Palmetto Parent: Columbia's Complete Resource for Parents and Families

Palmetto Parent is the community's only print and online publication targeted exclusively to families in Columbia and the surrounding region. Our editorial focus provides readers with the most current, highest quality information, making Palmetto Parent a must-read for parents of children from birth to age 18. No other magazine gives families a local angle on children, entertainment, and things to do in such a fresh, readable style.

Throughout the year, we stay in step with what's going on in your life. We offer techniques to maximize the school-year experience, we present suggestions for holidays and summer pastimes, and we propose activities that will become new family traditions. Plus, we provide lots of information on managing finances, making "green" choices, celebrating birthdays, going to the doctor, and becoming a better parent whether your child is a newborn or an adolescent.

From our own experience as parents, we know how satisfying it is to acquire information from various sources in order to make smart decisions. In creating a magazine, we honor that same all-encompassing approach. We appreciate your thoughts and viewpoints and would love to hear what you enjoy already and what you believe would make Palmetto Parent an even more valuable resource for you and your children.
