Welcome to ChiTown Parent, a new community blog from Chicago
Parent. We've spent a lot of time and effort over the past year
improving ChicagoParent.com, but when we took a step back, we
realized what was missing was you. Chicago parents. Lots
So we went out and found 12 people living, working and raising
their kids in the urban jungle they call home. They include an actor, a momtrepreneur,
a CPS language
teacher, a husband-wife team, and one fit mama.
They have 15 kids between them, ages 16 months to 10 years.
And over the coming months, they'll take on The CPS Scramble,
the skinny on Chicago's neigborhood farmers markets, and why they
ever thought it was a good idea to have a baby in a high-rise.
Follow along as 12 city parents report in with news and notes from
across Chicago's neighborhoods.
