Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Child rearing has gone 'off the rails'

I am sometimes asked if I think the "parenting pendulum" is swinging back, however slowly, toward where it was 60-plus years ago or at least toward a tolerable middle point.

A snail, some vines and a feather

Scene 1: A snail shell sits still and alone on the concrete of the carport at Sandhill. It is about an inch-and-a-half long, the color of coffee diluted with lots of milk, with the slightest sheen. I don't remember the last time I've seen one. I am entranced.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: How to live successfully and live to please God

Every sincere Christian wants to live to please God. It can be difficult in a world plagued by temptation, doubt, fear. But the Bible gives instruction on how to live successfully for Christ. For example, people in the Bible, although human, are powerful examples for us. Consider the lives of men and women such as Noah, Moses, Joseph, Deborah, David, Mary, Peter, John, Paul and many others. Hebrews 11 makes the point more clearly than I am able.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Don't subject child to unnecessary pain

Q: After two years of chemotherapy for acute lymphocytic leukemia, our 6-year-old daughter is now in remission. We've recently noticed she has difficulty focusing and staying on task. Otherwise, she is bright, happy and well-behaved. Her physician told us that chemotherapy involves neurotoxins that can cause focusing issues in children. He referred us to a neuropsychiatrist who administered a five-hour battery of tests, diagnosed ADD and prescribed an ADD drug. After reading you for years, I don't believe that an "illness" called ADD truly exists. But is chemotherapy-induced ADD a valid thing and if so, what do you ...

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: All that glitters

The world of personal finance abounds with wise words that often are ignored by people who should be wiser. "All that glitters is not gold." "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is not true." "Pay attention to what they are not saying." "Be sure to read the fine print." "Let the buyer beware."

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Offering help to each other

Christian brotherhood is a wonderful, yet complex bond between individuals saved by grace, and in continual need of spiritual help from God to live faithfully in a world devastated by sin. Our common heritage as God's children makes it possible for us to enable one another, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to be victorious over Satan and his forces. This is why Christians in the Roman province of Galatia were instructed by Paul to "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ" (Galatians 6:2).

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Dinner on the grounds is like coming home

On the first Sunday of October at noon every year, my family shares the time-honored tradition of attending homecoming and dinner on the grounds at Richland Baptist Church, known fondly to the locals as "Old Richland." Since the 1800s, family and friends have gathered among the Middle Georgia pines of Twiggs County to worship and fellowship. With a nip in the air, this year was no exception. The service is reverent, the food is plentiful and the people are like coming home.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Don't get 'too big for your britches'

In my latest book, "Grandma Was Right After All!," I take the top 25 parenting sayings of my youth and explain what they really meant. I do so because they've been distorted and demonized by the mental health community as psychologically harmful, which is balderdash given that child mental health is ten times worse today than it was in the 1950s, when their usage was commonplace.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Help child face fears to get over them

Q: Over the past year, our 4-year-old has developed several fears that have become quite disruptive. It started with a fear of dogs, which is inconvenient given that there are lots of dogs in our neighborhood. Since then she's become afraid of noises at night, wind (she thinks a hurricane is coming), and dying in her sleep. Needless to say, she is anxious a lot of the time. We've talked to her, reassured her, and so on, but nothing has worked. She's becoming a wreck, and so am I. Should I take her to a counselor? If ...
