Controversial column

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- John Rosemond has been dispensing parenting advice in his newspaper column since 1976, making him one of the longest-running syndicated columnists in the country. But some Kentucky authorities want to put him in a time out.

In May, Kentucky's attorney general and its Board of Examiners of Psychology told Rosemond his parenting column - which regularly offers old-school advice and shows little tolerance for any kind of parental coddling - amounts to the illegal practice of psychology.
