Issue 96 is out now

Welcome to The Green Parent Forum

A place where you can chat to like-minded parents, form new friendships, share ideas, events and recipes. Use the search tool to find a wealth of information from the past 10 years of forum discussions. Register today and become part of our supportive community.

After reading another thread I thought I would ask what other magazines everyone reads.  I love Green Parent (obviously), Organic Life and Country Smallholder.  I find them all very informative and positive.

I currently have GP (obviously!!), Move to the Country, Home Builder & Renovator and BBC Good Homes (which I only have for 1 year as they sent me such a good offer I couldn't refuse). Homebuilder and GP are my favs- I guess as most relevant to me at the moment. Move to the Country is nice but a little repetitive- maybe slighly more aimed at people who pick up the odd copy rather than a full subscription?

Starring members of the Cast:
Sebastian (2004), Felicity (2006), Tristan (2008)

Home educating, thought provoking parenting, healthy eating trying to be locavores- but following our own way

AND finally admitting to having a blog http://owngrown.blogspot.com

The Mother, Organic life, Natural health and I've just subscribed to the Ecologist.

Apart from GP I also read Organic Life and Juno. smile

Good Housekeeping, GP, Country Smallholder, BBC Wildlife and I get BBC Good Homes free for a year because of Tesco vouchers, but I won't bother again.  I am keen to see what CountryFile is like when it comes out in October, the ad looked good.  Also get SHE thanks to Tesco vouchers, but won't bother again, it's very repetetive and frankly these days, I've more important things to worry about than the latest shade of lipgloss or handbag!  I've evolved away from it!  Realy love Permaculture magazine too, it's so positive and full of inspirationi.  Oh, and Writers Magazine.  Heck, that's too many isn't it?   ???

I noticed someone mentioned Juno magazine, what's it like?

Wodgehog I'm impressed. With a large family and home edding how do you find time to read your lovely mags? Please let us in on the secret!!!!

Helenx

Hmm, slightly embarrassing!  I usually only get to read mags when I'm on the loo!  When the door is locked, that is a little bit of 'me time'!!   :D  Probably far too much information there, but you asked.  I think visitors find it a bit unsual to find such a well-stocked bookshelf in the bathroom, but everyone in the family has their 'favourites' there, Beanos, Aquilas, Racing Posts and my little collection!  I would really like a bidet, but the bookshelf would have to go and not sure if the sacrifice would be worth it!!

Oooh I know that feeling of peace and quiet in the bathroom. I escape there too.  I get GP and Dolls House World. Thinking about getting another magazine. What's Juno like?

How do you manage to get alone time in the toilet?? Tell me the secret! I always have an audience, usually a critically commenting audience at that.

I wait till they're all occupied in something and then LOCK THE DOOR!!  I have full admiration for anyone who can do their do's with an audience of little critics, but enough's enough when they're doing a running commentary!  Had to laugh the other week though when the little one came into the loo just as I was arranging a panty liner.  She didn't say anything, but watched carefully and the next day, she had put her pants on (even though she's not at all toilet trained), complete with a little strip of loo roll sticking out of the bottom!   ;D

My 3 years old one calls them "Mami's nappy" 

I have only just started reading Green Parent, I also recently bought Junior which I enjoyed although I bought it once when I was expecting my first and it just seemed like it had the same principles of mags such as mother and baby/practical parenting! (which I am also guilty of having read in the past!)
Also have recently been reading Natural health which I am loving, I am going to college in September to study anatomy and physiology which I am hoping will lead me on to complementary/holistic therapy in the future.

;D  Yes, you can sort of see why!  Some days of the month I feel as though I'd be better off wearing one of the baby's nappies!   ::)

I would highly recommend Juno magazine although it can be quite hardcore wink

I have mummy brain today - what do you mean by hardcore?
I find it a little too mainstream; is that what you meant?
