Welcome to the online home of Connecticut Parent
Magazine, the State’s Leading Publication for FamiliesTM
An “awe”-some month, July heats up with plenty of family fun! This month we take time out to celebrate America and freedom with family get-togethers and plenty of parties. Something we look forward to all year long. Keep your eye to the sky as there are plenty of locations to catch a fireworks display; your world will explode with color and light. Join the crowd with oohs and aahs as you enjoy each spectacular burst!
The holiday starts the month off with a bang. Get the party started with terrific recipes you’ll find in our July issue that will keep your crowd coming back for seconds and even thirds. We have lots to share in our magazines to make the holiday and July weekends loads of fun. Magnificent fireworks shows are just the icing on the cake. We have backyard competitions for your kids and adults who are still kids at heart.
It’s summer — kids just want to have fun! With extra free time, your child may be spending more of it on social media sites. But, that might not be such a bad thing. With proper supervision, these sites can help her learn, connect and raise social awareness. Children often experience the “summer slide” where they are at risk of losing a lot of what they’ve learned during the school year. In addition to summer fun, put together a summer enrichment program for your child. The Middlebury Public Library has compiled a list of books that go hand-in-hand with the great outdoors and camping fun which prove to be interesting reading.
Have a new baby? Just moved to town? Not happy with your current doctor? If you are in the market for a pediatrician, we have interview tips to share when interviewing doctors. This month there is much to share about kids’ health, famous figures that overcame learning disabilities, and much, much more. The Family Fun Calendar is super charged with great things to do and see all month long.
So, Happy Birthday America, have a safe and terrific holiday!
