Pros: Lots of poignant articles written by moms with older kids. Gives the magazine a real feel to it
Cons: A bit short
I got this in the mail as a free editorial review copy. I saved it to read during my flight to NYC, which was great because I read it from cover to cover from takeoff to landing, with a pause for lunch service.
I found the articles to be very down to earth and real. When you read something written by a parent from their own personal experience it gives so much more meaning and feel to the article.
It is not too many pages, though that may be because advertising doesn't fill it as much as some of the bigger mags out there. I would like to see more articles written about children struggling with family dynamics, especially when there is a change in family relationships. Would be great to have more about multiculturalism and the issues older kids have to deal with and how their parents help them work through such things. Would love to read about young adults living at home too.
Overall, a great read!
