Punishment vs reinforcement

Some days, it feels like all we do as parents is discipline our children, but do we understand what discipline really means? The goal of disciplining children is not to punish them for bad behavior. Rather, discipline is a tool to get the behavior we want. Ultimately, children who receive discipline become disciplined in the way they think, act and speak. Discipline is a good thing, so long as it's not always about punishment.

Southern Baptists boost marriage but reach out to gays

Meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, last week, leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission stood firm on their belief that marriage, as defined by God in the Bible, is reserved for a union of one man and one woman. At the same time, the ERLC and other Baptist leaders made overtures to opponents, meeting privately with several key pro-gay marriage evangelicals.

A fall full of fungi

My students often ask me if the items we find in the woods are edible. I answer in the affirmative, explaining that anything they can fit down their esophagus is edible. The question is whether the item of interest will kill you. I get asked this a lot about mushrooms. Members of this kingdom are especially difficult to identify, and for every safe species, there is another, almost identical species that could be deadly. And so it is my standard practice to avoid consumption of any mushroom I find outside of the supermarket shelf.

Moving forward

This is being written prior to Tuesday night's election returns, so with results unknown, we can only voice our hope that following the tallying of the votes, this country's leaders will do more to move the nation forward than they have in the past. The constant wrangling of past years has left voters irritated and worried about the direction of the United States. Indeed, a national news story noted that despite some good signs -- including an economy that's improving, though slowly, and gas prices below $3 a gallon for the first time in four years -- there is ...

Now the rubber meets the road

November 4 is past, and statewide elections have been decided. As I have discussed in earlier columns, I am always intrigued, and even a little amused, with the amount of rhetoric that is aimed at education during election time. Now that the votes have been cast, there are a lot of important educational issues hanging in the air that will need to be resolved by newly elected office holders. The decisions made will have significant and lasting impact.
