What is 'normal' eating?

Everyone seems to have an opinion about what you should be eating, how you should eat it, and when. The lure of diets can be intoxicating — promising quick, easy and drastic results.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Something's gotta give with son's video games, cellphone

Q: We would like to limit our 16-year-old son's video game and cellphone time. We think homework should come first and then free time. He wants to relax with his video game and phone after school, which frequently results in homework not being done before he must attend a two-hour team practice at 7 p.m. That means he's not done with homework until around midnight and struggles the next morning to get out of bed. What is a fair requirement concerning his electronics or an appropriate punishment if he cannot get up in the morning and be ...

Kathy Bradley: The full sound of silence

The wind is traveling across the field in gusts, picking up fallen leaves and tossing them around noisily. They rustle behind me like a covey of quail flushed from their hiding place in the broom sedge. Farther down the road, where the pine trees converge like soldiers in formation, the wind gets caught in the highest branches, and the rustle is replaced with a rattle. I am always amazed at how full of sound the silence can be.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Dad's negative influence on son will have far-reaching effects

Q: My ex-husband and I have pretty much 50-50 custody of our 15-year-old son, who has become infected with his father's disrespect for me. When he's with me, he makes it very clear that he does not want to be here. He refuses to do anything I tell him to do or accept any attempt at discipline from me, curses at me and has even pushed me on a couple of occasions. I believe his father is a very bad influence, which is the only reason I continue to exercise my custody rights. Is there anything I can ...

Kathy Bradley: Baby, it's cold outside!

Like some kind of wizard, I spent the month of December utilizing potion (Jergens Natural Glow self-tanner) and incantation - "I would like a table outside, please" ­- to excellent effect in holding cold weather at bay. But the cold did eventually come - just in time for New Year's and all its frenetic, slightly underwhelming, overly affected examination of human behavior.
