Industry = Media
Press Release Summary = New magazine is knocking the socks off west coast readers as 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 self-esteem. I want tomorrow\'s kids to move away from drugs, alcohol, and teen sex toward healthier choices because they value who they are as individuals, feel confident in their interactions with the world and are inspired to contribute their unique gifts.\"
North Star FamilyMatters is unique to the area because it is geared to both parents 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 to address the emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual needs of today\'s children."
With a January 2007 launch, the magazine has a professional, up-scale look with a focus on inspiring conscious parenting and empowered kids. What is an empowered kid? \"Empowered kids are secure in their value as individuals, not looking toward peers 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 contribute.\"
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.
