Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Excess can lead to bad behavior

Q: We've just been informed that our 7-year-old son has been effectively "expelled" from the private school he attended last year because of repeated instances of stealing small items from classmates and, on one occasion, from the teacher's desk. We're rather shocked because our son was the highest-performing student in his first grade class and the school's administration promised to work with us concerning the problem. Through the school year, he stole at least 20 items from other children, things like pencils, pencil sharpeners, and several of these new toys called "spinners." He's an only ...

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Poolside picnic is perfection

As much as I enjoy cooking, there are those days when the last thing I want to do is heat up the oven, especially during Georgia summers. There's something about the hot temperatures that zap the energy right out of you, and anyway, summertime is the season to slow down and take it easy. Nothing supports that line of logic more than a carefree picnic. Today I'll share some simple and Some Kinda Good ideas to pack in a picnic basket. Whether you have your own swimming pool, or decide to take your picnic to the beach, the ...

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Troubled death, troubling grief

Suicide is a problem that will not go away. Indeed, it is growing and is undercounted because some suicides are made to look like accidents and suicidal lifestyles kill others. News reports focus on the young - people in their teens and early 20s. However, the number of suicides among older men is also rising. At every age, suicide is a matter of suffering and sorrow.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: A little 'Vitamin N' can go a long way

I call it "Vitamin N." It is the word children need to hear most, but it is currently the word children hear least. It is arguably the most character-building word in the English language, but then helping children achieve great things (or creating the illusion that they are achieving great things) has eclipsed helping children build strong character. That is unfortunate indeed because high achievement alone does not produce solid character, but a person with solid character will always do his or her best.

Tell them the stories

Second grade was the year I asked for and got a stuffed French poodle for Christmas. I named her Fifi. She had thick wire in her legs and could stand on my dresser by herself. It was the year that Mama made me a pink pin-wale corduroy dress for the Valentine's Day party at school. It had a Peter Pan collar and a high yoke with tiny pearl buttons down the front. It was the year that I added to my vocabulary the words college, scholarship and author and decided that those words were mine.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Make summer memories

July 2 marks the half-way point of every year except leap years. Take a mental look backwards - how have the first six months of the year been? Did you keep up with those easily-discarded resolutions or goals? Accomplish much on your bucket list? Turn your thoughts the other direction - ready for another school year? Started that Christmas list yet?

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Growing old in a health care jungle

At the moment of this writing, the Congress and president of the United States are scrambling to come up with legislation to shape how health care will work in this country for the foreseeable future. This issue has been a growing economic and ethical problem and a political football for decades. Neither the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) nor anything now being proposed can provide a broadly accepted system universal health care.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Time-outs are a weak punishment

For several reasons, I am not a fan of parenting magazines. First, they reinforce the impression that child-rearing is a very complicated affair, requiring consulting with "experts" on a regular basis (and yes, I am fully aware of the irony of that statement). Second, with every issue, said publications raise the Good Mommy Bar by giving women (their nearly exclusive consumers) more things to think about and more things to do. Third, they often render conflicting information and advice. Fourth, the advice they dispense is often just downright bad.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Friendship: Consider all that it entails, implies

It's one of the many words we use in our daily thinking and conversation which we tend to overuse and misuse. We have a general idea of what they mean, and may even know how to apply them correctly in discussions with others. But, for several possible reasons, we don't always do it. But this isn't an article about the use of the word, but our understanding of the importance of the concept.

Stock photos and funeral home fans

The first funeral home fan that I remember (probably from the funeral of a great-aunt or uncle, my attendance at which, as a child of 4 or 5, would never in that time have been considered inappropriate) had a stock painting of Jesus as the Good Shepherd on the front. On the back would have been the name and address of the funeral home and a tasteful slogan along the lines of "Here when you need us" or "Treating your family like family for over 50 years."
