I’ve worked with hundreds of parents and their children over the years, and I sometimes run into my clients outside of the office while out in public. Interestingly parents of younger children (say age 12 or less) are happy to walk right up to me when this happens. They say hello to me beaming with smiles and if their kids are with them, strike up random conversation and banter.
Arsenic in rice products is a concern not only for adults, but for babies as well. In this article published in the Globe and Mail, the facts are laid out: “There’s a growing body of evidence that even relatively low levels of exposure may have adverse health impacts on young children including on growth, immunity and neurodevelopment.”
My husband came home from work about a month ago declaring he needed a vacation. I agreed that I could use a get-away and we quickly started scouring the internet for last-minute vacation deals to a hot and tropical destination.

My sons have been running summer lemonade stands for years. Their first was on Canada Day 2005 when they were ages four and one. There were no signs, just two very little kids sitting at a green IKEA table, the top scattered with paper cups, a pitcher of over-iced, weak lemonade, and a jar of change on the ground beside the bright blue chairs. It was incredibly hot and for an hour I stood holding an umbrella over their heads. Still, sales weren’t big that day but they did learn a valuable lesson in marketing.
