Living with Children

A recent article on grandparenting.com says that many baby boomers are experiencing difficulties in their relationships with adult children, including "not enough time together, not enough regular communication, not feeling needed or wanted…not understanding why they aren't closer."

A few years ago, a gentleman went to a lot of trouble to write me a simple letter that he sent to the newspaper where he reads this column, which the newspaper then mailed to me.

A word from UGA Extension

We've been looking at lawn problems with landscape folks this past week, and I thought I'd put a little piece about what we're seeing. Brown patch (Rhizoctonia solani) is the most common disease I find, and most common disease the diagnostic lab in Athens sees as well.

On a day that I was visiting someone in a nursing home, angels, disguised as caregivers, came in and requested that I step out while they worked. I walked down the hall, observing a life that caused me to ponder the circle of life.

A word from UGA Extension

I recently met with the Rotary Club Sunrise Chapter and we had a long discussion on weed control in turfgrass. If you are looking to stay ahead of the weeds in your yard, you may want to consider a pre-emergent herbicide. Applying a pre-emergent herbicide now will provide a better control of weeds this summer than a post-emergent herbicide alone.

Q: We would like to limit our 16-year-old son's video game and cell phone time. We think homework should come first and then free time. He wants to relax with his video game and phone after school, which frequently results in homework not being done before he must attend a two-hour team practice at 7 p.m. That means he's not done with homework until around midnight and struggles the next morning to get out of bed. What is a fair requirement concerning his electronics or an appropriate punishment if he cannot get up in the morning and ...

In the past week, the Extension office has received calls from local homeowners concerned with insects massing in and around their homes. Most of the sightings have been in around driveways and patios outside. From the samples local homeowners have shown me, these infestations are millipedes.

Q: Our 3-year-old son is very sweet, loving, and generally well-behaved. Occasionally, however, he breaks into a huge tantrum during which he becomes uncontrollable. The word "possessed" comes to mind. He will suddenly snap from being sweet to being a demon and then back to being sweet and loving again.
