On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Stormy weather

Hurricane Harvey produced unprecedented flooding and indescribable human misery; much of it captured in images from news cameras and cell phones. Among the most disturbing of these images were those from flooded nursing homes with aged residents trapped in wheelchairs as the water level climbed toward their shoulders. There is no final count of handicapped elderly who were rescued by armies of heroes who saved so many in Texas and Louisiana or of those who died in their homes.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Spend more time talking with, listening to God

Sometime back, I read about a man and his young son who were driving to the McDonald's restaurant in their community. As they neared their destination, they noticed an accident up ahead, involving several vehicles. The police and ambulance attendants were busy trying to sort things out and help those who were hurt. Out of concern for the injured, the father suggested to his son that they pray for the people. Then he heard his son say, very quietly, "Please God, don't let all those cars keep us from getting into McDonald's!"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Saying 'no' now can save much heartache

Responding to my recent columns on video games and smartphones, a reader asks what the problem is, thus proving that these devices can and do cause serious harm to one's cognitive hardware. He, the father of two boys and a gamer himself, in effect claims that parents are imagining things and researchers are not finding what they are finding.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Heading into an awesome autumn

Just a few days ago, Statesboro caught a glimpse of fall as the temperatures dropped and the breezes caused the trees to wave their limbs and leaves heavenward. A welcomed change from the scorching heat before, the pleasant days were just a tease of autumn as the summer sun and temperatures crept back onto the calendar. But it's coming - it really is.

High water, tender mercies

The rain lasted long enough to move the sky from dusk to hard dark, to leave the grass glistening, to flatten the ant hills out by the mailbox. Long enough for me to notice when the sound reduced itself to the monotonic drip, drip, drip from the eaves and the cones streaming from the floodlights on the corners of the house went from pale and thick to bright and golden. Just long enough to make the night an invitation.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Time to re-educate child and parent

Q: I have taught my 4-year-old son that he is the boss. I have given him too many choices and too many explanations. I've allowed him to manipulate, disobey and disrespect me. Ever since I began devouring your podcasts and newspaper columns, however, my eyes have been opened. It's been a few weeks since I started putting your old-school principles into practice and I've made some progress, but I'm still getting into lots of power struggles. After four years of not being the boss, how do I now turn this ship around? I'm finding that ...

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Humanity is not negotiable

"If we are following Christ literally, then nobody's humanity is up for grabs. Nobody. This is nonnegotiable." --The Rev. Jen Hatmaker, Time magazine, August 28, 2017, page 60. However, the following definitions show that dehumanization is as current as it is ages old.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Let your kid admit his own guilt

Q: A few months after he got his driver's license, we found a bag of marijuana in our 16-year-old son's car. He swore it wasn't his and that he didn't know whose it was and that he's never used pot, but then he failed to pass a drug test. Now he admits that he's smoked pot, but he says he only tried it once and didn't like it. He still maintains that the pot we found in the glove box of his car belonged to someone else, but he still maintains that he ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Be persistent in seeking Jesus' healing touch

Twin girls, only a few hours old, were lying in their individual hospital incubators. Something was terribly wrong with one of them, and she wasn't expected to live. A nurse placed the babies together in one incubator. The healthy baby threw an arm over her sister's upper torso, either intentionally or by chance. The smaller baby's heart rate stabilized and her temperature rose to normal. Some said, "That's astonishing!"
