This Month's Issue

It’s the power of the human condition that we dig in and work hard to improve the lives of our families, our communities and our world. Your read of this month’s issue will take you on countless journeys of failure, challenge, pain and heartbreak that turn into something miraculous and positive through knowledge and action. 

Our feature is an opportune guide to help empower parents to stimulate your child’s voice at the earliest age and to teach them that their body is their own.  “How Do We Teach Boys about Consent” featuring “Spare Me the Talk” author Jo Langford adds advice for raising our boys with a healthier idea of consent because we’re able to really talk about what it means to choose whether you want physical affection or touch. 

healthier idea of failure also inspires positive change while turnaround extraordinaire is how we define Dominique Davis, a former drug dealer turned community leader who has impacted countless kids in King County and beyond. Finally, we’ve shared some ideas to help find that place and space for your family to enjoy Feb. 14!
