Who needs parenting magazines when we have KSP? :imcool:
I usually won't buy them, will just flip through at bookstores or at hair salons... I rather spend on kids' mags/books.. :smile:

I read young parents and Singapore child mag. Been a subscriber for yp for a few years. Just picked up Singapore child (or is it sg children?) three issues back.

For those with babies, then can consider motherhood or mum and babe. I subscribed to both a few years back.

in my personal opinion, yp is the best bet if u only want to subscribe to one magazine. If you read such mags widely and regularly, you would realize that the content sort of get "recycled" here and there.

Sg child is a refreshing change. For one, it has a section on recycling art and craft. They give ideas and demo on what u can do with a tissue paper box for instance. They also provide ideas on activities you can do with your children with a book. Recently, they touched on charlotte's web and Eric carle's hungry caterpillar.

Sg child also comes with a kid's mag. One price for two mag. $4.50.

I started reading sg child when my colleague recommended me on a feature write up they did on the roles of each parent, what the father can/shd do and what mothers can/shd do.

So far, into the third issue, I find their articles original and throws up a brand new perspective.

Agree with Imami.... a lots of contents are recycled... I did not renew my subscription, instead now I go online to read blogs and forums... plenty of good reads online.
