Welcome to the online home of Connecticut Parent
Magazine, the State’s Leading Publication for FamiliesTM
If April showers bring May flowers, then gardens across Connecticut will be in full bloom very shortly! May is also the month for appreciation and thanks. Give an extra big hug to the mom in your life and show your gratitude to all veterans during the Memorial Day celebrations that take place throughout the state. This issue of Connecticut Parent Magazine is jam-packed with all the information, events and fun to make spring great!
Moms are the big news during May. First we celebrate new moms by giving them a glimpse into the fun and not-so-fun times that come with the job. We also offer some unique ways to say “I love you” to that special woman. What mother hasn’t experienced the agonizing cry of “Mommy, my throat hurts?” Read what happens if this recurring sore throat requires more than just another round of antibiotics.
Hey, mom — are you thinking of going back to school? Learn how one mom tackled this challenge, so you can start on your own educational path. And, are you getting teary as you pack up your child for camp this summer? Then the survival guide to camp is a must read. You can alleviate your own anxiety and make sure your child has the best summer experience ever!
After you come in from planting those beautiful flowers, curl up on the couch with your kids and read some great books that you’ll really dig — courtesy of the Lucy Robbins Welles Library in Newington. Check out the Family Fun Calendar, because each day has something new and exciting to offer.
Our Connecticut Parent Magazine family wishes all moms a Happy Mother’s Day. Go out and enjoy spring — and take time to smell the roses!
