Remembrance Day – Families Changed

Every year for the Rispin family Remembrance Day is significant. We are a one of many Canadian families which got the boots laid to them in the First an Second World wars. I have always appreciated the significance of my family’s contribution to Canada’s role in these wars but never so much as I do […]

What Is Traditional Parenting

As my readership increases, I have been questioned on a number of occasions about what my definition of Old School Parenting was and it struck me that there is a number of misconceptions out there about what it means to be an Old School Parent.

Christmas – Disappoint Your Child This Season

I love Christmas, I truly do. It is perhaps my favourite 2 days of the year. I even like the lead up to Christmas. I love Christmas shopping, Christmas parties, decorating, the music, the food and most of all coming together with family and friends… It is just a great time of year. Now some […]
