There is nothing more life-changing than becoming a parent. It
upends everything instantly and forever.
And those experiences - wondrous, worrisome, unique and
universal - are the things that Chicago Parent and our readers
share with each other. It's a conversation. It's news of an event
for this weekend, it's news that exposes a challenge to Chicago
families that only Chicago Parent understands. It's advice from a
trusted columnist, it's advice from a fellow parent who has lived
Chicago Parent is the voice of many
parents - across six counties, multiple income levels and from
every possible definition of being a family - binding parents to
kids, families to communities.
Feel that energy in Chicago Parent magazine every month,
changing every moment at ChicagoParent.com and face-to-face at our
many events. Then add our special projects, such as the totally
fun, totally useful Going Places family guide each season, Chicago Baby and
our newest effort, the twice-annual Chicago Special Parent.
For 25 years, Chicago Parent has been Chicago's essential
companion for parents. With the largest circulation, the broadest
assortment of useful advertising and more awards than fit our
walls, Chicago Parent has helped generations of Chicago families find their way, or
at least their way to the Field Museum.
Chicago Parent is owned by Wednesday Journal Inc., a small
independent media company focusing on neighborhoods and niches. The
company was founded in 1980 in Oak Park, where we own the local
newspaper and leading website.
We're easy to reach. We're open to suggestions. And we're
parents, too. So relax. We're all doing the best we can and we can
support each other in this amazing journey.
