Living with Children with John Rosemond: Helicopter parenting helps no one

A second-grade teacher writes: "I teach in a very competitive school where parents have developed a 'mob mentality' for bullying administrators and teachers. They have gone beyond helicopter parenting to Apache Blackhawk parenting."

Kathy Bradley: Lennon and McCartney and Grannie

A flock of blackbirds covers the field. Two hundred, maybe. Silent and still before rising, as though at the lift of some unseen maestro's baton, into the air in one loud flap like a bleached sheet on a clothesline. I watch and listen and shiver. Blackbirds. Sign of cold weather.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Pull-ups are permissible in special cases

Q: My 23-month-old son does well with potty training when we're at home. We use a "potty bell" and he goes every 90 minutes or so. When we're away from home, however, he seems clueless. He pees in his car seat about 5 minutes into a trip and simply will not use a potty anywhere but at our home or at my mother's (she watches him one day a week at her place). Would pull-ups be a bad thing to use when we leave the house?

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Can you sleep when the wind blows?

Mr. Jones, the owner of a small farm on the coast, advertised for a hired hand. But people were hesitant about working on farms in the area out of fear of the terribly destructive storms that so often threatened buildings, crops and the lives of both people and animals. Consequently, the farmer found it almost impossible to hire anyone to help him with the work.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Living the dream through cupcakes and coffee

It's mid-morning on a sunny Saturday, after a satisfying brunch and visit to my local farmers' market. Dressed completely casually with nowhere to be, I stroll along East Main Street in downtown Statesboro to find an inviting sidewalk chalkboard and the doors open wide at CAKE Bakery and Cool Beanz Espresso Bar. Upon entering, I discover much more than cupcakes and caffeine. Here two kindred spirits - one culinary artist and one head coffee geek - have joined forces to make their dreams a reality.

Column: Impacts of childhood obesity

Many people are uncomfortable talking about childhood obesity, especially when it comes to their own children. However, ignoring it, or thinking a child will slim down as he or she grows taller, can make things worse.

Column: It's time for action

There's been a lot of talk lately about what the Statesboro City Council is going to do about the terrible tragedy that happened at Rude Rudy's a couple of weeks ago. And we've heard a lot of opinions on what the city "should do" and rampant speculation as to why the council won't do it.

Living with Children with John Rosemond - It's your child's homework, not yours

Q: I homeschooled my oldest, an 8-year-old boy, until this year. He started third grade in public school in August. As a homeschooling mom, I was not a micromanager and don't want to become one now, but the school virtually insists that parents help with homework. I want him to be independent. What are your thoughts on this?

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - He only did it once: the sacrifice of Jesus

According to what may be an apocryphal story, shared by my friend Alan Smith, two visitors were touring the U. S. Naval facility in Annapolis, Maryland. As they followed the tour guide, they noticed several students on their hands and knees examining a courtyard with pencils and clipboards in hand.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: September splendor awaits those with patience

Sweltering temperatures soaring in the 90-degree range makes one wonder if autumn will ever return below the Mason-Dixon line, but with prayers and patience, Southerners too will soon enjoy the splendor of September fall days. Beautiful hues of orange and yellow and red lay hidden until the shorter days of September.

Editorial - Making Statesboro safer: A good start

A significant drop in the crime rate reported last week by the Statesboro Police Department is good news, indeed, and a positive sign that recent efforts at increasing cooperation between local law enforcement agencies is working. Based on data compiled by the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program, Part 1 crimes - the most serious and violent crimes - dropped 10.5 percent in 2014 compared to 2013.

No time for distractions

I was talking to a colleague Monday and ended up in a remarkable conversation that went from exercise to distractions and eventually to Christianity. Hey! I don't plan these meetings. They just seem to happen. Let's call them Providence.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Celebrate the "love month"

Seems a little unreasonable that the month of February, the one that touts hearts and love and sweethearts and chocolate, is the shortest month on the calendar. But, that just means extra care and attention must be given each day to those we love. Warm up the days in February with time spent with family - bundle up and go for long walks, roast marshmallows, read books under the covers or gather in the kitchen and prepare a big pot of soup. Make every day a celebration with unique ideas or try some of the holidays below.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: These parents may need some therapy

My column of a few weeks back in which I described real-life parenting scenarios that qualified the parents in question for a diagnosis of "just plain nuts" was a big hit. Since it ran, readers have sent me numerous examples of parents who indeed seem to qualify as JPN and be in need, therefore, of You Ought to be Ashamed of Yourself Therapy.

Singing songs of the good news

About four years ago, comedian Steve Martin, who is also one great banjo player, wrote an interesting piece of music, "Atheists don't have no songs." Yes, I know that's a double negative. According to Martin, their hymnbook is only one page and if the name of God is there, it's spelled with a lower case "g." Go figure.
