Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Confining child to his room is not 'harsh'

I occasionally receive complaints from fellow mental health professionals that my approach to discipline is excessively punitive. The most recent accused me of actually recommending that 3-year-olds spend as much as a full day in their rooms for certain offenses. Said professional was horrified. She said punishment of that sort is "harsh" and does not "send positive messages."

Kathy Bradley - Basil and invisible topography

Basil, it is said, wards off dragons. I learned this long after having started growing basil in the big clay pot on the deck. Long after having mastered the technique the witty and beautiful people of the Food Network call "chiffonade" (the process of rolling the deep green leaves into tiny cigars and slicing them into slender ribbons of fragrance). Long after having decided that, when the time comes, I'd like my casket filled with fresh-cut basil so that I can leave this world surrounded by the scent of spring.

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."

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Ungrateful teen can still be corrected

Question: Our 14-year-old daughter has difficulty controlling her anger. She has extreme outbursts fairly frequently here at home - screaming, cursing and even throwing things when she doesn't get her way. She appears to have no respect for us and very little consideration for her two younger siblings. At school and in other people's homes, however, she's a model citizen. She's a straight-A student about whom all of her teachers have nothing but praise. When I describe her outbursts to friends and family, they are disbelieving. Is it too late to do anything about her anger issue?

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!"
