Growing up! Team haven PUBLISHER/OWNER: As corny as it sounds, watching the kids grow up is parenthood’s payday. Seeing them find something that makes their heart sing – whether it’s academic, sport or creative – it’s a great journey and we get a front row seat. I do wish someone told me the tween/teen years are a lot more work for us parents (kind of like how no one tells you how much it hurts when your breast milk comes in!). What changes you ask? More driving, more worry, more homework, more food, more socialisin­g, more shopping, more nagging (because they still need a reminder to brush their teeth!) and more trust. They may not need their food mashed up anymore, but they do need the support, cheerleadi­ng, boundaries, routine and the ‘haven’ of their parents. EDITOR: kids help deliver magazines or work at events, has certainly grown up with my family. Read more on Pages 4-5. EDITORIAL ASSISTANT: haven This New Year has been a rollercoas­ter (and a fast one at that!). We can’t believe we’re getting ready to juggle more school holidays again, with autumn and Easter at our doorstep. How is Term 1 almost done and dusted already?! To ease your panic, we’ve stacked 100 school holiday activities (plus lots more) into this edition. You’re so welcome. ART DIRECTOR: DIGITAL/ADMIN: ADVERTISIN­G SALES: INTERN: Finally, we’re so proud to sponsor the Gold Coast Film Festival again this year. Supporting our local creative industry is so important, and this festival is the ultimate showcase of more than 100 films and events at 13 locations across the coast. Read all about it on Page 15. You know what I find funny? There is support for new parents via playgroups for bubs and toddlers, but there's not really a similar support for parents of tweens/teens. I vote we start a walking group (no, a margarita club!) to talk through the challenges.
