About Orlando Parenting

Orlando Parenting launched in May 2023 and is a sibling-publication to Tampa Bay Parenting Magazine, Tampa’s premier resource for parents and families since 2007.

Orlando Parenting is an online publication right now, but plans are in the works to begin publishing a print magazine soon. Our content is curated and written by local parents, for local parents. We are not only parents, but our core team of writers and creators have professional backgrounds in television and print journalism. When it comes to being parents and raising families, pretty much we’ve been there/done that already, and we have access to a wide range of experts when it’s simply not our place to give an opinion or our area of expertise.

We’re not ‘influencers’, we are insiders. We go beyond the pretty pictures on social media. It’s not our job to influence what you do, but rather provide you with expert backed information to help make your life as parent a bit easier and even a bit more fun!

We’re Local Orlando Parents.

Orlando Parenting was created for busy parents who want information they can trust about raising responsible and healthy children and teens while having fun enjoying all that Orlando has to offer.

Orlando Parenting launched in May 2023, a sister-publication of Tampa Bay Parenting, which has been producing award-winning family content since 2007. Our team of writers and experts provide practical, positive ideas for dealing with the big stuff and even the everyday things in life whether it’s what to pack for lunch or what to do this weekend.

Written by local parents for local parents.

We take our editorial responsibility seriously.

Orlando Parenting is committed to providing accurate and engaging content for families in the Orlando area. We recognize when it is time to loop in the experts for advice and we have a vast network of physicians, educators, psychologists, sleep specialists, and more to refer to.

We also turn to other local parents to share their bright ideas like quick and healthy dinner recipes or stories about the amazing things people are doing to make Orlando the awesome place it is to raise a family.

While we sometimes publish content that has been sponsored by our marketing partners, our strict guidelines demand we only accept expert-backed articles that are relevant to our readers and truthful. We will always indicate when an article is sponsored.

Facts matter.

Orlando Parenting’s team of experienced editors fact check all our content and provide a critical layer of review to ensure content integrity.

Our editorial team works hard researching all statements of fact to ensure that news and information presented in our articles is accurate and comprehensive and statistics are properly sourced and up to date.

Not just opinions. Expertise.

Orlando Parenting relies on experts to make sure we get things right. Content requiring medical and subject matter expertise are reviewed by recognized experts with up-to-date credentials and certifications, a science-backed view of health and parenting topics, and a desire to share accurate information.
