Living with Children with John Rosemond: A brief list of today's parenting problems

From the I'm Sorry to Have to Tell You Department: Parents who say they want to raise kids who "think for themselves" are not being exactly truthful. It's a nice and very democratic thing to say, for sure, but let's face it, folks: You want your kids to think like you do. For example: If you're a liberal, you want your kids to be liberals when they grow up. Right? Right! The same is true of conservatives, libertarians, people of faith, people of no faith and people with COEXIST bumper stickers on their cars. Furthermore, that ...

Where do you fit in the scheme?

It's last Monday morning and according to the weather report - and somebody got it right this time - it's raining very hard with thunder and lightning, and it's nice to be inside looking out. This afternoon, we have a 100 percent chance of very heavy rain, high winds and a get-ready-to-hunker-down warning, which I will do my best to follow the directions. One of my colleagues has just told me we're not supposed to have this kind of stuff this late in the year. Since he teaches Algebra, what does he know? He knows this: it is ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Gratitude is timeless for Christians

Thanksgiving is more than a single day - it is an attitude about everything in life. Life is made up of past, present and future. The perspective we have on each helps determine our happiness and effectiveness. So, Christians can be grateful for ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: The understated power of "I told you so"

Q: My 6-year-old son argues with me about everything I tell him to do. He comes up with reason after reason why he shouldn't have to or can't, why it's unfair or why, at the least, I should help him. I think he's got some argument disorder. Is there such a thing? In any case, it's beginning to drive me nuts, up a wall, and over the edge. Is there a solution?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Keepin' it classic with Thanksgiving traditions

When it comes to Thanksgiving, I'm a traditionalist at heart. So when I hear modern day chefs and food personalities begin to talk about "turning up the volume on old classics" and "reinventing grandma's recipes," the first thought that comes to mind is the old philosophy, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." On the other hand, I'm always open to trying new dishes and getting creative in the kitchen, but Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without a few classic staples like pumpkin pie, roasted turkey and cranberry sauce from the can (and football and ...

We can choose the gift of God

Almost all old timers - I do not mean Alzheimer's or me - remember when they had a class where the teacher brought up a philosophical exercise about choices. Usually, it had to do with a sinking ship, one lifeboat and too many survivors in shark-filled waters.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Over-involved parents ruin everything

Why are young adult children emancipating so much later than they did in 1970, when the average age of male emancipation (independent living, paying one's own bills) was 21? Why do significant numbers of college professors and even employers complain about parents of young adult students/employees confronting them over, respectively, bad grades and workplace issues? Why have reduced class sizes and increased per-pupil expenditures not resulted in higher academic achievement levels? Why is the mental health of today's kids so poor when compared with that of children in the 1960s and before? Why have school phobia, test ...

Kathy Bradley: The light in autumn

There are so many ways to measure the movement of the year. The temperature of the breeze that comes wafting across the field, the color of the vegetation along the fence rows, the birdsong or lack thereof. Each of them in one way or another announces the passage of time from one season to the next. But breezes and briars and birds can be deceptive. Wet summer winds can demand a sweater. Rain can make an autumn ditch run like spring. Birds can get confused.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Let us praise God openly and naturally

David, the second king of God's special people, Israel, wrote a psalm of praise for his deliverance from his enemies, including Saul, the ruler he had succeeded: "For this I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations, and sing praises to your name" (2 Samuel 22:50).

Living with Children with John Rosemond: The evils of spanking? Well, not so much.

It's time once again for me to clarify my position on spanking. I arrived at this reluctant conclusion because twice in the last week, I've been informed that I believe in it - which is not exactly true.

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!"
