Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Things to consider when choosing a private school

Q: We are looking for a private school for our 4-year-old. Regardless of the school we ultimately choose, we want to keep him there through eighth grade at least. We live in an suburban area, so we have a lot of options to choose from. Our son is intelligent, creative and very imaginative. Do you have a recommendation?

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Smart car for teen may not be the smart choice

Greg Fulton 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 a blind-spot/lane-change alert (notifies the driver when another vehicle is approaching on either side), lane assist technology (gently guides the car, if it begins to drift, back into the proper lane), a backup camera display, backup alerts, a pedestrian sensor, automatic braking and a radio that won't come on unless everyone is buckled in. Said vehicle also has a computer program that monitors a ...

Carrie Ann Baade: 'Piece and Pieces'

It's been a summer of artistic exploration for local children at the Averitt Center for the Arts, and many of them have learned the art of collage. Composed of fragments of found imagery from magazines, books and fabric, collage is an art that reorganizes these elements into new, startling compositions.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Summer road trip to remember

As a final ode to summer's end and in celebration of our one-year wedding anniversary, my husband and I took a road trip to visit family on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, a little slice of Southern coastal heaven. Before last week, I had never been to the Magnolia State. I've been missing out!

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Stepparents should have disciplinary discretion

Q: The woman I've been dating - a single mom with two young boys - and I have decided to get married. My only reservation, and I've told her this, concerns the stepfather thing. I'm not clear, and really neither is she, on the proper role and responsibilities of stepfathers, especially in the area of discipline. She reads your column religiously and told me to ask you for advice. It would be most appreciated.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Enjoy some last-minute summer fun

Large, yellow children- and teen-movers on the highways in the early hours of the morning and again in the mid-afternoon can only mean one thing: School is back in session. And though most parents and children believe that signifies summer's end, technically and calendar-speaking, almost six weeks of summertime remain.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Pay attention to your inner self

Cosmetic surgery has been a booming business for many years. An amazingly high percentage of people have had one, two and in some cases several operations to correct things they believe are wrong with their bodies. Many of these are not abnormalities or dangerous growths but the natural effects of aging and the results of abusing the human anatomy. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that 15.6 million cosmetic procedures, including both minimally invasive and surgical, were performed in the United States in 2014. In addition, 5.8 million reconstructive surgery procedures were performed.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: 4 fresh ways to enjoy sweet Georgia peaches

The familiar taste of a ripe, sweet Georgia peach is the ultimate flavor of summertime. Nothing beats biting into the fuzzy, soft fruit and hearing the sound of the peel break while the juices run down your chin. I grew up in middle Georgia, from which, according to GeorgiaPeachFestival.com, approximately 83 percent of the state's peach production comes. We often visit the popular Lane Southern Orchards, a working farm in Fort Valley, Georgia, where onlookers can watch as peaches are picked fresh and processed on the packing line. My mom and I love going to the Peachtree Caf ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Medication will not change child's misbehavior

Q: Our son is a rising second-grader at a private school. Last year, his behavior was often disruptive and sometimes even downright defiant - problems his first-grade teacher did not have with him. At home, we have no more than typical "boyishness" - nothing approaching serious. Nonetheless, at the school's request, we took him to a private counselor they recommended. When that did no good, the school began insisting he had a disorder and wanted him put on medication - something we will not do. Anyway, we want to take preventive steps to head this off before it becomes an issue in ...
