On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: 'Dread disease'

The term "dread disease" is not used much anymore. It once was common and applied to disastrous diseases that spread rapidly, caused great suffering and killed many people. A partial list includes smallpox, malaria, tuberculosis, yellow fever, polio, typhoid fever, pertussis (whooping cough) and diphtheria. Effective immunizations, antibiotics and better sanitization have wiped out some of these and brought others under control.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Commonsense rules for taking kids to restaurants

The Wall Street Journal recently interviewed Daniel Eddy, a New York City chef, on how to have a mutually successful experience with a young child in an upscale restaurant ("How to Take Your Kids Out to Eat and Actually Enjoy the Experience," July 14, 2016). The WSJ obviously thinks that being a chef qualifies one as an expert the subject; it seems to me, however, that a waitperson would have the better perspective.

Kathy Bradley: Heat to boiling

It is so hot. So hot that, by 7:30 in morning, the basil on the deck droops like little green flags on a windless day. So hot that, at 7:30 in the evening, it takes less than 10 minutes to be damp with sweat and sticky with salt and for gnats to be going after my eyes like children on parade candy.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: 'Because I said so' is a perfectly reasonable response

One of the more powerful parenting memes to emerge from the parenting revolution of the late '60s and early '70s was "Children deserve reasons." To large degree, that was a reaction to the previous parental policy of answering "Why? and "Why not?" with "Because I said so."

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: 'Why Did My Savior Come to Earth?'

In 1892, J.G. Dailey wrote the beautiful hymn with a beautiful theme: "Why Did My Savior Come to Earth?" It's a hymn that speaks simply yet eloquently of the motivation for the Gospel of Christ - the love of God. Please think briefly about the Scriptural background for this song of worship.

Kathy Bradley: Eat seed and be merry

I have tried for years to feed birds. Hung all manner of feeders from stout branches and metal shepherd's crooks, tried seed mixture blended specially - or so the bag said - for the birds I've seen hanging out at Sandhill, crumbled up stale bread and sprinkled it on the grass in an effort to Hansel-and-Gretel-like show them the way. And, with the exception of hummingbirds, I have failed miserably.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: In an adult-child power struggle, the child is in control

Q: Our 4-year-old daughter will not eat dinner, no matter what. At most, she takes a few bites of what I fix and then says she doesn't like it. This has been going on for over a year. I've taken her favorite things away from, sent her to bed early, even spanked her. Nothing has worked, and to be honest, I'm getting increasingly frustrated. I absolutely refuse to fix her a special plate. I want her to be grateful for what she has. Please give me some direction here.
