Earlier discipline starts, easier it is on kids, parents

Q: My parents recently told me that my husband and I are letting our toddler run our family and that it's becoming increasingly uncomfortable for them to visit or have us visit with them - they live 10 miles away - because of her misbehavior. Mind you, she is only 28 months old. They told me, for example, that she should be toilet trained already. Her pediatrician, however, told us to wait until she was closer to 3. In addition, she throws frequent tantrums and often refuses to do what we tell her to do. That's normal for this age ...

Don't discourage son from becoming mechanic

Q: Our 18-year-old son made only slightly better than average grades in high school and finished in the top half of his graduating class. He could have done better, but has a history of underachievement which we explain as boredom. He managed to get into a second-tier state college, but has decided after one semester (and as one might expect, mediocre grades) that he doesn't want to go back. In fact, he's telling us that he doesn't want to go to college at all. Instead, he wants to become a diesel mechanic. Needless to say, we're ...

I think I love you - goodbye, David Cassidy

I was tempted to write about the royal engagement of Prince Harry to an American – especially as I have a lot of experience of a Brit marrying a U.S. citizen.

A lesson on not giving up

A less-seasoned journalist would have given up much earlier, but not Iris Long. This "was not her first rodeo," as she often said, and she had every intention of getting to the bottom of the story concerning the events at First Baptist Church on Sunday.

Views of childhood diagnoses stir controversy

An interesting, and telling, tale: As part of a recent speaking engagement sponsored by a regional medical center in the west, I was scheduled to address a gathering of local pediatricians. Two weeks prior to the address, my contact called to inform me that the medical center's behavioral health unit had put up such a fuss over my planned talk to the pediatricians that the center had decided to cancel it.
