Parenting & Relationships
 

May 17, 2021

 
Huge thanks to all those who filled out our survey last week! If you haven’t had a chance, please take a minute to answer a few questions so we can improve this newsletter.

This week we talk to experts about whether children should be vaccinated now when others are in greater need, and we pick out some award-winning kids’ shows and films you won’t mind streaming together. On Tuesday night Globe Craft Club learned to make a tiny bowl and spoon, and you can catch up on the video and find out more about our next class, baking with Raufikat Oyawoye, winner of Season 4 of The Great Canadian Baking Show.

Please share this newsletter, and if it was forwarded to you visit our signup page to subscribe to this and other Globe and Mail newsletters. Lori Fazari
