City Parenting

Here are my Top 10 reasons why I love city parenting. What would you add to the list?

1. A dozen parks and playgrounds within a one-mile radius of our house (most with sprinklers!)
2. Museums, universities, and libraries steps from our front door
3. Interesting neighbors
4. Frequent city festivals and cultural events
5. Walking more than driving
6. Coffee shops everywhere for my caffeine fix
7. Lots of independent bookstores, retailers, and restaurants
8. Strong sense of community in the city
9. Variety and abundance of class offerings and resources for kids
10. Spontaneous learning moments fueled by the vibrancy of the city


  1. Farmer's Markets!

  2. I love living and homeschooling in the city for all the reasons you mentioned (and Farmer's Markets). Our current city is small but it's big enough to have city energy. We love to go camping to enjoy the beautiful wild nature, but every day I love living in-city.

  3. Thanks for the comment, T.L! I enjoy your blog! - Kerry
