Teaching Children to be Good People – A chat with Annie Fox

I had the opportunity to have a chat a while back with with Annie Fox, an educator, novelist, radio host and  allround bright light in the world of parenting, about her book Teaching Children to be Good People. Being the curmudgeon I am, I just had to take the opportunity to ask a few Eeyoresque […]

Titanium Dioxide On Your Donut… MMMM Good?

Did you know your child’s favourite donut might be covered with Titanium Dioxide? Ok… Perhaps “covered” is a wee bit alarmist but TiO2 HAS been found in the sugar covering donuts. I wasn’t aware of this until 4 days ago. The same stuff used in paints, vinyl compounds, enamels, plastics, specialty papers, inks, and other […]

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.

Swiss Army Knife – Child’s Play

Ah the Swiss army knife. The ultimate utility tool. Knife, bottle opener, corkscrew, tweezers, screwdriver, pry bar, saw, stick sharpener, bug dissection tool… The list of uses is endless. I have had one close at hand for as long as I can remember. I was given one as a kid and in my list of life’s […]

Narcissists Among Us

Up until this past week, I don’t think have used the word Narcissism more than a handful of times. Of course I knew what it meant (kinda) but it is just never entered my vernacular.  Calling someone a Narcissist wasn’t nice, especially a child.
