About Chicago Parent

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 or blogger, it’s advice from a fellow parent who has lived it.

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.

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 Zoe Communications Group.

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 to support each other in this amazing journey.
