Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Even good kids do bad things sometimes

Q: Our 13-year-old son has had an iPod for the last three years. We've always made use of the parental restrictions to make sure that he could only access "clean" music, movies and websites.

Kathy Bradley - Fields of gold

Leaving Darien, up and over the bridge that minds the shrimp boats, I ease my foot off the accelerator and let gravity pull me down toward sea level. The marsh spreads out on either side, at once embracing the river and wooing the ocean. What had been - not many weeks earlier - a rolling lawn, an endless swath of greenest green, has gone gold. Wispy grain heads waving in the winter wind, it is now a field unto harvest.

Editorial: Gary Lewis owes the community an apology

Prior to his re-election to the District 2 seat on the Statesboro City Council in 2011, we wrote in this space that Gary Lewis continuing as a council member would be a blight on District 2 and the city of Statesboro.

God will take care of the rest

I usually don't get an inspiration from the comics page, but I just happened to glance at Arlo and Janis and looked to see a word being said between characters, "Existential!" The funny pages have gone up a notch or two since I was a kid. In fact, I really had no use for such a word -- even to show off -- until I found myself in seminary and a study group assigned to discuss the meaning of life. My first thought was to climb to the top of some mountain and find an old grizzled guy sitting in front ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - There is no single cause, or cure, for nail-biting

Q: What can be done to stop a 19-year-old from biting his fingernails? This has been an ongoing habit from early childhood. He's obviously damaging his fingers and maybe even his teeth. Verbal correction and even punishment has not stopped him. Maybe it is not that big of a deal. Please advise.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - The heavens tell us about God

Many important declarations have been made in human history - declarations that have dealt with important themes. One of the most familiar for Americans is the Declaration of Independence, which put into words and onto paper the intention of the American colonists to be free from the rule of England.

The value of a complete education

It's the beginning of a new semester and new students are asking the same old questions, "Why must I take Math, English, History and Government when I want to be a nurse, lawyer, accountant or own and manage my store? Why is there a grade system? Wouldn't it be just as meaningful to give a pass/fail? Let's get serious. I have to sit in your class and listen to your lecture. That's enough pain as it is so just pass me."

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Want to try new place to eat? Go to college

Kathy Bradley - You say you want a revolution

Once a year I find myself thrown into the crucible of one of the great debates of Protestantism. Getting the Christmas tree down out of the attic is easy, but getting it back up is something like one of the labors of Hercules. The steep stairs, the narrow opening, the weight and irregular shape of the tree itself and the law of gravity create the laboratory in which I test the doctrine of eternal security. When, at long last, both the tree and I are lying sprawled in our particular states of disarray and exhaustion on the attic floor and ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - A fail-safe way to get children to clean their plates

Well, as they say, better late than never. Two columns ago, I promised to share my fail-safe, money-back-guaranteed formula for getting kids to eat everything on their plates. Then, as if I was in my 60s or something, I forgot and wrote a column about kids who argue constantly with their parents. Consider this my mea culpa or, as the young say, "My bad."

Exactly who was Jesus Christ?

Julie gave me a wonderful book for Christmas entitled, "Who Do You Say That I Am?" A simple question that thousands of words have tried to answer. Let me give you a few examples. "He was an answer to prophecy, a promise completed. He is the Way. He was a man. He was a myth. He was a Pauline invention. He is an idea." Most of you know that the question came from the mouth of Jesus and one of the better answers - even though not as exact as we might want - came from Paul who wrote, "He is all ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Give instructions authoritatively, without explanations

Q: What suggestions do you have for disciplining a 7-year-old girl who argues with every single thing her parents say? We don't try to reason with her and we frequently say "because I said so," but she seems absolutely incapable of simply doing what we tell her to do. This is driving us to the brink of insanity! Thank you for any suggestions.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Tips for hosting your own low country boil party

Today is my 31st birthday, which brings to mind one of the best parties I've ever thrown, my Low Country Boil Birthday Bash just a few years ago. The most popular search engine terms I receive on my food blog this time of year include phrases like "shrimp boil decorating ideas" and "Southern boil party." It's no wonder so many folks are looking for complimentary side dishes and décor ideas, now that the beautiful weather has returned to us and the spring breeze beckons us outdoors. This week, I'll share some easy entertaining tips for hosting ...

Fun with Family with Julie Lavender - Enjoy the splendor of spring with family

Though there were days when we thought winter would never end, the beauty surrounding us in shades of green and blossoms of every color convinces onlookers that spring actually has arrived. Don't waste a minute of this glorious season - get outdoors and smell the flowers, run barefoot in the grass, go for late-evening walks, and fire up the grill for a family picnic. Create some new springtime celebrations for your family to enjoy, or take part in the following April holidays.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Be a parent, not a friend

Q: My 14-year-old daughter says I don't trust her because, unlike her best friend's parents, I won't allow her to stay home alone for several days while I go out of town. Her friend's parents do this at least once a month while they go to their second home, and their two teenagers - 14 and 16 - have thrown at least two raucous alcohol (and most likely sex) parties in their absence.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Tackle problems when the iron is cold

Q: Our 4-year-old daughter has a huge problem with being laughed at. She loves to be goofy and do funny things, but as soon as someone, including one of us, laughs at her, she becomes upset. She will say "Don't laugh!" or "I don't want you to laugh at me!" We explain that we aren't laughing at her but at the funny things she does. We've also told her that we laugh because we are happy and having a good time with her. Is there a different way to explain this to her so that she ...

Kathy Bradley - A parade and a pyramid

Jackson is almost 4 - that age at which he understands his separateness from other people but does not yet understand the separateness of his emotions. His will is clear and distinct, but his heart is still one with the world. Whatever is happening to him, be it highest joy or deepest sorrow, is happening to the world. That thing - the filter, the wall, the individuation of identity that will eventually teach him that this is not so, that his feelings are uniquely his and that not everyone can be trusted with them - has yet to take hold.

A memorable spring break

Last week, while most students were vacationing in such exotic faraway places like Panama Beach, Daytona Beach or Hopeulikeit, Julie and I had the wonderful opportunity to run down to Sarasota, Florida, to see our daughter and family and our middle son, George, from California. For those of you who don't know the scenario, from the day after Thanksgiving to the day after Easter, Florida fills up like a test tube full of Snowbirds who eat everything in sight, drive like maniacs and play very bad golf.
