Welcome to the online home of Connecticut Parent
Magazine, the State’s Leading Publication for FamiliesTM
The first autumn chill may be accompanied by the frights and thrills of Halloween, but there is plenty of family fun to plan for in the month of October. Pick up your issue of Connecticut Parent Magazine, and see what all the excitement is about.
The centerpiece of this edition is the annual “Great Leaders in Education” section, commonly referred to as the “Headmasters” section. This exclusive showcase is the perfect starting point for families to begin investigating independent and magnet school options for their child. Throughout Connecticut, schools reflect on what makes them stand out from the rest of the pack, from the core of their mission statement to unique features. “Great Leaders” is an extension of the work we do every month to focus on the education and address topics that are important in this regard. You can continue to count on us for monthly open house listings throughout the autumn, into winter and beyond.
As many of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we take the opportunity to acknowledge this important health issue that has affected, and continues to affect, so many lives. Our main article takes an extensive look at separating fact from fiction, and offers a realistic approach for what young women need to know to protect themselves and be proactive.
Our monthly Family Fun Calendar, a popular section both online and in print, is jam-packed with great events that will fill your family’s days with memories and smiles. If you’re on the go, and don’t have the print edition handy, be sure to click on the digital edition links on this page to view the full version.
Have a great October, and enjoy a safe and fun-filled night of treats on Halloween!
