it talks sense about how to raise kids, communication and the future of our country.

Press Release Body = Maybe Wendy Garrido inherited the magazine gene from her
parents, who both worked at Newsweek magazine in New York. In any case, the Puget
Sound resident is launching North Star FamilyMatters with a vision toward changing
the future of children and families.

As publisher and co-founder, Wendy seems aligned with other University of Chicago
grads destined to forge a unique path in the world. \"The University of Chicago
places a high value on critical thinking skills and individual perspectives,
encouraging us to move beyond the norm. This magazine will impact parents and
children to move beyond the norm as well." Her intelligence, background, and
insights make Wendy a great interview.

Why a magazine for parents and kids? Wendy is passionate about the subject. \"This
magazine is a result of my experience growing up as an empowered child, where I was
responsible for and supported in maintaining my love of learning and high

and kids with articles, tools, techniques, creative games, ideas, and the support
they need--it is interactive and dynamic. \"We don\'t see this as competition for the
other parenting magazines in the area, but as an enriching and much-needed addition

or drugs to affirm their self-esteem. They are in touch with their natural love of
learning, so they are self-motivated and know that they have something important to

North Star FamilyMatters is a family affair: Sue Woodward, Wendy\'s mother is the
managing editor and author of the series, Atlanta Finds her Power, while Wendy\'s
French husband, Prem Carnot, is the business manager, bringing a diverse background
in finances, marketing, and customer service.

North Star FamilyMatters will be distributed in the Seattle area initially,
expanding to the rest of the Puget Sound region by year\'s end, and then branching
out nation-wide in order To Inspire Conscious Parenting and Empowered Kids.
