Neighborly steps toward friendship

One bird feeder hangs from the still-empty branch of a sycamore tree. One hangs from the already-budding branch of a saw-tooth oak. Both feeders are full.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Live full life in full view of your kids

Once again, a reader proves that parenting must be added to religion and politics as verboten subjects for polite conversation. A column I published back in December 2016 went viral recently - yes, three months later (such things are mysteries to me). In it, I proposed that parents, not children, are the most important people in a family and that the husband-wife relationship, not the parent-child relationship, should be first and foremost.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Suddenly, it's spring

This offering departs from the usual focus on aging to which I shall return next time. Something in my head demands to be said, hanging on like a song that will not go away. So, here it is.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Have a sweet St. Pat's Day with cookies

It's that infamous time of year in the Hostess City when everyone, no matter who your people are, becomes Irish for a day. Since I met and married a bonafide Savannahian, my life has never been the same. On March 17, each year, come rain or shine, we will don our green and orange, raise our glasses, pack our picnic baskets, and join the hundreds of thousands of others in the Spanish moss-covered oak tree city of Savannah, Georgia.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Mother was mostly right this time

Q: My 30-month-old has started throwing tantrums when I do not give her or do for her what she wants. During her fits, she cries, screams, tries to hit and even bite me, and then, if I prevent her from hitting me, will hit herself. My mother says this needs to be nipped in the bud. She recommends spanking. I say my daughter really doesn't know what she's doing and is too young to be disciplined for this. I'm also concerned about her self-hitting. What do you say?

Standing in line

The first time I can remember standing in line was at the milk dispenser in the lunchroom at Mattie Lively Elementary School. I didn't like milk. I was not made to drink it at home. But in the lunchroom at Mattie Lively, there was no other option.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: It's not wise to let it 'all' hang out

The problem in American parenting is the 1960s. Among other things that defined that very interesting (ref. ancient Chinese curse) decade was the replacement of rationality by emotionality. It was during the 1960s that the media, various self-appointed spiritual gurus, and the mental health professional community urged people to "get in touch with their feelings." And it was during the 1960s that parents were told by mental health professionals that children had a right to express their feelings freely.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Marching into a new month

An old English proverb predicts this of March's weather: "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb." The opposite is true as well, but the lion certainly roared his way in last Wednesday. Only time will tell if the prediction proves accurate for the end of the month. If only the breezes of the past week could have blown away the dusting of yellow that covered anything and everything that stood still briefly.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: The changing face of death

Death and dying, event and process, have always generated personal problems, the physical and emotional agonies of grief. Witness the biblical accounts of David's sorrow at the deaths of King Saul and his son, Jonathan, of his son with Bathsheba and his son, Absalom. Some of the works of the greatest authors in English literature (Shakespeare, Milton, Poe, Frost and many others) cry out in grief.
