August 2014 Issue

At ParentMap, we tackle the complicated issues alongside the light-hearted fun of family life, because we know your parenting journey has that same duality. In this issue, we take a close look at gender, examining how the boy/girl binary is being redefined by our kids' generation; dissecting sexism in the superhero genre; looking at the new sex ed in schools; and exploring the color paradigm that new parents face. We've discovered, as you will, that parents find themselves navigating gender issues at all stages.

In the glow of summer, we also peek at cool neighborhoods worth exploring, parent friendships, and the question of kids and growth hormones.
