Autumn / Winter 2003
JUNO is a magazine with a natural approach to family life. It aims to inspire and support parents as they journey through the challenges of parenting by sharing fresh perspectives in this fast-paced technological world and creating a non-judgemental community. There are regular columns on teens, birth, home-education, natural health and nutrition as well as book reviews, craft ideas, interviews and recipes. A wide range of features bring many voices to readers with beautiful images and illustrations to inspire and lift the soul.
JUNO is a different magazine because it focuses on families sharing experiences rather than experts telling you “how to”. It is suitable for families with children of all ages and recognises that family life can mean different things to different people. The JUNO ethos is that you do not need to “buy” to be a good parent. It is run by a small, family team with young children themselves who like to build relationships with writers and companies, thus ensuring that the JUNO ethics pervade publication and marketing of the magazine.
In the Early Spring issue of JUNO, Gaby Sweet shares the beautiful truths of women’s bodies; Karen Hodgson celebrates her love for her adopted children; Genevieve Seri suggests setting up a toddler group that uplifts both parent and child; and Sarah Ockwell-Smith explores the taboo subject of second baby guilt.
