Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Stepparents have authority, deserve respect

Q: What is the role of a stepparent in parenting teenage stepchildren? My 19-year-old stepson moved in with us several months ago and is disrupting our marriage. He does what he wants, when he wants, and there are no consequences. How does one deal with a child that age when he refuses to follow the rules of the house?

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - A month of gratitude for family and friends

It's that time of year when we purposefully stop to count our blessings, make mental lists of people and possessions for which we're thankful, and contemplate the order of our priorities. The month of November brings gratitude to the forefront of our minds, even though the gratitude attitude should be present year-round.

Kathy Bradley - By the waters of Babylon

Our ninth-grade literature textbook included the post-apocalyptic short story "By the Waters of Babylon" by Stephen Vincent Benet. The story follows a young boy, the son of a priest in a primitive society, as he journeys far beyond the borders his people have long honored. His long and dangerous quest takes him to the city of the gods, where he stumbles across the ruins of the great towers that once filled the city. Two of the rocks have words written on them, words he doesn't understand: UBTREAS and ASHING.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Fuzzy's Taco Shop opening on Sonny's site

I don't know about everyone else, but I have always felt that the former location of the Sonny's Barbeque on the Statesboro Bypass was a great site for a restaurant, even though it did not work out for Sonny's.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - How you can be perfect

Several years ago, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution ran an article in its sports section about the tee shot of professional golfer Tina Barrett on a par-3 hole in the Atlanta Women's Championship. The story reported that her ball went in the hole on the fly - but not all the way in. It actually buried in the soil on top of the plastic cup liner!

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Stop expecting boys to behave more like girls

Q: When my 3-and-one-half year-old son misbehaves, I generally take things away from him, and he generally responds well. One lingering problem is that he tends to react physically when he's mad at a classmate instead of talking it out and letting the teachers intervene. We all have encouraged him to use words when he's angry, but he doesn't seem to get it.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Don't accommodate child's irrational fears

Q: Because he is afraid of sharks, my fourth-grade son does not want to participate in an upcoming school field trip to an aquarium. In all other respects, he is perfectly normal. He's a great student and has lots of friends, and other parents and teachers love him. He doesn't give us or his teachers any problems at all.

Kathy Bradley - Dancing with the seeing-eye dog

When I was a girl, the only college football games on television on Saturday afternoon involved teams whose nicknames I did not understand (Sooners, Buckeyes) and whose players' names all seemed to have not enough vowels. I had no connection to Oklahoma or Ohio, Nebraska or Notre Dame, and it took me a long time to realize that I watched not for the competition itself, but for the broadcast. I watched so I could hear Keith Jackson.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Sad to see Statesboro Mall end Leon's lease

I was saddened several weeks ago when Leon Shelkoff called to tell me that his store, Leon's Menswear in the Statesboro Mall, would close at the end of 2012. Documentation provided to me by Shelkoff showed the owners of the mall - Hull Storey Gibson Companies, LLC - had called Shelkoff's lease requiring him to vacate the premises by January 6, 2013.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - 'Fearful' child knows parent means business

I recently received a letter from a grandmother who told me that her 14-year-old grandson is afraid of his single mother. When told this by her ex-husband, who was concerned, Mom said, "He'd better be!"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Emotional consequences are child's alone

Q: When I attempt to put my 3-and-one-half year-old daughter in her room for punishment, she refuses to go. I have to pick her up and take her, during which time she flails her arms, screams and kicks. My back is paying for the struggle. Her dad doesn't have this problem with her, by the way. What can I do to make her go on her own without getting physical with her?

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!"
