Raising Kids to Believe in Gender Equality

Everywhere you look there are issues of gender equality: the thousands of protesters rallying against the pay gap, the lack of paternity leave for fathers, the messages displayed on our children’s clothing. It’s no wonder our kids grow up believing boys don’t cry and girls have little else to aspire to than achieving a perfect appearance. On the whole, our interpretation of gender is rooted in socially constructed ideas that can be harmful or limiting to children. Considering most kids form … [Read more...]

Safe Driving Tips for Winter

Fall is being left behind and winter coming into full force, and who is not overcome by this season’s romance? Certainly, stores set out to draw in shoppers with material desires, but the landscape too is turning, evolving past the browns and golds, the oranges and reds that are so poetically picturesque, and refining those colors into something more elegant – a colder beauty that appeals aesthetically and yet also compels us to seek comfort indoors, turning on the heating and curling up, snug … [Read more...]

Five factors stopping you from reaching your goals

In life, we all have goals or dreams that we aspire to. Women face more challenges than most.

While it’s just not fair that there are a lot of extra challenges in your way, … [Read more...]

Maintaining a Hygienic Home with Cats

In a world where working hours are becoming longer and longer, it’s not always practical or kind to have a dog. Dogs need a considerable amount of time, both in exercise and human contact and interaction. Cats, on the other hand, need these a little less. That’s not to say a cat is definitely the best pet to have if you work long hours (they still need their humans around a fair amount; that fishing app for felines wasn’t created for nothing), but they are certainly preferable as companion pets … [Read more...]

What to Look Forward to as You Grow Older

While for many, the advance of age can be something to shock and scare, it is really all a matter of perspective. Getting older doesn’t have to be a miserable experience - in fact, having a miserable attitude about it will only increase the chances that it becomes so. A self-fulfilling prophecy, if you will. Your attitude can really make all the difference, and if you look on the bright side and remind yourself of the positive aspects of growing older continually, you’re going to enjoy the whole … [Read more...]
