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. For example, my strong-willed, stubborn, argumentative 14-year-old daughter wants to argue with me about nearly every decision I make, every "no," every rule, every instruction. I am going slowly insane. How do I make her stop?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: A spirit of thanksgiving

People arrive at thankfulness in a myriad of different ways. We're not naturally born with a heart of gratitude or a spirit of thanksgiving; it's our life experiences and influences that teach us to understand the true meaning of being thankful.

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 ...

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Count your blessings in the calm and storm

Despite the struggles and hardships last month's hurricane caused, the month of November serves as a daily reminder to count our blessings, both at home and beyond. The onslaught and aftermath of the storm banded families and united the community in ways that strengthened the underlying fibers of our close-knit population.

Kathy Bradley: The gospel of Saint Kathy

The morning after the presidential election breaks still and gentle. The colors of the landscape - pale gray, faded blue, soft green - make me think of cashmere sweaters. There is no breeze worth noting. The flag that proclaims "Welcome Friends" hangs straight and limp from the flagpole, and the wind chimes ring out only the infrequent single note.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Grandpa's advice isn't the best for unmotivated teen

Q: Our 17-year-old daughter is bright but puts very little effort into her schoolwork. For example, she currently has very low grades in several classes simply because of not turning in assignments. Her only after-school activity is hanging out with her friends, so the problem, in our estimation, is simply one of setting priorities. We think she needs a job and have made getting one a condition of having access to a car (one of ours) other than to drive to work and back. We have also told her that to have broad driving privileges, she must get her grades ...
