June typically spells warm weather, more playground time for families, and heartwarming stories surrounding father’s day. That’s true this year, with many of our favorite local parenting and lifestyle magazines publishing father’s day articles. However, the content has more depth this year & we hope you’ll agree. A step in the right direction. Here is our brief roundup:
- Our friends at New York Family Magazine leads the field on depth, quantity, and wow-factor. With about 25% of this month’s magazine dedicated to dadcentric material, check out The DAD CHRONICLES (a round up of parenting stories from a diverse group of dads including one of our own, Jack Howard-Potter www.steelstatue.com)….or IN THE BALANCE, a GROUNDBREAKING conversation between five working fathers (you might recognize a few of the players involved here so we are biased) & a professor on the juggle of career and home…and NINTENDO THERAPY including an excerpt from Buzz Bissinger about his new book, Father’s Day: The Story of His Intellectually Challenged & Gifted Son. Check out these articles or grab a free copy of the magazine in the Turquoise colored drop box on your street corner.
- New York Metro Parents (aka Big Apple Parent) had a unique photo story and related contest based on concept from a new book Dear Photograph by Taylor Jones (William Morrow, an Imprint of HarperCollins Publishers; $25.99) to celebrate and display special parenting memories & moments in honor of Father’s Day. Additionally, they gave the NYC Dads Group a special shout out by including a nice piece “Spotlighting” our New Dad Boot Camp workshops + an in-depth interview. Thanks to Dawn Roode, Vanessa Friedman, Kaitlin Ahern, and the entire team! Check out these articles or grab a free copy of the magazine in the Blue colored drop box on your street corner.
