Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: 'Executive function' the latest iteration of ADHD

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Why are so many seniors living in poverty?

People who are old and also poor are often noted in these columns. Well, that's proper. A lot of older people do live in poverty, and the number is growing. Where do they all come from?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Savor the season

During each new season, there are a few dishes I greatly anticipate cooking: Spring beckons salads and grilled vegetables, summer calls for hamburgers, and nothing comforts the soul in winter like warm soups and casseroles. Fall, though - fall might just be the season to beat. With the exception of the holidays, I don't think I look forward to eating more any time of the year.

Kathy Bradley: The best we can

The water is hot. It is rushing through the faucet, collecting in the sink. Bubbles that smell of green things, living things, rise like yeast. I hold my hands under the water for a moment, watch my knuckles turn red. It is dark outside the kitchen window, but inside, inside my house, it is light, miraculously light.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: The effects of 'parenting' advice on child-rearing

In 1971, a psychologist named Fitzhugh Dodson published a book titled "How to Parent." It did so well that he came out several years later with "How to Father." By 1971, Dodson was one of a handful, if that, of child-rearing traditionalists left in psychology, but his titles were quite progressive. In short order, "parent" and "parenting" became verbs, however illicit.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Kudos and quandaries

Kudos and "atta boys" to the YMCA for leasing the old Sallie Zetterower Elementary School to be used for many good programs, beginning with an exercise facility open to seniors and families. I suspect that there is plenty of good, unused exercise equipment that people would gladly donate if someone will come up with a plan to make it happen.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: 4 techniques for boosting flavor in stocks, sauces

When the air turns crisp and the evenings become dark earlier, a comforting and flavorful soup or slow-simmering stew on the stovetop is a welcome way to bring calm to a busy day's end. Served alongside a bright salad and a crusty loaf of Italian bread, the warmth and aromas of a good soup throughout the home can heal and soothe, like food for the soul.

Kathy Bradley: Of dogs and rosaries and fishing line

I have taken up the habit of walking a prescribed path along the edges of the yard. This walking is different from the other kinds of walking I do - the brisk striding to the highway and back that increases my heart rate and makes me feel I'm doing at least a little something toward maintaining my good health; the slow and purposeless ambling through the woods, looking for nothing in particular but hoping to stumble upon something astonishing.
