Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Time-outs are a weak punishment

For several reasons, I am not a fan of parenting magazines. First, they reinforce the impression that child-rearing is a very complicated affair, requiring consulting with "experts" on a regular basis (and yes, I am fully aware of the irony of that statement). Second, with every issue, said publications raise the Good Mommy Bar by giving women (their nearly exclusive consumers) more things to think about and more things to do. Third, they often render conflicting information and advice. Fourth, the advice they dispense is often just downright bad.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Friendship: Consider all that it entails, implies

It's one of the many words we use in our daily thinking and conversation which we tend to overuse and misuse. We have a general idea of what they mean, and may even know how to apply them correctly in discussions with others. But, for several possible reasons, we don't always do it. But this isn't an article about the use of the word, but our understanding of the importance of the concept.

Stock photos and funeral home fans

The first funeral home fan that I remember (probably from the funeral of a great-aunt or uncle, my attendance at which, as a child of 4 or 5, would never in that time have been considered inappropriate) had a stock painting of Jesus as the Good Shepherd on the front. On the back would have been the name and address of the funeral home and a tasteful slogan along the lines of "Here when you need us" or "Treating your family like family for over 50 years."

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

I was honored to be a guest on my good friend Dennis Prager's syndicated radio program the other day and as anyone who is familiar with my point-of-view on parenting matters will appreciate, much of the conversation centered on the need for children to obey.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Living long

Would you like to live 1,000 years? According to an article in Smithsonian magazine, a Silicone Valley biologist named Aubrey de Grey insists that it is possible, even that someone living now will do so. It is all about stopping the aging process in human cells and replacing them when they do malfunction. Most research biologists disagree with him, but what if his predictions are right or anything like right?

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Kids need parents to be truly in charge

Many of today's parents suffer (and suffer they do, albeit a good number seem to feel their suffering is a sign of conscientious parenting) from what I call "upside-down, inside-out and backwards parent-view disorder."

To make a tree, begin with a straight line, vertical. On each side of the straight line add additional straight lines, shorter, at an angle. These are limbs. To the limbs add more straight lines, shorter still. These are branches. Continue in this manner until your tree is finished.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Don't jump to the diagnosis just yet

Q: Our 4-year-old prefers solitary play over play with other children. It's been this way from early on when I began arranging play dates for him. When those really didn't work, I enrolled him in pre-school but that didn't help either. If firmly instructed to do so, he will join in and "play" with other children. I put the word in quotes because he doesn't seem to really connect. He's very imaginative and will spend hours in his room playing quietly on his own or even boisterously with various imaginary friends.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Pull over for Georgia peaches

A good road trip becomes a great road trip at first sight of those often hand-painted wooden, one to two word signs seen along the interstate, leading up to an exit a mile away. Sometimes they're nailed to trees at eye-level or simply secured in the ground one after another and written in shorthand exclaiming, "Boiled P-Nuts," "Peaches" and "Watermelon."
