Welcome to the online home of Connecticut Parent
Magazine, the State’s Leading Publication for FamiliesTM
February is a month that is filled with highs and lows. The low point is that it’s smack dab in the heart of winter and by now the cold weather is wearing pretty thin. Fortunately, the highs win!
We start the month with Groundhog’s Day to find out just how long we will have to deal with the icy temps. But, then we quickly move on to Super Bowl Sunday (even if your team isn’t playing, there’s always wings, nachos and oh, those commercials)! Valentine’s Day is up next and there isn’t a sweeter day of the year. Right after that is the kids’ favorite — Winter Break. A whole week off — what to do? (Don’t worry, we have your back on this one!) And, finally the month ends with the glitz and glamour of the Academy Awards! Dress up and walk the red carpet and root for your favorite movies and stars. In fact, February is so much fun they added an extra day this year! Connecticut Parent Magazine soars to new heights, making February better than ever!
Winter Break will be here before you know it. Don’t wait for the “Mom, what can I do now?” lament, be prepared with the annual Survival Guide! It’s filled with museums, shows, trips and much more, so your family doesn’t just survive — it thrives! And, if you are home during the month, try making some heart-felt Valentine’s Day crafts to show someone special how much you care.
All that candy might give you a toothache. Don’t worry — February is Dental Health Month! Learn how to keep your child’s teeth shiny and bright, while preparing her for her next dental visit. And, while you are getting her ready for her million dollar smile, you can also get her ready to head off to day care and preschool. There are lessons you can do at home that will set the tone for years to come.
And, of course the Family Fun Calendar is filled with activities and adventure that give the shortest month of the year the largest amount of fun.
Connecticut Parent Magazine sends our love to you for a Happy Valentine’s Day. Go out and frolic!
