Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: When a child trusts, that child obeys

Q: I've read enough of your writings to know that you believe children should be obedient, that they should do what they are told. I want my children to think for themselves and to question authority, not to blindly obey simply because someone is bigger than they are. I don't want them thinking that "might makes right." What's with wanting children to be robots?

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Son will figure out the lemonade thing

Q: Our 17-year-old son is an unmotivated student. A junior in high school, he is clearly capable of making straight A's, but typically makes B's and C's. He plays on both the football and tennis teams, but is a standout at neither. He thinks kids who use drugs and play video games are "stupid" and his friends are all good kids, most of whom make better grades. He's polite, well-mannered, and respectful. Other adults rave about what an impressive kid he is. Meanwhile, we're pulling our hair out. We've talked to him many times ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Why is Jesus' resurrection important?

Faith in Jesus rests firmly on the evidence for his resurrection. In the opening words of his letter to the Roman church, Paul wrote that Jesus "...was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord...." (Romans 1:4).

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Vocational education is crucial for many

During my sophomore year at Proviso West High School in Hillside, Illinois, my guidance counselor, Mr. Gusloff, refused my request to take auto shop because I was, he said, college-bound and my presence in a vocational program would take space needed by a student who was not so destined. I was disappointed, and I felt then, as I still do, that he was wrong to pigeon-hole me and limit my options, but I had no choice but to accept his decision. I never even told my parents, both of whom held Ph.D.'s. They would have only shrugged their ...

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Easter entertaining: Recipes and recollections

Few things bring me greater joy than entertaining family and friends around my kitchen table. Easter Sunday is such an occasion. After church, I like to host Sunday dinner for my parents and sweet in-laws, plus my husband's beloved Aunt Polly. From coconut cake to deviled eggs and brown sugar-mustard glazed ham, our celebratory feast is always Some Kinda Good, and as Southern and traditional as it gets.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: End times: Last rites, rituals

I learned a lot from teachers and colleagues who were cultural anthropologists. For example, we should not dismiss the unusual ways of people from other places or our own ancestors. Established patterns of behavior are not oddities born out of ignorance or superstition but shared solutions to issues of existence. Rituals are not empty forms; they meet deep and recurring needs, personal and social.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Truth will out when it comes to ADHD

In 2009, pediatrician and former medical school professor Bose Ravenel and I published "The Diseasing of America's Children" (Thomas Nelson), in which we argued from facts that ADHD and other childhood behavior disorders were inventions of the psychological-psychiatric-pharmaceutical industry.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: No foolin' — The month of April is upon us

The cosmic forces and calendar fairies attempted to play April Fool's on us for practically the entire month of March, from summer weather one week to a blossom-killing frost the next week to rainstorms with wind gusts of tropical proportions and then back to spring-like temperatures the following week. The weather announcers said, "Spring? Just kidding - protect the plants." And then, "Spring? Nope, still fooling you - break out the sunscreen and blast away the air conditioning."

Avian liturgy: call and response

Across the way, two turkeys, dark and awkward, amble across the field. The larger leads, the smaller follows. Two mockingbirds dive-bomb the holly tree at the corner of the house as though the single berries upon which they are intent are the last two berries on the face of the earth. Their wings flutter like the pages of an old book thumbed hurriedly. Somewhere in the near-distance, a flock of geese squawk.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Times have changed; basic tenets of parenting have not

Q: You seem to blame all of America's parenting woes on mental health professionals and imply that if parents still raised kids as did people in the 1950s and before, they wouldn't be having the problems they're having today.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Spring: Strawberries and market season

Happy spring! We have survived the dreary days of winter and I couldn't be happier to welcome the sunshine, watch the azaleas reveal their colors and see the earth bloom back to life. I've always loved this season and I may be a little biased. My birthday is in April, the Masters golf tournament returns to my hometown of Augusta, and my family and I keep I-95 South hot with trips to my favorite vacation destination: St. Simons Island in the beautiful Golden Isles of Georgia.
