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.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Feelings are the key for gun issues

Lessons learned from London Bridge

I was only 6 when my family moved from Mikell Street and yet it remains, all these years later, my neighborhood. The people who lived on that street and the one behind it, College Lane remain, all these years later, my people. So I don't suppose that the sadness that rose up in me when I heard the news of the death of one of my early playmates should have been totally unexpected. But it was.

Dr. Charles Bonds II: Headed for greatness

"Hey, Google! - Who taught in Wrens and Valdosta from 1966-1972; moved to Statesboro, and became the first black professor at Georgia Southern University in 1973; retired in 1996 as full Professor Emeritus, becoming the first black professor to earn full professorship in 1991; gained notoriety as the "Reading Professor" by giving "reading buddies" (stuffed animals) to children as he read wearing full academic regalia; and in 2009 penned, sang and produced his own Christmas carol CD- all while blind?"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: The 'awesome child' leaves no room to stand criticism

In Raleigh, North Carolina, on the backside of the Department of Education building is a structure known as the Education Wall. Completed in 1992, the EW was conceived and created by artist Vernon Pratt and writer Georgann Eubanks. Engraved into the polished red granite are various messages that presumably reflect my home state's commitment to children.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Parents must learn to convey authority

Four sentences into her Wall Street Journal article on recent research into spanking ("Spanking for Misbehavior? It Causes More!" December 17, 2017), the author, Susan Pinker, makes two grievous errors: first, she says that children under 7 cannot master their emotions; second, she says a fair amount of misbehavior on the part of a young child distinguishes him from a robot.
