St. Louis Kids Magazine now has a new look online along with a lot of new features. You'll find the features you've come here for - great stories about raising kids in St. Louis, our handy resource guides (like the Summer Camp Guide and Parents Sourcebook), a Calendar of Events (see Things To Do), and special offers just for our readers.
You'll also find new features, like our SmartParenting blog. We've assembled a group of St. Louis moms (who are also professional writers) to fill you in on topics vital to you as a parent (like education, health, parenting tips, local parenting resources) but also the fun side of parenting, like great events for you and the kids to attend. We also have added a pop culture writer, because we know sometimes you just want to take off your mom hat for awhile and read about something other than parenting.
We hope you enjoy our new site and urge you to create an account (it's free). When you log in, you can comment and share your opinions with other moms and our writers. And we want to know what you think! You can post comments to our stories and even to our resource guide entries. Enjoy your visit, and come back again soon.
