ParentMap, December 2013


This holiday season and all year round, ParentMap is fully committed to reporting on what keeps families safe. The lead story this December, Normal from the Outside, portrays a family that survived domestic violence, how they fought back, and how families like theirs can be better protected through our state's gun possession laws.

Also in this issue: Great advice on where to draw the line with toy guns, how to define modern fatherhood, and what to do when your teen says they want to volunteer internationally.

We'll help you navigate all the holidays have to offer with our great holiday arts calendar, and our list of the best creativity-boosting gift ideas for kids of all ages.

May the holidays bring you joy and warmth as you gather together with your loved ones!
