Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Best interests of child is paramount

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.:End times -- Taking care of business

"In this life, two things are certain - death and taxes." This familiar saying is correct, but I can name other certainties, good and bad. The issue of taxes is constantly discussed but never solved. Death, which is more certain than taxes, is mentioned less often.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Naps not the best solution for teens

There must be some relationship between aging and the "You've got to be kidding me!" response, if I am any indication, that is. What was once occasional has become almost daily.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Common sense can equal good parenting

As regular readers of this column already know, I am completely, 100 percent opposed to children, including teenagers still living at home, being in possession of smart phones.
