For Modern Kids is your resource for all the things kids need and love.
We are here to be your go-to resource for when you need inspiration for a quick after-school snack, the coolest apps for toddlers (because we all need a break sometime, right?), and the best activities to beat boredom on those rainy days when the kids can’t get outside to play.
Time passes quickly, and as parents, we don’t want to waste one moment guessing at what our kids like. The good news is, you don’t have to! That’s what we are here for!
What do modern kids need?
We’re glad you asked! In a world full of constant stimulants, sometimes it’s a good idea to make sure we have the basics covered. Things like what chores should kids do at different ages and when should we tell them to put the computer (or tablet, or phone) down are just a few of the ways we offer suggestions and guidance for the things kids need.
What do modern kids want?
Oh boy, where do we begin? Kids crave fun, adventure, creativity, friends, and so much more. We strive to take the guess work out of figuring out the best gifts for kids, fun activities to play as a family, and delicious, kid-friendly recipes we know they’ll love.
The goal of For Modern Kids is to be your go-to authority for modern parenting help and suggestions by providing articles, videos, printable resources such as e-books, checklists and an active community.
As a parenting website, we are committed to providing high-quality, researched information to our readers. We are committed to giving parents information that is practical and useful.
We want you to know you are getting trust-worthy information from a source that has your child’s best interests in mind. We’re always open to feedback and suggestions from our readers to be sure we are always offering what you want.
Jennifer M., founder of For Modern Kids
Jennifer is a mother of four fun-loving kids, ranging in age from 9 months to 9 years old. She grew up in Chicago, left for college in a small Midwestern town (where she met and married her college sweetheart in her junior year) and now resides.
In college, she studied Family and Consumer Sciences with a concentration in merchandising, but knew from the moment she was expecting her first son that she wanted to be a stay at home mom. Through the years (and 3 kids later), she has made note of the things her kids and their friends constantly ask for. And being from a large family, she has also learned that in order to make her household run smoothly, everyone has to pitch in.
She admittedly is no expert, but she is excited to share what she has learned with other parents that need a resource for kids and the things they love.
