Minefield Of Parenting Bloggers: Can You Take The Heat?

| Posted 10.02.2012 | Canada British Columbia

Hell hath no fury like mom bloggers on a warpath, as Calgary DJ and blogger Buzz Bishop learned when he mentioned he has a favourite child. I am not going to bother too much weighing in on the response. What it does highlight is the minefield that personal and parental blogging can be. Words can hurt so every time I think about a new topic for my blog, I wonder: Am I strong enough to take the heat from those that may disagree with me? Controversy might give you lots of hits, but are you tough enough?

What Are We Doing Wrong About Bullying?

| Posted 10.13.2012 | Canada British Columbia

I think it is safe to say that the anti-bullying campaigns and the pink shirt days are not working. Once again we have a tormented teen who could only see one way out of her struggle and that was taking her own life. It is time to rethink how we are handling this whole "bullying" thing. As a parent of two school-age children, I have a feeling that the definition of "bully" has been lost in translation.
