Big Picture Parenting: In this thought-provoking presentation, parenting author Ann Douglas will discuss the advantages of taking a big-picture approach to parenting (parenting with your hopes and dreams for your children and your family in mind). She will discuss the importance of tuning into your child’s needs, being mindful of your parenting decisions, building relationships with other parents, and practicing self-care. Expect a compelling mix of practical advice and lively anecdotes from this popular and engaging speaker.

The Baby Show is "Ottawa's most comprehensive and informative prenatal, baby, and toddler event." It is being held at the Ottawa Convention Centre. Be sure to drop by Ann's booth to pick up copies of her parenting tip sheets.
