I've just been read­ing the mag­a­zine, and as al­ways, I was struck by what a great mag­a­zine it is – with­out peer in par­ent­ing mag­a­zines for gen­eral read­er­ship. The ar­ti­cles are much more prac­ti­cal, ap­pli­ca­ble, and friendly, and have a con­sis­tency and heart in how they un­der­stand chil­dren.

While there are a few ads, that's not a prob­lem at all. They are not pre­dom­i­nant and there isn't any of that un­con­scious pres­sure to look dif­fer­ent, be dif­fer­ent, buy stuff or feel in­ad­e­quate that blitzes you with most mag­a­zines.

You don't do that dreary jour­nal­is­tic thing of hav­ing a bob each way and pre­tend­ing it's bal­ance, so there are no 'mommy wars' to con­fuse and make peo­ple feel crit­i­cised. You ac­tu­ally al­ready have bal­ance.

Your mag­a­zine re­spects par­ents, meets them where they are, and has us­able help on al­most ev­ery page. I am con­stantly sur­prised by how much I learn from it, and en­joy it.
