I love traveling. I love the excitement of new places, meeting new people and sharing experiences. I have had the pleasure of traveling around the world with my children and grandchildren. 

Traveling with children has special challenges and unique joys as you see things through the their eyes. We discuss some of these challenges and provide you with ideas for great vacations, near and far.

Sparking your child’s passions can lead to learning! We would love to hear from you about your successes in this area. Tell us your story, and you may find yourself in a future story in one of our issues. Email our Managing Editor at jeanne@touchpointis.com with your story.

I wanted to share some important days to remember in March:

March 2 is National Read Across America Day – Start a tradition of discussing your favorite books from when you were a kid with your family at dinner!

March 2 is National World Teen Mental Wellness Day – Check out our 2019 Health and Wellness issue on our website for tips and tools.

March 12 is Working Mom’s Day. We all know that all moms are working moms, so we salute you all!

March 23 is National Puppy Day. Look for a photo contest on our website to celebrate this day!

March 30 is National Take a Walk in the Park Day and Manatee Appreciation Day. We are lucky enough to live in a part of the world where we can appreciate manatees in person!

March 31 is National Crayon Day, so break out those creative waxy sticks and make something fun to put on the refrigerator! Send us your pictures, and you may win a prize!  @parentmagazinesflorida #pmfcrayonday

Wishing you wonderful adventures!
