Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Son must step up, fix issues with mom

Q: My ex-husband and I have pretty much fifty-fifty custody of our 15-year-old son, who has become infected with his father's disrespect for me. When he's with me, he makes it very clear that he does not want to be here. He refuses to do anything I tell him to do or accept any attempt at discipline from me, curses at me, and has even pushed me on a couple of occasions. I believe his father is a very bad influence, which is the only reason I continue to exercise my custody rights. Is there anything I can ...

ON Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Winter blues are a real malady — and many suffer from it

It's a new year and the last big holiday for a long time. A few football games remain, but they don't mean much to a lot of people and others don't get interested in basketball until March. So, the thrill of precious presents and sumptuous food is gone. What we have left is short, cold days and long dark nights. Tis the season for the winter blues, a real malady affecting many sufferers - young, old and in between.

Christmas and the red-tailed hawk

Up ahead, where the hard flatness of the highway drops off to a ragged edge, a large bird sits with his back to the white line. I am immediately cautious. Once, years ago, when I was driving through Fort Stewart on my way to court, a huge black turkey buzzard, similarly situated just off the asphalt, abruptly rose into the air and, then, equally abruptly, dove into my windshield.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Bad dreams -- Take a wait-and-see slant

Q: Our 5-year-old has suddenly started waking up with nightmares. He's not able to describe them with any clarity, however, so we don't know what the content of them is. The most he's able to tell us is that there are scary people chasing him. He began having them about a month ago and has had maybe 20 since. They usually occur about three hours after we tuck him in.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Visiting the past -- Holidays

When it comes to holidays, seniors are not the only ones who visit the past. If asked about memories most people would mention Christmas - from time spent with favorite people to the smell and taste of rich food and to presents. There is a lot of variation in the content because family tradition and location define what people do, what they treasure. Regardless of differences, many Christians and others delight in Christmas.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond — Holiday advice: Just roll with it

Q: My husband and I are looking forward to hosting our children and grandchildren over the holidays - or were.

Kathy Bradley: A different kind of Christmas tree

There are fewer and fewer leaves on the sycamore tree each day. More and more sky showing through the satin-smooth branches. Its neighbors in the backyard - two saw-tooth oaks - are disrobing at a slightly slower rate, but they, too, are approaching nakedness. When the wind picks up, the trees sway and rattle, wiggle and rustle, like a little girl in a crinoline. An irritated liveliness. A frustrated animation.
