Now that so much of the world’s business has shifted online, we must prepare children to learn how to present themselves in important online meetings in their casual home environment.

Through the last seven months and continuing on for the indefinite future, a majority of meetings are held online using video conferencing platforms like Zoom. These meetings could be interviews with talent representatives, callbacks, or producer’s sessions for casting purposes and even table reads once a job is booked. One of the challenges that face people, especially children, is the comfort and casual nature of being in their own home. There’s no one to impress with nicer clothing.

California Law Mandates HR Employee Training to Child Abuse

On September 29, 2020, the Governor signed Assembly Bill 1963 which amends Section 11165.7 of the Penal Code, relating to mandated reporters of child abuse.

History suggests Justin Trudeau’s national child care proposal is already doomed. Could Doug Ford be its saviour?

Repeating the same behaviour usually leads to the same outcome. If that maxim were to hold true in the case of the latest federal bid to preside over the creation of a national child-care program, the project could be dead on arrival.

Here is why:

It is not a lack of federal interest that accounts for Canada’s patchwork approach to child-care and early childhood education.

Since the mid-eighties, every prime minister — with the notable exception of Stephen Harper — has, at one time or another, had child-care on the agenda.

Over Brian Mulroney’s first term, legislation to implement the embryo of a program was actually passed in the House of Commons. It died in the Senate in the lead-up to the 1988 election and was not resuscitated afterwards.

A national child-care program figured prominently in Jean Chrétien’s 1993 platform, the Liberal Red Book. It subsequently became a casualty of

Mutual Funds vs FD: When it comes to investment post-marriage, child investment plan is the most common tool that comes to one’s mind. However, if we go by the experts’ views, while investing, one needs to look at the returns and the rate of inflation. If the returns are higher than inflation, then only one will be able to meet one’s investment goal. Same rule needs to be applied while investing in child education planning. Generally, people invest in traditional insurance or bank fixed deposit (FD) for child education.
