You'll "flip" over our online editions: Metroparent December 2015

Metroparentmagazine.com started as MilwaukeeMoms.com in 2002 as a resource and networking community for parents raising kids ages 0-13 years. The site was purchased by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2006 and is a vital part of the Journal Interactive group of websites as a one-of-kind, centralized resource for its comprehensive presentation of time-saving information for everyone raising children. The site was renamed to metroparentmagazine.com in 2013.

Our Weekend Guide e-newsletter delivers information on family events, activities, advice, blogs and more into your inbox every Thursday afternoon to help you plan your weekend.
