This issue we are all about helping parents with back to school life: We have 5 brilliant homework hacks (#5 is very clever), tick off our social skills checklist for your children to master, we answer FAQs about independent schools and how they may suit your child. Our experts advise that you can help young children with reading using “logos” (yep, this is a pre-reading skill in action), and how seeing well is just one factor in a vision test that could be affecting your child’s learning. Try out Simon Gault’s kid-friendly meatball pizza recipe (it’s mouth-watering!), we have 5 healthy sleep habits worth trying out and learn why dance therapy is working so well for kids. As always, there are great prizes to win, a Kids’ Fun page to enjoy, and we have the best selection of fun things to do for families.
We are incredibly grateful to the school community for supporting our new digital magazine, it means we are able to share our magazine with more kiwi parents and whanau, in a format that is super visual and phone user friendly (70% of your parents will be reading this on their phone!). We do know that some families find it more enjoyable to read a hard copy in this overly-busy online world, and as a way to display good reading habits to their children. If you would like 50 or more copies for your school parents, firstname.lastname@example.org can assist you with this.
We are proud to be Aotearoa’s favourite parenting magazine for the last 19 years, with 550,000 free magazines distributed each year through schools, preschools, libraries, and Plunket. We also distribute digi-copies to over 1,800 New Zealand primary and intermediate schools nationwide.
