Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Don't make your children 'big fish'

The following true story was recently related to me by a credible individual who for obvious reasons will remain forever anonymous. I pass it on because it is a quintessential example of the general intemperance of today's parenting.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Living with gratitude: It's better late than never

In Luke's "good news" historical account of Jesus' teaching and deeds, he records the incident of the healing of 10 who were lepers (chapter 17). They had begged him for healing and Jesus told them to go to the priests, the miracle taking effect as they obeyed him. The sad conclusion to the story is shared by Luke.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Parents, don't engage in arguments with your children

Q: In last week's column, you advised parents not to argue with teenagers. That's fine and dandy advice, John, but you failed to tell your readers how to stay out of or end these arguments.

I am going slowly insane. How do I make her stop?

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Out of the cloud and into the past

Mea culpa. I broke a basic rule of grammar, twice using the objective case "me" instead of the nominative case "I" in my column on the cyber-world cloud. I could claim that everybody does it (true) or that it was written in a whimsical mood (also true). However, I keep looking over my shoulder for Georgia Wilkes Hilliard (Mrs. T.H.), my high school English teacher who taught me grammar and, because she cared, much more. Although that tiny lady is long dead, she still patrols parts of my head and heart. I wish I had an opportunity to tell ...
