Living with Children with John Rosemond: Why teen mental health has worsened

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Why teen mental health has worsened

    In the 1960s, child and teen mental health and behavior problems began an alarming rise that has continued to the present. In 1970, one of my grad school professors proposed that this trend could be explained with the flight-or-fight principle (i.e. in response to perceived threat, a person is inclined to either flee or stand and fight).

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: March is a month of merriment

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: March is a month of merriment

    With the rainbow of colors on recent weather maps and the shuttered doors of schools just hours north of here, it’s difficult to imagine that March pledges shamrocks and springtime. But promise it does, at least on the calendar. Watch for leprechauns, greenery and Irish dances the first part of the month and delight in the early spring offerings toward the end. Look for every shade of green imaginable when new buds and fresh leaves make their appearances after a long winter’s nap. Enjoy the hues and colors of springtime with lawns that awaken and trees and flowers ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Son's anxiety caused by panic attacks

    Q: My 13-year-old son has developed overwhelming anxiety about going to school. This began a year ago, but has gotten steadily worse since then. At this point he fights me every morning about going to school, and even if I can persuade him to get in the car, he won’t get out. If I try to force him, he becomes nearly hysterical. I’m a stay-at-home mom, so there have been many days this year when I’ve simply taken him back home. His principal and everyone at the school say he’s fine once he’s in the ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Custody battles should prioritize kids

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Custody battles should prioritize kids

    Equality under the law is a uniquely American principle, one that no freedom-loving person would oppose, but the manner in which said principle is currently applied to the issue of child custody treats children as property — like pieces of furniture or bank accounts — rather than human beings with rights of their own, including the right to stable living conditions.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: So long, Statesboro; hello, Lowcountry

     Sometimes you have to embrace a place before you can move on. I remember the moment I chose to embrace Statesboro. It was during a solo lunch at McAlister’s Deli. No one here was writing about food, at least not in our hometown newspaper. I saw a need to highlight the local restaurants in our city, to draw positive attention to the chefs and restaurant owners and to help promote our outstanding farming community. I reached out and pitched my idea to the Statesboro Herald, and thankfully they agreed.

Words written in the firmament

    Every morning, I get to look into the eyes of the most beautiful lady I have ever seen. I smile at her and she says, “Good morning, Doofus!” with a smile that makes my day. All week I get to drive on some back roads — hopefully avoiding the ubiquitous deer — to be at East Georgia State and surrounded by students of all shapes and sizes and some of the nicest colleagues you’d ever want to meet. My office is on the south side and I am within spitball range of three historians, two great English professors, a first class ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Benefits of vaccines outweigh the risks

    First, a full disclosure: I have been vaccinated against measles, mumps, diphtheria, rubella, whooping cough, smallpox and shingles and have had none of these maladies. At one time or another, my wife received all of these same vaccinations. Our kids were both immunized, and they have chosen to have their kids immunized. None of us has ever had an adverse reaction to a vaccination.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: 'Get the jump' on sin and prepare with God's word

    Clothing stores normally display new fashions well ahead of the season. Stores here in Statesboro have had spring fashions out for several weeks, even though spring is several weeks away. An iron-clad rule for merchandisers is to "get the jump” on the buying seasons. In a spiritual context, Christians should be interested in "getting the jump" on sin, being prepared for temptation when it comes. This can be done if we'll apply some basic principles.

Editorial - Making Statesboro safer: A good start

A significant drop in the crime rate reported last week by the Statesboro Police Department is good news, indeed, and a positive sign that recent efforts at increasing cooperation between local law enforcement agencies is working. Based on data compiled by the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program, Part 1 crimes — the most serious and violent crimes — dropped 10.5 percent in 2014 compared to 2013.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Celebrate the "love month"

    Seems a little unreasonable that the month of February, the one that touts hearts and love and sweethearts and chocolate, is the shortest month on the calendar. But, that just means extra care and attention must be given each day to those we love. Warm up the days in February with time spent with family — bundle up and go for long walks, roast marshmallows, read books under the covers or gather in the kitchen and prepare a big pot of soup. Make every day a celebration with unique ideas or try some of the holidays below.

Since it ran, readers have sent me numerous examples of parents who indeed seem to qualify as JPN and be in need, therefore, of You Ought to be Ashamed of Yourself Therapy.
