Now get ready for boomerang parents

Boomerang kids. You've probably read articles about them or may even have one yourself. That's where parents reopen their formerly empty nests to adult children who are trying to pay off student loans or bills, save for a down payment or regroup after losing a job.

Pets bring responsibility

Editor, I strongly feel that there should be strict spay/neuter laws in the entire world, but let us start with Hinesville, Ludowici and Jesup. Without laws or limits, people will continue to be irresponsible, letting their animals breed and abandoning the pups if they can't sell or give them away. I firmly believe if you are not a licensed breeder, then your animals need to be spayed/neutered to stop this epic problem of unwanted/unplanned litters that keep the vicious cycle going on and on.

Feedback good, rewards bad

As my readers know, I am not a fan of rewards given for behaving properly. First, any improvement in behavior that comes about as the result of reward is almost always short-lived. Second, rewards teach children how to be manipulative, to withhold proper behavior until an adult makes a sufficiently attractive offer. In effect, rewards are bribes, but one must be careful to distinguish between giving a reward and giving positive feedback. The latter is essential to helping a child "fine tune" his or her behavior.
