How You’re Still Leaning In, Even if You’re an ‘Opt-Out’ Mom

Ten years ago, the phrase “opting out” became a part of the lexicon, due mostly to a New York Times op-ed piece called “The Opt-Out Revolution,” written by Lisa Belkin about the growing trend of women dropping out of high powered careers in order to stay at home with their families. Flash-forward a decade, and many of these women are finding themselves in a position,...

Bored With the Gym? Go to Squamish

Squamish easily earns its title as “Canada’s Outdoor Recreation Playground” with the many elements that provide a natural workout for this very active community.

Kate Middleton’s New Mom Experience Will Never Be Ordinary

Prince George has arrived.

Blue Mountain: For the “Chill” and the Challenge

Blue Mountain Village is a well-known destination for Ontario’s skiers and snowboarders during the winter season, but the warmer months offer up terrific activities for friends looking for a getaway that combines physical beauty with physical activity. The expansion of their outdoor challenges is most notably embodied by Timber Ropes, which opened in 2012, as a tougher cousin to the Woodlot low ropes course. This...

If You Think Having Three Kids Is Hard, Try Four, Five and Six

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...

Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, is encouraging women to “Lean In” to their careers, with her book of the same name.

Why Every Family Needs a Mission Statement

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...

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.
