This Month's Issue

Each April, ParentMap profiles a new cohort of Superheroes for Washington families, and current world circumstances being what they are, we need heroes more than ever. We hope their stories of do-goodery will inspire you during this worrisome time.

Also in this month’s issue, we’ve cooked up 30 fun activities, outings, semi-educational media distractions and projects to keep the kids busy, entertained and safe (and your sanity intact!). Plus, we've got top tips to help your baby sleep through the night; and for parents of older kids, ways to tell the difference between normal teen angst and problematic anxiety.

We have set up a landing page on our website where we will continue to add the latest information related to the coronavirus, along with a steady stream of ideas to entertain and educate your family. Keep safe!
