Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Parents must control tantrums with controls of their own

Q: When our daughter, an only child, turned 13 and entered the eighth grade, it was like a switch was flipped. Almost overnight, she went from being a sweet, respectful and obedient child who had never given us any serious problems to being petulant, sassy, and often belligerent. She wants nothing to do with us anymore and makes that perfectly clear in often very hurtful ways. She stays in her room, on her smartphone, most of the time, often refusing to even eat dinner with us. We tried taking her phone away, but she threw such an out-of-control tantrum - shrieking ...

Rev. Isaac McCormick: Building a strong legacy

"John Dominy or John of Domingo came to the United States in the days of slavery with the (white) Ball family from Santo Domingo and Haiti, West Indies, bringing with him, his two sons, Abraham and Thomas Dominy.

The University of Owen

Owen is teaching me a lot. It is, of course, in his job description. A person doesn't take on the responsibility of a puppy without also accepting the unavoidable stretching, even breaking of one's parameters. I knew this when, on Halloween afternoon, I arrived at home to find him sitting under the carport with an expression on his face that could be read as either, "Where have you been? I've been so worried," or "Where have you been? I can't believe you kept me waiting."

Dr. Randy Gunter: A positive impact

He has fathered hundreds even though they do not bear his name. He has steered thousands to their final career destinations through his mentoring even though no one has kept record. Yet his call to fame will not be how many he has helped, but the way in which he has done it, and that is by getting involved in "Student Affairs," literally.

Q: You seem to be opposed to putting children into any sort of psychological therapy. That's curious, especially given that you're a child psychologist. What is your explanation for this and are there any situations in which you would be in favor of therapy for a child?

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: No talking can be the cure for common childhood fears

A true story: When my daughter, Amy, was a pre-teen, she became anxious about going to sleep because of fears of dying in the middle of the night. When I tucked her in (I was her preferred tucker-inner), she would tell me, usually tearfully, that she didn't want to go to sleep for fear of never waking up.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Bounty from the pines

In April, l will team with my friend Douglas Chassareau for a presentation on turpentining for the Bulloch County Historical Society. Doug, a Georgia Forestry Service veteran, probably knows more on the subject - past and present - than anyone else alive. Revisiting my resource materials has reminded me of how important turpentining has been to South Georgia. So, I am turning aside from columns on aging to write about this part of our heritage.
