This Month's Issue

ParentMap has pledged to explore the challenges and opportunities of climate action through the lens of parenting in 2020. We’ll bring forward expert perspectives, genius ideas and practical habits and solutions that we hope will help families shift thinking, reevaluate and reform patterns of consumption, and make a difference in ways both small and big. We’ll meet climate custodians and changemakers — many of them kids — who are addressing climate change head-on. In this month’s issue, we focus on the many ways kids and parents can get involved in community science and other amazing local family- and youth-led organizations working for climate action. And one of the best and most enjoyable ways you can train up a future steward of our natural world is to take your tot on a hike
Our February issue also shines a light on family love, from sweet and simple ways to show your special valentines you care, to a new look at sibling relationships, to the science and practice of self-compassion, which just might be the very root from which our capacity to love others blooms.
