Default Parenting skills and Business attire?

Thanks all for mentioning the Parenting skill course, anyone know of any good ones in Ottawa?

As for what to wear to the court, I'm disappointed, looks like I'll have to put away my 70's Disco attire ... thought I'd dazzle them with my moves and flashy colors!

John Travolta , watch out!!!!!!!!!
My older brothers used to wear those 'elevator' boots---they were the cat's meow back then. Fashion is cyclical and they'll probably come back in style...so don't throw away your patent leather pants yet, Hubby. Hey if you wear your 70's clothes to court, you may "dazzle" the judge into a state of utter shock, possibly judging in your favour. She'll either be totally impressed or in sheer disbelief Ha.
