Philadelphia Family Helps Local Parents Make Informed Decisions.

Whether it’s tips from toddlers to teens, staying healthy, picking a new school or, of course, things to do with kids around town, Philadelphia Family is here to help with our popular website, email newsletters, social media, events, and guides. We meet parents right where they are. We curate Philly’s top family-friendly events, hidden gems and powerful stories. Each month, we reach thousands of local parents, helping them make parenting a little easier … and a lot more fun. See for yourself!

Who are we?

To put it simply, we are just like you. We began as a local Facebook Group, and have grown a community of parents dedicated to our families, our homes, and – when we find the time – to ourselves. Philadelphia Family, and sister brands, Main Line Parent, and Bucks County Parent are published by Family Focus Media, a team of creative, motivated women who channel their shared passions for family and community connection to make great things happen! Meet the team.

Who is welcome?

Family Focus Media is committed to building kind, helpful, and inclusive communities with Main Line Parent, Philadelphia Family (Philly Family), and Bucks County Parent. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are imperative values for our Members and Sponsors. Participation in our Communities requires respect, positive exchange, and support related to accessibility, ethnicity, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

What do we offer?

Philadelphia Family‘s calling card is our dynamic nature, reaching out to our local community through a wide range of platforms. Every day in Philadelphia, families of all ages and stages turn to us for connection and advice. We are building a diverse network of people across Philadelphia County, inclusive of all income levels, and every possible definition of what a family is, who support each other through one of the most difficult and rewarding experiences in life. We leverage our website, email newsletters, social media, traditional media, and events to serve our readers while driving awareness and conversion for the businesses and nonprofit organizations who support our mission.


This website is more than just our online home, its a resource in its own right. Updated multiple times a week, our posts include event round-ups, spotlights on local businesses, Philly Family Members, tips and tricks for common parenting pitfalls, and more.
