Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Raise children to make the world a better place

I recently enjoyed the privilege of seeing and hearing radio talk-show host Dennis Prager speak on the topic of happiness. He only spoke for 20 minutes, but he said more in that short span than most talk-show people are able to say in two hours.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Summertime, summertime — let the fun times begin

School's out for summer; let playtime begin. Hopefully your family has a list - mental or written - of lots and lots of fun activities to accomplish before the school bell chimes again. Stay up past bedtime and have a kids' movie marathon, build a fort in the den and read a chapter book together, chase fireflies, try new recipes, find a new trail for hiking, or go blueberry picking. Watch a thunderstorm from the safety of the family room, step in puddles with rainboots and tie streamers on the handlebars and have a bike parade. Find unique ways to celebrate ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Although world is more complex, parents need not stress

"Puzzled Grandma in the South" recently wrote to "Dear Abby" asking, "Why is there so much angst today over raising children, especially in young mothers?" Grandma has observed that moms of her generation (baby boomers) did not agonize over raising kids, and neither did her mother or grandmother. She also rightly points out that today's moms seem to lean a lot on expert advice, which she thinks is "a bunch of nonsense." Ironically, I agree.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Help from unexpected friends

Kathy Bradley: To fight a mockingbird

On the slope of the hill, just where the field ends and the woods begin, where the ditch on either side of the road deepens, I stopped to listen. I'd been walking into the warm silence of mid-morning, absorbing the stillness and the pulse of soil awaiting seed, when a sudden rush of shrieking and squawking burst from among the pine trees and scrub oaks to my right. I stopped short, just in time to see the mockingbird swoop down toward the ground about 6 feet ahead of me, followed closely by a pileated woodpecker.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Who has the spiritual authority in your life?

In many - perhaps most - families, parents and children often find themselves in conflict, sometimes seriously so. It's normal for children, often beginning at a very young age, to challenge the authority of those who raise them. But everyone benefits when children learn early on that Mom and Dad, generally speaking, have the final say in things that affect the individuals in the family.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Homeschooled children shouldn't be micromanaged

Q: I homeschool my three children, ages are 8, 6 and 5. The older two have a very poor attitude about doing schoolwork, especially math, and the younger one is starting to pick up on it. Their poor attitudes make the lessons take longer, and they complain and cry about finishing their assignments.
