Living with children

Q: Our 12-year-old has a smart phone. I know you don't approve, but all - and I do mean all - of his friends have them and texting is how they communicate. I don't think, under the circumstances, that making him be the "odd man out" socially is a good idea.

There are two Bibles that sit, always untouched, on the fireplace mantle in our living room. They are delicate and old, yellowed pages are falling from them, the black tabs denoting the different books mostly gone.

I recently enjoyed the privilege of seeing and hearing radio talk-show host Dennis Prager speak on the topic of happiness. He only spoke for 20 minutes, but said more in that short span than most talk-show people are able to say in two hours.

Behind the little house in which I spent a happy childhood, where I toted books from one room to another, where I knelt by my bed nightly to pray, where homemade biscuits buttered and sprinkled with sugar were a favorite treat, is a little shed that, to the outside

Q: While exploring your website, I ran across a column you wrote a while back about a 13-year-old who wanted a Mohawk haircut. You told the parents not to allow it, pointing out that if you give most teenagers an inch, they're eventually going to push for a mile. I think it's generally wise for parents to say yes to small things so that it really means something when they say no. Doesn't choosing one's battles carefully reduce the likelihood of rebellion?

"Puzzled Grandma in the South" recently wrote to "Dear Abby" asking "Why is there so much angst today over raising children, especially in young mothers?" Grandma has observed that moms of her generation (baby boomers) did not agonize over raising kids, and neither did her mother or grandmother.

Q: I homeschool my three children, ages are 8, 6 and 5. The older two have a very poor attitude about doing school, especially math, and the younger one is starting to pick up on it. Their poor attitudes make the lessons take longer and they complain and cry about finishing their assignments.

As the years of Mama's life grew long into the shadows of age, she managed to squeeze every bit of good out of growing old. She used it to get both what she wanted and to shun that which she did not want.

A word from UGA Extension

I have reports from several homeowners about their turfgrass fading and dying out. Also, some are reporting small mounds in the yard. These signs could very well be mole crickets.
