Luxury on Lake Simcoe

Orchard Orchard Point Point Harbour Harbour brings brings upscale upscale condo condo living living to to cottage cottage country country

As idyllic as the cottage lifestyle may seem, in reality it is often fraught with frustrations such as property upkeep, seasonal maintenance or access only by minimally maintained or seasonal roads. For this reason cottage country condominiums have quickly become popular, offering all the pleasures of the lakeside lifestyle without the hassles. Orchard Point Harbour, located at the Narrows between Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching in Orillia, is a prime example of this growing trend. Poised on 500 ft. of pristine waterfront, Orchard Point Harbour seamlessly blends the traditional elements of cottaging; the natural setting, tranquility and relaxation, with the comforts and conveniences one would expect from an upscale urban residence. Such comforts include a fitness centre located at the water’s edge complete with a pool, hot tub, sauna and yoga studio as well as a rooftop terrace offering unparalleled views of Lake Simcoe, perfect for relaxing or entertaining. Boaters will appreciate the on-site Starport Marina, making it easy to explore Lake Simcoe, Lake Couchiching and the TrentSevern Waterway. While Orchard Point Harbour’s location on a peninsula can make it feel like a private escape, the City of Orillia, with its charming boutiques, cafes, restaurants and medical facilities, is only minutes away by car or boat. Orillia’s surrounding area offers plenty of activities year-round, including numerous golf

courses, ski resorts, walking trails and parks. And for those looking for a lively night out, Casino Rama is five minutes away. When completed, Orchard Point Harbour will consist of two Muskoka-inspired condo buildings. Phase 1 of the development is sold out and fully occupied and Phase II, slated for occupancy in December 2017, is now over 60% sold. One and two bedroom suites range in size from 1000 to 2000-squarefeet and start at the mid-$300,000s. Each suite at Orchard Point Harbour combines luxury and ease with high quality features and finishes such as gourmet kitchens with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, and private terraces or balconies. For the ultimate in lakeside living, a limited selection of Penthouse and Lakeside suites are available that include upgraded features including premier kitchen cabinetry, 10-foot ceilings, a gas fireplace and much more. This is the perfect place for those looking to downsize from a large home or who are searching for a relaxing retreat just a short, one-hour drive from the GTA. And for those who spend their winters abroad, owning a condominium at Orchard Point Harbour offers a worry-free lock-and-leave solution.

Orchard Point Harbour is redefining the cottage lifestyle. For more information email sales@orchardpoint.ca or visit OrchardPoint.ca.

Independent & Trusted Investment Advice

Fathers of Today

Mary Rourke

Senior Investment Advisor

Most of us remember the television shows from the 1970s and 1980s that showed fathers in a supportive role to the mothers. Moms looked after all things child related and household related. Dads worked long hours, cut the grass and had a comfortable chair. That was then… now the image of Dad has changed.

905-503-4100

Fathers today are hands-on. They make school lunches, drive kids to soccer practice and do laundry. They take their kids to the doctor and help them with their homework. They dust, vacuum and do the grocery shopping. Some Dads make dinner and bake for school celebrations. Fathers share the role of parenting and housekeeper.

Some things have not changed for Dad. Most families do not spend as much on Dad on Father’s Day as they do on Mom for Mother’s Day. As a matter of fact, Dad didn’t even have a recognized day until 1972, while Mom has been celebrated since 1914. Since 1972, every third Sunday in June belongs to Dad.

Just as Dads’ roles have changed, so have their Father’s Day gifts. The patriarch of the family is no longer getting a tie or a shirt for their special day. They may still get handmade cards and finger-painted pictures from the little ones, but they are receiving more creative presents today than they did in the past.

Dads need pampering. The idea of sending Mom to a spa started to help alleviate some of the stresses mom experiences because of her daily routines. Dad needs stress relief too. While not every Dad is interested in a manicure or a pedicure, there are not many who will pass up the chance to have a massage or two.

Playtime is always welcome. Dads are usually up for a little playtime with their kids. Taking Dad to a family entertainment centre is always a great idea. There are many different games to play and some facilities even have indoor go-kart tracks. Dads love getting into the swing of things, especially when it includes Golf. There are not too many fathers who do not head out onto the links at least once a year. Investing in Dad’s golf game can involve a free round of golf, a couple of hours at a driving range or for those with a little more to spend, a season’s membership to a golf course.  For the outdoor Dads, money can’t buy happiness. Many would welcome spending time with their kids hiking, canoeing, boating or tossing around a ball. For the more adventurous fathers, there are outdoor centers that offer zip lining and tree top trekking. There are spots in Ontario that are great for exploring caves.

This Month IN HISTORY Famous Summer Events The summer months in Canada have long been celebrated because of warmer and sunnier days. After a long, cold winter, Canadians look forward to heading outdoors. June and July have been celebrated for many other reasons as well… many historically significant reasons. Below is a list of events that made headline history. It was on July 18, 1932 that Canada and the United States agreed to develop the St. Lawrence River into a seaway. The two countries signed The Great Lakes - St. Lawrence Deep Waterway Treaty. This monumental move meant that large ships would be able to pass from the Great Lakes through the St. Lawrence River into the Atlantic Ocean. It wasn’t until June 26, 1959 that the St. Lawrence Seaway was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth, Prime Minister John Diefenbaker and U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower. The construction of the 306 km stretch between Montreal and Lake Ontario was considered one of the most difficult engineering projects in North American history. The Saskatchewan Medical Care Insurance Act was another game changer in Canada. The act was introduced in 1961 in Saskatchewan’s legislature. It was Canada’s first provincially funded, universal health insurance system that would mean citizens were not hit with large medical bills every time they visited a doctor. The move outraged doctors who felt they should have been consulted about the Act. On July 1, 1962, the Medical Care Insurance

P O D I AT R I S T/ F O O T S P E C I A L I S T

Act in Saskatchewan took effect sparking a doctors’ strike in the province. Despite the controversy, the act led the way to public health-care in the rest of Canada. Canada made headlines again in 1969. It was July 20, 1969 when the US spacecraft Apollo 11 landed on the moon. What was Canada’s connection? The spacecraft was equipped with Canadian-built landing gear. In fact, Sarnia born Owen Maynard was the lead designer on the landing module for Apollo 11. Maynard was known for his work on the infamous Avro Arrow project. The summer of 1976 was busy for Canada. The country abolished the death penalty on July 14, 1976 after a very long struggle. The first serious debate about the death penalty was in 1966. Parliament argued a motion for abolition for days before it was rejected. In 1967, Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson’s government passed legislation that temporarily suspended the death penalty for crimes except the killing of a police officer. After a moratorium was passed and extended, the Trudeau government introduced Bill C-84 in 1976 that would abolish the death penalty. While the government debated the death penalty in Ottawa, down the St. Lawrence there were celebrations. The Olympic games opened on July 17, 1976 under tight security in Montreal. Throughout the games it was a Romanian gymnast who won the hearts of the world. Nadia Comaneci was the first woman in history to score a perfect 10 in an Olympic gymnastics event. Comaneci was 14 years old.

Are You Living With Sciatica Or Back Pain... When There Is A Non-Invasive, Drugless Solution? Having back and sciatic pain is a miserable – even crippling – condition. You might not be able to play golf, work, or even sit in the car for a 30-minute drive. It’s almost impossible for anyone around you to understand how you feel. You can’t remember the last time you even had a restful night’s sleep. Do You Have Any Of The Following? • • • • • •

Sharp pains in the back of the leg Lower Back Pain Herniated/bulging discs Numbness or soreness in your legs Shooting hip or thigh pain Muscle spasm, sprains & strains

You may have a condition called “Sciatica” if you’re suffering from any of these annoying conditions. Sciatica is a compression of the sciatic nerve, usually by an L4 or L5 disc herniation. Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally, but physically feeling held back from life because your back or sciatica hurts and the pain just won’t go away! Fortunately, if you are suffering from any of these problems, they may be relieved or eliminated with chiropractic adjustments.

“Chiropractor’s manipulation of the spine was more helpful than any of the following: traction, massage, biofeedback, acupuncture, injection of steroids into the spine and back corsets, and ultrasound.” -- Stanley Bigos, MD, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery This means in just a matter of weeks you could be back on the golf course, enjoying your love life or traveling again.

Feel the Improvement – and Say “Yes” to Life Again With my “Back Pain And Sciatica Evaluation” we’ll be able to find the problem and then correct it. Think of how you’ll feel in just a few short weeks. See and feel your life change for the better. Start your body on the way to pain-free, normal living. Feel tight joints rest, relax, free up. Feel muscles tied in knots become more supple. Feel strength in your muscles increase. As you begin to see motion returning to your joints, you’re preventing and reducing chances of disability and a crippling future.

The Single Most Important Solution To Your Sciatica and Back Pain It’s time for you to find out if chiropractic will be your sciatic and back pain solution.

“What’s The Chance This Will Work For Me?”

For 14 days only, $35 will get you all the services I normally charge new patients $220 for!

Chiropractic has been around for over a hundred years, and has been used to help everyone from tiny babies to the elderly.

What does this offer include? Everything I normally do in my new patient evaluation.

Even top sports stars and entertainers… like Sidney Crosby, Tom Brady, Emmitt Smith, Tony Robbins, Michael Jordan, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Wayne Gretzky. These professional athletes have the money to hire any kind of doctor they want, yet they choose to have a chiropractor on their team. Here’s what some of the top medical researchers had to say about chiropractic… “Manipulation [chiropractic adjustments], with or without exercise, improved symptoms more than medical care did after both 3 and 12 months.”– British Medical Journal

• •

An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case. A complete neuromuscular examination. A full set of specialized x-rays (NOTE: These would normally cost you at least $100). A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain-free.

I’ll provide answers to your questions, like… …the best nutritional supplements proven to help with joint problems.

Pain Shouldn’t Hold You Back From The Important Things In Life.

…which position, mattress, and pillow you should use for a good night’s rest. …the foods that can help you and which ones can make you worse. …how to exercise the right way so you aren’t making your pain worse.

Don’t Let Your Sciatica Get Worse Tim Mick, DC, an associate professor and chair of the Department of Radiology at Northwestern Health Sciences University says…

“Untreated, sciatica can lead to a loss of muscle strength and muscle size that may be irreversible. Eventually, there can be problems with gait.” Sciatica can be successfully treated. You can recover. Healthy, pain-free living should be yours. Call today and we can get started with your consultation, exam and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening in the schedule. Our office is called Crossroads Chiropractic and you can find us at 45 Eagle St., in Newmarket. (Just a few doors east of Yonge St). Tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Back Pain And Sciatica Evaluation before July 15, 2016 I look forward to helping you get rid of your pain so you can start living a healthier, more joyful life. Sincerely, Dr. Joshua Nikkanen, D.C. P.S. You’ve got too many dreams left undone. Too many special moments waiting to be experienced. Life is too short to let pain slow you down. Don’t live another day like this. Call and schedule for your evaluation. 905-830-1146.

Summer Tires

It’s the beginning of June and you’ve noticed that your tires are looking rather worn. It’s easy to lose track of the life of your tires because you rely on your vehicle for so many things like getting to work and driving the kids to school. No wonder you neglected to check their condition. Make sure to give your summer tires a thorough inspection before heading out on your summer adventures. Tires should be checked every two months for any wear and tear.

The depth of the tread on your tires determines how much traction you have on the roads, especially on rain-slicked pavement. Without the proper tread depth, stopping on wet roads can be a challenge. Shallow treads keep your tires from getting rid of water build up and this can lead to hydroplaning. So how do you know if you have enough tread? Tires that have less than 1.6 millimetres of tread depth do not meet the legal limit and the tires must be replaced. How do you measure the treads? You can find tread indicators at most automotive shops. They are accurate and inexpensive. To measure tread depth, you must take a reading from the deepest part of the tread groove with the ‘pin’ of the indicator.   If you’d rather not spend any money on an indicator, at least spend a dime. Try the Bluenose Test. Insert a dime upside down into the tread groove. If the top of the Bluenose’s sails

on the coin is visible, it is time to get a new tire. Once you have determined that the tread is deep enough, you will want to check the tire pressure. Safe driving includes having the proper amount of air in your tires. Tires that are too soft actually increase the distance it takes to stop your vehicle. It also means the vehicle is working harder to roll the wheels, which in turn means you are using more gas. Most tire manufacturers say drivers should check their tire pressure monthly. If you find that you are doing regular checks on your tires and they continue to seem a bit deflated, you might have a slow leak. Get them checked to ensure you do not have any punctures. Before heading to the air pump at the local gas station, check out the vehicle’s information booklet. Inflating your tires to the max could put you at risk. The center of your tire will wear quickly, reduce your traction and could cause a blowout. Automobile Manufacturers make suggestions about what the ideal tire pressure is for your vehicle.   Invest in an accurate tire gauge. And remember to always test the pressure when the tires are cold. Do not measure your tire pressure immediately after you have been traveling. Wait at least three hours to do the test. If air needs to be added, be sure to only add enough air to meet the suggested tire pressure.

Time in the Woods So you have decided to go camping and you can’t wait to pitch a tent in the perfect spot overlooking an inviting lake. You can envision it in your mind. The campfire glowing, great outdoor activities and the kids leaving all their tech gadgets behind to spend time with everyone! It may seem like the simplest vacation to plan for your family. How complicated can it be? Pack a tent, some sleeping bags, matches and some food. Planning a camping vacation may be more involved than you think. Here are some guidelines to help you create a great outdoor vacation for your family.

campgrounds. Don’t plan to take any fireworks with you because they are not permitted. Most of all; check the fire status for the campground before lighting any campfires. Also, if you cancel your trip, there are cancellation fees.

Location, location, location. Check out the Ontario Parks website for a list of campsites around the province. They have a seasonal guide and information about how to find the parks.

Make a checklist. You don’t want to forget anything when heading out on a camping trip; most superstores are not exactly around the path and across the stream. There are a few obvious things you want to include in your packing: tent, tarp, blankets, pillows, water jug, coolers, dishpan, bio-degradable soap, dish towels, paper towels, garbage bags, re-sealable containers, utensils, can opener, camp stove, knives, mugs and the list goes on. Other than the things you need for cooking and sleeping, you may also consider a few tools including a hatchet, a mallet and a multi-functional pocket tool.

Reserve your spot. Just like a hotel, campsites need reservations. In fact, some of the more picturesque sites are booked up to five months in advance. Also note that the maximum stay at an Ontario Parks campground is 23 days per year with a maximum of 6 people per site. The maximum length of stay on any one backcountry campsite is 16 consecutive nights with a maximum of 9 people per site. Rules of the Woods. There are rules and guidelines for every vacation and camping is no exception. Some campsites have blackout dates where alcohol is not permitted on the campsite. Most only allow alcoholic beverages on registered sites. Any offroad vehicles including ATVs can only be used in certain areas of the

Do not feed the animals. Properly storing all food when camping is a must. There are many creatures that share the woods with campers and they too enjoy a delicious meal. It’s no picnic when a bear wants to snack on your food supply.

Safety is first. Don’t forget first aid. Must haves are bandages, tweezers, splints, instant cold packs, alcohol wipes or hydrogen peroxide, antibiotic ointment, Calamine lotion, antihistamine, and Ibuprofen/Acetaminophen, bug spray and sunscreen. If needed, take enough prescription medication with you, plus some extra. Be sure to store it properly.

What Does Licensed Home Childcare Mean

?

Weighing childcare options can be overwhelming, especially for a new parent. But you’ve done your research and decided that home-based childcare is the best choice for you… A warm, friendly, home environment makes an easier transition into daycare for infants and toddlers. It’s a personal relationship with a Provider, the caregiver – who is usually a mom herself. A low number of children in care allows for the right balance of individual attention and social interaction. It can be more flexible with pick-up and drop-off times that works with your schedule. What’s even better, you want licensed home childcare, because you know there is a difference. What you should know… With home-based childcare, there are licensed Agencies and private home caregivers. Only an Agency can qualify to be licensed. Private caregivers that operate independently cannot be licensed and are not regulated or monitored. They must inform parents they are not licensed.

Safety in the homes… homes must have appropriate play, eating and sleep space that conform to fire safety regulations; have child proofing safety measures in place from using gates for stairs, securing a TV or wall unit, storing hazardous materials out of a child’s reach; only use approved equipment and play materials; ensure there is appropriate insurance coverage.

Being licensed means an agency meets strict standards and guidelines set by the Ministry of Education and are governed by the new Child Care & Early Years Act. These standards help to ensure safety and a positive experience for parents and their children. They apply to ratios of children allowed in a home, educational program requirements, nutrition and home compliance.

Supervised support & monitoring… as an agency, parents and Providers receive support from a team of experienced staff that include Area Supervisors and certified Registered Early Childhood Educators. RECEs conduct regular visits to all Wee Watch homes. These are unscheduled “drop-in” times when they check to ensure programs and standards are maintained, support Providers, and follow up with each child’s well-being.

Licensed Means Adhering to Safety, Quality Standards, And More… Wee Watch is a licensed Agency that has been caring for children, parents and their Providers, for over 30 years. Their childcare system not only follows the CCEYA standards, but exceeds many of the requirements.

It’s about learning & having fun… Children have a daily routine of educational play-based activities, outdoor play, and rest time. They receive nutritious meals following Health Canada’s Food Guide and can accommodate special dietary needs. Exclusive to Wee Watch is the “Wee Learn” educational program. This was designed by child care professionals and customized to be age appropriate, adapting to a child’s progress and growth.

Here are a few highlights of key protocols Wee Watch follows as a licensed agency: The right qualifications and skills… Providers undergo an extensive screening process from medical, personal references and police record checks. They receive training on processes for emergencies or accidents, have Standard First Aid and CPR certification and receive ongoing workshops to update their skills.

Wee Watch has a network of homes that allows parents to have more safe choices for childcare - locations convenient to home or work, selecting compatible Provider personalities and a home set-up best suited to their preferences.

Paved Masterpieces It used to be years ago that if you had a paved driveway you were way ahead of the Jones’. You’d be hard pressed to find a gravel driveway in a subdivision today. In fact, what leads to some homes can be seen as a paved masterpiece.

Acupuncture, Herbs, Chiropractic and Massage Therapy

Landscaping companies can do a lot with paving stones and interlocking bricks. Take a walk through your neighbourhood and you will see attractive garden designs that have been constructed from different kinds of bricks. In some cases these designs have been extended to the driveway.

Specializing in acupuncture and Chinese herbs, our Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner and Registered Acupuncturist are graduates from a prestigious university of Traditional Chinese Medicine with more than 20 years of experience. Conditions treated include, but are not limited to:

Before looking into changing your driveway, check with your municipality. Some towns/cities have regulations about the width of your driveway. Depending upon the size of your property and the distance to the curb or sidewalk, you may find that changing the size of your driveway would break a bylaw. Be sure that whatever changes you would like to make are within the municipalities’ laws.

If you are dealing with an asphalt driveway that is in great condition, talk to a landscaping company about adding a design. You can create borders down the sides of the driveway or designs at the top that work with your existing structure. Just remember that any changes made to the sides of the driveway that may make it bigger could be in violation of any bylaws. Always check first so there are no surprises.

Interlocking bricks can make any driveway look classy. Some designs carry the interlocking from the front walkway through to the driveway. It adds colour to the endless gray and a design to a blank slate. If you are more ambitious and have more money to spend, consider replacing the asphalt completely with bricks. There are many attractive designs that you can consider. The colour of the bricks will be an appealing welcome mat for your home. Be sure to ask your landscaper about the type of base that is recommended. There are several to choose from that will ensure your driveway design will hold its shape for years to come. After a certain amount of time, interlocking bricks can begin to look worn. It’s not a bad look. Sometimes the weathered appearance can be attractive too. If you are not happy with the look of your existing interlocking, there are a few things you can do. Contact a company that specializes in the bricks. They can professionally clean the area and apply a sealant that will help protect the look. Due to wear and tear, you might find that you will need to replace a few sections. Find several quotes before deciding. If interlocking is not your thing, there are other choices. A concrete driveway may not sound appealing. Large white concrete slabs are not necessarily attractive. But, gone are the boring concrete days. You can now have a design stamped into a coloured concrete surface that adds curb appeal to any home.

Imagine your home, totally organized!

Hot Summer Entertaining

There are two entertaining seasons in Ontario… winter entertaining and summer entertaining. It feels as though the winter entertaining months last a lot longer than the warmer summer entertaining months. So when the sun creeps closer to this side of the earth, many Ontarians start planning for outdoor celebrations. There is nothing like a fabulous summer soiree. If you are planning an outdoor party but don’t know where to start, here are some tips. Give your party some direction… consider making it a theme party. Having a theme for your fun affair will help you choose decorations and a menu. It also makes it more exciting for your guests. If you are thinking tropical, a Hawaiian luau is always a hit. Most dollar stores have fake grass skirts that you could give guests when they arrive. Don’t forget the leis. For a little fun, invest in a small blow up pool and some inflatable beach balls. Tiki lights are always in style, no matter the theme. Black and white parties are a classier affair. Try hanging white lights throughout the backyard. Glass candleholders scattered in safe places around the backyard will also create a warm glow. No matter what theme you choose, lighting can play an important role. Once you have established the theme, creating the menu will Your local authorized Alliance dealer!

seem easy. Themed food is always a hit at any party. Plan on appetizers and snack foods that will complement your evening. If you are partying Hawaiian style, try various fruity dips and chips. Have any food that you can prepare in advance done the day before. It will help cut down the stress of the day knowing you already have food prepared. Think about serving the foods in decorative ways. Hollow out a watermelon and chop the fruit into pieces… put it back into the shell. It is more decorative than simply slicing the fruit.

Shade Yourself With

Your Awning Specialists!

Appetizers are always a hit with any party, whether you are serving dinner or not. Have an ample supply of finger foods available for your guests to nosh on while they mingle. Get creative. Skewers make finger foods much easier to eat. Create appetizing savory skewers, but don’t forget the sweeter ones as well. Many of these can be prepared ahead of time. Set up a beverage station that is self-serving. Invest in a couple of large beverage dispensers. Pre-mixed drinks can be poured into the dispensers and guests can help themselves. Have a stock of refills that are already made and available. If your beverages contain alcohol, be sure to mark which drink is non-alcoholic. Designated drivers, pregnant women and others watching their alcohol consumption will appreciate being able to indulge in a beverage that does not contain alcohol. The more you prepare before the day of your party, the more time you will have to mingle with your guests. You want to enjoy the evening as well.

Senior BEAT Being Health Care Smart It is no secret that as we age we require more health care. We rely on our general physicians for frequent visits and we may even require the assistance of a host of specialists. You know your doctor to visit her/him, but do you know any more than that? Have you ever had any concerns about a health care provider? Do you know how to find out more information? In Ontario, there are regulatory bodies that keep tabs on health professionals. In fact, there are 26 Colleges that regulate doctors, dietitians, and even dental hygienists, to name a few. The Colleges develop and update the rules that professionals must follow. These bodies are also required to keep a registry of its members. The registries are public and anyone can access them. Patients can track down information about their doctors by searching the name of the physician. You are able to find out if your doctor is permitted to practice in Ontario. You can see if there are any restrictions placed on this person’s practice or if there have been any disciplinary issues. Do you know your rights as a patient in Ontario? The Colleges are able to help you with your rights as well. You can find out what to expect and whether the care you have been receiving has been appropriate. You can also address any concerns you have and even file a complaint against a registered professional, if needed. The Colleges hold their members accountable for all of their actions.

Long-term care facilities and home care professionals have their own regulations. In Ontario, the Long-Term Care Home Quality Inspection Program keeps tabs on the 629 longterm care facilities in the province. The program investigates complaints and concerns. It also inspects the facilities at least once a year. The inspections are made by certified inspectors and are unannounced. If you have a complaint against a long-term care facility, you can call the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and file a report. Inspection reports are available for longterm care facilities through the ministry website. You are able to look up any homes by name or by postal code. The website lists all inspections and the reason behind the inspection. If it was a complaint, the reason is listed and the outcome of the inspection is available. In Ontario, some seniors with complex health care issues are able to apply for homecare funded through the Ontario Government. Those who qualify may have services such as nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech-language therapy, social work and even nutrition assistance funded by the government. The services are also available for those who do not receive government funding, but at a price. These types of services fall under the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Any complaints or issues with a health care provider can be made to the Ministry. Â

Youth BEAT Etiquette for Young Adults By Samantha Forani, Graduate of McMaster University

CGMA Private School | Since 1995

Kids are growing up fast these days. And I am sure everyone has heard the question, “When are you going to treat me like an adult?” However, some of these young adults may not seem to have a grasp on manners and etiquette anymore. They need to learn that if they want respect from their peers and elders, they need to offer it in return. While many teenagers likely just rolled their eyes at this, it is so simple to be polite and respectful toward others. Even the smallest things like looking someone in the eye when speaking with them, or giving them a meaningful handshake or hug can make such a difference. Too many people are only partially involved in their conversations with others, with one eye on their phone the entire time. When you are talking to someone, put your phone away. Many do not realize how much they are insulting someone else when they are on their phone during a conversation. It also helps to speak up during any social interaction. Mumbling gives the impression that you are uninterested and lazy, and this will not earn the respect you are looking for. And of course, no one can forget the two most magical words that can earn the respect of your peers and elders. Those two words are ‘Thank You’. Acknowledging someone’s deed and showing that you appreciate it can do so much more than people realize. And to all of the young readers, your parents will appreciate those two words more than you know. ‘Thank You’ says so much more than just that, and people will always be grateful for the respect those two words hold. Now, with the rush of Social Media occurring, how we present ourselves online says so much about us too. Many young adults do not think about what their Facebook account or Instagram says about their etiquette. All that matters is how many likes their new profile picture received. I have honestly gone to job interviews where the interviewer admitted to looking me up on Facebook to see what I was like. It is so important to think about what we post on these sites, and what is says about you. While I think I have been rather responsible with my social media accounts, it is always safe to make your account private or for friends only. I personally do not use my full name so that potential employers or strangers cannot find my account.
