  • Where to find discounted admission prices this August

    July has been an unusually wet month, but if history is any indicator, August will still be a scorcher. As such, two of our favorite outdoor destinations in Dallas are offering admission deals to get visitors through the gates — and you just might want to take advantage. Have a big family? Seize this affordable opportunity to take out all of your kids for a fraction of the cost. You may be sweating, but your wallet won’t be.

  • Q&A with Mothers' Milk Bank of North Texas
    August 1–7 is World Breastfeeding Week, so to celebrate we contacted Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas, one of only 14 milk banks in the country (and one of two in Texas, the only state with more than one milk bank). If you have extra breast milk chilling in the freezer, read on: Amy Vickers, executive director of MMBNT, tells us how breastfeeding moms in Dallas-Fort Worth can use their excess milk to save lives.
  • Shape up lunchtime with these fun, new lunchboxes
    We already did some of your back-to-school shopping for you (you're welcome). Your kid will look sharp at lunchtime with one of these 13 lunchboxes, all available locally or made by a company based in Dallas-Fort Worth.
  • 12 water parks and destinations for families
    Dallas-Fort Worth is packed full of water parks, so we’ve collected a few of our favorite destinations, including wake parks, stand-alone surfing rides and the biggest parks with the most daring slides. Stay the weekend at one of the local resorts with spectacular water parks of their own, get more out of your day with special events like outdoor movies over the water, or take it easy with paddleboats.
  • Cool off at these 20 spray parks around DFW
    As the summer heats up, we know it gets harder to entertain the kids, so trade the sprinklers and backyard water hose for fun romp through an interactive water fountain, splash pad or spray park near you. We gathered a few of our favorite locales that are unaffected by water restrictions and have generous open times – and best of all, entry is absolutely free.
  • Use our map to plan your next adventure

  • Teaching your child to be a savvy conversationalist
    “How old are you?” Corretta Turner asks a young boy. “He’s 12,” interjects his mother. Sound familiar? Turner, a Dallas-based speech communications coach, says this refrain is all too common: A well-meaning parent answers for a child who is clearly capable of responding on his own, and then wonders why the child is not a more confident speaker.
