I don’t have children, yet. But in the past year I’ve helped welcome
seven babies into the world. I've watched as my family and friends
adjusted, some better than others, to this new addition in their lives.
Many new parents say the first year is often the toughest one -
physically, mentally and financially.
GUIDE TO PROVIDING SMARTLY FOR A
New Canadian mothers are entitled to
15 weeks of pregnancy leave after giving birth. After that, there’s an
additional 35 weeks of parental that either parent can take.
although the stay-at-home parent can collect employment Insurance
benefits, provided they qualify, they amount to only a portion of Mom or
Dad's previous full-time salary. Last week,
a federal board ruled that
parents of twins can each receive EI benefits for full parental leaves.
At the same time your household income drops, your expenses are rising.
The first year of a child’s life is usually one of the priciest, costing
the average parents upwards of $8,000 in extra expenses.
expecting a bundle of joy in the near future, check out this
calculator for a detailed list of what items baby will need and how much
they could set you back. Keep in mind the information is in U.S. dollars
and that American parents, who head back to work much earlier, pay for
day care or a nanny for most of that first year.
Outside of child care, there are plenty of necessary baby items that can
certainly add up: crib, playpen, bassinet, changing table, baby bath and
car seat, to name a few.
You’ll pay more for additional usage of
utilities like electricity and water - just think of all that additional
laundry - as well as clothing and food.
Babycenter.ca has some good tips for new parents looking to cut costs in
the first year. When it comes to furniture, for example, their advice is
to make a list of what you really need. You can find a sturdy new crib
for around $250. Of course, you can also find one for $1,250. But don’t
assume a higher price tag means a safer product. All cribs have to meet
the same government safety standards.
When you’re looking at cribs, consider one that adapts as your child
grows, converting from a crib to a toddler bed to a day bed. That can
save you money down the road.
Viewpoints.com and eBay.ca are two sites
that offer reviews and price comparisons for a variety of makes and
You can also post a request for items on local parenting sites
or on Craigslist.ca.
Often times people only use or need baby items for
a few months and then they’re ready to get rid of it at a fraction of
the original price.
For the 75 (seriously) or so diapers that new parents are changing a
week, consider signing up at diaper manufacturers' websites to get
coupons – every little bit helps for these necessary purchases.
Babies “R” Us offer coupons periodically on a variety of basic baby
items, including diapers. Just sign up at the store to receive coupons
by mail or online for promo codes. It’s also a good idea to list some of
the basics on your baby registry, so that your friends and family can
pitch in on big-ticket items like a car seat, stroller, and high chair.
Another option for cost-savings is to consider going the cloth diaper
route. Cloth diapers have come a long way but they certainly aren’t for
everyone. You’ll have to weigh the pros and cons. From a financial
standpoint, you will save money using cloth over disposable. However,
keep in mind that to save money you need to wash the cloth diapers
yourself instead of sending them to a laundering service.
One of the best ways to save on baby items is to ask for hand-me-downs
from friends with older kids.
Five out of the seven new babies I know
are girls. They rotate clothes, toys and baby gear. This especially
makes sense for age-specific gear like baby swings and bumbos, things a
baby outgrows quickly and then end up collecting dust in the basement.
TAX DEDUCTION, CRDITS AND BENEFITS
FROM CANDIAN GOVERNMENT FOR PROVIDING FOR YOUR BABY...
Another way to offset the costs of raising a child is to take advantage
of some of the tax deductions, tax credits, and other benefits offered
by the federal and provincial governments.
You may not qualify for all
of these, but you’ll certainly be eligible for some.
Make sure to apply
as early as you can, as it takes time to process the applications.
The Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) is a government program that
gives Canadian families $100 (pre-tax) each month for each child under
the age of six. Although it was designed to help cover child care costs,
your baby does not need to be in a daycare for you to receive this
benefit. However, you do need to fill out an application in order to
receive the payment.
New parents should also look into the Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB),
which is aimed at low and middle-income families. The amount is based on
the age and number of children, family income, and child care expenses.
Benefits are paid monthly and are non-taxable. There is a basic benefit
for each child under 18. Check out
this website or call 1-800-387-1193
for more information.
You may be able to deduct child care expenses from your income
you’re filling out your tax return, so make sure to keep receipts for
your child care expenses—from nannies to nursery schools, day and
overnight camps. The Canada Revenue
Agency site site has more information on

Or, organize a get together once a month for the new
parents you know, to check in and see how everyone is managing and what
they’re learning. And, it’s a great opportunity to swap some of that old
baby stuff you have lying around and take home some new items.

Commandments for parenting
GEOMESITC By NOWLEDGE
BASE (Oct 25, 2009)
1. You have to be consistent while parenting and do what you say you
will. Children are aware how far they can go when you are unfailing and
mean when you say.
2. Children must be made to contribute, with and no extra payment.
Children may not do it happily but they must help out at home. Ask
yourself the question as to what your children are doing and if others
depend on it?
3. Be encouraging all the time and keep in mind that with praise and
encouragement children perform better as compared to punishment and
criticism. Don’t be a critic but a support for your child. With
encouragement a child is able to connect his confidence with the process
and not just the result of their work.

responsibility on whom it should be and treat children as you want them
to behave. When you wish for capable and responsible children, treat
them as responsible individuals. You have to give responsibility to
children for them to develop responsibility.
5. Typically youngsters and children can see just one aspect of things
and you must take what they say with some salt. This is not lying, but
children have the tendency to exaggerate or view things from their point
6. Children must be showered with love and care to your children and say
you love them a minimum of once in a day. They will feel more confident
to know that they are loved whatever their age.
7. See to it that your children are behaving well and be attentive
towards their positive behavior as compared to the negative ones. Things
which you focus on will expand and if you concentrate on good behavior,
it will grow. Let children explain what they have done so that your
children also realize their good behavior and continue with it.
8. Children should be made independent from the start or from the age
they can manage. Don’t do things for the child which h can do himself
regularly as this will help them grow. Your job is to support them.
9. Draw boundaries and limits for children, some pushing will be
expected from them. It is essential for children to live within limits
and this also makes them feel cared for and secure.
10. Be lighthearted when you deal with children as this will assist you
see things in a perspective. This may seem implausible sometimes but
remember they will grow up soon and be out of bothering you all the
or perhaps the most vital commandment is that you must play a good
role model for the children. This will display to children as to how
they should behave, communicate as well as live their lives. Your
actions are very important as children learn from you.
You will have wonderful time parenting if you follow these commandments
and for more information you can check put Michael’s Parent
, Parent Coaching programs and workshops.
