Rosemond: Tough love gets results for child’s potty problem

As regular readers of this column know, my advice tends toward the "psychologically incorrect" end of the spectrum.

Wilburn: Plan properly for a healthy hike

Fall is here and cooler weather means that many people will soon be hitting the trails.

My husband Will and I have hiked the Georgia section of the Appalachian Trail and many other trails across the United States. I enjoy hiking because I love nature; there are just some things you will never see unless you are on foot outdoors. Hiking is also one of the most fun ways I know to exercise.

Rich: Southern skillets are simply an iron canvas

There is an art to making fried green tomatoes. Unfortunately, too many restaurant cooks are artless. They think they can when they can't.

It's a risk sometimes to order fried green tomatoes from a menu. This I have learned the hard way.

Myers: What do you do when you have an ‘uh-oh’ moment?

From the other room, I watched Chloe standing in the middle of the living room. She raised her arms out beside her, looked down at the floor and slowly started turning in a circle. After a few turns, she became more confident and turned faster.

Faster and faster she went, a grin on her face as wide as her outstretched arms. Suddenly, she stumbled. Her smile faltered. It was replaced with an expression of shock and concern. "Uh-oh," she said as she plopped to the floor, a victim of both dizziness and gravity.

Thompson: It’s the little things that bring us joy

One of the reasons I enjoy writing this column is because I truly believe I'm helping people. I suppose that sharing another duct tape tip may not radically change a person's life. However, I've found that it's the little improvements that you make in your life and the lives of others that over time leads to great happiness. I'd like to defer to the patron saint of tips, Benjamin Franklin, and what he had to say on the subject...

Skaggs: Color your fall garden with mum varieties

As the garden begins to fade into fall, you can bring out a rainbow of color with garden mums. Colors include many shades of yellow, orange, red, purple, bronze, pink and white.

The flowers themselves come in many different forms, from spider types with long, narrow petals to cushion types that have wider, more compact flowers.

Rosemond: Halloween’s origins not worth so much worry

Question: I do not like the implications of Halloween, but my husband does, so we allow the kids to dress up as fun/positive characters.

Rich: The key to a man’s mind is security

It has taken me all the years - proving that you can always learn important new things - to realize how sensitive men can be.

I get twice as much mail from men who have been offended over something I've written - it always has to do with something that pertains to what they perceive as their manhood - than I get from women over anything.

Thompson: Keep your sheets matched with this simple method

This has got to be one of the simplest and most common-sense tips I've ever written about. In fact, I often wonder why most people don't know about this tip. After you wash a set of linens, store them in one of the pillowcases. By doing this you'll ensure that you never have mismatched linens. (It's the simple tips that I love the most).

Myers: Father’s voice calms in trying times

Each night before I go to bed, I go into Chloe and Cole's rooms to check on them.

I make sure they're not about to roll off the edge of their beds. I make sure they're tucked under the covers. I stand there and watch their sweet slumber for a minute or two, then I steal one - or several - last kisses.

Skaggs: Find fall color at garden expo

Fall is here, and random dogwoods and maples are hinting of the fall leaf season. But while you're making plans to admire the colorful foliage, why not plant your own fall color?

Wilburn: Make family mealtime special

For many American families, shared mealtimes are less and less common. In a recent national study commissioned by the White House and the YMCA, one in four parents reported that their families eat together four or fewer times per week. In that same study, one in 10 admitted that they eat only one or no meals per week with their children.

Rich: Man’s missing manners force an end to love

Not too long ago, I met a nice guy, a renewing of an old friendship actually, and I tried to fall in love with him. I tried but I couldn't.
