John Rosemond is the nation’s leading parenting expert and provides common-sense advice for raising your children. John is a nationally syndicated columnist, author and public speaker, delivering over 200 presentations annually to parents, teachers and professional groups. His audiences are left feeling empowered, educated and entertained.

A family psychologist by license, John points out to all his audiences that “psychology has caused more problems than it has solved for American parents.” John’s mission is to be a counter-weight to the psychological parenting paradigm that was sold to America in the late 1960s/early 1970s, restore commonsense to the raising of children, and give parents the guidance needed to raise happy, well-mannered children who will, as adults, contribute value to culture and society.

Because I Said So! 2.6.2016


[This episode originally aired 2.6.2016]

  • John responds to a doctor who contacted the show saying that the Bible is not "truth" and that John is wrong to point people to Biblical counselors.  Not surprising, John holds a different view.
  • John answers an email from the mother of a 4-year-old who has had problems with painful constipation in the past and who now refuses to use the toilet.
  • John dives into another potty-related problem presented by the mother of a 21-month-old who is trying to potty-train her child using a method she read about in John's book, Toilet Training Without Tantrums.
  • John fields a question from a parent who says her 4 1/2-year-old son can be delightful when he is with anyone other than the parents.  Under their supervision, he throws tantrums and won't do what they ask him to do.
