The content of the magazine is very well balanced with visual cues which gives it a very rich feel. I love the fact that the topics are organised in an orderly fashion and with clear and concise details. It was easy to make sense of everything because of this.
The articles and the ideas are really very helpful in the all-round development of a child. The article on transition (play school to grade 1) was very helpful for me, to prepare my child to move safely towards the changes taking place in the first phase of her life. Another article that impressed me was the one on pretend play. ParentEdge is helping us learn about and explore the kid’s world. It talks about various stages of parenting from newborn to tween. What I like about it is the research work done before including the article in the issue. The magazine is real because it depicts real life problems, with their solutions, which is very helpful for parents...I really thank the ParentEdge team for working for the betterment of modern day parenting and the effort they are taking to help us bring up a smart, confident, healthy and happy child. If we read ParentEdge we need not read a whole lot of books based on parenting and child psychology. ParentEdge is the updated one-stop for all this.
ParentEdge addresses the everyday concerns faced by today’s parents. As the father of a nine month old, I was referring to many different parenting magazines and websites. One day I came across an online preview of this magazine and was surprised that I actually learned something about kids. My wife and I use the magazine as reference, while we figure out this new life as parents. I love the fact that the magazine covers a wide age range of children. Other pluses are easy, healthy, kid friendly recipes and some great articles on parent-child bonding! Definitely worth a read are the articles on health issues and product reviews. ‘Ask the Expert’ section is very engaging with insightful analysis.

I am a working mother of a three-year-old boy. I hardly get any time to interact with other parents to take ideas. Also, being a first time parent, I wanted a magazine that publishes articles on all topics related to a growing child. ParentEdge is very useful on both counts. I wait for every issue and like to read one topic every night. I get to read articles which answer my current doubts and articles that prepare me for future aspects of parenting. I liked the theme in the May-June 2014 issue – literacy in children. I also liked the article “Working Closely with the Teachers”. My son just started his pre-school so it was very relevant for me, as it dealt with ‘parent-teacher communication”
ParentEdge helps me keep track of the requirements of modern day children, and also helps in fulfilling my kids’ demands in a more responsible way. I find that the topics are very relevant and the articles well presented. I am very happy with the quality of printing and paper.
The biggest challenge that the parent of a learningdisabled child faces is initial acceptance. It can be tough to understand and accept that your child has a learning disorder. You may worry about your child’s future and his ability to keep up with his peers and to cope with what the world throws at him. […]
A pet peeve of many parents is getting their child to study! As parents, we are ready to make compromises on almost everything else, but not on encouraging our children to give their 100% to academics. And yet, this is one area where they dig their heels in and make us push harder and harder. […]
No matter where children disappear to, they can be found peeping into the kitchen close to dinnertime, or any other time they smell something cooking. Watching their parents as they waltz around the kitchen, handling several different pots and pans, dicing and sautéing, tasting, adding salt and pepper… Cooking...
