The experience of mothers in different parts of the world will always be fascinating to us. And who better to mark our first German-based profile than Shirley Erskine-Schreyer, a Berlin-dwelling, Toronto-raised mama of two (Bella, 2, and Michaela, 20) who is the mastermind behind Wunderhaus, a soon-to-open local spot offering childcare, healthy food options, and a wide range of support for mothers. Here Erskine-Schreyer, who has been living in the cool German capital for five years, talks about her business plans, German vs. American parenting, and raising daughters who are 15+ years apart.
