Welcome! A Note From the Editor

A new digital home for Philadelphia Family and Main Line Parent.

Thanks for visiting FamilyFocus.org: the brand-new digital home of Main Line Parent and Philadelphia Family! We hope you’ll like this new, unified site as much as we do.


This new space is about highlighting the shared experiences that bind us together. Whether you’re in Bryn Mawr, Paoli, Rittenhouse Square, or Chestnut Hill, you’re part of our community. You have lots in common with your neighbors around the region, and you need to know what’s happening across the area, as well as in your local spot. These days, we can Skype with someone across the globe without a second thought. So why let lines on a map divide us?

gkswebheadshotFrom now on, we won’t. You’ll still get plenty of great information about what’s happening in Philly and the Main Line — and more of it, from a broader variety of places. This site will help you tailor your digital experience to reflect where you live, and what you do as a family. We’ve made a few changes, too, in how we deliver the information you count on:


Start your Monday with the best of the week’s events. Each week, we’ll have a great list of 15+ things to do in the area with your kids. From Monday to Friday, your calendar is covered.


Sign up for our newsletter to get the High Five. Once you’re on our list, you’ll get our exclusive list of the top local weekend events in your inbox every Wednesday afternoon. You can choose the Philly or Main Line version, and decide what else you want to get from us (including a new Sunday mini-magazine, so you can catch up with what you missed during the week).


Looking for the whole month? Become a member of Philadelphia Family or Main Line Parent and you’ll get a curated monthly events calendar, ready to print and put on the fridge (you can see examples here and here). Plus, we’ll send you our gorgeous magazine at home.


Coming soon: A place for you to connect with our business members.


We think this new site will help build a bigger, broader community of parents around the region, and we hope you’ll be an enthusiastic part of it. If you haven’t already, join us on Facebook in the Philly Family Community or Main Line Parent Community, and connect with thousands of other local parents for answers, advice, and support. See what we’re up to around town on Instagram: @PhillyFamilyMag and @MainLineParent.


Have a question, a suggestion, or just want to talk to a person? I’m always ready to listen, so email me. I’d love to hear what you think about our new look. Feel free to stop me if you see me out and about.


Thanks for being a part of our community, and happy holidays!
