The NYMetroParents blogroll features the best blogs in the parenting world, from New York and beyond. Here's a closer look at why we love these mom bloggers and dad bloggers and how they're shaping the web for parenting today.

Blogging From: Westchester County, NY

As a parent, you know how important it is to keep up with the news. But it’s also important to make sure that your children are connected to what is happening in the world and instill in them an interest in the people who shape it. Still, it’s not always easy to find a reliable source for kid-friendly reporting on key stories, but Claudia Heitler’s Here There Everywhere news site for kids fits the bill.

Heitler spent her entire working career at NBC’s Today Show before leaving her job to become a mom. At the Today Show, she booked and produced a whole range of stories for the show’s host Matt Lauer including coverage of the Olympics, elections, successes, and tragedies. Working at a news program, Heitler naturally met important leaders, celebrities, and the everyday people who had incredible stories to tell. Although she decided that being a mother was her most important priority, she never lost interest in the news and made sure to share it with her own kids, and eventually with kids everywhere through her website.

Here There Everywhere is designed to introduce students in elementary school to the most important world events and influential people. Students are undoubtedly able to understand and give their thoughts and attention to some of the essential topics of the day, and now they have a platform that really allows them to act on those interests and learn more about the good as well as the bad in their world. While a lot of the postings focus on topics that are quite newsy, there are also many fun pieces to enjoy.

Here There Everywhere has a clear design and user-friendly format that is perfect for kids. If you’re looking for a way to make sure your children stay informed and open up a dialogue with them about world events, then Here There Everywhere is the news site for you. –  Melanie Shapiro
