About Us

For more than 39 years, Washington Parent Media has been a trusted resource for parents in the Washington DC metro area. We have been serving parents in our local communities offering expert advice, stories on parenting trends and issues and a variety of ways for parents to enrich their experience raising their children.

We are members of the Parenting Media Association (PMA) and are held accountable for fostering high-quality standards in both our magazine and online content. PMA represents integrity with excellence in terms of circulation, demographics and editorial product. In 2020, at the PMA awards for Editorial and Design, we are proud to have won one Gold, four Silver and two Bronze awards.

“We love helping families in the communities we serve to connect and grow together.” – Jacky Dooly Martin, Co-Publisher
