Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: How to throw a Lowcountry boil party

April is my birthday month, which brings to mind one of the best parties I've ever thrown: my Lowcountry Boil Birthday Bash. It was the last year of my 20s, and I was renting a home with a lovely pond in the backyard where wild ducks, geese and Blue Herons frequented. Under the shade of the Spanish-moss covered oak trees, the setting in the coastal Georgia plains couldn't have been more fitting.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: When a child trusts, that child obeys

Q: I've read enough of your writings to know that you believe children should be obedient, that they should do what they are told. I want my children to think for themselves and to question authority, not to blindly obey simply because someone is bigger than they are. I don't want them thinking that "might makes right." What's with wanting children to be robots?

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Son will figure out the lemonade thing

Q: Our 17-year-old son is an unmotivated student. A junior in high school, he is clearly capable of making straight A's, but typically makes B's and C's. He plays on both the football and tennis teams, but is a standout at neither. He thinks kids who use drugs and play video games are "stupid" and his friends are all good kids, most of whom make better grades. He's polite, well-mannered, and respectful. Other adults rave about what an impressive kid he is. Meanwhile, we're pulling our hair out. We've talked to him many times ...

(Romans 1:4).

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Vocational education is crucial for many

During my sophomore year at Proviso West High School in Hillside, Illinois, my guidance counselor, Mr. Gusloff, refused my request to take auto shop because I was, he said, college-bound and my presence in a vocational program would take space needed by a student who was not so destined. I was disappointed, and I felt then, as I still do, that he was wrong to pigeon-hole me and limit my options, but I had no choice but to accept his decision. I never even told my parents, both of whom held Ph.D.'s. They would have only shrugged their ...

Few things bring me greater joy than entertaining family and friends around my kitchen table. Easter Sunday is such an occasion.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: End times: Last rites, rituals

I learned a lot from teachers and colleagues who were cultural anthropologists. For example, we should not dismiss the unusual ways of people from other places or our own ancestors. Established patterns of behavior are not oddities born out of ignorance or superstition but shared solutions to issues of existence. Rituals are not empty forms; they meet deep and recurring needs, personal and social.
