As a first time mom you are always looking for helpful tips and ideas and this magazine is full of them. I would be lost without some of the ideas I have gotten from it, and the advertisements are actually enjoyable because they are related to things you need for your baby.
I good place to get advice for parents
I love being able to go to the first couple of pages where it tells the articles and the ages the article is for. Each issue gives great advice. I love being able to read about a problem and how they suggest to fix it. They aslo have some great ads in it to.
Parenting Magazine is a good magazine.
Parenting Magazine is a really nice magazine. It gives some useful information on some topics that I am interested in. Sometimes I can find things that are useful and other times there just isn't any information in the magazine that pretains to my family or myself. I just wish that the magazine would offer more money saving coupons for moms that are on budgets or for moms that just want to save money on everyday items that they use for their children. This magazine how ever doesn't offer a lot of information for parents with older children. I would like to see more articles that have information on children with disorders or problems like "ADHD", "OD", "CD", and for children that have had their parents just give up on them and sign all their parental rights off. I want to have these articles so that way parents with children that have these problems can find different ways of dealing with the problems at hand.
Its a life saver!
Parenting magazine is the forst magazine that I subscribed to. I love it! It gives you the sense of comfort knowing that you are not the only one dealing with the struggles of raising a child. It gives you great advue. I also like the fact that in the back there is always new recipies. The recipies also include things that your child can do to help prepare them. It also includes great articles including someones life story! All in all I love this magazine!!

Parenting is a magazine every first time mom needs.
Parenting magazine is me favorite magazine out of all of the parenting magizine. I was bought a subscription as a gift whin I was pregnate with my first child. I continue to subscribe to the magazine and even keep the old issues to refure back to when need be. Children are so hard to understand and your so scarred with the first child. Parenting magazine always has the most helpfull information in it.
It's just a great magazine!
It's just a great magazine and extremely helpful! It just give you helpful hints and things to expect in the coming years and now. I'm expecting in less than three months and I have been reading this magazine for over two years when my sister was expecting her first child. Even for me then it was helpful and it gives you so many ideas.
Perfect thing for parents!
Parenting Magazine is the perfect thing to consult for parents to be, new parents, and even parents of older children. They are always giving great advice and suggestions for taking care of and entertaining your children. More so is the fact that most of their advice goes along with the occuring seasons so there is always activity ideas, and tips for avoiding sickness.
Good magazine for Moms.
I used to subscribe to this magazine when my boys were small. I like the tips on home safety, new foods or products. It has great advice for parents with babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers to use.
However, as my kids got older and bigger, the magazine didn't seem to help with advice anymore. Once they "graduated" to school age, the tips and advice just didn't pertain to anything they were doing or what we as parents were going through with their behaviors or interests. So I stopped subscribing.
If you are a new parent or seeking some assistance with a toddler, then this magazine is wonderful, but after about age 5, this magazine becomes obsolete for a parent.

General Advice for Parents, but Mostly for Mothers
Do you have some young kids of your own or spend time taking care of youngsters? If you do, then you might enjoy **Parenting**, a magazine that talks about children and all the unique problems, challenges, and rewards they bring, with a few articles about the adults who help to raise them. This magazine is issued by Time, inc., one of the best- known names in the publishing business. **Magazine Commentary:** Parenting is a magazine that centers on children between the ages of birth and twelve years and the majority of this magazine's articles cover things important to understanding and raising kids, such as good nutrition, crying, discipline, self- esteem, and other topics. Plus, there are always some articles each month that center on parents themselves- how they can better cope with kids, relieve stress, and find the right balance between work and home. This magazine is known mostly for its advice on children, and there is an article of interest to be found in most every issue for those who enjoy this subject. Behavioral problems, safety, entertainment, clothing, school, disease prevention, and other topics can be found in each issue. Some of the articles are direct and objective, with the writers telling you exactly what is recommended for solving a problem at hand. In other cases, the articles have a personal dimension, with family members discussing how they approach specific issues with child- rearing. One thing about Parenting that will not sit well with some readers is that the magazine is almost entirely focused on mothers. Even the titles of many of the featured articles (like "Mom Notes", "Mom Exchange" and others) openly display the bias toward mothers. With a magazine name like "Parenting", I expect a more balanced approach that includes both sexes. But Parenting is primarily concerned with mothers. It is rare to find an article that talks about the role of fathers in the parenting process and this fact will be a major turn- off to many readers. I like the arrangement of this magazine and I especially appreciate the "by the ages" index. This can be found near the front of the issue and it breaks down the different age groups (birth to 6 months, 6 months to a year, 1 year to 2 years, 2 to 3 years, 3 to 5 years, 5 to 8 years, and 8 to 12 years), providing a quick reference to the articles found in each issue that pertain to the different ages of your children. This makes it easy to bypass articles that are out of your age group and focus in on those that have the most relevance. If you like your magazine to be big, Parenting will not disappoint. Each issue can be counted on for between 200 and 250 pages. And besides the 15 to 25 regular monthly columns, there are also 15 to 20 featured articles that vary from month to month in content. Add these together, and you have a magazine with up to 45 separate pieces of reading material each month. This is quite a bit, and it makes Parenting easily worth the subscription price. **Bottom Line Viewpoint:**
Overall, Parenting is a good magazine, but it isn't my favorite on this subject. I like the large size of this magazine and the varied articles that cover a wide range of topics but I must deduct a some points from Parenting magazine's rating due to its almost exclusive focus on moms, with little or no coverage given to dads. But, even with my penalty points, Parenting magazine is worthy of a recommendation. The low cost, timely articles and wide range of topics covered make it a magazine worth reading for anyone who has young kids of their own or who takes part in their upbringing and care.
