Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Perfectionism in children usually levels off with age

Q: Whenever my 4-year-old son tries something new, he becomes very frustrated if he has any difficulty at all. This happens when practicing numbers, letters or anything else I try to teach him. I tell him that he's doing fine and will do better with practice, but it's obviously not sinking in.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Allow God to get his Word in

In our world, opinions come from all over. Just ask a question, and you'll get someone to let you know what they think, and possibly what you and everyone else should think.

If you don't think so, read "Dear Abby" or "Soundoff" for a few days! The topic doesn't necessarily have to be difficult or controversial.

Kathy Bradley: Mighty Mouse, Harry Potter and the Liberty Bell

I was awakened by the lightning. Not the thunder, not the windchimes whirling dervishly, not the rain slapping against the side of the house. Not sound of the storm, but the light. Through the thin slits between the slats of the window blinds, into the flat blackness of my bedroom came slashes of white that prized their way through the blue-veined flaps of my eyelids and jerked me away from whatever dream world I had been visiting.
