Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child's complaints disturb parents

Q: Our oldest son, age eight, has recently started saying that he has no friends, no one likes him, he's no good at anything, and so on. None of this is true, mind you. He's a good kid who does well in school. We are at a loss as to where this is coming from. His younger brothers are bothered by hearing it as well, and we worry about the effect on them. This has been going on for a couple of months now. We've tried talking to him, and we've tried ignoring him. Nothing works ...

Kathy Bradley - Bye, bye, birdie

A couple of weeks ago I stopped for the mail and, before I could get my hand into the box, heard the distinct sounds of baby birds. I quickly drew my hand back, suspecting that I might be in the cross-hairs of the mama somewhere close by. A few seconds went by without the appearance of an angry female of the avian variety, and I reached back in, this time seeing two baby birds sprawled across the stack of sale papers and catalogs.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Market District development chugs along

I can't help it. About every six months, I have to check into the Market District. I still think that was one of the shrewdest moves I have seen.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - 'Blessed are the Peacemakers'

Who is not interested in peace in life? Who doesn't want calmness, serenity, quiet, stillness and tranquility to characterize each day? Everyone seems to want peace, but few find it easy to attain. Fewer still seem to have the ability to help others find this calmness and serenity in their lives.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Man seeks cure for child's tantrums

Q: My 4-year-old stepson still has the occasional tantrum in response to being told that he can't have or do something. His mother, who has primary custody (he's with us two days a week, generally), is very permissive, so he comes by this "honestly." When he throws a tantrum, we put him in his "tantrum place," which is a chair in the dining room. That causes his tantrum to get worse, actually, and it sometimes takes him thirty minutes or more to calm himself down to where he can get out of the chair. Is there anything we ...

A little homework for Easter

Last Sunday, every church throughout the world celebrated Palm Sunday in sermon, music and pageantry. Allow me to use what I consider to be the first of the Synoptic Gospels, Mark, and read about the man Jesus, who many thought just might be the long-awaited Messiah. First off, let's try to envision Jesus' entry into Jerusalem from a point of view that most likely existed with at least three succinct and different groups: There were those who claimed that Jesus was the Messiah, those who were the locals and who may have recalled an event which took place nearly ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Shy, independent children are normal

Q: Our 7-year-old is very shy. He doesn't enjoy the sort of social activities, including sports, that other kids his age are generally involved in and would rather play alone. He has one friend, who is also quite shy. His mother and I have conspired to arrange weekly play dates, but whereas the boys get along fine, both kids sometimes balk at cooperating with them. My son occasionally tells me he'd rather read or play alone than play with this other boy. When I ask why, he tells me he "just would." His school counselor has recommended that ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Encourage your child's flights of fancy

Today's parents tend to worry about all manner of things that do not deserve second thoughts. Imaginary friends, for example. I've been asked many times by mothers if they should worry that their preschoolers have imaginary friends they seem to think - and in some cases even insist - are real.

Kathy Bradley: Flirting with the sunrise

The color of this early morning in not-quite spring is liquid lavender, is pearly pink, is slightly silver in the way it glints and glows. The sky and the fields and everything in them are shaded as though tinted by a crayon unwrapped and swiped across the countryside with its long barrel, the sharp tip forgotten. Outlines and details are unimportant to the day as it languorously wakens.
