work. What should I do?

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Son likely untruthful about smoking habits

Q: We just discovered that our 17-year-old is using nicotine. He tells us he's been using for the past several months, smoking two to four cigarettes a day to cope with academic anxiety and relationships. He tends to be socially reserved and has been struggling with academics of late. He appears contrite and remorseful and has said, "I should never have gotten started with this stuff in the first place."

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Half a year gone already!

With school bells just around the corner, the lazy days of summer are slowly slipping away. Along those lines, over half of the days of year 2015 have slipped away, too. July 1 or 2 - according to how precise you are, and if you add that .5-day when you divide 365 in half - is officially the halfway point of the year. Have you had half of the family fun you hope to have this year? How are the family memories for the year adding up?

Kathy Bradley: In the middle -- with snakes

The first snake skin of the season appeared about six weeks ago, stretched out in a long line across the concrete of the carport in almost exactly the same spot as the one I found last year - the one I measured and looked up in the Audubon Guide to confirm its non-venomous nature. Upon spying this new one, I congratulated myself - since there was no one else there to congratulate me - on what amounted to a non-reaction, i.e., "Oh, look. A snake skin. The skin of a snake. Lying within a few feet of my back door. What a ...
