Spring is almost here–bring on the fun with this issue's tips, tricks, and advice!


It's March, which means spring is almost here—and really, so is summer camp! In this issue, we asked camp directors which 10 crucial questions you should ask when camp shopping to make sure you find the right camp for your kid. And then we took a deep dive into something that will hopefully not happen to your child at camp: "cancelling." Cancel culture is real–learn how to talk to your kids about it with our explainer. 

In this issue you can also find handy hacks for how to throw an awesome birthday party without all the stress, as well as a Q+A with influencer Pamela Peckerman that offers some wise nuggets about parenthood, and our monthly column from Mike Julianelle (@dadandburied). And don't forget our monthly calendar, which is full of fun springtime events, as well as our local news roundups and day trip ideas. Happy March!
