Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Using 'The Doctor' technique helps child eat

The mother of a 4-year-old boy shared an interesting story with me the other day. At age 2, her son began chewing meat to the point where it became liquid, but would not swallow. The parents became worried and began attempting various means of persuading him to swallow. Nothing worked, which increased the parents' anxiety and, likewise, the energy they put into the swallowing project.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents should expect obedience, not 'cooperation'

The joy of finding your calling

A good way to get some in-depth information about a career is to go online and type in the Bureau of Labor Statistics, mess around with that database for a tad and then switch to Occupational Outlook Handbook. As they say in West Virginia, "You'll have more stuff than you can shake a stick at." I have no idea what that means, but it sounds good.

Kathy Bradley - What be here

Not long ago, I was driving down a long, flat stretch of highway and listening on my iPod to an interview of Billy Collins, former poet laureate of the United States, he of such soul-ripping lines as, "You will always be the bread and the knife, not to mention the crystal goblet and - somehow - the wine." In the interview, he kept saying things I wanted to remember, bits and pieces of sentences that I wanted to scratch out on tiny slips of paper and stuff into a phylactery and feel bouncing on my forehead as I walked through the day ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - How does God define a Christian?

Fundamentals are important to understanding and success, regardless of the subject or activity. According to former New York Mets catcher Clarence "Choo-Choo" Coleman, Mets manager Casey Stengel, frustrated by the ineffectiveness of the team in its first year (1962), decided they needed to return to the basics. During a locker room meeting, he held up a baseball and said, "This is a baseball," to which Coleman interrupted, "Wait, you're going too fast."

No 'almost' in Christianity

Pastor Jimmy spoke about one of his favorite biblical passages. Like most of us, it's truly difficult, if not nearly impossible, to pick one over another. What causes us to select one refers to a moment in time when one unit of Scripture jumps out and says, "Here it is! This is the one you need! Go for it!" I certainly don't mean to sound flippant, but there are those days when God almost turns the pages for us and suddenly the words we needed are right in front of our eyes. The Greek gives us two remarkable ...

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.

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.
