Brain, Child Magazine Giveaway! The Magazine for Thinking Moms

I am a huge Brain, Child Magazine fan. HUGE.

Over the years I have read some really terrible “parenting” magazines. Most of the content was advertisements for MORE baby gear that I wouldn’t use and there seemed to be a canned formula and cycle to the articles that were printed. I have read more articles about how to take away the pacifier or how to plan an extravagant first birthday party over the years than I can count on all of my fingers and toes.

I discovered Brain, Child Magazine about four or five years ago when my youngest was a baby and I have been hooked ever since! Brain, Child really IS the magazine for thinking mothers. There is such a wide variety of content that I don’t feel like I am ever reading the same thing twice and it’s not full of ads for bright, plastic toys that say they’ll make my child smarter.

Just in the most recent, Spring ’09 issue, there are articles about what you should say to your children about your partying or just less responsible years before they came along, mothering when you don’t live with your children, when mommy has a potty-mouth, and weighing the choice whether or not to have children. You will NOT read any of that in the mainstream “parenting” magazines.

I am also happy to say that there ARE advertisements in Brain, Child Magazine, but they are few and far-between. I counted nine advertisements aside from the two “Marketplace” pages in the back of the magazine and I am also happy to report that NONE of the advertisements made my eyes hurt.

My fellow blogging mommies will appreciate that on the outside back cover of the Spring 2009 issue, there is a list of blogs written by mothers.

Are you now officially in love with Brain, Child Magazine like I am? If you’re not, go check out the highlights of the Spring 2009 Issue and catch up, will you?
