Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Don't let ex's shortfalls influence your parenting

Q: We are a struggling blended family. My husband has three children (ages 7, 12 and 17) from a previous marriage. Their mother's home is focused on the easiest way of parenting. She allows unlimited electronics, showers the kids with presents and does not discipline effectively at all. It's obvious she wants to be the kids' friend.

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.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: 'Paradoxical intention' can help control thumb-sucking

Q: Our 7-year-old son has sucked his thumb forever, more or less constantly. He has recently switched to sucking his index finger and putting his right hand down the back of his pants at the same time. This is driving us crazy!!!

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Sick children should only be exposed to calming media

Q: My 6-year-old daughter watched too many episodes of a certain TV show when she was sick, and now she doesn't want to go to sleep at night because she is having scary thoughts related to the show. She will come out of her room again and again complaining of these thoughts - mostly before she has gone to sleep, rarely in the middle of the night - and want to be tucked back in. How would you recommend handling this?

Kathy Bradley - When the mental smoke clears

It is just after sundown. The yellow moon hovers in the navy blue sky and beneath it, far beneath it, where the sky meets the earth at a seam, a line of bright orange flames simmers. I stand on the front porch and watch a frothy lather of smoke floating off to the north.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr. - Special health issues

In general, aging people are not more "sickly" than the rest of the population. In fact, bouts with typical infectious diseases over the years have armed many of them with protective antibodies. Children with less buffered immune systems and regular exposure to "bugs" through day care centers, recreation programs, dancing classes, school, etc., typically do a lot more sniffing, sneezing, coughing and wheezing than their grandparents. This is partly offset by the elders' years of exposure to pollen and molds, which saddles some of them with allergies that produce the same effects.

Kathy Bradley: Not-so-great expectations

One year it was biscuits. One year it was list-making. The objects of my Lenten fasts have ranged from the concrete and indulgent to the intangible and neurotic. On Ash Wednesday, just hours before my forehead accepted a sooty cross, I decided that this year I would give up expectations.
