Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Take the time to be grateful

The month of November seems to inadvertently call attention to the grateful gauge in one's heart. How's the gratitude attitude in your home? Take time this month - during family mealtime, while riding in the car, just before bedtime, while cooking dinner, while doing chores - to share blessings aloud. Talk about small blessings, huge ones and everything in between. Be sure to point out personal blessings, but talk about the good fortune of others in your circle of friends and family. Teach your kids to be thankful for others' blessings, also. Count your blessings so often this month that ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: It's a need-to-know, when-to-know thing with your children

Q: My son just turned 5 and is starting to ask various questions about parents including why some people have two parents and he only has one. About two months before he turned 2, his "donor" said he wasn't "feeling it" (his exact words) with him and didn't want to participate in his life anymore. How can I explain that to my son? My son has no recollection of this person, but his parents still visit and take him places as do two other members of his "dad's" family. I am really at a loss or how ...

On the edge

The late afternoon sun made my shadow long and narrow. It stretched out in front of me like a plumb line. I had brought with me no book, no iPod, nothing to mute the sound of my shoes crunching like cereal on the dirt that just the day before had been mud.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Child rearing has gone 'off the rails'

I am sometimes asked if I think the "parenting pendulum" is swinging back, however slowly, toward where it was 60-plus years ago or at least toward a tolerable middle point.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Iced Pumpkin Cookies tantalize the senses

Isn't it funny how powerful our senses can be? My family takes a trip to the Tennessee mountains every fall and you can't drive very far up there without seeing a pancake house. The smell alone puts me in a good mood. On a cool mountain morning, who can pass up the scent of crispy bacon, cane syrup and stacks of buttery, fluffy and warm silver dollar pancakes?

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: On the move

For most people, the post-retirement stage of life now lasts for decades. Even those who "hang it up" in their 70s may live another 10-20 years. Many who work in organizations that offer earlier retirement can and do choose to move on after 20-30 years. Preparation for retirement involves two major issues. The first is financial security. The other has to do with activity and location.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Don't subject child to unnecessary pain

Q: After two years of chemotherapy for acute lymphocytic leukemia, our 6-year-old daughter is now in remission. We've recently noticed she has difficulty focusing and staying on task. Otherwise, she is bright, happy and well-behaved. Her physician told us that chemotherapy involves neurotoxins that can cause focusing issues in children. He referred us to a neuropsychiatrist who administered a five-hour battery of tests, diagnosed ADD and prescribed an ADD drug. After reading you for years, I don't believe that an "illness" called ADD truly exists. But is chemotherapy-induced ADD a valid thing and if so, what do you ...
