Living with Children with John Rosemond: Encourage your child's flights of fancy

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Encourage your child's flights of fancy

    Today’s parents tend to worry about all manner of things that do not deserve second thoughts. Imaginary friends, for example. I’ve been asked many times by mothers if they should worry that their preschoolers have imaginary friends they seem to think — and in some cases even insist — are real.

Kathy Bradley: Flirting with the sunrise

Kathy Bradley: Flirting with the sunrise

    The color of this early morning in not-quite spring is liquid lavender, is pearly pink, is slightly silver in the way it glints and glows. The sky and the fields and everything in them are shaded as though tinted by a crayon unwrapped and swiped across the countryside with its long barrel, the sharp tip forgotten. Outlines and details are unimportant to the day as it languorously wakens.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Patience is the cure in potty training

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Patience is the cure in potty training

    Q: I’ve been using the method described in your toilet-training book with my 18-month-old daughter and she’s been doing great during the day. She rarely has an accident. However, I’m still using a diaper at nap-time and during the night (waiting for some consistency in dryness before taking that away). Is that correct? The only problem is: She’s figured out the routine and now only poops in her diaper when I put her down to sleep. She has not gone poop on the potty during the day for several weeks. Is that cause for concern?  Should ...

Time to put away childish things

Time to put away childish things

    The other day, I just happened to be in one of our prestigious retailers and my phone rang, so I answered it. It was one of our kids filling us in on the latest news about grandchildren, birthdays and not to forget the presents. Anyway, I noticed some high school-aged children staring at me and I asked, "You need something?"

Living with Children with John Rosemond: A different solution to closet monsters

Living with Children with John Rosemond: A different solution to closet monsters

    Q: About six months ago, our four-year old daughter began complaining of being afraid to be alone at bedtime. Upon questioning, she told us she was afraid of monsters in her closet and under her bed. We were unable to convince her otherwise. In fact, the more we talked to her, the more her fears grew to the point where she was becoming nearly hysterical at bedtime. As a result, I began staying with her until she fell asleep. The problem is that she wants to talk and doesn’t end up falling asleep until 10 or 11 o’clock ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Those who receive God's comfort must comfort others

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Those who receive God's comfort must comfort others

    “Comfort.” It’s a nice word, bringing up thoughts of well-being, security and ease. It was a word that reminded the apostle Paul of his relationship with God. Writing to the Corinthian church, he noted that God “comforts us in all our affliction ... (2 Cor. 1:4). Finishing his thought, he added, “... so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” God expects those whom he has comforted to use their opportunities to help others.

Kathy Bradley: Me and Gloria Gaynor

    This is what I heard. This is what I heard this morning. This is what I heard this morning when I walked outside into sunshine. When I walked outside into air that was warm and slightly cloying. This is what I heard: the songs of at least six different birds rising up gently from the branch like the voice of a mother waking her sleeping child. This is what I heard: the drip drip drip of water off the roof onto the curved mouth of the gutter, a message delivered by tom-tom.

    For individuals with developmental disabilities, the typical choices after finishing high school — getting a job or going to college — are difficult, if not impossible. There are thousands of Georgians with developmental disabilities, and the unemployment rate for that community is close to 87 percent.

Dealing with the enemies of Israel

Dealing with the enemies of Israel

    It has taken me three days to sit in front of my computer and start this article. The difficulty began when I sat down at my desk and glanced over at my open Bible. I don't even remember turning to Isaiah, but what was really disturbing was that I was staring at chapter 34 and I began to read, "Draw near, O nations, to hear, and listen, O peoples! For the Lord is angry with His enemies, furious, and has doomed them ... the mountains will flow with their blood. For the Lord has a day of vengeance on behalf ...

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 ...
