Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child's anxiety may be caused by sudden changes

    Q: Since our daughter — now 2 years old — was born, we have lived with my parents. Being the first and only grandchild, she has been the center of attention. Several months ago, our son was born and we moved into our own home. Almost immediately, our daughter began pulling her hair out, sometimes in handfuls. Doctors have said she does it for attention and we should just ignore it. That’s what we’ve done but it has not stopped. It’s now gotten so bad that I’ve cut her hair because the side she pulls has gotten so ...

Kathy Bradley - Imagine that!

    I am lying on my back. The darkness outside the window has a green tinge to it, as though the night has mildewed. If there is a moon or any stars, they are blocked by the limp branches of the mimosa trees and the shed in the backyard — neither of which I can see, both of which I know are there. Also, there is the clothesline where my mother hangs the wet sheets and towels that flap and flap and flap and come back inside dry.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Children may pick up sassiness from television shows

    Q: The "sassiness" that I have heard so much about from my friends started a few months ago with my 5-year-old daughter. She will say things to me that I actually find myself tongue-tied on how or what to say to correct her. Sometimes, she apologizes, which tells me she knows she’s talking disrespectfully to me. What do you think about 10 minutes of timeout for this sort of thing?

God is in control of our lives

    I was reading a document recently about a man whose wife committed suicide. From all that he said, she was lovely, talented, intelligent and extraordinary in so many ways, but had a well-diagnosed illness that the best counseling couldn't cure.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child should outgrow head-banging

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child should outgrow head-banging

    Q: When he throws a tantrum, which happens several times a day, my 20-month-old often gets down on the floor and starts banging his head. Worried that he may hurt himself, I pick him up and comfort him. I know that reinforces head-banging, but I don’t know what else to do. Making matters worse, a school counselor friend of mine tells me that head-banging is something lots of autistic kids do. I’m at a loss.

Kathy Bradley - Why did it have to be snakes?

Kathy Bradley - Why did it have to be snakes?

         The snake was 5 feet long — exactly 5 feet long. I know this because I measured the skin he left in the hosta bed right outside my back door; the skin he left in a soft pile, like dirty clothes he expected his mother to pick up and toss in the laundry; the skin I picked up with a broom handle and stretched across the cool concrete carport, careful not to touch it, because, well, you just never know.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Potty training is a process

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Potty training is a process

    Q: My 26-month-old daughter will go on the potty happily every hour when told — we’re using your “potty bell,” and it’s working extremely well — and produces every time. As a result, she’s having very few, if any, wee incidents. However, we still have to catch her before an impending bowel movement — she usually begins releasing gas — and rush to get her to the potty. She will sit and poop on the potty, but at day care (three days a week), they can't watch her every second; therefore, she often poops in her pants there. How can ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Change is possible only through God

    A regular perusal of news outlets is enough to show that our world is in a mess, to put it mildly. Of course, this is nothing new. Political agendas, personal desires and worldly viewpoints always have made improving human relationships an uphill battle.

There's plenty to do around here

There's plenty to do around here

    I like Proverbs for several reasons: I learn something new every time I read it; the sayings are wise and easily understood; the glory of young men is in their strength, but the beauty of old men is their gray hair and great legs; grandchildren are the crown of the aged and that's why we had children. I realize that I have taken a few liberties so give me some slack.
