About Us

There is nothing more life-changing than becoming a parent. At Chicago Parent magazine, we get it: You’re tired, you’re busy, you’re in desperate need of a glass of vino, but you’re also hopelessly in love with your minis, and watching them grow up -- in Chicagoland, no less -- is what makes your heart swell. Ours, too! That’s why we’ve filled these web pages with the best of the best: the coolest play places, the hippest coffee joints, the yummiest restaurants (kid-friendly and date night-worthy), the most exciting museum exhibits, the most memorable vacations and so much more. 

Now that you’re here, there are four things we ask of you:

1. Visit us often. Our content changes every day.  

2. Get in touch. Want information on something you don’t see here? Let us know! We’d love to hear from you. Email Digital Editor Katina Beniaris at [email protected] with any inquiries about the website or web content. 

3. Join our growing parenting community. We’re active on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, and we want to connect with you. You can even get us in your inbox!

4. And finally, give yourself a pat on the back. If you’ve found us, you’re clearly doing something right (#parentingwin). And we’re so glad to support you on this amazing journey.
