Welcome to the online home of Connecticut Parent
Magazine, the State’s Leading Publication for FamiliesTM
November is the start of something big! Leaves are piling up on the ground and there’s more of a chill in the air. But, everyone’s focus is on the upcoming holiday season, starting with Thanksgiving! This month is all about family, friends, fun and food — and showing appreciation for all of the special people in your life! From the first page to the last, Connecticut Parent Magazine is filled with stories, ideas and inspiration to make this the beginning of a great holiday.
Let’s get the party started with the bi-annual Party Spectacular! Whether you are hosting a birthday celebration or want to do something special for your guests, this guide has all the answers! From magic to face painting and characters to crafts, you will find the perfect option to make your party one in a million!
Thanksgiving is a time for reflection. Help everyone count their blessings and they will discover that spending time with family can be the most rewarding. However, if the kids are grumbling about sitting at the children’s table during the holiday meal, you can make that the best seat in the house — with a little help from the Peanuts gang!
November is National Adoption Month. This is an opportunity to open your heart and home and make a difference in a child’s life. Learn about the different types of adoption and see what options work best for you.
Although it seems like the school year has just begun, this month is also the time for parent-teacher conferences. Discover ways to get the most out of this meeting. Reading is always an important part of your child’s day. The Middlebury Library has compiled a great selection of books that you and your family can share about the true meaning of Thanksgiving. Check out the Family Fun Calendar so you won’t miss any of the upcoming special events that are sure to become annual holiday traditions.
Connecticut Parent Magazine is thankful too — to you, our great readers, and the opportunity to share our publication with you. Happy holidays!
