This Month's Issue

The COVID-19 crisis has restricted and subverted our lives and relationships in countless ways, (house)arresting families with fear, worry, loss, dislocation and stress. But it is no small irony of this pandemic marathon (which no one could have possibly trained for) that while it has operated to literally distance and disconnect us from others, it has by the same turn given us a time-out-of-time opportunity to become closer than ever to those we love the most: our partners and our children.

ParentMap’s February issue puts a focus on relationships, stress management and family fun. We hope you celebrate this month of love by implementing expert strategies to turn partnership woes into wins, enjoying rain-or-shine frolics as a family, achieving better screen-time balance with these expert tips, exploring creative ideas for kicking off a Year of the Ox that rocks and more.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
