From the Editor – April 2024

RRP front cover converted

If you are a parent, you have experienced embarrassing moments at the hands (or mouths) of your young children. Maybe they said something rude to a stranger or had a severe meltdown at Walmart that left you completely baffled about how to handle it. My personal favorite is when they share private information about you or your family with someone you don’t know all that well (#mymommyloveswine). While we may laugh about most of these years down the road, Sarah Lyons is offering pro-parent tips on how to best deal with them when they happen in her article, Sticky Situations: How to Handle Those Embarrassing Moments.

Even though these little people might give us a hard time (wink wink), we always want the very best for them, including quality child care. This month, we’re sharing our 2024 Child Care Guide featuring details on local daycare centers, mother’s morning out programs, and preschools. The listing is sorted by zip code, so you can start your search based on where you live or work.

Of course, parents want to be super picky when deciding where their child spends most of their waking hours during the week. Tanni Haas shares questions to ask yourself and the centers you are touring in the feature, What to Look for When You Are Looking for Daycare.

The warming weather is kicking off events and outdoor fun in the River Region. Grab your calendar and flip over to our Bits and Pieces on page 10 to schedule a great time with your family every weekend in April!

See you next month when we finish up another school year by highlighting graduates and sharing our Summer Activities Guide!
