Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: No smartphone, no need to police it

When I was a child, a popular comic strip was "There Oughta Be a Law." It ran in the paper that came to our doorstep every morning and was one of the first things I went to when it was my turn to get ink all over my fingers. I later realized that at one level the cartoonist was satirizing people who hold to great faith in the ability of government to solve all manner of social problems.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Food columnist launches new YouTube channel

If you've read my food column or followed my blog for any length of time, you know that one of my dreams is to host my own cooking show on a national television network. I've often written about it, sharing my close calls, like that time I was cast as a contestant on ABC TV's "The Taste," a cooking competition reality show. My brief video appearance on The Dr. Oz Show was fun too, when producers found my food blog and asked me to represent Georgia in Dr. Oz's Nationwide Healthy Recipe Challenge with a healthy ...

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Not an app for everything

Will Rogers - unique humorist, cowboy philosopher and gentle gadfly - typically began his monologues with "All I know is what I read in the newspapers..." Given current criticism of newspapers, those words might draw a cynical laugh now. As a working journalist in the past, I still put great stock in newspapers as reliable sources of information, but not so much in supermarket tabloids or cable news outlets with their revenue-generating talking heads.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Purchase 'stupid' for teen's first car

Adam Nickel thinks his teenage daughter, who's already hit three solid objects with her car -thankfully, no humans or other moving vehicles included - would do better with a car that comes equipped with blind-spot/lane-change alert (notifies driver when another vehicle is approaching on either side), lane assist (gently guides car, if it begins to drift, back into proper lane), backup camera display, backup alerts, pedestrian sensor, automatic braking, and a radio that won't come on unless everyone is buckled in. Said auto also has a computer program that monitors a teen driver's performance, and can be ...

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: August adventures with the family

Is it an age thing? Global warming? The newest technological advances and inventions that are supposed to give us extra minutes in the day? Something unexplainable contributes to the lazy days of summer speeding by faster and faster every year. It's just unfathomable that kids are back in school and college students follow suit shortly thereafter.

Always room for Jell-O, metaphor

Mama didn't buy Jell-O. Not even to adorn with a can of fruit cocktail and call it salad. The only time Keith and I got Jell-O was at school, cut into a square and plopped into a perfectly sized compartment on one of those indestructible oblong trays.

GSU students to gather for prayer walk

On a hot summer day in August 2016, Georgia Southern University students gathered on a small street with a questionable reputation. Instead of the usual loud music, parties and alcohol, these student members of the Greek community on the campus gathered on Greek Row for something a bit different - and some called it a "tiny glimpse of heaven."

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Toe the line in potty training toddler

Q: Our twin girls will be three in a few months. Our pediatrician recommended that we start toilet training at 32 months, which we did. After several months and lots of gnashing of teeth, one of the girls finally got it. The other one, however, seems completely oblivious to our efforts. This has become very frustrating for us and I'm afraid we're showing some anger at this point. The pediatrician says we should put her back in diapers until she's three and then start over. What do you think?

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Security?

Thomas Wolfe was right. These days are lit by lightning and nothing is changing faster than the economy. Seniors are seeing economic patterns that have served them well shifting, with even greater changes either certain or possible.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Rescue the boys so they will be men

Have you ever heard of an addict who was cured of his or her addiction because someone limited, but did not eliminate, their access to the substance or behavior in question? No, you have not. Is an addiction to gambling less harmful if the addict is only allowed to gamble five hours a week? No, it is not. The proposition is absurd.

I walk the line

The first day it rained. The second day it rained. The third day the sun came out, slowly and sheepishly, as though embarrassed by her failure to perform earlier in the week. The beach swelled with people, families mostly, and the toys of various sizes and costs without which the vacationers would have had to notice the ocean or, worse, engage in conversation.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: God will cleanse us from sin

When I was growing up, I occasionally helped my mother - yes, at her insistence - by washing the dishes, pots and pans after a meal. I must admit that sometimes I completed the job just in time for the family to sit down for the next meal. I also confess a less than perfect effort at cleaning the food off the dishes, since I usually didn't really want to do it anyway! I still don't really care for the task, though I do it occasionally. It's not quite the job today as it was earlier; about all that ...
