Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parental anxiety over toilet training leads to pushback

Q: We began toilet training our daughter when she was 21 months old. Within 10 days, she was using the toilet consistently for Number One. She now wears underwear 24/7 because she doesn't even wet her bed.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Too much help can lead to needy kids, stressed mothers

I recently told a group of 50 teachers, "Raise your hand if you agree that when a child comes to an adult asking for help with an academic problem, the adult should help."

Kathy Bradley - Traffic signs

About halfway between the communities of Adabelle and Excelsior is a creek bridge. On the Bulloch County side of the bridge, the county-maintained highway is known as Adabelle Road. On the Candler County side, it is called Dutch Ford Road, though most of us who live nearby refer to it simply as the road to Excelsior. The two-lane highway, called by whatever nomenclature one chooses, has long been an obstacle course of potholes, wash-out and loose gravel. The fact that the population of deer in the neighborhood vastly outnumbers the population of people adds to the overall perilous nature of ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents should take time to nurture their marriage

"How can my spouse and I get on the same page where the kids are concerned?" is both the most difficult question parents ask me and the most important. It is the most difficult because each of the parents in question thinks the problem lies with the other, and as long as they cling to that security blanket, the problem cannot be solved. It is the most important question because the strength of a family, and therefore the well-being of its children, depends fundamentally on the parents being in a state of unity.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Zucchini galore

I've often thought farmers and gardeners must be the most creative chefs. They constantly face the challenge of coming up with new ways to eat copious amounts of the season's harvest. Take a walk at our local farmers market or in any grocery store's produce department this time of year and you'll find zucchini in abundance. A green summer squash with mild flavor, zucchini is in season from May to October in Georgia.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Apostle Paul a model of commitment

In "Legacy of a Pack Rat," Ruth Bell Graham tells of a musician who lived in a land where "God's music" was not allowed to be played. Every day, he took out his copy of Handel's "Messiah" and placed it on the dining room table. Then, on the table, his fingers silently played through the entire score.

Kathy Bradley - Remembering moonlight

Sounding like Goethe on his deathbed, I handed the contractor the blueprints for what would become Sandhill and instructed, "Light, that's what I want - as much as possible."

Southeast Bulloch choral concert a delight

It was pure accident that I began singing in choral groups. In my first year of high school - we started in the tenth grade back then - I was taking art appreciation when a good friend said, "John! There's a bunch of kids singing upstairs. You like to sing and all you have to do is to sit, sing and get an "A!"

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Entertain this summer with simple foods, big flavor

It may be springtime, but in true Statesboro fashion, we've already had several 90-degree days. When it's hot outside, I am much more inclined to eat lighter foods such as fresh fruit, green salads and grilled meats - partly because they're healthier options, but mostly because it's swimsuit season.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Do not allow fear to interfere with good parenting

Q: For the first five years of her life, it was just me and my now 13-year-old daughter. I didn't have a clue as to what I was doing. I wasn't consistent; I didn't hold her accountable; I was an enabler. Her behavior toward me became increasingly disrespectful. My second husband tried to open my eyes, but I was in complete denial.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - What did God have in mind for the family?

It has been suggested that God established three great "institutions" for our benefit - family, church and civil government. As he planned them, they are without any defects. When problems come, it is because of man's failings.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Five-year-old wants to touch his cousin

Q: Our 5-year-old grandson sees his 5-year-old female first cousin from time to time. After they play for a while, he tells her he wants to "touch" her. This has happened twice in recent months. Her parents are very upset, but our grandson's parents read lots of parenting books and seem to think it's no big deal. Your thoughts on this matter?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - My moment with the queen of Southern cuisine

As many of you may know, Paula Deen recently held two live shows in Savannah as part of her "Paula Deen LIVE!" tour. I had made plans to attend long before her team reached out to me in late July, and I wouldn't in my wildest dreams have imagined the events that followed.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Our victories come from God

Somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 years or so ago (not long after Carole and I moved from Arkansas to Statesboro), I learned of an opportunity to tour a WWII vintage U.S. Army Air Force B-17 bomber on display at the Statesboro airport. The study of history has been a favorite pursuit of mine since college, so I jumped at the chance to actually see this famous aircraft, "up close and personal!"
