Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Sick children should only be exposed to calming media

Q: My 6-year-old daughter watched too many episodes of a certain TV show when she was sick, and now she doesn't want to go to sleep at night because she is having scary thoughts related to the show. She will come out of her room again and again complaining of these thoughts - mostly before she has gone to sleep, rarely in the middle of the night - and want to be tucked back in. How would you recommend handling this?

Kathy Bradley - When the mental smoke clears

It is just after sundown. The yellow moon hovers in the navy blue sky and beneath it, far beneath it, where the sky meets the earth at a seam, a line of bright orange flames simmers. I stand on the front porch and watch a frothy lather of smoke floating off to the north.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr. - Special health issues

In general, aging people are not more "sickly" than the rest of the population. In fact, bouts with typical infectious diseases over the years have armed many of them with protective antibodies. Children with less buffered immune systems and regular exposure to "bugs" through day care centers, recreation programs, dancing classes, school, etc., typically do a lot more sniffing, sneezing, coughing and wheezing than their grandparents. This is partly offset by the elders' years of exposure to pollen and molds, which saddles some of them with allergies that produce the same effects.

Kathy Bradley: Not-so-great expectations

One year it was biscuits. One year it was list-making. The objects of my Lenten fasts have ranged from the concrete and indulgent to the intangible and neurotic. On Ash Wednesday, just hours before my forehead accepted a sooty cross, I decided that this year I would give up expectations.

Breakfast: Does eating a morning meal matter for health?

Some people may find nutrition information frustrating in part because of seemingly conflicting messages in the media and other sources related to what to eat. One area of “controversy” is the idea that skipping breakfast has negative consequences for weight management and health indicators such as blood pressure or cholesterol levels. These potential negative impacts could be concerning in that results from a large population study suggest that skipping breakfast is common among American adults, with 18 percent self-reporting skipping the morning meal.
