Audience Participation! — Redesign Feedback

April10PLCover.jpgBig news!! The ParentLife team is working diligently on redesiging our magazine for the March 2011 issue … and in order to the best we can, we need your help! We want to be sure our magazine is meeting the needs of our readers … so we want to hear from you! 

How can you help? By grabbing your most recent issue of ParentLife (needs to be a 2010 issue) and taking a few minutes to answer the following five questions. (If you don’t have a recent issue of ParentLife, e-mail me at and I’ll send a pdf of January 2010 your way.)

  1. What do you see of the design of the cover and interior of the magazine that needs to be updated to fit current magazine trends and appeal to parents?
  2. What types of content would you like to see in ParentLife features?
  3. Are there any departments you think are not effective/helpful? Are there any departments you think are worthy of adding on a monthly basis?
  4. How could we “redesign” our “A Life of Worship” department (p. 47) and our Growth Spurts section (pp. 7-17) to make them more helpful for parents?
  5. How could ParentLife better integrate the spiritual into its content?
