In the Magazine: January 2020

The new year is all about resolutions, choices, and beginnings. Here are some we've explored!


Happy 2020! With the new year comes resolutions, decisions, and choices. Our January issue is all about education choices: how to choose the right school for your child, what to ask on prospective school tours, and where you can find the best schools in your area. We also focus on technology by taking a deep dive into TikTok–the hottest app for kids right now–and cyberbullying, and report on great podcasts that kids of all ages will love. As always, our calendar is stocked with fun things to do throughout January–just because the holidays are over, doesn't mean the fun has to be! And we've also published a new (hilarious) advice column from Mike Julianelle of @dadandburied. Whatever your resolutions are for 2020, your family will be sure to find something of interest in this issue. We wish you a happy, healthy, and safe new year!
