Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Critics continue debate on 'dangerous' beliefs on ADHD

My critics are providing me much material of late for this column and my weekly radio show (Saturdays, 6:00 ET, AFR). Most recently, a family therapist in Kentucky pleads with the Lexington Herald-Leader to stop running my column ("Stop Rosemond," Letters, Dec. 28, 2017), citing my "dangerous" belief that ADHD and other childhood behavior problems are not mental illnesses. According to Susan Bell, I "have not learned anything new in (my) nearly 50 years of advising parents." Furthermore, she says, other mental health professionals share her opinion of me. She's right about that, but wrong otherwise.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Homemade comfort: Roasted tomato soup

Earlier this week over cocktails and bleu cheese chips at Savannah's Crystal Beer Parlor, a good friend and I were chatting about homemade soup. He said, "Yeah, I saw your recipe for tomato soup on your blog, and I was amazed!" Much to my surprise, I said, "Really?" He explained that he had never considered making homemade soup and how it had always been something he would buy pre-prepared or simply pick up at a place such as Panera Bread.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Learning to understand the importance of peace

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Put your foot down and take the phone

Q: We recently discovered that our 16-year-old son has been smoking marijuana on a regular basis. At first, we intended to begin using an over-the-counter drug test but then learned that teens have figured out how to beat these tests. One of our son's friends, for example, was regularly tested at home and always tested negative despite the fact that he never stopped using. Also, do you think he should go into counseling?

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: College: No high school visits needed

Q: Our 17-year-old daughter wants to begin visiting colleges. She's a high school junior this year and this is when the college visitations begin. We're feeling like the Grinches Who Stole College Visitations because neither of us feel there's any value to this practice. We fail to understand how walking among and through buildings that all begin to look the same after a while and hearing a sales pitch from someone whose job depends on persuading an impressionable teen that the college he works for is a perfect fit for a teen he doesn't know is ...

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Year in review: My top 5 restaurant experiences

On this final day of 2017, I've decided to take a look back at my best dining experiences of the year and share them with you. My job affords me the opportunity to travel, and this year, I got to visit some really fun destinations, and eat some truly inspired food. My work took me to a few places I'd never been before, including Vegas, Ohio and Upstate New York. I also returned to a few familiar states, and at each location, I ate somewhere notable. Whether an appetizer, main course or dessert, each of these dishes were ...
