Letter From The Editor

I hope your holidays were full of family, feasts and forty winks! My sisters and I spent Christmas together afterwhich I hosted a huge New Year’s party in celebration of Clara’s and Lindsay’s 25th birthdays. We had a great time and so glad to be joined by so many friends and family!

This month marks the start of the school year’s second half and our annual Education issue. As always, we’ve compiled an extensive guide of bay area schools. From early learning to college preparatory, you’ll find more than 50 programs for you to consider for the coming year. It starts on page 14 and continues throughout the issue.

For high schoolers, this month is the start of the SAT and ACT testing cycle. For those students who are beginning the college application process, we’ve put together a checklist of items to get organized for the admissions process. Crosscheck your student’s list with ours on page 16.

Allergies are becoming more and more commonplace and this month Dr. Bill Miller introduces us to the concept of the hygiene hypothesis. Has our culture’s resistent to microbial exposure contributed to this rise in allergies? See what the doctor says on page 44.

The term bully has permiated the lexicon in recent years as I’m sure you know. But this month, we talk about bullying and leadership and how qualitites of bullies can be transformed and redirected to created future leaders. See what I’m talking about on page 22.

As parents we’re always striving to keep our youngs one as safe as possible. But new parents may unknowingly be exposing their newborns to dangers while they sleep. On page 30 read what you could be doing to make sure your bundle of joy is safe while he sleeps.

After another wonderful year, I’m excited to welcome in 2015 with our readers and hardworking staff!

There’s so much on the horizon for Tampa Bay Parenting and I look forward to sharing it with you!

In our Deadly Mistake article in our November 2014 issue, we failed to list All Children’s Hospital as a Pediatric Trauma Center and ER.
