Living with Children with John Rosemond - It's your child's homework, not yours

Living with Children with John Rosemond - It's your child's homework, not yours

    Q: I homeschooled my oldest, an 8-year-old boy, until this year. He started third grade in public school in August. As a homeschooling mom, I was not a micromanager and don’t want to become one now, but the school virtually insists that parents help with homework. I want him to be independent. What are your thoughts on this?

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - He only did it once: the sacrifice of Jesus

    According to what may be an apocryphal story, shared by my friend Alan Smith, two visitors were touring the U. S. Naval facility in Annapolis, Maryland. As they followed the tour guide, they noticed several students on their hands and knees examining a courtyard with pencils and clipboards in hand.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: September splendor awaits those with patience

    Sweltering temperatures soaring in the 90-degree range makes one wonder if autumn will ever return below the Mason-Dixon line, but with prayers and patience, Southerners too will soon enjoy the splendor of September fall days. Beautiful hues of orange and yellow and red lay hidden until the shorter days of September.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: South & Vine Public House burned but not broken

    During the summer of 2013, just six months after an intriguing new restaurant popped up in downtown Statesboro on the corner of South Main and West Vine streets, I ventured inside to discover a restaurant that would become the backbone of our community and so much more.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Happy kids get old-fashioned parenting

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Happy kids get old-fashioned parenting

    As the old parenting point of view fell out of fashion beginning in the late 1960s, the vernacular that accompanied it all but completely disappeared. Today’s parents don’t say to their children the sorts of things parents said to children in the 1950s and before, things like “You’re acting too big for your britches again, young man.”

Kathy Bradley - A mimosa in time

Kathy Bradley - A mimosa in time

       What is this? A mimosa tree? Its slender branches are curved in an arc out over the ditch. Its fingerling leaves are dangling over my head. Its barkless trunk is all but hidden among the grapevines and pine trees and scrub oaks. I have walked by this very spot hundreds of times, driven by it thousands of times. How could I have never noticed a mimosa tree?

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Five-year-old wants to touch his cousin

    Q: Our 5-year-old grandson sees his 5-year-old female first cousin from time to time. After they play for a while, he tells her he wants to “touch” her. This has happened twice in recent months. Her parents are very upset, but our grandson’s parents read lots of parenting books and seem to think it’s no big deal. Your thoughts on this matter?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - My moment with the queen of Southern cuisine

    As many of you may know, Paula Deen recently held two live shows in Savannah as part of her “Paula Deen LIVE!” tour. I had made plans to attend long before her team reached out to me in late July, and I wouldn’t in my wildest dreams have imagined the events that followed.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Our victories come from God

    Somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 years or so ago (not long after Carole and I moved from Arkansas to Statesboro), I learned of an opportunity to tour a WWII vintage U.S. Army Air Force B-17 bomber on display at the Statesboro airport. The study of history has been a favorite pursuit of mine since college, so I jumped at the chance to actually see this famous aircraft, “up close and personal!”

The classroom of life

The classroom of life

    It looks like we’re going to have a great semester here at old East Georgia State College! The hallways are packed and students are trying to find their room assignments, make new friends, wait in long lines at the book store and just get comfortable with life after high school. It’s not easy! You’d think that with all these electronic gizmos and computer knowledge, these young folks have the answers of the universe in the palms of their hands. Confusion reigns!

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parent Anxiety: the root of potty problems

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parent Anxiety: the root of potty problems

    On one of my websites I, along with a team of certified parent coaches, answer questions submitted by parents. In the last two days, 67 percent of the questions have concerned toilet training. A 3-year-old is afraid of the potty. A 26-month-old will only use the potty independently if he’s not wearing clothes. A 23-month-old seems oblivious to mom’s expectations. And so on.
