A monthly Connection
It happens every month; someone buys a magazine from a supermarket or newspaper and/or magazine vendor to read while settled on a couch at home. But it goes missing almost immediately it gets home after a member of the family “borrows” it “to look at the pictures” because that family member wants to read it privately in another room. It’s a perfect way to connect alone, a not-to-be-missed-ritual, one that has to be performed alone, yet sharing information that one can never be ashamed of in front of the children or other members of the family.
This is because that magazine, Parents, is a family magazine that prides itself in “caring for you and your family.”
Parents has been published consistently each month by Stellan Consult Ltd for over 25 years in Nairobi, Kenya. Printed in full colour from cover to cover, Parents features regular columns that make it an inspirational magazine that also tackles real life issues through practical features and advice sourced from the best professionals and writers.
