One of ValueMags’ best selling magazines is Parents Magazine. It is America’s leading magazine that is devoted to serving parents and guardians who are raising children. The magazine is marketed for women between the ages of 18 and 34 but is accessible by nearly everyone who has some sort of responsibilities whether it is kids, work, or extra curricular. The magazine is focused on family bonding and formation, growing relationships, and daily needs of parents, especially mothers. How can one achieve a balance life while juggling home, child development, relationships, finance, education, discipline, and much more while still finding time for oneself.
ValueMags wants their many readers to know that although Parents Magazine puts an emphasis on certain aspects of parenting, each parent has a unique parenting style. The first step for any parent is to become aware of your natural parenting tendencies. Often times, these tendencies are a result of what you’ve been taught and what you are passing on, your morals and values, and what you want for your child. Usually, it is recommended that parents also establish clearly defined and understood rules for the household, limits, and what appropriate and inappropriate behaviour is. By identifying those with your children, you can better focus on what your tendencies are and which are strengths and which are weaknesses. For the most part, all your tendencies are done with your child’s best interest in mind. However, they are not the only ones growing and learning from their experiences. Much of the learning is also on the parent’s end too.
Some mother’s at ValueMags found that the most helpful and realistic alive given by Parents Magazine was to make lists. Making lists for self assessment and to assess a situation can make things a lot clearer, especially when they seem beyond less than clear.

Although the magazine cannot do it for you, their ideas are helpful and can lead you in the right direction.
