Local Sponsor Spotlight on Chicago Parent

by Tracey on April 7, 2015

Without the support of local sponsors, Listen To Your Mother couldn’t happen. It absolutely could NOT. Local sponsors like Chicago Parent are what make it possible for LTYM to be on stage in Chicago for the fourth year in a row!

Since its first issues in 1980, Chicago Parent has been the local go-to magazine for every parenting need. Do you need to find kid-friendly restaurants that serve more than hot dogs? Are you looking for an activity that will entertain the most energetic toddler in the middle of a Chicago winter? Trying to live a healthier, “greener” lifestyle but don’t have a clue where to begin? Have you been wondering if you’re the only parent who doesn’t feel adequately prepared for the challenges that raising children present?

It’s all in Chicago Parent.

Pick up a copy and I guarantee that you will find yourself dog-earing page after page of interesting articles, unique festivals, and businesses you hadn’t realized existed until that moment. Chicago Parent will enlighten you about upcoming activities that unite and bond not only individual children and the parents that love them, but also the entire communities that are working together to raise this generation of children. Check out their upcoming Playdate on April 26!

As the years have passed from the early 80’s to present day, the needs of the parenting community have also changed; to suit the current trends and needs of parents, the face of Chicago Parent has evolved. No longer only a paper monthly publication, Chicago Parent now offers a variety of special projects such as Going Places (a seasonal family guide), Chicago Special Parent (a bi-annual magazine for parents of children with special needs), and Hey Baby (everything an expectant parent could need to know!). Always strategically placed in local businesses and available in digital copies online, Chicago Parent has always been a FREE resource that benefits thousands of families in over 6 counties in the Midwest.

Not only do their articles remain free and available online, but, as a consolation for those who are not blessed enough to live within the Chicagoland vicinity, Chicago Parent’s website contains BONUS articles written by their own team of skilled bloggers! These talented writers branch out into their individual niches and neighborhoods to bring an even more diverse collection of knowledge to your fingertips.

The April 2015 issue is currently on the stands of your local businesses. Within those pages lies an ad for LTYM Chicago that contains a discount code for the May 3rd show! Don’t know where to get your copy? Simply search on their site’s tool with your zip code for the closest location to pick up your own copy. Can’t get a physical copy but really want to read it? Digital copies of Chicago Parent are available HERE.

Thank you, Chicago Parent! We are so thrilled to have a partnership with one of Chicago’s best!
