It’s July out there, people, and have we got an issue for you that is just packed full of playful ideas for your summer. Though no 5-year-old would find this to be news, our feature also explores the many ways play is so crucial for today's kids.
If you're looking for ideas to get out and about with kids, we've got 9 fun playdates for families around the Sound.
Also in this issue: how to fight the summer slide and some surefire strategies for sleep-deprived parents. As a counterpoint to play, read up on what two moms (and former ParentMap employees!) are doing to help close the gender wage gap in our state.
So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and play!
