Once in a while I come across a great product for parents that I just want to jump up on the couch and shout out about how fabulous it is!

For the first 6 years of my daughters’ life, she suffered from asthma. There were two times that her asthma was so bad, we had to rush her to the hospital. This had to be the scariest moments of all of our lives. We had inhalers for her until she was almost 7 years old at which time her asthma disappeared. She is 13 years old now and although she doesn’t have asthma, she is slightly allergic to dust and pet dander. Just recently we placed an air filter system in her bedroom and the difference was immediate. She would wake in the morning feeling refreshed, no longer with a stuffy nose and best of all, no more complaining about the dog walking by as the purifier just replaced her smell with fresh air. I have to admit that when she goes to school, the air purifier comes down to my office! It reminds me of Vegas – and seems a bit scandalous that I can have this super fresh air pumped into my office all day long! The one we have is called an AeraMax 300 and it is supposed to capture up to 99.97% of airborne particles – here is a link just in case you want to check it out…I would highly recommend them!

I have also included some interesting facts about the air we breathe! Who knew?

The Dirty Truth About Your Air

Indoor air can up to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air and even when it looks and smells clean, the dirty truth is it contains a long list of undetectable pollutants. Here is just a sample of what you could be breathing in:

1. Germs can live in the air for 3 to 4 hours and travel in excess of 10 to 15 feet.

2. A cubic metre of air may contain 15,000 flu viruses.

3. A carpet can hold 8 times its weight in dirt, pesticides and other toxins that become undetectable airborne pollutants when dry.

4. Dust particles on upholstered furniture can contain decomposing insect parts, pet dander and flakes of skin – all of which are released into the air anytime anyone sits down.

5. There is no such thing as a non-allergenic dog or cat. Short-haired or hairless animals contribute dander and allergens to indoor air pollution just as effectively as long-haired animals do.

6. Central air systems can become breeding grounds for mould, mildew, viruses and bacteria which are then distributed throughout a home or

7. People exposed to heavy indoor smoke are 2 to 3 times more likely to develop chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

8. Odours from felt markers, inks, glues, correction fluid, toner from copiers and other office chemicals can emit vapors at room temperature that over time can cause symptoms similar to inhaling formaldehyde.

Thank you so much for stopping by this page to get to know a bit more about me and why I started Parent Guide Inc.

My business story started a way back in 2001…

…after the birth of my first daughter, I realized that an "all-in-one" resource guide for parents was needed, and fast! I designed the New Parent Resource Guide to fill a gap in the community for busy parents like myself. The New Parent Resource Guide offers an A-Z of key contacts for parents, caregivers, service providers, and health care professionals.  Working with key businesses and organizations in the community, we have also compiled much-needed articles, tips, and charts to answer all your parenting questions.

The latest addition to our family is the School Age Resource Guide to serve parents of children, 3 to 18 years!  This guide answers questions about: nutrition, bullying, curriculum, building self-esteem, and much more, as well as offering a full directory of local and national resources.

The Parentguide.ca website offers an “all-in-one” spot for parents to connect, add their own blog, and find needed resources in their community.  It is a site that educates and entertains and if you can't find somthing just ASK me.

I am here to serve YOU!  My hope is that you connect with our members, find comfort in their words, and share your own story. My goal is to see what I can do to help make life a bit easier for you.   You are why I do what I do!

I can’t wait to get to know you!  Comment below to tell me about yourself – then start blogging so we can find out what makes you get up in the morning!  Check out my blog too and I am sure you will be surprised what gets me out of bed each day!!!
