Charlotte Parent magazine is made for parents like you — local, engaged, involved. A free and local publication since 1987, our monthly publications, website, newsletters and social media networks are created to help make life easier for parents navigating life in the Queen City. We are a one-stop parenting resource, with a daily calendar of events, locally generated blogs, directories and so much more. Owned by Morris Media Communications, we serve seven counties, including Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Union and York.

Our award-winning magazine provides 203,000 parents with local insight, resources and expert advice on raising children — from pregnancy to the teen years. We engage our readers through daily interactions on social networks, and provide information at their fingertips 24/7.

We are located at 214 W. Tremont Ave., Suite 303, Charlotte, NC 28203 | 704-344-1980
