Majority of BC parents are not prepared for the costs of raising kids
Parental leave. Day care. Soccer. Braces. Summer camp. College. When young couples think about starting a family, the first expenses that come to mind are often parental leave and childcare. While these early costs can certainly impact household finances, the cost of raising children doesn’t stop there. While growing children can sometimes mean growing costs, there are steps parents can take early on to ensure they aren’t caught off guard. Crystal Wong from TD Canada Trust will join me to talk about it.
Parenting introverts & extroverts + Growing our strengths vs. fixing our weaknesses
Heather Clayton, Director of Learning at St. Michael’s University School joins me to explore Marcus Buckingham’s ideas on finding and playing to our strengths. What does that look like across the grades and into early adulthood? And what do we make of his belief that weaknesses should be managed, not strengthened?
Plus, we’ll talk about introverts vs extroverts. Are those titles so rigid? Or do we fall somewhere in between? When much of education and socialization favours extroverts, how do we support our kids where they are at? See a list of Heather Clayton’s upcoming seminars here.
