Gathering around the table

Confession: I set the table primarily for myself. The good dishes and the brass candlesticks and the tall tapers. The cloth napkins rolled and threaded into napkin holders. The broom sedge or cotton stalks or whatever I've foraged from the fields around the house staked into vases and pitchers and crocks.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: 'Sass-buckets' need not apply here

Q: Our 8-year-old has suddenly developed a very sassy mouth. She picked this up from a new neighborhood friend who speaks to her mother in a very disrespectful tone, like she's the girl's servant. There are no other girls this age in the neighborhood, so I hesitate to put a stop to the relationship but at the same time I want to nip this new skill in the bud before it becomes habit. Do you have any suggestions?

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Home — For them

"Home" is a word rich with meaning for many - perhaps most - of us seniors. It is rooted in a world that was typically small-town and rural before this country urbanized and its people became mobile in pursuit of careers or dreams of careers. The change since the middle of the 20th century is revolutionary in its impact, but "home" still has a hold on heads and hearts.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Classic autism not a mental disorder

Q: In the school district where I used to teach, I attended many meetings concerning children with special needs. Many of the kids in question were said to be "on the [autism] spectrum." In 15 years I witnessed the number of supposedly autistic children go from practically zero to enough to fill a special education class at almost every one of our 30-plus schools. A good number of these children were eventually mainstreamed into my class, and I felt then and even more strongly now that they were wrongly diagnosed. I can only think of two kids who in my ...

Shall we gather at the river?

The sun has not yet cracked the tree line. Its blush is just beginning to show when I step out onto the front porch to gauge the day. The air is close and the bird song is clear. Whatever I hear, see, feel today, I will hear, see, feel sharply. This much I know.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Don't make parents' issues your own

I was standing in the lobby of an auditorium in which I'd just spoken, talking with a small group of attendees, when a 30-something woman took me aside and told me that her parents were bad role models. One was verbally abusive; the other, distant and emotionally unavailable.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Take the time to be grateful

The month of November seems to inadvertently call attention to the grateful gauge in one's heart. How's the gratitude attitude in your home? Take time this month - during family mealtime, while riding in the car, just before bedtime, while cooking dinner, while doing chores - to share blessings aloud. Talk about small blessings, huge ones and everything in between. Be sure to point out personal blessings, but talk about the good fortune of others in your circle of friends and family. Teach your kids to be thankful for others' blessings, also. Count your blessings so often this month that ...
