You may or may not know it but I write for a magazine called Code Red. Unlike most magazines in the market that cater to the consumer in us, Code Red articles are about family values written from the point of view of both parents and children. I love it for its lack of crass commercialism. The latest issue with Chris Tiu on the cover is now out and available in National Bookstore. My article about parenting with purpose follows the theme leadership by example.
I’ve been given my assignment for the next issue, I’m almost done writing it but I have an option of submitting something for the sidebar of the pages where my article will appear. If you’re a parent and interested in giving your opinion and having it published, please post a comment in response to the question “Are we guilty of excessive consumerism and how do we teach our children to become wise consumers?” Please limit your comment to 150 words to avoid getting truncated. Also, please indicate the name you want published along with your opinion and the ages of your children. Something like this: Connie Veneracion, mother of 2 girls aged 16 and 15.
I’ll send all your comments to my editor, if there are more than she can publish (limited space in print unlike blogs), I’ll let her choose which ones should go on print. You know, so that if yours doesn’t get chosen, you can get blame her, not me. :mrgreen: Kidding, kidding. Carol is a great editor and I’m sure she’ll handle this more than fairly.
The issue that is currently in the market carries an insert that contains an articles on wholesome children’s activities including one on making paper toys.
If you want to check it out, you’ll find Code Red in National Book Store.
Looking forward to having your opinion published.
