Here at the Boston Parents Paper and BostonParentsPaper.com, we are dedicated to helping parents and families get the information they need in the most convenient way possible. Often, this means going directly to the most relevant source – parents themselves!
Here are several ways to contribute your thoughts, ideas and even family photos for possible publication in an issue of the Boston Parents Paper:
• My Turn – Our op-ed column, My Turn, gives readers a voice on our pages. Got an opinion about an ongoing parenting or family-related issue in the news, in education, government or your community? Have something to say about a trend in childrearing? Here's your chance to be heard. Email your submission (no more than 600 words) to Boston.ParentsPaper@Parenthood.com.
• What Works for Us – This regular item in the Family F.Y.I. section of the Boston Parents Paper lets parents share their best practices with other parents. Got an idea for conquering playroom clutter, getting kids out the door in the morning or heading off a meltdown during the "witching hour"? Email it to our associate editor Susan.Flynn@parenthood.com.
• Milestones – We want to celebrate the milestones – big and small – of growing up. Email a photo of one of your child's "firsts" – first steps, first day of school or first time eating broccoli, riding a bike, attending a prom, etc. – to Susan.Flynn@parenthood.com. We'll publish one photograph every month in the Boston Parents Paper.
• Relationships – Each month, we help parents navigate the relationships in their lives with advice from a trained professional and from readers like you. Email the dilemmas you're having with a spouse or partner, neighbor, teacher, or your own children to Susan.Flynn@parenthood.com. We'll ask professionals and our readers for their advice and publish it in the Boston Parents Paper.
