February's a tough one–here's how to make it easier and more fun for the whole family!


Our February issue is all about keeping your kids safe, keeping yourself sane, and keeping the peace! We're still in the beginning of 2020, and the year can seem to stretch out endlessly before us. It's still winter, and kids can start to go stir-crazy. But luckily, we've talked to experts and fellow parents to figure out how to keep the peace between two siblings sharing a room. We've discovered all the ways you can keep your kids of all ages safe on YouTube. And, we've even figured out the secrets behind curating the best baby registry–without going crazy! To round it all out, our February calendar is chock full of things to do indoors and outdoors to make sure your family will have fun throughout the month, and we've rounded up nine books to help kids learn about significant people and moments in black history to celebrate Black History Month. The middle of winter can get hard, but we hope you can see the silver linings and new beginnings that February brings. You can read these articles online or find an issue near you!
