It happened, I suppose, when I was in the fourth grade. That is my first strong recollection of the unfairness of life.

Q: Whenever my 4-year-old son tries something new, he becomes very frustrated if he has any difficulty at all. This happens when practicing numbers, letters, or anything else I try to teach him. I tell him that he's doing fine and will do better with practice, but it's obviously not sinking in. In general, he's a perfectionist in the sense that everything must be "just so." It worries me because we have depression, anxiety, and OCD on both sides of the family.

A word from UGA Extension

We have a large amount of Bradford pears in the county, and many are concentrated to subdivisions. They create shade and look great in the spring with their white flowers. This year they may have more issues with a certain disease than in the past. This disease is Fire Blight and can also spread to fruiting pears, apples and crabapple.

Over the course of many years, I have spent a lot of time in hospital waiting rooms, hoping for good news and, at the same time, dreading the bad. I can remember clearly moments of time suspended by a pounding fear resounding in my ears like a thunderous cannon firing relentlessly.

Living with children

Q: We are a struggling blended family. My husband has three children (ages 7, 12, 17) from a previous marriage. Their mother's home is focused on the easiest way of parenting. She allows unlimited electronics, showers the kids with presents, and does not discipline effectively at all. It's obvious she wants to be the kids' friend.

Q: Our 7-year-old son has sucked his thumb forever and more or less constantly. He has recently switched to sucking his index finger and putting his right hand down the back of his pants at the same time. This is driving us crazy.

When I was a young sports writer, just beginning an education on the world of sports and the men who made the majors great, I was fascinated with NFL quarterback Kenny Stabler.

A word from UGA Extension

Every year there seems to be many cases of defects in tomatoes. These include symptoms such as: poor seed germination, death of young plants, twisted leaves that are fiddle shaped, curled and cupped leaves, and reduced yields. This is usually from herbicide damage which is caused from diseases, insects and mostly herbicide drift. Many cases shown this summer have been planted in hay or compost that has been fertilized with manure.

Q: My 6-year-old daughter watched too many episodes of a certain TV show when she was sick and now she doesn't want to go to sleep at night because she is having scary thoughts related to the show. She will come out of her room again and again complaining of these thoughts (mostly before she has gone to sleep, rarely in the middle of the night) and want to be tucked back in. How would you recommend handling this?

A word from UGA Extension

Homes in suburbia are getting closer together. Lot sizes are shrinking and houses are getting bigger. Space is limited and privacy is at a premium.

Living with children

Q: We have a 7-year-old son and two girls ages 9 and 6. The girls are gifted academically and athletically. He simply can't keep up with them. They're even better at bike-riding. As a result, he doesn't want to participate in sports. If on a rare occasion he plays with the girls he has to win and becomes very upset if he doesn't. He's making a habit out of feeling bad about himself.

It didn't surprise me it was him. Although such had never crossed my mind, it was, of course, just the kind of thing that he would do.

A word from UGA Extension

This article is an effort to help those who want to keep the diseases away before they become a problem! It is very similar to an article I wrote last year but this one comes at a time when you can prevent diseases (which is much easier) rather than fight existing issues.
