I am Canadian and I don't know anyone who does NOT take their shoes off in the house. When I wear my shoes in the house, it is always to run in and grab something quickly, as Kayli said. If my daughter wears her shoes in the house, I always tell her to go and take them off. When we go to someone's house, we automatically take our shoes off and it is VERY rare for someone to tell us to leave them on.
I'd like to add on about the picky eaters. Be sure your kiddo is good and hungry at meal time. Cut them off of snacks well before the next meal so that they are hungry. You'll be surprised how they will go for what is on their plates if they are hungry enough. I also do agree with Kayli and Colette though... try not to stress out about it. Don't put too much pressure on them to eat if they are being picky, in fact, make them feel like they are missing out! My paediatrician told me (although my daughter was not a picky eater at all, she did kind of go off food when she was sick) "I promise, she is not going to starve herself - just make sure there are healthy choices available for when she will eat".
When my son was 3 all he wanted was peanut butter. To the point I took him to the doctor. And he just said it has everything he needed nutritionally and to not worry he would grow out of it and want something else.
We dont wear shoes in our house. I never wore shoes in my moms house or even my gmas house you just take off your shoes. We have a friend who also doesnt want peoole to wear shoes in her house it just seems kinda normal thing.
I think the shoe thing is a regional thing. I live in Ontario and we have friends just across the border in New York State. We always take off our shoes here, and when we visit them they look at us like we have two heads when we take off our shoes. When they come here, they don't take off their shoes and it is totally a rude thing to do here. Whenever people wear shoes in my house, I can't stop thinking about how I have to wash all the floors later, lol.
Shoes in the house are definitely a culture thing! I always push for no shoes. Not only for cleanliness, but also for structural development. I used to nanny for a family who wore shoes alllll day long. Their 2 year old would even wear them when napping, and it drove me crazy! I have a degree in Dance (lots of kinesiology) and shoes can cause lots of structural damage to growing babies/toddlers/kids over time. I'm planning on mine only wearing them when absolutely necessary
I live in Canada and we always take our shoes off in the house - it's considered rude not to. We also categorize Americans as people who leave their shoes on in the house - and find it very strange!! lol
If your feet get cold just wear extra cozy socks and slippers. I just don't get how you would live wearing your shoes inside. Like, in the morning when you get up out of bed, would you just then put on shoes that you'd wear outside?!
I think the shoe thing is something American 😁 im Germany and here, its RARE that you can keep some on in someones House. I also saw this in American Movies, that even keep on their shoes when they randomly lay on their bed during the day🤣and im like HUH?!🤣 and I found it crazy how clean you guys can keep things so clean With shoes on, when i have the hardest Time keeping things clean With shoes off yet a doggy that sheds 9 outta 12 months 😜
GREAT FOOD IDEAS! THANK YOU
It’s always been normal to take my shoes off inside despite living in Michigan. My dad’s side of the family always leave their shoes on, and my mom’s side takes their shoes off. My mom continued it from my grandma who’s a neat freak. It definitely keeps the house cleaner. I can’t stand having shoes on in the house now lol. Plus, feet need to breathe!
I live in the south, and I don’t know anyone that allows shoes in the house. I think it’s totally a culture thing. My dad walks on the carpet to his recliner to take his boots off and it drives my mother crazy! 😂
The shoe thing might be a country thing. I'm from Canada, and I have never ever been to someones home where they left their shoes on. And I would lose my mind if someone walked through my house with theirs on haha! I've only seen it on Youtube or movies/TV and I always just assumed it was the places where they have nicer weather and don't have to worry as much about salt/snow, dirt/mud. IDK
As far as the food question unless your child has special needs or some extreme disorder or aversion to food then kids will eat what you give them. They will not starve to death it takes up to 21 times to tolerate a food. Keep giving food to children <3 love you guys
I have people who come over to my house and don’t take their shoes off, and it absolutely makes me CRINGE. It feels as though that person has a complete disregard for tracking dirt/filth throughout my house. Especially when it’s on carpet.
Y’all are so nice, my parents would make me stay at the table until I cleared my plate 😳 There was no such thing as being a picky eater at my house. They’d always say to me “this isn’t a restaurant” Whatever my parents made that day, is what we ate 😂
It is usually a cultural thing, lots of asian countries don't wear shoes in the house. Here in Alaska, we have snow on the ground a majority of the time and I don't want to have snow tracked all over the house with my big snow boots. It is pretty common here for there to be a pile of shoes by the front door when you go to a party at a friend's house 😂
Colette you're so right on, sometimes the best time spent for ourselves is quality time investing in our kids. It can be draining but filling at the same time. They have alot to offer us and we often overlook them. Thanks for your ideas!
It's funny how grossed out people are by shoes inside. So many Americans wear their shoes inside, and I've never heard of an American specific illness due to the practice. It doesn't seem worth the tedium.
I usually take my shoes off unless I'm quickly going in to grab something but I always do if it has been raining and my shoes have gotten dirty. I had my brother and his friends come over and before I could tell them to take their shoes off they tracked mud all across my floor to the couch while I was going !!! I mean, mud, man :P THINK OF THE MUD
In my country it’s a cultural thing to take shoes off inside. Even in schools kids have to bring clean shoes to wear inside. They would kick kids out without spare shoes. In the house you will not be welcome with shoes on, you won’t pass the doormat with shoes on. It’s gross. I mean people pee and spit, animals poop outside and you bring all that in your beloved home??? Ew. Plus we take shoes off not just because of dirt but because your feet need a rest. I don’t even wear shoes at work, only outside.
I grew up in Canada.you do take you shoes off at the front door. I always thought it was because winters are so wet springs are so muddy... but it's just respect to help with cleanlyness.8 raised my kids here in idaho but we do take our shoes off in our house just because thats how I grew up but not all friends did and that's ok!
With the toddler not eating (I struggled with that too) I would make a different new meal every night so he can taste new things constantly and then when he likes something, I write it down. I also agree with making the food cute and fun. Thankfully my son will do the “polite bite”.
I’m huge on the consistency of food so I can only imagine how some kids are and can’t explain why they don’t like it. Maybe the like scrambled eggs and not hard boiled. Just keep trying new things and in different ways :)
Ladies, you should read the book “The Child Whisperer” by Carol Tuttle. It helps you to understand your child’s nature, how they think and process things, how they act and react and how to communicate with them and their individual needs. It’s a game changer 😊
I feel like its an american thing with the shoes. My mom grew up wearing shoes in the house, but when she married my dad who's jamaican, she switched to taking shoes off at the door. growing up, most of my friends were immigrants, but looking back, all of my nonimmigrant friends and wore shoes indoors too! but i never thought much about it, talk about code switching!
It's an American thing to wear shoes inside your house. I cant stand it. We do not wear our shoes inside the house here. Well in general theres the odd exception, but most other countries don't wear shoes inside. Im from Canada for most people its rude to wear your shoes inside the house. Some people don't mind but ew those people lol
You can see the difference in homes that have had people walking around in outdoor shoes inside, the flooring is in terrible shape. I saw a show where they showed what shoes have on them and what you bring into your home if you keep your shoes on.
Fuzzy socks, people! I live in America. Take your nasty ass shoes off. Lol. It’s so gross! I always take my shoes off in everyone’s house. I always have a pedicure or fuzzy nice socks on. It’s a respect thing. I respect everyone’s home and I respect my own. Maybe people from Idaho are different 🤷🏼♀️
Everyone I ever knew growing up and people I know now wear shoes in the house. I never even knew there were people that would request you take your shoes off in their house until I started watching vlogs on youtube.
I'm currently volunteering with Peace Corps in China and everyone takes their shoes off here. I've definitely had to get used to that, but even in my own apartment I've implemented this rule (although I fail sometimes) because it's very common for people to spit on the ground and also a lot of toilets are squatty potties here so the feet tend to be closer to the toilet. For me, it's a matter of health to take my shoes off after I've been outside.
Ok, after reading through these comments I feel like I HAVE to add my 2 cents..I am Canadian too (like many other people commenting) but we DO wear shoes in our house lol I didn’t realize it was considered Canadian to take them off 🤷🏻♀️😂 if I go to someone else’s house though I will follow their lead and I always take off my shoes it they do.
I have two questions. First question: I'm afraid that I don't know what my love language is and that makes me so sad. Do you have any advice on how I can figure out or discover my love language? Second question: Kayli - will you share your hair color formula? I love your color and want my hair colorist to duplicate it on me.
you can take the test but you can also ask yourself how YOU tend to show people affection. Usually we instinctively do it the way we ourselves want to be loved. For example if gift giving is your love language. you will not necessarily sit around waiting for someone to give you a present, but you might be giving a lot of presents to other people. Or you might be someone who needs appreciation and words of affirmation, but you show it by always lifting others up with your words. hope this helps!
You guys should do little ''Toddler Meals'' ideas . My daughter is one and I cannot think of good meals to put together for her that is safe for her to eat. She has a mouth full of teeth but I still am refraining from giving her to much meats right now because of the choking fear lol! HELP!
Here in Canada, at least Western, you definitely take your shoes off... It's considered very rude to not in someone else's home! And, we teach our children to take shoes off at the front door in our own home too. It's kind of gross if you don't, Ha!
I’m from the US and we don’t wear shoes in the house. We have a shoe rack right by the front door and everyone must take their shoes off. There’s nothing I dislike more than stepping in water, that someone’s tracked in on the carpet, with socks on my feet.
I think wearing shoes indoors is very much a cultural thing. Here in Canada, I never see anyone wear shoes indoors (unless they’re American! Haha) I’ve visiting many homes in the U.S. where wearing shoes indoors is common. Here it would definitely be considered rude 😊
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
