Paradise Is Lake Placid Family / Huffington Post

Busy families looking to unwind, unplug and undo their daily demands will instantly appreciate the aptly titled Lake Placid, with calm waters showcasing a shoreline dotted with “Great Camps”, built in a bygone era when wealthy families in the New York City area hauled their families up north to escape from the city heat and bask in the beautiful mountains of the Adirondacks. The town...

If You Think Having Three Kids Is Hard, Try Four, Five and Six Family / Huffington Post

One of my favourite lines from the The Simpsons is when Bart complains he is having the worst day of his life. “So far,” responds his unsympathetic yet correctly predictive father, Homer. I liken that to a study by Today.com that suggests three is the most stressful number of children to have. A mom of three explains that the stress level increases when it comes...

Lean In? How about Fall Down? Family / Huffington Post

Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, is encouraging women to “Lean In” to their careers, with her book of the same name. Essentially she is tackling the age-old dilemma of how women should compete in a “man’s world.” She argues that unless women approach a relentless pursuit of success at the office, we will never be able to achieve equality at home, both in...

Why Every Family Needs a Mission Statement Family / Huffington Post

The next time you visit a corporate website, look at the “About Us” page. Most feature a mission statement, a few sentences or paragraphs that tell the world at large what the company does and what it wants to accomplish. I have a theory about mission statements. I believe that they came to be as a result of countless CEOs asking countless versions of the...

Gone Girl…All The Way To Bermuda Family / Huffington Post

Sun, spa, and shopping. The perfect Girls Getaway trifecta can be found on the island of Bermuda. Only 26 square miles in area, this (northern) Caribbean destination is a quick trip from Toronto but a long, long way from the routine of kids, work and making dinner. Bermuda has two distinct precincts: Hamilton and St. George’s. Hamilton offers up restaurants, high street shopping, and a...

My Love/Love Relationship With My BlackBerry Family / Huffington Post

They really should launch the new BlackBerry on February 14 instead of January 30. Here’s why, at least for me. For reasons I can’t explain, PeeWee Herman and, in particular, his show, PeeWee’s Playhouse, has always held great appeal for me. Fans of the show (back me up here!) know that if PeeWee had had a BlackBerry, he would have married it — just like...

Annoying Parenting Trends That Must Be Stopped Family / Huffington Post

Another year gone by, another year filled with annoying parenting trends. Here are some fads I’d like to see disappear by the end of 2013: 1) Trophies for all: This one has been around for a while. We are raising our kids in a generation of “everybody wins and nobody loses” and what this does is make losers of us all. Without experiencing losing, kids...

Why Can I Recharge My Gadgets But Not Myself? Family / Huffington Post

As a mother of four children, at any given time there are a multitude of electronic units recharging themselves in my house. Between BlackBerrys, iPhones, hand held gaming units, video cameras, digital cameras, toothbrushes, and the occasional ill-advised noisy toy, our outlets are jam packed with cords leading to devices we had no idea we needed before we acquired them. Sort of like children, I...

Why St Lucia Is Hot With Travelers (Heat Aside) Family / Huffington Post

With average temperatures ranging between in the 80s and 90s, St. Lucia has long been a destination for sun seekers. But those who come for the sun and sand find that there is much more to this beautiful West Indies island. For those who tire of lounging at soft sandy beaches, gazing at the Pitons, two photogenic mountains, and dipping occasionally into the Caribbean Sea,...
