We are so grateful to share our November issue with you. November is a special month for us – it ushers in the holiday season, starting with Thanksgiving. It is also the month we exercise our civic duty in voting, and honor our veterans. All of these events offer great conversation points within your family.

This year, we were unable to provide the list of volunteer opportunities that we normally offer in this issue, due to the ever-changing nature of the pandemic. We have shared ways to show your gratitude and show your civic responsibility. We also expect that for many of us, Thanksgiving will look and feel differently. We have some ideas for new traditions, and ways to take the stress out of the holiday. Give yourself permission to make it special in your own way instead of what you think you have to do. Embrace the time with your family and relax and enjoy.

Last month we welcomed a new social media manager to our team. Welcome Alejandra Galan! She is also the editor of our weekly newsletter. Like and follow us on Facebook and Instagram, and let us know what you would like to see! We are still running our cover contests! Come to the contest page on www.parentmagazinesflorida.com to submit your family or children, and to vote for your favorites!!

Thank you for your continued support. We think of you every month as we pull together content for you. Let us know if we are covering what you want to know!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Dr. Barbara Holley
