Living with Children with John Rosemond: A different solution to closet monsters

Q: About six months ago, our four-year old daughter began complaining of being afraid to be alone at bedtime. Upon questioning, she told us she was afraid of monsters in her closet and under her bed. We were unable to convince her otherwise. In fact, the more we talked to her, the more her fears grew to the point where she was becoming nearly hysterical at bedtime. As a result, I began staying with her until she fell asleep. The problem is that she wants to talk and doesn't end up falling asleep until 10 or 11 o'clock ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Those who receive God's comfort must comfort others

"Comfort." It's a nice word, bringing up thoughts of well-being, security and ease. It was a word that reminded the apostle Paul of his relationship with God. Writing to the Corinthian church, he noted that God "comforts us in all our affliction ... (2 Cor. 1:4). Finishing his thought, he added, "... so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God." God expects those whom he has comforted to use their opportunities to help others.

Kathy Bradley: Me and Gloria Gaynor

This is what I heard. This is what I heard this morning. This is what I heard this morning when I walked outside into sunshine. When I walked outside into air that was warm and slightly cloying. This is what I heard: the songs of at least six different birds rising up gently from the branch like the voice of a mother waking her sleeping child. This is what I heard: the drip drip drip of water off the roof onto the curved mouth of the gutter, a message delivered by tom-tom.

Guest column: Georgians with developmental disabilities deserve jobs, too

For individuals with developmental disabilities, the typical choices after finishing high school - getting a job or going to college - are difficult, if not impossible. There are thousands of Georgians with developmental disabilities, and the unemployment rate for that community is close to 87 percent.

Dealing with the enemies of Israel

It has taken me three days to sit in front of my computer and start this article. The difficulty began when I sat down at my desk and glanced over at my open Bible. I don't even remember turning to Isaiah, but what was really disturbing was that I was staring at chapter 34 and I began to read, "Draw near, O nations, to hear, and listen, O peoples! For the Lord is angry with His enemies, furious, and has doomed them ... the mountains will flow with their blood. For the Lord has a day of vengeance on behalf ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Why teen mental health has worsened

In the 1960s, child and teen mental health and behavior problems began an alarming rise that has continued to the present. In 1970, one of my grad school professors proposed that this trend could be explained with the flight-or-fight principle (i.e. in response to perceived threat, a person is inclined to either flee or stand and fight).

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: March is a month of merriment

With the rainbow of colors on recent weather maps and the shuttered doors of schools just hours north of here, it's difficult to imagine that March pledges shamrocks and springtime. But promise it does, at least on the calendar. Watch for leprechauns, greenery and Irish dances the first part of the month and delight in the early spring offerings toward the end. Look for every shade of green imaginable when new buds and fresh leaves make their appearances after a long winter's nap. Enjoy the hues and colors of springtime with lawns that awaken and trees and flowers ...

Kathy Bradley: A pocketful of pennies

It has become an annual trip. A pilgrimage. And though we don't remove our shoes or crawl on our knees or touch our foreheads to the ground, we probably should. The spot is that sacred.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Son's anxiety caused by panic attacks

Q: My 13-year-old son has developed overwhelming anxiety about going to school. This began a year ago, but has gotten steadily worse since then. At this point he fights me every morning about going to school, and even if I can persuade him to get in the car, he won't get out. If I try to force him, he becomes nearly hysterical. I'm a stay-at-home mom, so there have been many days this year when I've simply taken him back home. His principal and everyone at the school say he's fine once he's in the ...

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!"
