Why parents shouldn’t lie about pet's passing

It seems absurd to some. We adopt them and call them our babies. We let them sleep in our beds and some even dress them up in sweaters or raincoats to protect them from cold weather chills. → Read More

The crucial cost of cutting free play for kids

On a recent visit to the small Texas town of Amarillo, I attended the World Championship Ranch Rodeo - a global gathering of the nation’s best working ranch cowboys.

Don’t get spooked by teen trick-or-treaters

There’s nothing more annoying than opening your door at 10 p.m. on Halloween night to find a group of shifty teens on your doorstep, dressed in street clothes and coaxing for candy. But while the late-night, lackadaisical loot-luring is less than appealing, it certainly isn’t worth implementing a preventative law as a result. → Read More

According to recent headlines, letting your kids walk to school on their own puts them in harm’s way. → Read More

Quit complaining about school supplies list

It’s back to school time and Facebook is blowing up with memes, videos, and whiny posts about the school supplies lists that are pestering parents as September approaches. → Read More

It wasn’t until the recent anti-racism rally in Vancouver that I more carefully considered how much I wanted to tell to my young children about all that is happening in the world, and whether or not it would be worthwhile to involve them in the events that ensue as a result. → Read More

A lesson all parents can learn from Swift’s mom

When I worked in a bar during my college years, it wasn’t uncommon for inebriated imbeciles to grope my rear, or comment on my cleavage as I tried to wiggle past their overly-crowded tables to place their orders. → Read More

Time to start teaching kids how to ‘adult'

There’s nothing I love more than holding my child’s hand as we stroll down the street, so when my oldest dropped my hand and ran ahead at school drop off for the first time, I felt a little hurt. → Read More

'Don’t talk to strangers' not enough

A series of child abduction social experiments were conducted and shared through social media by YouTube sensation Joey Salads, and the results have parents second-guessing their methods when it comes to educating their kids about “stranger danger”. → Read More

It’s easy to make excuses for not voting - especially as a parent. → Read More

Just let toys be toys

Parents need to cut down on screen time too

As my oldest child rambled on about her school day happenings, I shifted my eyes from her face to the screen of my iPhone, swiping my thumb across its surface while muttering, “Oh nice..” and “Mhmm, that sounds interesting…” → Read More
